DHEA 10mg Capsules 100ct

Manufacturer Douglas Laboratories
Price $14.00

Product Description


DHEA capsules, provided by Douglas

Laboratories, contain highest purity micronized

dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) produced under

strict Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)



DHEA is a natural steroid hormone that is

synthesized from cholesterol through pregnenelone

by the adrenal glands. DHEA acts as an antagonist

for glucocorticosteroid hormones and is the parent

precursor for other important steroid hormones,

such as estradiol and other estrogens, and

testosterone. While not a precursor to

progesterone, DHEA can indirectly influence

progesterone synthesis through a feedback

mechanism whereby pregnenelone is converted to

progesterone based on DHEA levels.

Apart from these functions, DHEA also has

important biological functions itself. Recent

experimental and human studies show that DHEA

is involved in a large variety of physiological

processes, including immune function, brain

function, bone metabolism, blood lipid

metabolism, energy metabolism, the regulation of

normal blood sugar and insulin levels, and the

maintenance of lean body mass.

DHEA and its metabolite DHEA sulfate are

present in human adult plasma in concentrations of


μM and 5 to 7 μM, respectively. DHEA


sulfate levels are low in early childhood, begin to

rise after age 7, peak at age 20-24, and then drop at

a rate of approximately 20% per decade, until at

age 85-90, levels are 10-15% of what they used to

be at age 20-30. DHEA levels also decline under a

variety of conditions of physiological stress, such

as acute and chronic infections, and trauma.




DHEA capsules may be a useful nutritional

adjunct for individuals who wish to support the
