Premier DHEA offers superior adrenal and endocrine support.
- Natural source, USP-grade DHEA, derived from wild yam (solvent-free).
- Supports the adrenals, reproductive glands, libido, sense of well being and healthy management of stress.
- DHEA is a natural hormone secreted by the adrenal glands, is being touted as the fabled “fountain of youth.” Over 2,500 published research papers document the healthful benefits of DHEA. A recent report concluded that DHEA “will improve the quality of life over a longer period and will postpone some of the unpleasant effects of aging, such as fatigue and muscle weakness.” The report also found that those who took DHEA supplements slept better, had more energy, and were better equipped to handle stress compared to non-DHEA users.
Linked To Youthful Resilience
DHEA is one of the body’s key hormones which helps to intercoordinate the complex endocrine system. DHEA appears to be linked to the healthful resilience of youth. By age 21, the adrenal glands produce abundant levels of DHEA: these levels peak around age 25 to 28. By age 40, DHEA levels are half of what they were at age 21. DHEA levels continue to decline steadily; by age 70, DHEA levels are 10% to 15% of the peak levels. Elderly people sometimes have virtually no DHEA. Extremely low DHEA levels are commonly seen in those with chronic disease regardless of age.
Premier DHEA contains DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) that has been synthesized from wild yam as the starting material. During a proprietary laboratory process, the compound diosgenin is extracted from wild yam (dioscorea) which is then used to synthesize DHEA. The body is unable to metabolize wild yam directly into DHEA. A multi step laboratory process is needed to convert wild yam into the final compound, DHEA.
DHEA is a hormone naturally secreted by the adrenal glands and is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. DHEA travels throughout the body where it is converted into androgens, estrogens and other hormones. Plasma levels of DHEA gradually decline with age. Studies suggest that DHEA provides beneficial support for healthy aging, sense of well being (mood) and hormone levels.
