DHEA HORMONE SUPPLEMENTS

 

The use of hormone supplements is hotly debated amongst both scientists and health professionals.

DHEA - [dehydroepiandrosterone], is produced in the adrenal glands. Although DHEA is regarded as a weak male hormone, it is present in both sexes. DHEA remains inactive whilst circulating the body, until it reaches tissue that needs it. It also acts as a precursor to some other hormones, including both testosterone and oestrogen.

DHEA declines with age in both men and women. Many studies have shown oral DHEA can improve neurological function, immune function, stress disorders, and protect against some types of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

DHEA is the most abundant of all steroids. DHEA is made by cholesterol when the pituitary releases ACTH, which in turns signals the cholesterol. DHEA is involved in the manufacturing of testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and coritcosteroids. The decline of DHEA parallels that of growth hormone. By age 65, the body makes only 10-20% of DHEA that was made at age 20.

In antiaging programs, DHEA supports anti-aging with stress response, immune system decline, and preventing certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease in men, cancer and multiple sclerosis.

There is now evidence that too much DHEA can be harmful.
