DHEA is naturally found and made in the human body. it is made mainly by the adrenal cortex, This hormone plays a vital role with the creation of other sex hormones, yet there is evidence that it can do much more than that.
As we age the production will decrease and this may display a cascade of events with the failure to produce other dominate sex hormones.
DHEA has been seen to reduce the signs of aging at the same time improving libido, muscle strength, immune response, body composition, sexual function and most of all improved CNS – central nervous system function.
DHEA is extremely beneficial far beyond what most people are aware of today, especially those in the TRT spectrum. DHEA can reduce cortisol levels at the same time assist with increasing IGF-1 levels and improving the treatment with TRT.
Those that use TRT often hit times where they have a lack of energy, lack of drive or pep in their step. All the while blood-work with test/estro ratios appear on point. Yet, these symptoms are displayed, because DHEA levels may be low.. DHEA may also increase IGF sensitivity along with IGF levels, decrease depression, improve and stabilize mood due to it’s long half-life.
