Are you finding it difficult to build body mass and reduce fat? Are you also over age 35? If so, you likely have a deficiency in DHEA, which means that you are not producing as much testosterone as you did in your 20s.
Testosterone is the key ingredient for building lean muscle mass and strength. DHEA, also called dehydroepiandrosterone, is a hormone that is produced in the adrenal glands of the body. It turns into adrostenedione, which is an anabolic steroid, which ultimately turns into other hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. So, DHEA enhances testosterone levels. In fact, about half of all testosterone is derived this way.
DHEA is vital to the replication of your body cells. Without DHEA, cell damage occurs and this leads to disease. So proper levels of DHEA promote a healthy immune system.
DHEA is also known to minimize body fat which helps improve muscle definition. Research on DHEA is limited and sometimes conflicting, but it appears that the hormone has several benefits. It has been shown to have positive effects on building muscle mass, reducing body fat, lowering blood sugar levels, reducing some cancer risks, lowering cholesterol, reducing memory loss, preventing depression, and reducing blood pressure.
DHEA occurs naturally because the body manufactures it. However, DHEA levels start declining by about age 30, and they keep declining. Substances such as liquor and caffeine can reduce DHEA levels, as can stress. You can’t get DHEA from foods, but you can take supplements containing DHEA. Supplementing DHEA as you age can make up for the lower levels produced by the adrenal gland and help maintain your body strength and muscle mass.
As long as it is not taken in excess, DHEA appears to be safe for most adults since it is produced by the body. It is available without prescription. You should consult with your medical professional whenever adding supplements to your daily regimen. As with all supplements, it is important to choose high quality supplements such as our Tokkyo Recefit-D Stack.
