Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a mouthful. DHEA is a precursor to the sex steroids in both males and females. It is made by the adrenal glands. Once DHEA enters the cells, it may be converted to testosterone and estrogens. So treating women with DHEA may help in raising the serum testosterone levels to a youthful range and make the need for testosterone replacement unnecessary. Some of the benefits of DHEA are as follows:
– may enhance the immune system response to help protect against infection, injury, and illness.
– may also be helpful in enhancing energy, increase muscle mass and muscle strength.
– may improve sexual function and decrease depression.
– may be beneficial in treating autoimmune disorders such as Crohn’s, lupus, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis, herpes and Epstein-Barr.
Live your life to the fullest!. Don’t run on low DHEA.
