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 and estrogens. These hormones regulate fat and mineral metabolism, endocrine and reproductive function, and energy levels. The amount of each hormone that DHEA converts to depends on an individualís biochemistry, age, and sex.
DHEA levels peak around age 25 and then decline steadily. DHEA supplementation has been associated with increased emotional well-being and immune function.
As when taking any hormones, Dr. Forrest recommends testing for actual hormone need.
Are you taking too much estrogens, too much progesterone? Is your DHEA hormone in balance? What about your testosterone levels? Are they too high or too low? How are your adrenal glands functioning? Is cortisol in balance? Taking these products is safe. But, in the long run you need to be aware of your hormonal needs and balances in order to gain the best results.
Hormones are important part of good health. They work best when they are in balance with each other. For this reason Dr. Forrest recommends Saliva testing, female and male hormonal testing done right in your home. Saliva testing is an inexpensive, accurate, easy to perform, accurate way to determine almost all your hormonal levels.
You can easily save hundreds of dollars over conventional blood or urine testing. A test kit is sent to your home. You do the test and then mail it off to the lab. It's that simple. When results are received, Dr. Forrest can schedule a consultation with you to review the tests results (consults are charged by time.)
