DHEA Tablets 5mg by Ortho Molecular - Gluten Free
Healthy Aging | Hormonal Balance | Mood Regulation | Bone Health | Inflammatory Balance
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is the most prevalent, naturally occurring hormone in the body. DHEA functions as the counterpart to the stress hormone cortisol. Healthy DHEA levels help balance the catabolic effects of cortisol.

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a steroid hormone precursor, which helps maintain healthy hormone levels and helps support the stress response system. DHEA functions as
the counterpart to the stress hormone cortisol. Maintaining healthy DHEA levels is crucial for balancing the catabolic effects of cortisol. Each capsule provides 5 mg of DHEA derived from the wild yam, allowing for incremental oral supplementation and flexibility with numerous hormone balancing and stress-fighting protocols.
DHEA is a steroid hormone secreted primarily by the adrenal glands and, to a lesser extent, by the testes and ovaries. DHEA and its sulfate, DHEAs, are the most abundant steroid hormones in the human body and can be found in blood, saliva, urine and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).  DHEA serves as a “buffer” reservoir to be used for the intracellular synthesis of various estrogens and androgens throughout the human body. DHEA production peaks during the second decade of life. Beginning in the early 30s, DHEA levels typically decline by
10% per decade. In addition to the normal decline associated with aging, other possible causes of a decline in DHEA production include inflammation, blood sugar imbalances, as
well as long-term stress.
Secretion of DHEA is affected by pituitary adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secretion. In addition to being a precursor for sex hormone formation, DHEA also serves as a cortisol
antagonist, providing inflammatory balance and protection to brain tissues from free radical stress. It is especially important in the hippocampus, where excessive cortisol secretion can
affect mood regulation and memory. DHEA has been shown to reverse classic stress-induced physiological responses and support healthy aging. DHEA supplementation is particularly important for those that have been found to be deficient through testing, as well as those that need cortisol to DHEA ratio support.
