Don't we create DHEA in our bodies ourselves?

What is DHEA?

Dihydroxyepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a naturally-occurring substance in the body's bloodstream and brain cells. As with many other naturally-produced substances, as we age, this substance diminishes in our bodies. Studies indicate that adequate DHEA levels are capable of slowing the body's aging process, which is why it is such an interesting anti-aging supplement.

As with any supplements, there are certain limitations to who should take DHEA. Before you begin any supplement program, you should check with your doctor and advise he or she of any other medications and supplements you might be taking.
