DHEA

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)

DHEA Supplement (dehydroepiandrosterone) is an amazing natural hormone produced by the adrenal glands with numerous potential benefits. It is converted into androgens (male hormones) or estrogens (female hormones) in the cells. Our bodies produce less and less DHEA Supplement as we age. DHEA Supplement dietary supplements have been in use for a variety of reasons: To deter aging, improve sexual function/erectile dysfunction, treat cognitive decline, enhance athletic performance, facilitate weight loss, improve strength, treat osteoporosis, improve immunomodulation for rheumatologic conditions, and treat depression.

DHEA level in our body decrease as we get older, generally falling significantly by the time we are 30. Increasing DHEA Supplement levels have been shown to improve one's sense of well being, reduce body fat and improve skin tone and moisture, increase sex drive, improve immunity, enhance memory, and increase bone density.

Little is known about how DHEA Supplement works in the body. Confusing the picture is the fact that DHEA Supplement often has different effects in men, premenopausal women, and postmenopausal women. Supplementation with DHEA-S (a form of DHEA) has resulted in increased levels of testosterone and androstenedione, two hormones.

The conversion of DHEA Supplement into testosterone may account for the fact that low blood levels of DHEA Supplement have been reported in some men with erectile dysfunction. The findings of a double-blind trial using 50 mg supplements of DHEA Supplement taken daily for six months suggests that DHEA Supplement may improve erectile function in some men.

Some, but not all, clinical trials have found that DHEA Supplement supplementation lowers fat mass without reducing total body weight. In one trial, the reduction in fat mass occurred in men but not in women.

DHEA is believed to indirectly affect blood sugar levels, but information remains incomplete and contradictory. Attempts to affect blood sugar levels in humans have led to improvements, no effect, and, at very high amounts (1,600 mg DHEA Supplement per day), a worsening of tolerance to sugar.

DHEA modulates immunity. A group of elderly men with low DHEA Supplement levels who were given 50 mg of DHEA Supplement per day for 20 weeks experienced a significant activation of immune function. Postmenopausal women have also shown increased immune functioning in just three weeks when given DHEA Supplement in double-blind research.

Some reports have suggested that DHEA Supplement might reduce the risk of heart disease, perhaps by lowering cholesterol levels. DHEA Supplement may also be a blood thinner, an effect that in theory should help protect against heart disease. However, most research supports the idea that DHEA Supplement protects against heart disease only weakly for men, and not at all for women. In fact, higher levels of DHEA Supplement and DHEAS have been associated with cardiovascular risk factors in women, including high blood pressure and smoking. Moreover, DHEA Supplement has also been reported to lower HDL ('good' cholesterol). Until more is known, DHEA Supplement should not be used to protect against heart disease.

Claims have appeared that DHEA Supplement is an anti-aging hormone. However, the fact that young people have higher levels of DHEA Supplement than older people does not necessarily mean that supplementing DHEA Supplement will make people appear younger. In some, but not all, double-blind trials, DHEA Supplement has improved the sense of well being in elderly individuals. In one double-blind trial, DHEA Supplement supplementation did appear to reduce some of the adverse effects of aging, though it did not create 'supermen/superwomen.' In that trial, healthy elderly women and men were given either 50 mg of DHEA Supplement or a placebo daily for one year. In addition to a re-establishment of more youthful levels of DHEAS, slight increases were also observed in other hormones, such as testosterone and estrogens. In women over 70 years of age, bone mineral loss was improved. A significant increase in most measures of libido was also seen in these older women. Improvements of the skin were also observed in both women and men, but particularly in women, in terms of hydration, thickness, pigmentation and production of sebum (oily secretion that lubricates the skin and hair).

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), an autoimmune disease, has been linked to abnormalities in sex hormone metabolism. Supplementation with very large amounts of DHEA Supplement (200 mg per day) improved clinical status and reduced the number of exacerbations of SLE in a double-blind trial. A preliminary trial has confirmed the benefit of 50-200 mg per day of DHEA Supplement for people with SLE.

DHEA may play some role in protecting against depression. Low DHEA Supplement levels have been reported in older women suffering from this condition, though at least one report has linked severe depression to increased DHEA Supplement levels. After six months using 50 mg DHEA Supplement per day, 'a remarkable increase in perceived physical and psychological well-being' was reported in both men and women in one double-blind trial. In another double-blind trial, after only six weeks of taking DHEA Supplement at levels up to 90 mg per day, at least a 50% reduction in depression was seen in 5 of 11 participants. Other researchers have reported dramatic reductions in depression at extremely high amounts of DHEA Supplement (90-450 mg per day) given for six weeks to adults who first became depressed after age 40 (in men) or at the time of menopause (in women) in a double-blind trial. Limiting supplementation to only two weeks is inadequate in treating people with depression.

Despite the dramatic results reported in trials lasting at least six weeks, some experts claim that in clinical practice, DHEA Supplement appears to be effective for only a minority of depressed people. Moreover, due to fears of potential side effects, most healthcare professionals remain concerned about the use of DHEA. As with other uses of DHEA Supplement, depressed people should not take this hormone without supervision from a healthcare professional.

Where is DHEA Supplement found?
DHEA Supplement is produced by the adrenal glands. A synthetic form of this hormone is also available as a supplement in tablet, capsule, liquid, and sublingual form. Some products claim to contain "natural?DHEA Supplement precursors from wild yam. However, the body cannot convert these substances into DHEA Supplement (although a series of reactions in a laboratory can make the conversion).


Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) has been used in connection with the following conditions (refer to the individual health concern for complete information):

Who is likely to be deficient?
Meaningful levels of DHEA Supplement do not appear in food, and therefore dietary deficiency does not exist. Some people, however, may not synthesize enough DHEA. DHEA Supplement levels peak in early adulthood and then start a lifelong descent. By the age of 60, DHEA Supplement levels are only about 5?5% of what they were at their peak at younger ages. Whether the lower level associated with age represents a deficiency or a normal part of aging that should not be tampered with remains unknown.


People with true adrenal insufficiency (i.e., Addison's Disease; not the hypothetical adrenal "fatigue?or "burnout?that is sometimes incorrectly referred to as "insufficiency? have below normal levels of DHEA. When women with adrenal insufficiency were treated with 50 mg of DHEA Supplement every morning for three or four months, their DHEA Supplement and DHEAS levels returned to normal, with a simultaneous improvement in well-being and sexuality.

Some studies have reported lower DHEA Supplement levels in groups of depressed patients. However, in one trial, severely depressed people were reported to show increases in blood levels of DHEA. Despite these contradictory findings, a few clinical trials suggest that at least some people who are depressed may benefit from DHEA Supplement supplementation.

People with multi-infarct dementia (deterioration of mental functions resulting from multiple small strokes) may have lower than normal DHEAS levels, according to a preliminary trial.40 In this trial, intravenous injection of 200 mg per day of DHEAS for four weeks increased DHEAS levels and improved some aspects of mental function and performance of daily activities.

People infected with HIV and those with insulin-dependent diabetes, congestive heart failure, multiple sclerosis, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and a host of other conditions have been reported to have low levels of DHEA Supplement in most, but not all, studies. In most cases, the meaning of this apparent deficiency is not well understood.

Men under 60 years of age with erectile dysfunction have been found to have lower DHEAS levels than men without the condition.

Most, but not all, studies have found that people with Alzheimer's disease have lower blood DHEAS levels than do people without the condition.

How much is usually taken?
Most people do not need to supplement DHEA. The question of who should take this hormone remains controversial. Some experts believe that daily intakes of 5?5 mg of DHEA Supplement for women and 10?0 mg for men are appropriate amounts for people with deficient blood levels of DHEA Supplement or DHEAS. While a few researchers suggest supplementation with as much as 50 mg per day in postmenopausal women, others consider this level excessive. People should consult a doctor to have DHEA Supplement levels monitored before and during supplementation. Healthy people with normal blood levels of DHEA Supplement or DHEAS should not take this hormone until more is known about its effects. However, some doctors recommend DHEA Supplement supplementation for selected people with depression, autoimmune diseases, or other problems, even if their blood levels are normal.


People with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have been shown to improve after taking 100?00 mg per day of DHEA. Such large amounts should never be taken without medical supervision.

Discrepancies between label claims and actual DHEA Supplement content of DHEA Supplement supplements have been reported. Regrettably, the authors of this report failed to identify which brands were properly labeled and which were not.

Are there any side effects or interactions? Experts have concerns about the use of DHEA Supplement, particularly because long-term safety data do not exist.

Side effects at high intakes (50?00 mg per day) appear to be acne (in over 50% of people), increased facial hair (18%), and increased perspiration (8%). In a preliminary trial, DHEA Supplement was also reported to induce less common side effects, including breast tenderness, weight gain, mood alteration, headache, oily skin, and menstrual irregularity in some people. Since this trial was not controlled, some of these less common "side effects?might have occurred even with a placebo. A case of mania has been reported in an older man who took 200?00 mg of DHEA Supplement per day for six months. However, in that case report, other causes of mania could not be ruled out.

Significant increases in testosterone levels in both men and women have been reported in some trials. Other reports have found this change in women but not in men. An increase in testosterone might increase the risk of several cancers, and high amounts of DHEA Supplement have caused cancer in animals. Moreover, a possible link between higher DHEA Supplement levels and risks of prostate cancer in humans has been reported. At least one person with prostate cancer has been reported to have had a worsening of his cancer, despite feeling better, while taking very high amounts (up to 700 mg per day) of DHEA.

While younger women with breast cancer may have low levels of DHEA Supplement, postmenopausal women with breast cancer appear to have high levels of DHEA Supplement, which has researchers concerned. Most, but not all, studies have found that as DHEA Supplement blood levels increase, so does the risk of breast cancer.

Supplementation with high levels of DHEA Supplement (100 mg per day) has adversely affected other indicators of cancer risk in both women and men. Elevated DHEA Supplement levels have been reported to be associated with both higher, and lower risk for ovarian cancer. The reason for this discrepancy is unknown.

The lack of knowledge about how DHEA Supplement supplementation might affect cancer risks provides a reason for caution. Until more is known, people with breast or prostate cancer or a family history of these conditions should avoid supplementing with DHEA.

Although anticancer effects of DHEA Supplement have also been reported, they involve trials using animals that do not process DHEA Supplement the way humans do. Therefore, these positive effects may have no relevance for people.

Some doctors recommend that people taking DHEA Supplement have liver enzymes measured routinely. Anecdotes of DHEA Supplement supplementation (of at least 25 mg per day) leading to heart arrhythmias have appeared.

The relationship between DHEA Supplement, blood pressure, and heart disease is poorly understood. Increased blood levels of DHEAS have been associated with increased blood pressure and other cardiovascular risk factors in some, but not all, studies. One study found that people with hypertension had significantly decreased blood levels of DHEA. Until clinical trials clear up these inconsistencies and confirm its safety, people with hypertension should avoid using DHEA Supplement, except under the close supervision of a doctor.

At only 25 mg per day, DHEA Supplement has lowered HDL cholesterol while increasing insulin-like growth factor (IGF). Decreasing HDL could increase the risk of heart disease. Increasing IGF might increase the risk of breast cancer.
