DHEA - The Anti-aging Hormone
DHEA stands for the hormone "Dehydroepian-drosterone", which is made naturally in the adrenal glands. With age the production of DHEA diminishes greatly, and by the time you are in your seventies, your adrenal glands only manufacture around 20% of the amount of DHEA that they did in your twenties.
Thankfully in this day and age we are able to replace the lost DHEA, with the natural hormone that is identical to the DHEA that your adrenal glands use to pump out during your youth.
It is wise to establish each individuals base line level of DHEA, and to continue to monitor DHEA levels as part of a rejuvenation program.DHEA should not be taken by those under 40 years of age, unless recommended by your health care practitioner.
Some anti-aging researchers believe that the relative deficiency of DHEA accelerates the aging process.
LACK OF DHEA CAN RESULT IN:
- More rapid aging
- Chronic fatigue
- Lack of muscle strength and tone
- Loss of libido
