DHEA is the body’s most abundant circulating hormone. But DHEA levels begin to decline over time. Supplementing with DHEA can help support healthy hormone levels and promote healthy immune function, circulatory health, healthy mood, lean muscle mass, and more.
Since levels of the DHEA hormone decline with age, maintaining a youthful balance offers many health benefits.
- Maintains youthful DHEA hormone balance
- Encourages healthy immune function & cardiovascular health
- Helps support & maintain lean muscle mass
- Promotes healthy mood
Body composition, mood & more
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 10 months of DHEA supplementation in elderly individuals resulted in increased strength and lean muscle mass from resistance exercise. DHEA regimens support memory and mood, as well as have a beneficial impact on cognition and the brain.
Cardio, circulatory & bone health
DHEA has beneficial cardiovascular effects. It also promotes bone health. In a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial, one year of DHEA supplementation helped increase bone mineral density in the hips of older adults and spinal bone mineral density in older women.
DHEA: usage & safety precautions
In order to develop a personalized, effective DHEA regimen, regular testing of blood levels is highly recommended to determine the proper and accurate dosage. Because of the overwhelming evidence connecting youthful levels of DHEA with healthy longevity, Life Extension suggests that most people over age 40 begin DHEA supplementation.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
The exact number of capsules to be taken should be determined by blood testing and the advice of a physician. Generally, take one (1) to three (3) capsules in the morning only.
