Description

Details

DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a naturally occurring compound found in the body that is mostly synthesized in the adrenal glands. The adrenals are the glands that secrete hormones and are responsible for the body’s stress or “fight-or-flight” response. Circulating DHEA is used by many tissues such as skin, bone, ovaries and testes. It converts to other hormones such as estrogen and testosterone in both men and women which are then used for a wide variety of physiological processes. Supplementing with DHEA can be helpful for weight management, healthy aging, ongoing health and vitality, and a balanced stress response.

Certain situations can cause the body to slow its natural DHEA production, such as:

  • Aging
  • Emotional or physical stress
  • Some medications
  • Dieting or a vegetarian diet

Benefits of DHEA

  • Weight management – DHEA supports healthy fat burning and thermogenesis (the process by which the body raises its temperature or energy output, helping you to burn off more calories). It also supports healthy blood sugar control.*
  • Menopause/Perimenopause support – Helps to lessen the symptoms women occasionally experience with reduced estrogen production. DHEA also encourages a sense of well-being and supports bone health.*
  • Stress support – Physical and emotional stress can potentially interfere in the body’s natural production of DHEA. Supplementation may help maintain healthy levels of DHEA during these times by counteracting the effects of the stress hormone cortisol (produced by the adrenal glands).*
  • Medication treatment support – Can help support adrenal system during treatment with corticosteroid drugs.*
  • Healthy aging – Helps to maintain healthy levels of estrogen and testosterone as we age. It can help preserve vitality, bone /muscle health, and sexual health.*

Recommended Use: Take one capsule per day with a meal, or as directed by your health care professional. DHEA is best taken in the morning or earlier in the day due to its stimulatory effect on metabolism and the brain. 

Do not use if pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant, unless recommended by your health care practitioner.
