DHEA – Supplemental Sex Hormones

Available in capsules, topical cream, tablets, and as an addition to many combination supplements, DHEA is thought to be a wonder drug that could possibly be a genuine ‘fountain of youth’. DHEA is actually a steroid hormone that is naturally produced by the body’s adrenal glands. Once produced, the body turns it into testosterone and estrogen, male and female sex hormones. DHEA supplementation is said to help with numerous conditions, from cancer and arthritis to schizophrenia and osteoporosis.

Supplemental DHEA is thought to help boost the body’s immune system, increase muscle mass, help with irregular menstrual cycles, depression and menopause, and even help correct erectile dysfunction. Many people swear by DHEA for longevity and a strong libido.
