What Is DHEA?
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced by your body’s adrenal glands. These are glands just above your kidneys.
Scientists don’t know everything DHEA does. But they do know that it functions as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. Precursors are substances that are converted by the body into a hormone.
DHEA supplements can increase the level of these hormones. That’s why a number of claims have been made about their potential health benefits.
Those claims range from benefits such as:
Building up the adrenal gland
Strengthening the immune system
Slowing natural changes in the body that come with age
Providing more energy
Improving mood and memory
Building up bone and muscle strength
