Dehydroepiandrosterone or DHEA for short is a hormone which is naturally produced in the body. Its most common use is in the production of other hormones such as estrogen and testosterone. DHEA hormone levels peak in early adulthood and gradually reduce with aging. People might use DHEA supplementation to combat the aging process, build muscle, improve sex drive and boost physical performance. It could also enhance ovarian reserve in females, support estrogen production and improve egg quality. DHEA has proven to support overall hormonal balance in both men and women.
