Importance of Maintaining DHEA Levels
Levels of DHEA in the blood are high in early adulthood, but these levels steadily decline thereafter. Studies indicate that maintaining optimal DHEA levels offers a variety of health benefits, including positive effects on mood and quality of life, maintaining lean muscle mass and more. Youthful circulating levels of DHEA support overall well-being and sexual function as well.
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 promote healthy sexual function, 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.
