Dehydroepiandrosterone, 3β-hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one, 5-androsten-3β-ol-17-one, DHEA or more appropriately called didehydroepiandrosterone is another kind of hormone that is produced by the adrenal glands, the brain and the gonads that are all present in the body. DHEA is relevant in the production of androgens and estrogens or most popularly known as the male and the female sex hormones. It is also the most abundant hormone inside the human body but its level peaks at around the age of 25 then it goes down progressively as one gets older. When an individual reaches the age of 70 – 80 years old, the DHEA levels on their bodies are 10 or 20% those in their young adulthood.
Since didehydroepiandrosterone hormones are found to decrease with age, many scientists including researchers have wondered if this hormone can work as an anti-aging treatment to older people. Although the low level of DHEA has not been associated with the illnesses that one gets through old age like osteoporosis, memory loss and the like, there are many supplements in the market that contains DHEA but all of them vary in quality. There is still a must in being cautious of everything we put inside our bodies.
Another importance or role of DHEA inside the human body, especially in men is the increase of stamina and testosterone levels. Many tests has shown that men experience increase in fat loss and muscle strength. A place-controlled study also showed that DHEA taken every day in 50mg increased the sexual performance of a man.
In women, particularly on the post-menopausal days of their lives experiences and improved spine bone mineral density while undergoing a DHEA Therapy in University of Colorado Division of Geriatric Medicine. This particular University suggested doing more research on the benefits of DHEA in our bone health since they also found out that women in their 70s had an increase in their hip bone mineral density.
As we age, not only testosterone and estrogen production decreases but along with DHEA which is ironically an essential hormone in producing Testosterone and Estrogen too.
