DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)
30ml Cream$ 69.99
DHEA (or Dehydroepiandrosterone), is a natural sterone produced by the adrenal gland. DHEA is the most common sterone in human blood, but amounts decline rapidly with age. Secretions are highest during the early twenties and begin to decline at around age 25, by the time we reach 70 years of age, DHEA production is only a small fraction of what it was 50 years earlier. Research has shown a correlation between low DHEA levels and a declining immune system, and DHEA is being used in the fight against HIV, cancer and senile dementia.
The generally-recommended dose is 25 to 50 mg a day for women, and 50 to 75 mg a day for men. Specialists recommend an initial dose of 25 mg per day, together with a blood test after two or three weeks to check the blood DHEA level, as the best way to determine the proper dosage. Men are also advised to check their PSA level, an indicator of prostate disorder.
DHEA should NOT be used by persons who suffer from, or may be suffering prostate or testicular conditions including cancer. Because DHEA can convert to testosterone, and because testosterone can convert to estrogen, we recommend use of an Estrogen Blocker containing DIM and I3C with regular DHEA use. Since DHEA is a natural hormone, there have been no reports of noticeable side effects. Dosages higher than 500 mg per day are not advisable. DHEA use is not recommended for children, pregnant or lactating women, people suffering from benign hypertrophia or carcinoma of the prostate, and women with breast cancer or ovarian carcinoma. With respect to cancer, please note that DHEA does not cause the disease; it can, however, have a magnifying effect. Long-term use of this product should be supervised and monitored by a health care professional.
