DHEA is a natural steroid hormone that is synthesized from cholesterol by the adrenal gland. DHEA acts as an antagonist for glucocorticosteroid hormones and is the precursor for other important steroid hormones such as estradiol, other estrogens, and testosterone. It can also indirectly influence progesterone synthesis via a feedback mechanism in which pregnenolone is converted to progesterone in the presence of high DHEA levels. In addition to its’ role in hormone regulation‚ DHEA may support immune function‚ brain function‚ bone metabolism‚ blood lipid metabolism‚ energy metabolism‚ help regulate normal blood sugar and insulin levels‚ and help maintain a lean body mass.
DHEA levels decline with aging, as well as under a variety of physiological stress conditions such as acute and chronic infections, and trauma. Vegetarians also have decreased DHEA levels. Douglas Labs DHEA tablets contain the highest purity DHEA, and are produced under strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
