Dehydroepiandrosterone: DHEA


DHEA Benefits

  • DHEA is a hormone secreted primarily by the adrenal glands. It results in a shift of a catabolic state to an anabolic or protein building state.
  • It reduces cardiovascular risks by increasing lipolyses (decrease visceral fat).
  • It stimulates the immune system, restores sexual vitality, improves moods, decreases cholesterol and body fat.
  • It improves memory, increases energy, and has anti-cancer properties by enhancing the immune system.
  • DHEA reduces insulin requirement

     activator inhibitor, and tissue plasminogen activator – all decreasing
     platelet aggregation and ischemia.
