What Is DHEA?
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced by your body’s adrenal glands. These are glands just above your kidneys.
DHEA supplements can be made from wild yam or soy.
Scientists don’t know everything DHEA does. But they do know that it functions as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, including testosterone, and estrogen. Precursors are substances that are converted by the body into a hormone.
DHEA production peaks in your mid-20s. In most people, production gradually declines with age.
WebMD has an extensive list of reasons why some people take DHEA. Among many reasons, DHEA is believed to promote healthy aging, well-being and support a balanced hormonal level.*
“DHEA is a “parent hormone” produced by the adrenal glands near the kidneys and in the liver. In men, DHEA is also secreted by the testes. It is changed in the body to a hormone called androstenedione. Androstenedione is then changed into the major male and female hormones.
DHEA levels seem to go down as people get older. DHEA levels also seem to be lower in people with certain conditions like depression. Some researchers think that replacing DHEA with supplements might prevent some diseases and conditions.”
