A hormone naturally produced by the body, DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is synthesized from cholesterol by the adrenal gland. It plays a crucial role in the synthesis and regulation of the steroids and sex hormones in the body such as estradiol and other estrogens, and testosterone. DHEA can also indirectly influence progesterone synthesis through a feedback mechanism whereby pregnenalone is converted to progesterone based on DHEA levels.
Plasma levels of DHEA begin to decline progressively with age starting around age 40. Research shows that a 70 year old produces about 90% less DHEA than a person in his or her 20s. Other factors that contribute to low DHEA levels include consumption of sugar, nicotine, caffeine and alcohol. DHEA levels also decline under a variety of conditions of physiological stress, such as acute and chronic infections, and trauma. Vegetarians have been shown to have decreased DHEA levels as well.
Patient One DHEA is 98.5% pure and is micronized to increase absorption.
Take 1 vegetarian capsule daily, preferably with a meal, as a dietary supplement or as directed by a qualified health care professional.
