DHEA is produced by the adrenal gland and is a naturally occurring androgen within the human body in both males and females. It is the second most prevalent hormone and the most prevalent androgen. It is a necessary building block for a variety of compounds manufactured in the human body. It is believed that as we age, the progressive deficiency of this hormone may be associated with the symptoms of aging. Supplemental DHEA can restore normal levels of this important naturally occurring hormone.
According to biochemists, DHEA de-excites the bodyâ s processes and some of the diseases of aging caused by the runaway production of nucleic acid, fats and hormones. DHEA regulates their production and may slow down aging. DHEA may have a significant impact on fat loss & lean body mass. More recent therapies for weight control have been limited to blocking the G6PD fat producing enzyme. DHEA may increase the bodyâ s ability to transform food into energy, burn off excess fat and prevent fat from accumulating in the first place. DHEA may block cortisolâ s catabolic effects on muscle tissue. Increasing concentrations of DHEA stimulates insulin-like growth factor synthesis. This translates to anti-catabolic actions that may prevent muscle wasting and promote lean muscle tissue maintenance and growth.
