Uses based on scientific studies:
ADRENAL INSUFFICIENCY: Several studies show DHEA may improve well-being, quality of life, exercise capacity, sex drive and hormone levels in people with insufficient adrenal gland function. Raising DHEA levels in persons with partial androgen deficiency seems to benefit the age related decline in the mental and physical functions.
The majority of clinical trails investigating the effect of DHEA on Depression, Obesity, Systemic lupus erythematosus and Rheumatoid arthritis support its use for these purposes.
DHEA is under investigation for benefiting bone density, cervical cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, menopausal disorders, HIV/AIDS, sexual function, immune system stimulant and skin aging.
The labels claim DHEA will help us lose weight , rev up our libido, lift depression and give us back the strength, immunity, and stamina we had when we were 20 — the age at which our bodies naturally produced the most DHEA. While on the surface this is appealing (who wouldn’t want to feel 20 again?), it’s obviously not what nature intended. We also don’t know enough about DHEA to be conducting such a large, unregulated public experiment. DHEA is a potent steroid — that’s why it made headlines and why it should be approached with due diligence.
