How DHEA works
DHEA seems to support IGF-1 levels (insulin growth factor) and support decreased levels of cortisol.*
IGF-1 is the hormone, or growth stimulating metabolite, produced by the metabolism of Human Growth Hormone (HGH), and is responsible for the beneficial effects of elevated HGH.
Cortisol is a stress hormone. With aging there is a decline in DHEA and an elevation of cortisol.
High and prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with stress) have been shown to have negative effects such as:
- › Impaired cognitive performance and suppressed thyroid function
- › Blood sugar imbalances
- › Decreased bone density and a decrease in muscle tissue
- › Higher blood pressure and lowered immunity
Elevating DHEA levels is a way to help support healthy cortisol levels and improve IGF-1production.*
