DHEA may be beneficial to:
- Support healthy fat burning and weight
- Reduce menopausal symptoms
- Support healthy testosterone and estrogen levels
- Support healthy cortisol levels
DHEA promotes healthy hormonal balance, supports mood regulation, balances the stress response, and supports bone health.
DHEA, dehydroepiandrosterone, is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. After it is made by the adrenal glands, it travels into cells throughout the body, where it is converted into androgens and estrogens. These hormones regulate fat and mineral metabolism, endocrine and reproductive function, and energy levels. The amount of each hormone to which DHEA converts to depends on an individual's biochemistry, age, and sex.
