For patients struggling with symptoms of adrenal fatigue, low sex drive, weight gain, and depression, supplementation with DHEA can increase the quality of your everyday life.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA): Roles and Bodily Regulation
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is considered a building-block precursor hormone that contributes to the body effectively generating estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone in men and women alike. As one of the highest-circulating steroids within the human body produced by cholesterol, DHEA strengthens the adrenals and can serve as an antioxidant within the body. Since DHEA contributes to the body effectively producing essential hormones, it plays a critical role in hormone balance in men and women’s bodies.
As the body begins to age, DHEA’s production capabilities begin to taper off and peak when individuals reach their late 20’s. For many individuals, the lack of DHEA production can contribute to the following symptoms:
- Immense adrenal fatigue.
- Impacted sleep.
- Low sex drive or lack of desire.
- Weight gain, particularly around the abdomen.
- Increased feelings of depression.
- Decreased cognitive performance.
- Increased mortality rate from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
- A lowered immune system.
For qualifying patients eligible to receive DHEA supplementation through our Hormone Optimization program, DHEA supplementation can help increase their quality of life. Additionally, supplementation can decrease or eradicate all DHEA-deficiency related symptoms.
Statistics and Benefits of Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Supplementation
Since there are no food sources that can provide DHEA to assist in regulating the body, DHEA supplementation is critical for aging patients experiencing a negatively-impacted lifestyle. According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, the human body produces half of the amount of DHEA by the time we reach our 40’s than what was once naturally produced in our 20’s, with some elderly individuals producing no traceable DHEA. In one research study, participants who received DHEA supplementation noticed an improvement in their sleeping habits, energy levels, and ability to handle stress compared to a placebo group that did not receive DHEA supplementation. With DHEA supplementation touted as a potential fountain of youth, it is no surprise that studies showcase its purported benefits to the immune system and overall cognitive function. LifeXMD’s medical Hormone Optimization program can determine whether DHEA supplementation is a suitable plan of action based upon your individual needs.
