Benefits of using Pregnenolone

DHEA is a hormone that is produced by the adrenal glands. It is a precursor to testosterone and other hormones, which means that it helps the body to produce these hormones. DHEA levels peak in early adulthood and then decline with age.

This decline is thought to contribute to some of the age-related changes that we see, such as reduced muscle mass and increased body fat. Additionally, visceral body fat is responsible for more than 10 different forms of cancer and decreasing it is essential to long-term health.

Men suffering from testosterone deficiency also tend to have low DHEA levels. And since we want to optimize all hormones, we monitor DHEA levels in our patients and supplement with DHEA if indicated.

What does DHEA do for the body?

DHEA demonstrates a number of beneficial effects:

  • Improves blood flow
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Improves insulin sensitivity
  • Improves cellular immunity
  • Improves body composition (fat loss)
  • Improves bone metabolism
  • Increases libido
  • Increases physical strength
  • Improves cognitive function
  • Enhances memory
  • Is neuroprotective (that is, it protects your central nervous system from degenerative disorders like Dementia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, etc.)
