DHEA is your body's most abundant circulating hormone.1 Supplementing for healthy DHEA levels can help support immune function, circulatory health, mood and well-being, healthy body weight and lean muscle mass, libido and more.2-6

Benefits at a Glance

  • Promotes healthy thermogenesis
  • Helps promote a healthy body weight & lean muscle mass
  • Maintains youthful DHEA hormone balance
  • Supports healthy mood, libido, well-being & more
  • Contains extracts that help inhibit oxidative stress at the cellular level

DHEA Complete delivers both regular DHEA (25 mg) and 7-Keto® DHEA (100 mg), plus resveratrol and antioxidant extracts from curcumin, green tea and whole red grapes. 7-Keto® DHEA has been shown to promote cells’ efficient use of stored energy sources and encourage healthy body composition.7

Body composition, mood and more

In a small randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 10 months of DHEA replacement therapy with 50 mg per day showed enhanced increases in fat-free mass in 18 elderly individuals.5 Other studies of DHEA regimens in women suggest beneficial effects on well-being and mood and sexuality.4,6 Studies also show DHEA may alleviate melancholy and may also benefit the aging brain.8-9

Cardio, circulatory and structural health

DHEA has the capacity to improve vascular health by a number of complex processes.3 One of them is increasing nitric oxide synthesis. DHEA has also been shown to support a healthy circulatory system and joint/bone health. In a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial, one year of DHEA supplementation (50 mg per day) helped protect lumbar spine bone mineral density in 225 healthy older women.10

Free radical-fighting plant extracts

This formula also contains plant extracts known to protect against oxidative stress extracts because of the effect 7-Keto® has in boosting mitochondrial oxidation. This includes extracts from green tea, resveratrol, and our proprietary Curcumin Elite™ turmeric extract. Curcumin Elite™ has high amounts of free curcuminoids, the active compound in curcumin that gives it its health benefits—including the ability to quench free radicals and fight back against oxidative stress at the cellular level.

DHEA: usage and safety precautions

When it comes to developing a personalized, effective DHEA regimen, regular blood testing is highly recommended both for dosage accuracy and blood level monitoring. Because of the overwhelming evidence connecting low levels of DHEA to age-related factors, Life Extension suggests that most people over age 40 begin DHEA supplementation. The starting supplemental dose of DHEA for most people is 15 to 25 mg a day, though some people will require higher doses to reach youthful levels.

This product contains 25 mg of DHEA per capsule.

This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Results may vary.
