What Is It?

DHEA, dehydroepiandrosterone, is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. After it is made by the adrenal glands, it travels into cells throughout the body where it is converted into androgens, estrogens and other hormones. These hormones regulate fat and mineral metabolism, endocrine and reproductive function, and energy levels. The amount of each hormone that DHEA converts to depends on an individual’s biochemistry, age, and sex. DHEA levels peak around age 25 and then decline steadily.*

Uses For DHEA

Immune Function: DHEA supplementation has been shown to support healthy immune cell activity and immune system function in several trials.*

Emotional Well-Being: Several studies suggest that DHEA can enhance an overall sense of well-being. In one randomized placebo-controlled cross-over trial, DHEA supplementation for 6 months supported healthy physical and psychological outlook in men and women between the ages of 40-70 years.*

Lean Body Mass: Some studies involving men and postmenopausal women suggest that DHEA administration may support a healthy ratio of lean muscle to fat mass.*

Sexual Function Support: In a 6-month prospective, double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, DHEA supplementation supported healthy male sexual function.*

What Is The Source?

The compound diosgenin is extracted from wild yam and undergoes a proprietary synthetic process to develop DHEA. The human body cannot metabolize wild yam into DHEA. This process can only take place in a laboratory. Pure Encapsulations DHEA is micronized to increase absorption. It is made with 99.38% pure, pharmaceutical grade DHEA. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Hypoallergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
