Benefits of DHEA Supplementation

Most people experience their highest blood levels of DHEA at approximately 25 years of age. These levels tend to decrease steadily thereafter, declining as much as 80% in some people of advanced age. Many health experts contend that the maintenance of healthy, youthful DHEA levels has a variety of health benefits. As such, thousands of scientific studies have been published on DHEA’s various benefits, including its immunomodulatory properties and support of vascular health, nitric oxide synthesis, and healthy blood flow.1

These blood flow support properties are the reason why DHEA is thought to be supportive of healthy sexual activity and libido. Many recipients also report sharp increases of energy and focus levels upon consumption. While capsules are considered highly effective, Life Extension DHEA dissolvable tablets absorb directly through the porous tissues of the mouth for more immediate absorption so that the energizing effects set in immediately.

DHEA Usage and Safety Precautions

Life Extension has been investigating DHEA for almost 30 years. Life Extension’s DHEA directions for use are specially drafted to provide optimal, but safe dosing.

A standard blood test to evaluate DHEA status is one that measures DHEA sulfate levels (DHEA-S). The DHEA-S is calculated in micrograms per deciliter (µg/dL) of blood. A DHEA-S blood test may be taken three to six weeks after initiating a DHEA supplementation regimen to help determine optimal dosing. DHEA testing may save you money if it shows you can take less DHEA to maintain youthful DHEA serum levels.

Since almost everyone over age 35–40 has lower than optimal levels of DHEA, most people begin supplementation and then test their blood DHEA levels later to make sure they are taking the proper dose. Normal serum reference ranges and ideal ranges of DHEA-S are:

 Normal
(depending on age)
Ideal
Men16.2-492 µg/dL350-490 µg/dL
Women12-407 µg/dL275-400 µg/dL

People over age 40 who do not supplement with DHEA usually have serum levels below 200 µg/dL, and many are below 100 µg/dL since a steady decline takes place after the third decade in life.1,16

There are different precautions for men and women that should be observed.

DHEA Precautions for Men

Before attempting to restore DHEA to youthful levels, men should know their serum PSA (prostate specific antigen) level. Men with prostate cancer or severe benign prostate disease are advised to avoid DHEA since it can be converted into testosterone (and estrogen). Therefore, men are advised to have a PSA and digital rectal exam before initiating DHEA to rule out existing prostate disease.

When taking DHEA we also recommend taking the following other nutrients daily:

Vitamin D5,000 – 10,000 IU

Vitamin E
(D-alpha tocopheryl succinate)

400 IU

Selenium200 mcg

Gamma E Tocopherol
with Sesame Lignans

200 mg

Lycopene Extract

10 – 40 mg

Boron

3 – 10 mg

Cruciferous Vegetable Extracts
(as found in Triple Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract)
500 – 1000 mg

It is important for men over 40 to have a physician check their PSA and DHEA-S serum levels every six to twelve months thereafter. Men should also periodically check their blood levels for free testosterone and estrogen to make sure that DHEA is following a youthful metabolic pathway.

DHEA Precautions for Women

Women should consider estrogen and testosterone testing when they take their DHEA blood test in order to evaluate DHEA’s effect on their blood levels of these hormones.

Women who have been diagnosed with an estrogen-dependent cancer should consult their physicians before beginning the DHEA restoration process.

When taking DHEA we also recommend taking the following other nutrients to maintain a healthy balance each day:

Melatonin 300 mcg – 3 mg (nightly)

Vitamin E
(D-alpha tocopheryl succinate)

400 IU

Broccoli Extract
(as found in Triple Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract)
400 mg

Indole-3-carbinol
(as found in Triple Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract)

80 – 160 mg

Vitamin D3

5,000 – 10,000 IU

Gamma Tocopherol
