More facts about DHEA
Levels of DHEA in the blood are high in early adulthood, decreasing progressively thereafter.6 Studies indicate that maintaining optimal DHEA levels offers a variety of health benefits, including, positive effects on mood and quality of life, maintaining lean muscle mass, and more. Increased circulating levels of DHEA may improve overall well-being and sexual function as well.
Body composition, mood, and more
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 10 months of DHEA supplementation in elderly individuals resulted in increased strength and lean muscle mass from resistance exercise. DHEA regimens offer beneficial effects such as promoting optimal sexual health, improving memory collection and mood, and may also have beneficial effects on the brain.
Cardio, circulatory, and bone health
DHEA has beneficial cardiovascular effects. It also promotes healthy bones. In a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial, one year of DHEA supplementation helped increase bone mineral density in the hips of older adults and spinal bone mineral density in older women.
DHEA: usage and safety precautions
When it comes to developing a personalized, effective DHEA regimen, regular blood testing is highly recommended both for dosage accuracy and blood level monitoring. Because of the overwhelming evidence connecting low levels of DHEA to age-related factors, Life Extension suggests that most people over age 40 begin DHEA supplementation. The starting supplemental dose of DHEA for most people is 15 to 25 mg a day, though some people will require higher doses to reach youthful levels.
