DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone that your own body’s adrenal glands produce naturally. It is often called the “Master Hormone” because it controls a number of body functions (like metabolizing fat and synthesizing minerals into your system); it also has a particularly crucial influence on sex steroid production in your body. In fact, it’s so potent that biologically, it’s actually classified as a steroid — and you know what that means for strength, explosiveness, and muscle mass. Strong DHEA levels are the body’s way to keep from gaining weight, to feel younger and healthier, and reduce stress… while also contributing to the body’s ability to ward off cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and diabetes… and reducing the uncomfortable symptoms of PMS and menopause in women. That’s why we’ve developed our DHEA supplement — to augment your body’s natural production of this crucial hormone. And we’ve further bolstered its effectiveness by adding Magnesium Stearate to our blend.
According to the US National Institutes of Health, Hormones provide these health benefits:
Growth and development Metabolism — energy to exercise, think, and burn fat
Mood regulation: you simply feel better
And the NIH also informs us that Magnesium provides these health benefits:
Contraction and relaxation of muscles — necessary for exercise
Function of certain enzymes in the body (to keep things running smoothly)
Production and transport of energy… for thinking and for working out
Production of protein (a building block for building muscle)
Sexual health: Chemists and other scientists have launched numerous experiments to determine DHEA’s impact on male sexuality — androgynous activity. At Lehigh University, one study established DHEA’s multiple impacts on the Androgen Receptor — a key protein synthesizer of male sexual capability1.
Multiple health functions: Health care professionals have known for years that Steroid Hormones such as DHEA catalyze numerous body processes, and they’re currently examining effects on obesity, aging, stress/PMS/mood, menopause, and cancer. One such study provided an excellent overview of these multiple processes2.
