Hormone supplement that helps ensure optimal health
Due to country restrictions, this item cannot be shipped to Canada.
DHEA is the body's most abundant circulating hormone. Until age 20 years, your blood level of DHEA rises steadily, peaks at about age 25, and remains consistent until about age 30. After that it begins a slow decline … and can go down by as much as 80% by age 70. That ever diminishing hormone level can significantly impact your health, your weight, and your quality of life … so it is wise to supplement.
Maintaining optimal levels of DHEA offers a multitude of health benefits — including supporting immune and circulatory health, mood and well-being, bone and joint health, healthy body weight and lean muscle mass, libido, even insulin sensitivity. The minimum dose of DHEA for most healthy people is 25 mg a day though your optimal dose may be 50-100 mg daily. Regular blood testing is highly recommended both for dosage accuracy and blood level monitoring.

Q: What is DHEA
A: Your body's most abundant circulating hormone … affecting everything from your weight and libido to your circulation and immunity.
Q: How do I know how much DHEA to take?
A: Since most people over age 35-40 have lower than optimal levels of DHEA, most begin supplementation with a minimum dose of 25 mg ... and then test their blood DHEA levels later to make sure they are taking enough.
Q: What effect will DHEA have on my weight?
A: Regular DHEA supplementation has been shown to induce abdominal fat loss of about 10% in women and 7% in men … and about 6% in both in subcutaneous (under the skin) fat loss in studies. It also helped maximize lean tissue mass.
Q: What should I be aware of when supplementing with DHEA?
A: For best results, check your dosage of DHEA with a serum blood test three to six weeks after you start taking it. Always take it in the morning before you eat. And don't take it at all if you are at risk for or have been diagnosed with any type of hormonal cancer, like prostate or breast cancer.
