What is DHEA?
In order to answer the question “What is DHEA?,” it is important to understand first that DHEA is a hormone that is produced by the adrenal glands. The body utilizes DHEA as the basis for making the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone. When we are young, our bodies tend to make a lot of DHEA and in fact, production of DHEA peaks during childhood and then actually begins to decline as adulthood is reached. By the time we reach the age of 60 years, our bodies are only producing somewhere between 5 to 15 percent of what they did when we were 20 years old.
Because of the decline in DHEA production in our bodies, we tend to have less energy and a lower sex drive. DHEA Creme has been linked to improving the libido and sexual function in older women. It also has been shown to soothe menopausal symptoms and treat erectile dysfunction. In addition, Women who have Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) can benefit from using DHEA Creme as its ingredients have proven to help enhance fertility and regulate ovulation.
There have also been indications that DHEA creams may help to reduce symptoms of lupus and prevent Alzheimer’s disease. In one study conducted, it was noted that DHEA may be helpful in preventing and treating osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, particularly those over the age of 70 years. Some preliminary scientific evidence also suggests that DHEA creams may improve symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Often used to slow or reverse the aging process, DHEA cream is also used to help stimulate the immune system.
Hopefully, this helps you to better understand what is DHEA and how DHEA Creme can help you!
