DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)

DHEA levels decline as we age. Low levels of DHEA relate to or cause high levels of Cortisol. This means when DHEA is lower, one is more likely to have depression, diabetes, inability to cope with stress, sexual deviations, lower testosterone and increase in all aging symptoms.

1. "Health Care.net: "DHEA (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." http://womens-health.health-cares.net/anti-aging-dhea.php

2. "Anti-aging 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 energy..." http://womens-health.health-cares.net/anti-aging-hormones.php

3. "DHEA "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." http://www.renewman.com/HormonesMenTheFacts/DHEA/tabid/798/Default.aspx
