Dhea (Dehydroepiandrosterone)

An abundant hormone that's synthesised by the body from cholesterol. However, cholesterol levels tend to increase with age, while DHEA levels tend to drop, and this decline signals the onset of age-related diseases.

DHEA deficiencies have been implicated in diseases such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, various cancers and even obesity.

Supplements are available from health food shops.
