DHEA 5 mg (60 capsules)
Pure Encapsulations DHEA is micronized to help increase absorption in the body. DHEA supports healthy regulation of fat and mineral metabolism, as well as endocrine and reproductive function, and energy levels.‡
DHEA, dehydroepiandrosterone, is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. After it is made by the adrenal glands, it travels into cells throughout the body where it is converted into androgens, estrogens and other hormones. These hormones regulate fat and mineral metabolism, endocrine and reproductive function, and energy levels. The amount of each hormone to which DHEA converts to depends on an individual’s biochemistry, age, and sex. DHEA levels peak around age 25 and then decline steadily.*
