DHEA is an important adrenal hormone that supports healthy aging.*
DHEA levels decline with age and adrenal stress. DHEA supports
immune system and thyroid function, as well as memory and energy
About DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)
• DHEA is a steroid hormone produced from cholesterol by the
adrenal glands. It is the most abundant steroid in the bloodstream
and is present at even higher levels in brain tissue.
• DHEA is a precursor to many steroid sex hormones, including
estrogen and testosterone. With age, DHEA production declines
usually peaking between the ages of 25-30 and gradually falling
to a decline of 90% by age 60.
How DHEA works
• DHEA seems to support IGF-1 levels (insulin growth factor) and
support decreased levels of cortisol.* IGF-1 is the hormone, or
growth stimulating metabolite, produced by the metabolism of HGH,
and is responsible for the beneficial effects of elevated human
growth hormone. With aging there is a decline in DHEA and an
elevation of cortisol. High and prolonged levels of cortisol in the
bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been
shown to have negative effects such as:
› Impaired cognitive performance and suppressed thyroid function
› Blood sugar imbalances
› Decreased bone density and a decrease in muscle tissue
› Higher blood pressure and lowered immunity
• Elevating DHEA levels is a way to help manage high cortisol levels
and improve IGF-1production.*
Studies have shown that supplementing with DHEA may benefit:
• The immune system*
• Blood sugar metabolism and weight management*
• Brain and bone health*
• Heart health*
• Estrogen and testosterone levels*
Factors that contribute to low DHEA levels include:
• Aging, sugar, nicotine
• Caffeine, alcohol, nutritional imbalance
• A vegetarian diet low in cholesterol and healthy fats
Other ingredients: vegetable cellulose (capsule), vegetarian leucine.
