Of all the body’s hormones, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is found in the greatest amounts. Studies show that DHEA levels drop significantly in men and women after age 35. It is a metabolic precursor to other hormones and is critical to the optimal function of almost every component of the body. DHEA is the crucial natural counter balance to the immune suppressive, catabolic hormone cortisol.  It is recommend that DHEA be taken once daily in the morning to mimic the body’s normal rhythm.
