CAN SUPPLEMENTING DHEA MAKE ME YOUNGER?
No. But taking DHEA may help reduce some of the negative effects of aging and reduce the risks of many diseases of aging. Maintaining good health is much better than trying to regain good health once it is lost.
Humans produce more and more DHEA from birth through puberty into adulthood. DHEA production peaks around age 25, when we are in our reproductive prime. Then after age 25, our natural DHEA levels decrease at a rate of about 2% per year. By age 35, our bodies produce 20% less DHEA than when we were 25; and by age 50, our bodies produce only about half as much DHEA as when we were in our prime.
