More About DHEA
Apart from these functions, DHEA also has important biological functions itself.
Recent experimental and human studies show that DHEA is involved in a large variety of physiological processes, including immune function, brain function, bone metabolism, blood lipid metabolism, energy metabolism, the regulation of normal blood sugar and insulin levels, and the maintenance of lean body mass.
DHEA and its metabolite DHEA sulfate are present in human adult plasma in concentrations of 0.01-0.02 µM and 5 to 7 µM, respectively. DHEA sulfate levels are low in early childhood and begin to rise after age 7, peak at age 20-24, and then drop at a rate of approximately 20% per decade, until at age 85-90, levels are 10-15% of what they used to be at age 20-30.
DHEA levels also decline under a variety of conditions of physiological stress, such as acute and chronic infections, and trauma. Vegetarians have been shown to have decreased DHEA levels as well.
DHEA capsules may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to support the body’s normal DHEA functions.
