DHEA Plus capsules from Douglas Laboratories, contain 25mg each of highest purity dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and pregnenolone. Both are produced under strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards.
DHEA is involved in a large variety of physiological processes, including immune function, brain function, bone metabolism, blood lipid metabolism, energy metabolism, the regulation of normal blood glucose and insulin levels, and the maintenance of lean body mass.*
DHEA is a natural steroid hormone that is synthesized from cholesterol through pregnenolone by the adrenal glands. Pregnenolone is also a natural steroid hormone produced in the body from cholesterol. Pregnenolone has been linked with positive support of the immune system, mood and memory*.
Produced by the adrenal glands in the body, pregnenolone is a direct precursor of both DHEA and progesterone. Pregnenolone is the building block for all other steroid hormones. It may also provide supportive anti-stress benefits.*
As with DHEA, pregnenolone production declines with age. Levels may also decline under a variety of conditions of physiological stress, such as acute and chronic infections, and trauma. Vegetarians may have decreased DHEA levels as well*.
Supplementation of DHEA and pregnenolone together may assist the bodys natural homeostatic balance of these hormones and subsequent metabolism.*
