DHEA‚ also known as dehydroepiandrosterone‚ is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. After it’s made by the adrenal glands‚ it travels into cells throughout the body where it’s then converted into androgens‚ estrogens and other hormones; these hormones regulate fat and mineral metabolism‚ endocrine and reproductive function‚ and energy levels. The amount of each hormone that DHEA is able to produce depends on an individual’s biochemistry‚ age‚ and gender. DHEA levels peak at around age 25‚ and then begin a steady decline. That’s where Pure Encapsulations’ DHEA 10 mg capsules can help.
