DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)

  • DHEA is made by the adrenal glands. Once DHEA enters the cells, it may be converted to testosterone, and estrogens.
  • DHEA enhances the immune system to help protect against infection, injury, and illness.
  • DHEA may also be helpful in enhancing energy and muscle strength.
  • DHEA may be beneficial in treating autoimmune disorders such as Crohn's, lupus, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • By age 40, DHEA has declined markedly.
  • Replacement results in immune enhancement, therefore making DHEA extremely important in cancer and infection prevention.
  • DHEA is a precursor to the sex hormones and is therefore an important building block in the production of these hormones.
  • DHEA helps the breakdown of fats and cholesterol, while reducing the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.
