DHEA is a “pro-hormone” that is converted by the body into various body hormones such as cortisone, progesterone, testosterone, estrogen and all other sex and steroid hormones.

DHEA supplements are mainly used by some people who believe they can build muscle, improve sex drive, fight the effects of aging, and improve some health conditions. Here's a rundown of what science actually speaks about DHEA supplements and about their safety. Science and research have found this product to function as a precursor to male and female sex hormones including testosterone and estrogen. Precursors are basically substances that are converted by the body into a hormone. DHEA production generally peaks in the mid-20s and in most people, production and quality gradually declines with age. Also, along with DHEA production testosterone and estrogen production also generally declines with age. When you choose to use the DHEA supplements can increase the level of these hormones and this is why a number of claims have been made about their potential health benefits.

Good to know! A version of DHEA supplement known as 7-Keto has been widely promoted as an aid for reducing body fat and raising metabolism levels gradually. The main idea is that the leaner body tissue and higher metabolism will aid in burning calories more efficiently, making it easier for both lose weight and keep the extra unwanted weight gain off.

  • Anti-Aging Treatments
  • Treating Obesity
  • Improving Immune Function 
  • Improving Cardiovascular Health
