What is DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)?
DHEA is a steroid hormone produced from cholesterol by the adrenal glands. It is the most abundant steroid in the bloodstream and is present at even higher levels in brain tissue.
DHEA is a precursor to many steroid sex hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. With age, DHEA production declines (usually peaking between the ages of 25-30) and gradually falling to a decline of 90% by age 60.
Factors that contribute to low DHEA levels include:
- Aging, sugar, nicotine
- Caffeine, alcohol, nutritional imbalance
- Vegetarian diet low in cholesterol and healthy fats
