DHEA 50mg Supports healthy androgen and estrogen levels / 60ct Capsules. DHEA is a steroid hormone produced mainly in the adrenal glands, and in lesser amounts in the testes, ovaries, and brain. Production of DHEA peaks in early adulthood and slowly declines with aging. DHEA serves as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, testosterone, and estrogen. DHEA levels are reported to be low in some individuals with anorexia, kidney disease, Type-2 Diabetes, AIDS, and the critically ill. DHEA levels may also be reduced by several drugs including steroids, and opiate type pain medications. Our DHEA is formulated to a pharmaceutical-grade for highest purity and quality.
