Why DHEA First?
DHEA is the most comprehensive repair signal in the entire body and brain. DHEA is made primarily in the adrenals and the brain. DHEA is the most abundant circulating hormone, initiating or contributing to more than 150 repair functions.
DHEA production peaks during the “prime” of life (age 18 to 30) then starts to decline. At age 70, most people are producing only 10 to 15% of what they made at age 25. DHEA is safe enough that it was made an over-the-counter hormone in 1994 by the FDA.
DHEA supplements usually have a shelf life of two years. An oral dose of DHEA is fully metabolized within eight hours. DHEA supplements come from the Mexican yam plant hormone diosgenin, converted in a laboratory into DHEA.
