Effects of DHEA Supplements

This neurotransmitter is affected by Avipaxin and Daxitrol


There are various supplements in the market available for human consumption. Supplements, as the name implies, adds what is lacking to the human body. Supplements become an alternative source to what the body needs but lacks in production.

The adrenal glands produce the steroid hormone known as Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA).  It is a prohormone needed to convert male and female sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone. The levels of DHEA in the body are at its highest during our youth and declines with aging, thus linking DHEA to the aging process.

DHEA is naturally produced in the body, but DHEA supplements can also be made in a laboratory from a diosgenin, a substance found in soybeans and wild yam. DHEA supplements have many benefits to the human body.


For one, DHEA is used as an anti-aging supplement, since its levels in the body have been found to be linked with aging, thus more DHEA in the body may be equated to slowing down the aging process. There were also clinical tests conducted showing that DHEA may help ease depression. Being a prohormone for sexual hormones, DHEA is also used to reduce symptoms of menopause. This substance is also used to help in osteoporosis because DHEA also help increase bone density.

DHEA supplements have also been proven to lower mortality risk, reduce the occurrence of metabolic syndrome, improve wound and nerve tissue healing, heightened sexual function, reduce lipid levels and increases metabolism nutrients. DHEA supplements have also lead to improved cardiovascular health and possible prevention of atherosclerosis.

More studies need to be conducted to fully understand the effects and benefits of DHEA to situations involving health. In any case, precautions must still be made in before taking this promising supplement. Always check with your doctor first before taking the supplement and always start with a low dose and then increasing gradually.
