DHEA (micronized)

 
Levels of DHEA can decline with age as part of the natural aging process. DHEA is a hormone that is produced in our bodies by the adrenal glands and the levels of this hormone may begin to decline after the age of 30. Supplementing may help replenish what our bodies lose over time, to support healthy aging. DHEA is a precursor to androgens, and along with other adrenal hormones, supports fat, sugar and mineral metabolism, immune response, energy levels, and estrogen and testosterone levels.* Vital Nutrients DHEA is micronized to help increase absorption in the body.*

SUGGESTED USE

 
Use only as directed by your healthcare professional.

DHEA 25mg

SIDE EFFECTS

 
DHEA is SAFE for most people. It can cause some side effects including acne, hair loss, stomach upset, and high blood pressure. Some women can have changes in menstrual cycle, facial hair growth, and rarely a deeper voice after taking DHEA (Dr. Adrian has never seen this).
 
DHEA is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when used in larger amounts and long-term. Do not use DHEA in doses higher than recommended. Using higher doses or long-term use of DHEA can increase the chance of side effects.

 


Special Precautions and WARNINGS
 
  • Pregnancy and breast-feeding: DHEA is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken by mouth during pregnancy or breast-feeding. It can cause higher than normal levels of a male hormone called androgen. This might be harmful to the baby. Don't use DHEA if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Note: DHEA can dramatically increase fertility for infertile women.
  • Hormone-sensitive conditions such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: DHEA is a hormone that can affect how estrogen works in the body. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, don't use DHEA. (Dr. Adrian has never measured an appreciable increase in estrogen from DHEA).
  • Liver problems: DHEA might make liver problems worse. This is likely a myth. A study discussed on PubMed.gov shows DHEA increased liver regeneration dramatically...read more
  • Diabetes: DHEA can affect how insulin works in the body. If you have diabetes, monitor your blood sugar carefully if you are taking DHEA. You will likely need less insulin.

 

  • Depression and mood disorders: There is some concern that patients with a history of depression and bipolar disorder might have some mental side effects if they use DHEA. DHEA can cause mania (excitability and impulsiveness), irritability, and sexual inappropriateness in people with mood disorders. If you have a mood disorder, be sure to discuss DHEA with your healthcare provider before you start taking it. Also, pay attention to any changes in how you feel. DHEA for many improves their mood and libido.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): Taking DHEA might make this condition worse. Don't use DHEA if you have PCOS. This warning is based upon the fact that high DHEA-S is a marker for PCOS. However, PCOS is caused partly by insulin resistance, a condition that DHEA helps.
  • Cholesterol problems: DHEA might lower "good cholesterol" (high lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL). If your HDL level is already too low, discuss DHEA with your healthcare provider before you start taking it. Despite this warning, DHEA has been shown to decrease blocked arteries (atherosclerosis) in animal studies... read more
