STRENGTH OF BODY AND MIND - A DHEA diet helps promote strength and lean muscle mass. It also supports memory, mood, cognition and overall brain health.
BETTER BONES - In a controlled, randomized, double-blind, one-year supplementation trial in DHEA has helped support bone mineral density in the hips of older adults and spinal bone mineral density in older women.
KEEP YOUR HORMONES BALANCED - The DHEA is the body's most abundant circulating hormone, but its levels begin to decline over time. Supplementation supports healthy immune function, cardiovascular health, and sexual function.
DHEA, generated by the adrenal glands, is the most abundant steroid hormone in the blood. The body uses it in particular to produce testosterone and estrogen.
The natural production of DHEA begins to decrease very early. At the age of 40 the level of DHEA is only half of the optimal level. At 60, the body only manufactures 5 to 15% of what it produced at 20. It is present in the fetus then negligible during early childhood, it increases after 7 years in boys and girls to peak between 20 and 30 years.
Its production would gradually decrease with age. age but there is a large variation from one individual to another at the same age
Actions of DHEA:
-Improving energy level
-At the skeletal level: In women, especially between 70 and 79 years old, increased density of certain bones and therefore possible anti-osteoporotic effect but the intensity of this effect remains to be proven.
-At the level of the skin: the results seem convincing as much on the production of sebum as on the quality epidermis; there is therefore an effect on skin aging.
- Stimulation of libido in women.
- Possible positive effects on cognition (possible interests in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases?).
Efficacy and properties of DHEA:
1) Treat depression, erectile dysfunction, lupus, alleviate adrenal insufficiency, alleviate vaginal atrophy and loss of bone density in postmenopausal women.
- Depression: DHEA is used for depression.
- Erectile Dysfunction: A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 40 men with problems erection and whose blood test revealed an abnormally low level of DHEA gave appreciable results.
-Lupus: DHEA shows promise for mild and moderate cases of lupus . In a 12-month, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 381 women, DHEA was shown to be superior to placebo in relieving symptoms; two other smaller studies came to the same result. If DHEA does not manage to eliminate all the symptoms, it can certainly make it possible to reduce the taking of medication. It also appears to partially counteract the side effects of corticosteroids. Moreover, it is believed to be relatively harmless (or, in any case, much less than the drugs normally prescribed for lupus).
- Kidney failure: The usual replacement therapy for people whose adrenal glands are not functioning normally does not usually contain DHEA, which could explain some mood problems in these patients Recent research, conducted over four months, suggests that adding DHEA to this replacement therapy may improve sexual functioning and people's sense of well-being.
- Menopause: Three studies suggest that DHEA may slow or even reverse the effects of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Other research seems to indicate a positive effect on vaginal atrophy, in addition to osteoporosis.
2) Increase muscle strength, promote weight loss, boost the immune system , treat multiple sclerosis, prevent cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and breast cancer, slow aging and the progression of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.
3) Improve cognitive functions
The exact number of capsules to take should be determined by blood tests and the advice of a doctor. In general, take one (1) to three (3) capsules in the morning only.
