DHEA Plus capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, contain 25 mg each of highest purity dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and pregnenolone.
Recent studies show that DHEA is involved in large variety of physiological processes, including immune system, brain function, bone metabolism, blood lipid metabolism, energy metabolism, the regulation of normal blood sugar and insulin levels, and the maintenance of lean body mass.
Recent studies show that pregnenolone is important for the function of brain, nervous tissue, liver, pancreas, reproductive tissues, pituitary and skin. Pregnenolone is found in higher concentrations in the central nervous system compared to the peripheral tissues which may reflect its importance in brain function.
As with DHEA, pregnenolone production declines with age. It is estimated that pregnenolone production is about 60% less at age 75 than at age 35. Pregnenolone levels may also decline under various conditions of physiological stress, such as acute and chronic infections and trauma. Supplementation of DHEA and pregnenolone together may assist the body’s natural homeostatic balance of these hormones and subsequent metabolism.
