DHEA Dehydroepiandrosterone
DHEA Dehydroepiandrosterone

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a key compound that stimulates the production of sex hormones – testosterone and estrogen. It helps to maintain emotional balance and mitigates the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Thanks to anabolic properties, DHEA supports functioning of the muscles. The right amount of this compound is crucial for a good mood and the efficiency of cognitive functions.

DHEA | Dehydroepiandrosterone

Properties: DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a hormone that occurs in the human body naturally. It’s a precursor of sex steroid hormones (androgens and estrogens) and it can be converted into those hormones if necessary. As the DHEA level unavoidably decreases with age, the levels of steroids also fall down. DHEA supplementation helps to maintain hormonal balance in a natural way. It counteracts both the negative effects of menopause in women and decreased libido in men. As the DHEA concentration decreases with age, lowered mood occurs more frequently. When DHEA is externally supplied, it provides better emotional stability and helps to look at the bright side of life. Additionally, DHEA can improve the physical training effects. Not only does it increase stamina, but it also improves the fat burning process, boosts muscle gain and helps the muscles to regenerate. What is more, it improves the process of bone mineralization making the bones more durable and harder.

DHEA is commonly used as an ingredient of anti-aging cosmetics. It is good for moisturizing the skin and prevents it from drying out. Sebum production decreases as we age, due to the sebaceous glands’ lower efficiency. By helping to moisturize the skin, DHEA enhances its firmness and flexibility while reducing the wrinkles. DHEA has an anti-aging effect on skin and makes it look more healthy and younger.

Occurrence: DHEA is produced in the human body. To be more specific, it is made from cholesterol in the adrenal glands. Ovaries and testicles also synthesize this hormone but on a smaller scale.

Biochemistry: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA, androstenolone, prasterone) is a natural sex steroid hormone belonging to androgens. In the human body DHEA is produced from cholesterol, mainly by the adrenal cortex.  DHEA is one of the most common steroids present in the human body. Depending on the organism needs, it can be converted to androgens (male hormones): testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) or estrogens (female hormones), like estradiol. After oral administration, DHEA is metabolized to its sulphated form – DHEA-S. This compound can be reconverted to DHEA. Prasterone easily crosses the blood-brain barrier. Additionally, it can act as a neurotransmitter and affects levels of other important compounds, e.g. serotonin.

Fun fact: DHEA level changes with age. In children DHEA concentration is considerably low and then increases just before puberty to reach its maximum in early adolescence (between the ages of 20 and 30). The gradual decrease in DHEA level occurs as we get older. This, in turn, leads to the reduction of sex hormones concentration.

How does DHEA | Dehydroepiandrosterone work?

Regulates hormonal balance: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a precursor of sex steroids: testosterone and estrogens. Noticeable decline in DHEA level occurs around the age of 40 which is related to the stage of menopause in women and decreased libido in men. The results of clinical trials revealed that DHEA supplementation helps to normalize hormonal balance in both sexes improving general well-being while significantly reducing meno- and andropause symptoms.

Improves physical capacity: DHEA can effectively support the body during physical activity by influencing processes that regulate proper muscle functioning. Scientific studies indicate that DHEA acts as an anabolic – it stimulates the fat burning process and helps to gain muscle mass, especially when combined with physical activity. What is more, it facilitates regeneration of muscle tissue after workout and intensifies mineralization of bones, improving their durability. Additionally, DHEA improves sensitivity of cells to insulin by enhancing glucose uptake from the circulating blood. As a result, the metabolic rate is increased and the muscles can be provided with more energy.

Improves memory and concentration: The results of clinical trials indicate that DHEA supplementation might have a beneficial influence on cognitive abilities, such as: concentration, working memory and executive functions that include planning, abstract thinking and emotional control. Some researchers link a lowered level of this hormone with a deterioration of cognitive functions. Therefore, it is estimated that DHEA generally brings more benefits to middle-aged people who don’t produce as much prasterone as younger adults.

Enhances mood: It has been established that lowered levels of DHEA might be related to a decline in general mood and well-being. The clinical trials have revealed that DHEA supplementation might counteract those unfavourable changes. It’s possible that this effect is associated with the ability of DHEA to increase blood level of β-endorphins – the strongest natural opioid peptides that modulate pain and induce a sense of happiness with general well-being. In addition to that, research shows that DHEA might reduce the activity of brain regions that are involved in generating difficult emotions and that are particularly active in mood disorders. For these reasons, prasterone might be a valuable support for emotional balance.
