DHEA is a hormone that is produced in the body by the adrenal glands. The body uses DHEA to create male and female hormones - estrogen and testosterone. The levels of DHEA in the body normally are at their highest at age 20-25 and then they start to decline with age. DHEA may promote sugar metabolism to energy and possibly helps with coping with stress and improving the quality of sleep.
Some supplements may interact with prescription and (or) over-the-counter medicines.
If you have any concerns, please consult your physician for more information.
