DHEA is the principal steroid hormone secreted by the adrenal glands. Production of this important hormone declines with age, and research indicates supplementation improves both physical and psychological well-being. Thorne Research provides DHEA in both 5 mg and 15 mg capsules.

Plasma levels of DHEA begin to decline progressively with age starting around age 40, such that plasma levels of DHEA at age 70 are usually about 20 percent of those in young adults. Reports indicate elderly individuals who supplement with 5-25 mg/day DHEA, as an encapsulated powder in two or three divided amounts, often experience improved mood, energy levels, memory, appetite, and skin condition.* Supplementing with DHEA is also associated with supporting cardiovascular health and carbohydrate metabolism, and enhancing weight management, cognitive function, and immune health.*
