DHEA is a steroid hormone from which the body makes other hormones, including testosterone and estradiol. It is the most abundant steroid in the bloodstream; high concentrations are found in the brain. The body’s DHEA production peaks at puberty in women and at about age 20 in men, then decreases with age.
Since DHEA is not a patentable substance, there have been only a few human clinical studies. But these have revealed several areas of application: treatment of Lupus, alleviating depression and improving mood, strengthening immunity, increasing muscle mass, reducing lipodystrophy in HIV patients, decreasing cholesterol and LDL after menopause, alleviating erectile dysfunction, improving sex drive in women with adrenal insufficiency.
Studies in rodents suggest additional applications: inhibiting tumors of breast, lung, colon, liver, skin and lymphatic tissue; protecting against lethal viral and bacterial infections; reducing overeating, hyperlipidemia, obesity, diabetes, and atherosclerosis; increasing insulin sensitivity in diabetes; increasing neuronal survival and differentiation.
Because its areas of application are so broad, many people use DHEA supplements for general health.
LifeLink’s DHEA is micronized to provide optimum bioavailability.
