DHEA (60 caps)
Premier DHEA contains DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) that has been synthesized from wild yam as the starting material. During a proprietary laboratory process, the compound diosgenin is extracted from wild yam (dioscorea) which is then used to synthesize DHEA. The body is unable to metabolize wild yam directly into DHEA. A multi step laboratory process is needed to convert wild yam into the final compound, DHEA.
DHEA is a hormone naturally secreted by the adrenal glands and is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. DHEA travels throughout the body where it is converted into androgens, estrogens and other hormones. Plasma levels of DHEA gradually decline with age. Studies suggest that DHEA provides beneficial support for healthy aging, sense of well being (mood) and hormone levels.
A recent report concluded that DHEA “will improve the quality of life over a longer period and will postpone some of the unpleasant effects of aging, such as fatigue and muscle weakness.” The report also found that those who took DHEA supplements slept better, had more energy, and were better equipped to handle stress compared to non-DHEA users.
