Thus, scientists have been looking at ways of restoring DHEA to youthful levels to prevent or reverse those health issues, and are now discovering mechanisms by which DHEA protects against age-related decline. Since 1981, several thousand studies have been published on DHEA's various benefits, including immunomodulatory properties as well as positive effects on mood, quality of life, and body composition. It has been proposed that restoring the circulating levels of DHEA to those found in young people may improve well-being and sexual function. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, ten months of DHEA replacement therapy showed a beneficial effect of enhancing the increases in muscle mass and strength with the addition of resistance exercise in elderly individuals.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(4)\u003c\/span\u003e The studies of DHEA therapy in women with adrenal insufficiency also suggest beneficial effects on well-being, mood, and sexuality.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(5)\u003c\/span\u003e DHEA could be of benefit to the normal aging brain.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(6-8)\u003c\/span\u003e Some studies have reported DHEA may improve mood and alleviate melancholy.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(9)\u003c\/span\u003e In addition, recent studies have shown that DHEA has the capacity to improve vascular health by a number of complex processes.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(10-12)\u003c\/span\u003e One of them is increasing \u003cstrong\u003enitric oxide\u003c\/strong\u003e synthesis.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(10)\u003c\/span\u003e In a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial, DHEA replacement therapy for one year helped protect hip bone mineral density in older adults and spine bone mineral density in older women.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(13)\u003c\/span\u003e DHEA has also been shown to support a healthy circulatory system and joint\/bone health.\u003cspan class=\"superscript\"\u003e(10-12,14,15)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\u003ch3 class=\"blueHeader2\"\u003eDHEA Usage and Safety Precautions\u003c\/h3\u003e\u003cp\u003eLife 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. The standard blood test to evaluate DHEA status is one that measures DHEA sulfate levels (dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate or 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. Because of the overwhelming evidence connecting low levels of DHEA to problems associated with aging, Life Extension suggests that all people over age 40 begin DHEA therapy. For most people, the starting dose of DHEA is between 15–75 mg, taken in one daily dose. Many studies have used a daily dose of 50 mg. Since almost everyone over age 35–40 has lower than optimal levels of DHEA, most people begin supplementation ... and then \u003cstrong\u003etest\u003c\/strong\u003e their blood DHEA levels later to make sure they are taking the proper dose.
