DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is a steroid hormone, produced primarily in the adrenal glands, as well as in other parts of the body, including the testicles, ovaries, and brain. After production, the bloodstream carries DHEA to tissues and cells. The body converts DHEA to male and female sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone.
DHEA levels typically peak by the time people are in their 20s and decline with age. The marked decline in serum DHEA with age plays a significant role in age-related changes in tissues influenced by sex hormones. DHEA replacement in elderly women and men who have very low serum DHEAS levels can partially reverse age-related changes in fat mass, fat-free mass, and BMD. (Effects of DHEA replacement on bone mineral density and body composition in elderly women and men.Clin Endocrinol (Oxf). 2000 Nov;53(5):561-8.) †
LuckyLand® DHEA is formulated for people over age 40 who seek protection against age-related decline and want to support overall good health. This supplement is offered in a micronized form, pulverized extremely fine into particles of only a few microns in diameter to increase absorption, following oral administration. †
Because of the potential for side effects and interactions with medications, dietary supplements should be taken only under the supervision of a knowledgeable health care provider. DHEA is not recommended for people under 40 years of age, unless DHEA levels are determined by your doctor to be less than 130 mg/dL in women and less than 180 mg/dL in men. People taking DHEA should have their blood levels monitored every 6 months. Do not use DHEA if you are at risk for or have been diagnosed as having any type of hormonal cancer, such as prostate or breast cancer.
