DHEA

DHEA
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is secreted by the adrenal glands and the brain, and is the most abundant hormone in the body.  DHEA is vital in healthy functioning, as it is a precursor to androgens and estrogens (male and female sex hormones).  As a precursor to other vital sex hormones, DHEA restores libido and improves mood.  DHEA is also important in shifting the body from a catabolic state (breaking down) to an anabolic state, or more simply referred to as a protein building state.  DHEA stimulates the immune system and reduces cardiovascular risk by increasing lipolysis, the breakdown of visceral fat, thereby decreasing body fat and reducing cholesterol.
