Risks of DHEA Supplements

Risks of DHEA Supplements

This neurotransmitter is affected by Avipaxin and Daxitrol

 In life, everything you do involves risks. Whether it may be crossing the road, entering a business deal, saying yes to a lifetime commitment or even as simple as taking supplements for the body involves risks for there is always that grey area of the unknown and what the effects of these unknown things may bring.

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. It also has the effect of increasing bone density and increasing libido, thus linking DHEA to the signs of aging and the aging process itself.

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. It has been proven to help in cases such as aging, menopause, cancer, decreasing libido and bone mass among with many others. And with these benefits, it is expected that there would be a lot of people who would want to avail of these benefits, but the lack of thorough research regarding the ling term effects of DHEA in the body poses risks.

According to studies, DHEA may cause higher than normal levels of androgens and estrogen and consequently increase the likelihood occurrence of prostate, breast, ovarian, and other hormone-sensitive cancers. And due to these findings, it is cautioned that patients who have a strong family history of cancer and those who have cancer should avoid using the supplement until further studies have been conducted about the effects of DHEA in relation to cancer bearing patients.

There is still a wide blank space to be filled regarding DHEA, and users must understand the risks involved in using this supplement. Guidance from doctors and medical practitioners is still advised in using this supplement along with other medications.
