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.
Many people suffer from hypothyroidism, a condition in which the body doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone. Left untreated, hypothyroidism can lead to numerous health concerns, including obesity, joint pain, heart disease, neurological deficits, fatigue, and infertility. Appropriate and accurate thyroid function tests can easily help diagnosis thyroid problems. Because TSH levels can appear normal in hypothyroidism, T3 and T4 levels need to be tested in order to accurately determine thyroid function. Natural thyroid replacement hormone provides the body with a combination of both T3 and T4; whereas, synthetic thyroid replacement hormone only provides the body with the inactive T4 form which still has to be converted in the body to the active T3 form.
