Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is the most abundant corticosteroid hormone in the body, and it acts as a substrate for a variety of other hormones. Current research demonstrates that DHEA levels steadily decline with age after approximately age 25, reaching a low at age 80 of only about 5% of that of a 20-year-old. DHEA converts to (or stimulates the production of) estrogen, testosterone, cortisone and many other steroid hormones as needed by the body.
Additionally, some cells have specific DHEA receptor sites. Research suggests that DHEA supports the maintenance of normal adrenal and immune function,bone density, healthy skin, and sexual health.* Karuna's DHEA contains biochemically pure DHEA in amounts suitable for flexible dosing. Karuna does not use wild yam or other sources claiming to contain "natural" DHEA precursors, because studies demonstrate these precursors cannot be activated in the human body.
