DHEA
DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is a natural metabolite of cholesterol with a wide range of beneficial activities. DHEA is the most dominant hormone in the body, and serves as a precursor to other important hormones such as estrogen and testosterone. DHEA is often referred to as the "Mother Hormone" because our body can convert it upon demand into a host of other necessary health-enhancing hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and corticosterone. DHEA blood levels reach their peak around age 20, then decline in a linear fashion, making it one of the most reliable markers for measuring biological aging. By age 80 DHEA blood levels have declined as much as 95%, signaling the onset of the aging process.

More than just a precursor for the synthesis of other hormones, scientists have also identified specific body cells designed to bind to DHEA. This receptor function indicates that DHEA plays a far more direct role in human health than was previously recognized. There have been over 2,500 published papers documenting DHEA's multiple benefits, but the most recent paper studied the quality of life enhancing effect of this natural hormone: "DHEA will improve the quality of life over a longer period and will postpone some of the unpleasant side effects of aging, such as fatigue and muscle weakness." The report also stated that those patients receiving DHEA supplements slept better, had more energy and were better equipped to handle stress compared to the placebo group not receiving the DHEA.

The potential benefits of DHEA have been known to the scientific community for over 20 years, but this is the first placebo controlled human study conducted that sought to assess the therapeutic benefits of DHEA replacement therapy.
