Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is the most prevalent naturally occurring hormone in the body produced by the adrenal gland. Secreted naturally by the adrenal glands, DHEA is important as a regulating and precursor hormone. DHEA naturally decreases in the body with age. Lower levels of DHEA have been associated with poor health. More recently DHEA has been used for adrenal exhaustion and fatigue.
Dr. Gladd Says
"DHEA is the precursor to estrogen and testosterone. It is often depleted in chronic stress as the body favors the production of cortisol. The lower dose is more appropriate for women."

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is the most prevalent naturally occurring hormone in the body produced by the adrenal glands. After DHEA is secreted by the adrenals, it circulates in the bloodstream as DHEA-sulfate and is converted as needed into other hormones. It is a necessary building block for a wide range of important compounds manufactured in the body.
DHEA supplementation may be needed by those who show signs of adrenal exhaustion and fatigue or those with a DHEA deficiency. As we age, our levels of DHEA decrease, additional supplementation with DHEA may be needed.
