DHEA

DHEA is called the mother of all hormones.

In public opinion, DHEA is a pill that can:

  • Help us live longer
  • Help us to lose weight
  • Prevent cancer
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Slow down alzheimer’s
  • Combat AIDS
  • Etc…

You should take DHEA under the supervision of a physician.

  • DHEA is the most abundant hormone in your bloodstream
  • It seems to balance the effects of cortisol by improving the body’s ability to cope with stress
  • It also provides the source material for the production of many other hormones including sex hormones

Clinical studies suggest that DHEA can:

  • Boost energy levels
  • Strengthen immune function
  • Improve memory
  • May promote weight loss by Reducing body fat ( especially 7 keto DHEA)

DHEA is the counterbalance to the hormone cortisol.

When DHEA is low, cortisol levels are high, and vice and versa.  Cortisol is often called the stress hormone.  When the two work together in harmony, the body is in a normal state of adaptation to stress.

A good lifestyle personal trainer will recommend to you an integrative physician to check your hormone levels.
