DHEA (25mg) Overview
DHEA, short for dehydroepiandrosterone, is a natural hormone produced in the adrenal glands, gonads and brain that converts into estrogen and testosterone in the body. DHEA levels naturally decline with age and so do the dependent hormones produced from DHEA conversion. Often times this decline results in less energy, a weakened immune system, a reduced sex drive and general feelings of discomfort. Supplementing with DHEA can help fix these problems by increasing the levels of testosterone in the body. In addition to improving sexual well being and increasing energy levels, DHEA supplementation has been reported to help ease depression, improve memory, boost physical performance and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. *
DHEA Effects & Benefits
Research has linked DHEA supplementation with a strengthened immune system and increased daily energy levels. DHEA works on a cellular level by and improving macrophage function, allowing the immune system to operate at the highest possible level. The immune response is typically weakened in middle-aged and elderly individuals whose bodies are naturally producing less DHEA, which is why supplementing with DHEA can truly make a difference in their health and well being. *
DHEA has also been shown to increase levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) in the body, primarily from an increase in testosterone resulting from DHEA conversion. Natural levels of IGF decrease with age, manifesting in a loss of lean body mass and heightened accumulation of body fat. Increased IGF levels are also associated with decreased levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and controlling cortisol can help promote healthy weight management and protect the brain against stress-induced diseases. *
Who should supplement with DHEA?
DHEA supplementation is typically recommended for those who are older than 30 years of age and are affected by decreased energy levels and/or a decreased sex drive. Quality DHEA supplements like the one provided by BodyStrong can truly make a difference for those suffering from these conditions but don’t want to resort to expensive medical treatment or prescription medication.
