DHEA for Women's Libido and Weight Loss
DHEA - adrenal stress, immunity, longevity and libido hormone - users report more energy, weight loss and improved libido.
Women using DHEA had significantly increased frequency of sexual thoughts, sexual interest, and satisfaction with both the mental and physical aspects of sexuality. A special slow time release 50 mg tablet that releases over approximately an eight hour period to give the proper amounts of DHEA, instead of the usual 25 mg in the first two hours it is like taking several low doses over the same period but ...all you take is one. DHEA is well known and documented to help the body in many ways.
Researchers in Australia in 2004, found a strong relationship between the low scores for desire, arousal and responsiveness and low DHEA levels in women under 45.
DHEA is an anti-aging, weight loss, libido & energy boosting natural hormone in the body secreted by the adrenal gland. As a person gets older, their DHEA levels drop. A 70-year old has only about 20% of the DHEA they had when they were younger.
In a study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, approximately half of a group of seniors took DHEA for 6 months. Those taking DHEA for weight loss, lost an average of 2.2 lbs. per person, primarily in visceral and subcutaneous abdominal fat. Their insulin sensitivity also improved.
Research suggests that DHEA may be of value in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease, high cholestoral, diabetes, obesity, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, immune system disorders and chronic fatigue. DHEA may also enhance the body's immune response to viral and bacterial infections. Perhaps most interesting, DHEA is currently being investigated as an anti-aging hormone...new evidence suggest this hormone is so beneficial for so many different conditions that it may turn out to be the most important medical advance of the last couple decades.
In 1988, studies indicated DHEA protects against viral and bacterial infections including: Enterovirus and other Herpes infections, Lupus, MS, MD, and ALS. It is known that DHEA increases the T-cell and B-cell count. Studies have also shown that DHEA reduces the replication of the AIDS (HIV-1) virus.
�DHEA is the first example of a buffer action for hormones that I know of,� states William Regelson. �It is a broad-acting hormone that only demonstrates itself under a specific set of circumstances. In that way, it is like a buffer against sudden changes in acidity or alkalinity. That is why when you get older, you�re much more vulnerable to the effects of stress.
As DHEA declines with age, you are losing the buffer against the stress-related hormones. It is the buffer action that [helps prevent] us from aging.� The decrease of DHEA with age may result in gradual decline of a system for suppressing enzyme systems responsible for creating the building blocks of new cells, like lipids, nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) and sex steroids.
The resulting rise in enzymatic activity in advanced age may be responsible for the proliferative events (cancer) and degenerative disease that become more frequent in advanced age. In this respect, DHEA might be best considered to be an anti-hormone, which might �de-excite� steroid-sensitive receptors that would otherwise lead to enhanced metabolic activity.
ANTI-AGING AND WEIGHT LOSS: The principal indicators of aging is degenerative diseases, DHEA appears to be the best biomarker of longevity and aging. Diabetics seem to have low levels of DHEA. Dr. Arthur Schwartz, of Temple University Medical School, in the 1980s produced tremendous interest in the possibility of using DHEA as a weight loss therapy. Recent research has shows how DHEA exerts its extraordinary weight loss effects. Other studies in 1992 further show how DHEA blocks certain fat causing enzymes leading to substantial weight loss.
Maintaining a youthful hormonal balance is an essential part of an anti-aging regimen. This includes trying to maintain youthful levels of DHEA. Unless supplemented, DHEA levels decrease dramatically due to the aging process, with harmful consequences such as impaired immune function and more chronic inflammation. DHEA users generally report more energy and an improved state of well-being, as well as greater ability to cope with stress. We urge everyone over the age of 42 to take both DHEA and Melatonin.
The body�s production of DHEA drops from about 30 mg at age 20 to less than 6 mg per day at age 80. According to Dr. William Regelson of the Medical College of Virginia, DHEA is �one of the best biochemical bio-markers for chronologic age.� In some people, DHEA levels decline 95% during their lifetime � the largest decline of an important biochemical yet documented.
In animal studies, DHEA extends rodent lifespans up to 50%. The animals not only lived longer, they looked younger. The graying, course-haired controls could easily be distinguished from the sleek, black-haired, DHEA-treated animals.
DHEA levels are directly related to mortality (the probability of dying) in humans. In a 12-year study of over 240 men aged 50 to 79 years, researchers found that DHEA levels were inversely correlated with mortality, both from heart disease and from all causes. This finding suggests that DHEA level measurements can become a standard diagnostic predictor of disease, mortality and lifespan. Furthermore, if animal results hold true, supplemental DHEA may prevent disease, reduce mortality, and extend lifespan in humans.
CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE: In 1993 a study shows how sick animals had great reductions of athroscelerous using DHEA. DHEA reduced plaque by almost 50%.
LEARNING, MEMORY AND ALZHEIMER'S: Other studies have shown that DHEA is exceedingly low at ages when the incidences of Alzheimer's Disease begins to increase markedly. DHEA may play a significant role in maintaining the function of neuronal cells, and DHEA supplementation may prevent neuronal loss and/or damage, thus slowing the progress of Alzheimer's Disease (Bologna, 1987). Other studies have shown that small concentrations of DHEA can enhance neuronal survival in the brain cells of a mouse. Therefore, the conclusion may be that DHEA compounds might help in the treatment of neurodegenerative memory disorders in man (Roberts, 1987).
DHEA AND DEPRESSION: DHEA, a nonprescription hormonal supplement may be effective in combating midlife depression. "It may have a useful role in the treatment of mild to moderately severe midlife-onset major and minor depression" in some patients, said a report from the National Institute of Mental Health. The findings were based on a small study involving 46 men and women ages 45 to 65 who had major or minor depression of moderate severity. Some were given DHEA and others an inert placebo, and the process was repeated switching the supplement and placebo groups. At the end, the participants were measured with standard tests for depression.
In all, 23 showed a reduction of at least 50% in their depression after they received DHEA. In addition, 13 showed improvement after the placebo. The report was published in the February 2005 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry.
DHEA ENHANCES SEXUALITY AND IMPROVES QUALITY OF LIFEThe hormone Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) has been studied extensively and found to improve various aspects of the quality of life in both men and women. In men and women, e.g., higher levels of DHEA have been associated with enhanced sexuality. With this knowledge, researchers decided to test women who had abnormally low levels of DHEA owing to diagnosed adrenal insufficiency. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 24 such women were given 50 mg of DHEA orally each morning for four months. Then, following a washout period of one month (meaning: no DHEA for one month), the study group and the placebo group were switched to opposite regimens.
The results were dramatic: The women using DHEA had significantly increased frequency of sexual thoughts, sexual interest, and satisfaction with both the mental and physical aspects of sexuality. In addition, the restoration of normal serum levels of DHEA resulted in a significantly improved overall sense of well-being, as indicated by far lower levels of depression and anxiety.
