Get healthy quick scams and products are as abundant as ever these days. Every commercial or ad shows some type of pill or supplement that claims to help where you need it to. While most of these are just big talk, one product is a game changer for millions of people. I am talking about Dehydroepiandrosterone or DHEA. DHEA is produced by the adrenal glands most abundantly and also by the testes, ovaries and the brain in a lesser extent. It has been recognized as the most available steroid in the blood stream. Some researchers have called it one of the “master” hormones because DHEA is responsible for proper production levels of estrogen and testosterone.
Unfortunately as with many hormones in our body as we age DHEA levels decline causing a host of health issues. When levels are at their prime in our 20’s things are usually good. As time goes by DHEA levels drop about 2% per year. After age 40 the side effects of having low levels of DHEA are prominent. Some of the tell tale signs that you have low DHEA levels are very common and some times overlooked as other things. Symptoms include anxiety, decreased libido for men and women, worsening memory, dry skin and hair and bone weakness. Other things such as excess sugar, nicotine, alcohol and caffeine contribute to low levels of DHEA as well.
Thankfully this doesn’t have to be a problem you have to live with. Supplementing your body with DHEA products can reverse many of the bad effects of low DHEA. The best way to utilize a DHEA product is the transdermal method. Since oral DHEA is destroyed by the stomach and liver, transdermal skin patches are the best alternative. This delivery method gets the “good stuff “ right into the bloodstream where it can immediately go to work. Within weeks more energy and focus can be felt and cortisol levels are decreased. This results in lower body fat and improved muscle tone. Research has also shown that those people with Alzheimer’s have low levels of DHEA. If you are looking for a little help to reduce fatigue and anxiety while boosting focus then look into DHEA. This could be the life changer you never knew you needed.
