(Dehydroepiandrosterone) and anti-aging DHEA
or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a natural sterone produced
naturally in the body by the adrenal glands and is
the sole precursor and regulator for the natural production
of every steroid and sex hormone in the body. In other
words, without ample amounts of DHEA, the body may
not be able to produce healthy levels of all other
hormones it needs for a healthy life. DHEA is the
most common sterone in human blood, but amounts decline
rapidly with age. Secretions are highest during the
early twenties and begin to decline at around age
25, by the time we reach 70 years of age, DHEA production
is only a small fraction of what it was 50 years earlier."
hormones " ...The hormones DHEA,
melatonin, thyroid, and somatotropin (GH) decline
with age. Women experience menopause, with the loss
of progesterone and estradiol secretion from the ovaries.
Specific areas of the brain show age-related declines
in the levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, acetylcholine,
norepinephrine, GABA and serotonin. ...Daily secretion
from the pituitary gland diminishes with age to the
extent that a 60 year old man secretes 25% of the
hGH secreted by a 20 year old man...This causes less
growth hormone to be released. Melatonin
Melatonin is produced naturally by the pineal gland
in the brain; melatonin decreases with age in some
people. Available without a prescription, melatonin
supplements have been touted as "an anti-aging
rememdy, a sleep remedy, and an antioxidant. Melotonin
is a hormone with powerful antioxidant properties.
It is reportedly an immune booster, cancer fighter,
heart helper mood elevator, and natural sleeping agent.
The organ, which secretes melotonin, is the pineal
gland, the timekeeper of the brain and that that controls
our circadian rhythms...DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone)
is an adrenal hormone that is the precursor for steroid
hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. DHEA declines
precipitously with advancing age in both men and women.
There have been many studies showing that oral DHEA
can improve neurological function, immune function,
stress disorders, and that it can be protective against
some types of cancer and cardiovascular disease...The
claims for hGH are similar those for DHEA--that it
will reduce signs of aging by increasing muscle, decreasing
fat, and giving people a feeling of well-being and
"Sometimes called the superstar of anti-aging
hormones, DHEA is the most plentiful hormone in the
body. Its decline contributes greatly to the aging
process in general and andropause aging in particular.
Replacing DHEA in the past has been somewhat problematic
because it breaks down into testosterone and estrogen
and does so differently in each individual. It can
be dangerous for men if it breaks down into estrogen.
The problem has been resolved with the recent development
of 7-Keto DHEA. It provides the benefits of DHEA but
does not break down into testosterone and estrogen.
We at reNEW MAN are excited about its possibilities."
