Unlocking Vitality: The Power of DHEA for Women

DHEA is a precursor hormone, meaning that the body can convert it into other hormones, including estrogen. It can be converted into both estrone and estradiol, which are the more potent forms of estrogen, primarily by tissues like fat cells and the liver. Research suggests that DHEA supplementation may increase levels of estrone and estradiol, which can have various effects on the body, including potentially alleviating symptoms of menopause, improving bone density, and enhancing libido. However, the specific effects of DHEA supplementation can vary depending on individual factors such as age, gender, and health status.

Estrogen may also help with vaginal dryness‚ÄĒas the skin cells are rejuvenated, there is:
  • Less itching.
  • Less tearing.
  • Less pain.
The mucous membranes have a better ability to both retain moisture.

During menopause, estrogen levels decline, leading to various symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Again, DHEA supplementation in menopausal women provides help by alleviating these symptoms.

It's important to note that DHEA supplementation can have side effects and may not be suitable for everyone. Before considering DHEA supplementation, it's crucial to consult with one of our providers who can provide personalized advice based on your medical history and hormone levels. They can help determine whether DHEA supplementation is appropriate for you and monitor your hormone levels and overall health while you're taking it.
