• Promotes Healthy Hormonal Balance

• Balances the Stress Response System by Improving Cortisol-to-DHEA Ratios
• Maintains Healthy Aging and Normal Inflammatory Balance
• Supports Bone Health
Inflammatory Balance: DHEA has been shown to maintain normal inflammatory balance by inhibiting the activation of nuclear factor-kβ and the secretion of inflammatory compounds such as IL-6 and IL-2. Maintaining normal inflammatory balance has been shown to be crucial in patients with gastrointestinal (GI) challenges. In a study involving 20 patients with GI challenges given 200 mg/day of DHEA for 56 days, 12 of 20 patients demonstrated a significant improvement in well-being, specifically related to inflammatory pathways that affect GI health.
Aging: Research has indicated that DHEA naturally supports healthy aging. In a study of 75 healthy subjects, aged 90 to 106 years, a correlation between DHEA levels and well- being was examined. It was found that in elderly men, those with the highest DHEA levels had the highest level of functioning.  An additional study examined 280 healthy individuals ages 60 to 79 years. In this study, it found that oral doses of 50 mg of DHEA per day supported bone health and libido. DHEA supplementation also improved skin health, in the areas of hydration, epidermal thickness and pigmentation, particularly in female participants over 70 years of age.
Hormonal Balance: DHEA is a precursor to estrogen and testosterone. In addition, DHEA may also have physiological actions unrelated to its function as a hormone precursor, as DHEA receptors are also present in human muscle cells. Clinical studies using oral doses of DHEA have demonstrated its ability in maintaining hormonal balance. In a study which included 20 women (ages 50-65 years) receiving 25mg/day for 12 months, DHEA promoted hormonal balance as soon as 3 months of DHEA administration. As indicated by serum concentrations, DHEA helped support healthy levels of testosterone, progesterone, estrone and estradiol.
