DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. Made naturally in the adrenal glands, it's then converted into other hormones like testosterone and estrogens.
These hormones then regulate fat and mineral metabolism, endocrine and reproductive function, and energy levels. The amount of each hormone that DHEA converts to depends on an individual's biochemistry, age, and sex.
DHEA levels peak around age 25 and then decline steadily. In adrenal fatigue, DHEA declines rapidly and stays at low levels until the adrenal glands recover.
Supplementing with DHEA offers the adrenal glands a chance to recover; the idea is that they don't have to work as hard to manufacture DHEA when it's being supplemented.
