Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone produced naturally in the adrenal gland and is an important component for the production of other hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. Natural DHEA levels peak in early adulthood and decrease gradually with age starting around the age of 30.
Age isn’t the only factor that can lower DHEA levels, however. Stress‚ depression‚ illness‚ obesity‚ and a sedentary lifestyle may negatively affect this important hormone. Reduced levels of DHEA may lead to fatigue‚ joint pain‚ weight gain‚ weakened muscles‚ weaker bones, heart disease, and depression. In effect‚ declining DHEA levels trigger age-related decline.
Along with the physical side-effects of declining DHEA, cognitive functioning – especially the ability to hold on to short-term memories – is believed to be affected as well.
DHEA levels can be raised by getting regular exercise‚ maintaining a healthy weight‚ and getting enough sleep, but sometimes this isn’t enough to affect DHEA levels significantly enough for the desired results. DaVinci Labs’ DHEA Micronized supplement provides 25 mg of the hormone‚ which may help improve cognitive function and alleviate depression, boost the immune system, and improve bone density in older people.
