Dehydroepiandrosterone, commonly known as DHEA, is a natural substance produced primarily in the adrenal gland. As a prohormone, DHEA is a precursor to a great variety of beneficial steroids, which explains its wide range of benefits. Supplemental DHEA has been available since 1980 providing nutritional support of the immune system and memory, especially related to the aging process and occasional stress.
How Does It Work?
Metabolized from pregnenolone, the body's “master hormone,” natural DHEA is the precursor to more than 150 individual metabolites. DHEA plays an important role in the body's antioxidant defenses by supporting healthy superoxide dismutase (SOD), an important antioxidant enzyme. The body's DHEA levels peak during the third decade then naturally decline. Women lose DHEA much more quickly than men as they age. By the time both men and women reach 70, however, DHEA production has decreased by 80 percent. Oxidative stress which accompanies immune response may diminish DHEA synthesis.
Supplemental DHEA has been shown to support healthy aging by helping to maintain DHEA levels. In clinical and laboratory research, DHEA supplementation has also been shown to support healthy production of immune system cells, including T-cells, B-cells, natural killer cells, and monocytes in postmenopausal women and elderly men.
DHEA-5 provides unique nutritional support of healthy aging, immune system, and memory.
