DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is an important adrenal hormone that supports healthy aging. DHEA levels decline with age and stress. It is the most abundant steroid in the bloodstream and is present at higher levels in brain tissue. DHEA supports immune system and thyroid function, as well as memory and energy function; it is also 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.

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

How DHEA Works Optimal levels of DHEA support balanced cortisol levels. As we age, levels of DHEA decrease naturally. Along with additional stress, low levels of DHEA may lead to higher levels of cortisol, our stress hormone, and accelerated aging. 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

Factors that contribute to low DHEA levels include:

  • Aging
  • Caffeine, alcohol, sugar, nicotine, and nutritional imbalance
  • A vegetarian diet low in cholesterol and healthy fats
