is a steroid naturally produced by the adrenal glands and some neurons in the body. It is synthesised from cholesterol and secreted in the sulfated form as DHEAS. The serum concentration of DHEA reaches its peak at around 30 years of age and decreases radically as one ages. This digression conflicts with the stability of other steroid hormone levels, such as cortisol and aldosterone, leading to the suspicion that aging is just a sign of "DHEA deficiency".

DHEA is effective in the body primarily because it is converted into the active sexual hormones of estradiol and testosterone. We don't produce the same amount of DHEA hormones in our bodies.

In recent years, research has focused on how DHEA is metabolised following oral and intravenous administration. According to results of studies conducted in 2000 with 280 volunteers over 60 years of age, taking 50 mg of DHEA per day can prevent osteoporosis, lead to better skin hydration and significantly increase libido (1). Another study shows that when older people are given a daily dose of 25 to 50 mg, DHEA concentrations similar to those in young people can be achieved without noticeable side effects (2).

In June 2001 an American journal published the results of the "PAQUID" (Personnes Agées Quid) study, which was conducted over 8 years with 290 older people. According to these results, DHEA increases the lifespan of some people. The scientists also believe that a small amount of this hormone in the blood can increase tobacco's effects on the body (3).

Numerous studies pose the hypothesis that DHEA can also prevent several types of cancer, viruses and atheromatosis, as well as treat some cases of genetic obesity {Kalimi and Regelson (4), Thijssen and Nieuwenhuyse (5)}. The researchers believe that taking DHEA can stimulate motivation, activity and competitiveness, as well as aggressiveness and muscle strength.

Current studies from Japan and Italy confirm that in cases of adrenopause taking DHEA supplements can be used as an anti-aging treatment. It significantly improves the sense of well-being and lipid metabolism in men (6-7).

A balanced dose of DHEA poses no health risks. It reduces and may prevent the deterioration of tissue as well as bodily and mental functions related to aging. The occurrence of age-related illnesses can be slowed down.

DHEA levels vary from person to person. The supplement should be taken following a saliva test or other biological test to determine the exact level of this hormone in the body.

DHEA supplements are chemical molecules synthesised in a lab.
