DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is the sole precursor hormone responsible for the production and regulation of every other steroid and sex hormone in the body. It has recently been discovered that bodily levels of DHEA decline with age. A typical 70-year old will have about 5-10% the DHEA of what a typical 20 year old produce.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone made by the human body and secreted by the adrenal gland. DHEA is your body's most abundant naturally occurring hormone. On demand, it can convert to the hormone most vital to men. Studies suggest that DHEA begins to decline from age 25 and continues to diminish throughout your lifetime. DHEA serves as a precursor to female and male sex hormones (estrogens and androgens).
By replacing your body's natural DHEA levels you help support your immune system, improve mental focus, maintain your ideal weight and, most importantly, improve your stamina. DHEA supplementation may provide your body with the essential DHEA it needs to function optimally.
