|DHEA, produced by our adrenal
glands, is the most common hormone in our bodies. It is present in larger
amount in healthy individuals. DHEA is a precursor for the manufacture
of many other hormones in the body, such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone,
cortisone, and others.
DHEA appears unique among hormones. Just
as Vitamin E does not have a specific metabolic role (it is only proven
essential as a general antioxidant), DHEA may serve an equally general
purpose. "DHEA is the first example of a buffer action for hormones that
I know of," states William Regelson. "It is a broad-acting hormone that
only demonstrates itself under a specific set of circumstances. In that
way, it is like a buffer against sudden changes in acidity or alkalinity.
That is why as you get older, you're much more vulnerable to the effects
of stress. As DHEA declines with age, you are losing the buffer against
the stress-related hormones. It is the buffer action that helps prevent
us from aging.
One capsule provides: Dehydroepiandrosterone 25 mg & Starch 195 mg
Directions: As a dietary supplement for mature adults take one capsule by mouth in the morning. DHEA, excreted by adrenal glands, is the most common hormone in the human
body. It is a precursor for our body,s natural synthesis of as many as 18 other hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, etc. The DHEA's excretion gradually decreases as we age, and at the age of sixty it becomes hardly detectable. The body is capable of utilizing supplemental DHEA, as if it were produced by its own glands.
The most important functions and benefits of maintaining appropriate DHEA levels in the serum may be summarised as follows:
