Questions and Answers

What is DHEA and what does it do?

DHEA, short for dehydroepiandrosterone, is a pro-hormone that is naturally produced by the body primarily in the adrenal glands. DHEA is responsible for the production and regulation of other hormones our bodies make including androgens in men and estrogens in women. Your body’s production of DHEA peaks in your mid-twenties and from mid-life on, production declines, affecting your body’s ability to produce the other important hormones made from DHEA.
