Because of the hormonal pathways of DHEA, it is a good idea to work with a health professional when taking DHEA.
- DHEA is mainly produced by the body. We get almost negligible amounts in food. The production of DHEA declines with age. By about 60 we produce only 5-15% of what we produced in our 20’s. There is also growing evidence of DHEA helping to support healthy bone structure, especially in postmenopausal women. There are also preliminary studies showing DHEA helps support healthy sexual function in older women and possibly men (no age group indicated).
- Safety issues: DHEA has been studied in relatively short term intervals. Because it does increase estrogen and testosterone; it could be contraindicated for certain health concerns. Consult your Health Practitioner before using this supplement.
