Ultimate Nutrition DHEA
DHEA Is The Most Abundant Hormone In Humans!
For many years DHEA, or dehydroepiandosterone, was considered a "junk" hormone, since researchers could not attribute any specific function to it. In the past few years, DHEA's image problem has been totally refurbished. It is the most abundant hormone in humans and other mammals, and it plays a critical role in many different bodily functions. In fact, decrease in DHEA levels is being increasingly used as an indicator of reduced immune response, and lack of a sense of general wellbeing. Clinical studies over the past ten years show that DHEA may be the most critical single chemical in predicting health.
The body produces DHEA in the adrenal gland using cholesterol as the starting material. Like testosterone (estrogen in women) and other critical hormones, DHEA levels peak in the second or third decade of life, after which the decline begins. In men, roughly one-half of DHEA is lost by age 40. Reduced levels of DHEA mean reduced amounts of hormones, testosterone and other hormone metabolites. It is interesting to note that as cholesterol in general increases with age, DHEA levels decrease.
DHEA directly affects glucose metabolism. High blood glucose inhibits natural growth hormone (GH) and low blood glucose stimulates natural growth hormone. Stimulation of natural growth hormone is beneficial to DHEA, because it suppresses insulin. By the same token, fasting increases both GH and DHEA. Thus, the importance of DHEA in intense exercise and endurance training can hardly be overemphasized. In fact, Dr. William Regelson of Medical College of Virginia in his book The Superhormone Promise calls DHEA "the superstar of hormones" and "one of the most powerful tools" available for enhancing and extending life.
Clinical results show that oral supplementation with DHEA can have numerous beneficial effects including:
- Feelings of energy and wellbeing.
- Improved insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance.
- Support healthy sex drive.
- Enhance mood and increases cognitive ability.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Difference between DHEA and DHEA Sulfate?
The total DHEA in the blood is a combination of free DHEA and DHEA sulfate (DHEA-S), which is a DHEA molecule with a sulfur atom attached to it. Although no distinction is normally made between DHEA and DHEA-S, it should be noted that DHEA-S functions as a ready reservoir of weakly bound DHEA.
Does Oral DHEA Supplementation Work?
Numerous studies, some of which are listed in the references above, have shown that oral DHEA works quite efficiently. Intake of as small an amount as 100 mg DHEA each day can result in remarkable increase in both physical and psychological wellbeing. It helps improve muscle mass and muscle strength is increased. Since it is a powerful hormone, in cases of any clinical conditions, it should be taken under clinical supervision and in consultation with your primary care physician.
When Should One Use DHEA Supplementation?
If the DHEA levels in the bloodstream drop below a certain value --normally, 180 ng/dL in women and 220 ng/dL in men-- DHEA supplementation may become necessary.
As we age, the amount of DHEA produced by the body gradually dissipates. The need for supplementation can be met with DHEA, a superior product from one of the leading innovators of quality nutrition supplements.

Ultimate Nutrition DHEAGreat productOn my second bottle and I can tell a difference in my energy, my libido and more strength. Even after working straight 12 hour days I still have the drive and desire to workout. Will continue usage.
Ultimate Nutrition DHEABack on topA good example where due diligence pays off. I have a high powered and stressful job plus 2 kids under 3. With research and nuermours blood tests I have determined that my body has secreted cortisol (due to stress) which has affected by athletic performance. In addition to that my iron and B12 levels were low and ultimately that means my blood cannot carry sufficient oxygen to my muscles during events. Now that I have fixed that issue, DHEA has provided me with the kick that I have needed in years. I feel strong, my performance is good and I feel confident. On my runs I attack hills, breeze down them and now and then I just put the foot down.. Just because I can.
Ultimate Nutrition DHEATwo weeks on the DHEA time certainly fliesNot being sure on dosages so to start i divided the capsule contents into 4 servings of 25 mg each and most days i consume a serving of 25 mg after my breakfast and another serving of 25 at dinner time, i take them under my tongue with a 25 mg serving of Pregnenolone in the mornings because the piperine in the pregnenolone helps with the absorbtion of the DHEA, i only consume 25 mg Pregnenolone per day, which i began doing so at the same time as i started on the DHEA, And there has been a really big turn around in energy and motivation for me since using these hormones, my thinking is clearer and i have better control over my cancer protocols, i am so glad that in only a short time of two weeks so far i am receiving very real and helpful benefits that make life so much more rewarding, ok thank you and cheers terry, TAB....
