DHEA hormone 10mg micronized per capsule
Pure DHEA hormone that is micronized to a very small particle size to facilitate absorption. A deficiency of DHEA causes: foggy thinking, muscle loss, vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, incontinence, depression, lowered immune system and inflammation!
This hormone is a precursor to testosterone and lack of it will contribute to foggy thinking, muscle loss, vaginal dryness, incontinence, depression. DHEA supplementation is often preferred to testosterone in incidences where both are low due to the additional adrenal benefits of DHEA. (DHEA supplementation raises both DHEAS and Testosterone levels.) In either case DHEA supplementation is warranted for you at this time. A deficiency of DHEA has been found to correlate with immune dysfunction, inflammation, greater risk of certain cancers, heart disease in men, and osteoporosis.
Supplemental DHEA actually helps you age gracefully on a cellular level, affecting the expression of some genes which are switched off as we age. DHEA has been found to help increase estrogen levels, increase bone mineral density; DHEA also increases the activity of platelet superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of our most important antioxidant enzymes. Thus, DHEA seems to play an essential role as part of the body’s antioxidant defenses. DHEA has also been shown to lower hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar). Adequate levels of DHEA can increase testosterone levels, restore muscle mass, improve the body fat ratio, improve memory, and boost the immune system. It is useful in combating auto-immune disorders, obesity, senile dementia, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and depression. DHEA promotes flexibility in the body and raises endurance levels.
DHEA is the hormone that helps you reach and keep you ideal weight. It is the basis of the hormone that tells the brain when you have had enough to eat, and inhibits the conversion of glucose to fat. When the body is low on DHEA fat piles on quickly whenever carbohydrates are eaten since there is nothing to inhibit the conversion of glucose to fat.
DHEA protects against arteriosclerosis by lowering cholesterol and insulin levels. This mechanism keeps you safe from diabetes if you eat a healthy diet. It is another hormone that keeps the immune system strong, preventing cancer. It protects the brain from Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s by protecting neurons.
