Health Weight Loss clients are well aware of the multiple benefits of DHEA

Well, Why DHEA?

Helpful in increased energy and reduced heart disease risk to greater fat loss and better immune function. DHEA has also been shown to improve moods and reduce belly fat effectively.

How does DHEA reduce belly fat and body fat?

To reduce the belly fat or the body fat, DHEA reduces the stress hormone cortisol.

We all know, sometimes our body has tendencies of eating at the wrong time, eating due to sudden hunger and those hunger cravings. Many of us have experienced this increase in what it is termed emotional eating when the body is stressed and tensions.

We may have also noticed that we do not sleep as well when we are stressed or are having tension. Both of these experiences often lead to increase in belly fat.


Cortisol is a steroid hormone that regulates a wide range of processes throughout the body, including metabolism and the immune response.

Think of cortisol as nature’s built-in alarm system. It’s your body’s main stress hormone.

Good to know!

Your adrenal glands triangle-shaped organs at the top of your kidneys make cortisol.

Cortisol plays an important role in a number of things your body does, some being:

  • Manages how your body uses carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
  • Keeps inflammation down
  • Regulates your blood pressure
  • Increases your blood sugar (glucose)
  • Controls your sleep/wake cycle
  • Boosts energy so you can handle stress and restores balance afterward

Health issues with too much cortisol generation in the body are listed below:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Headaches
  • Heart disease
  • Memory and concentration problems
  • Problems with digestion
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Weight gain

We always recommend a lab test to determine your levels of your DHEA. Also, opt for a 24 - hour cortisol test to check your stress levels. Avoid trying to place guesses about your health or to self-medicate.
