DHEA 100 Caps (15 mg)
DHEA is the body's most abundant circulating steroid hormone. But as we age, DHEA levels begin to decline. Supplementing with DHEA can help support healthy hormone levels, promote healthy immune function, circulatory health, healthy mood, lean muscle mass, sexual function, and more.
Benefits at a glance:
• Maintains youthful DHEA hormone balance
• Encourages healthy immune function and cardiovascular health
• Helps support and maintain lean muscle mass
• Promotes healthy mood, sexual function, well-being, and 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 offer beneficial effects such as promoting optimal sexual health, improving memory collection and mood, and may also have beneficial effects on the brain. DHEA has beneficial cardiovascular effects. It also promotes healthy bones. 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.
When it comes to developing a personalized, effective DHEA regimen, regular blood testing is highly recommended both for dosage accuracy and blood level monitoring. Because of the overwhelming evidence connecting low levels of DHEA to age-related factors, Life Extension suggests that most people over age 40 begin DHEA supplementation. The starting supplemental dose of DHEA for most people is 15 to 25 mg a day, though some people will require higher doses to reach youthful levels.
Suggested Use: The exact number of capsules to be take should be determined by blood testing and the advice of a physician. Generally, take one (1) to three (3) capsules in the morning only. DHEA serum blood tests are suggested 3 to 6 weeks after initiation DHEA replacement therapy to optimize individual dosing.
