DHEA

DHEA is the most common steroid hormone in the body. As with other hormones, our bodies produce progressively less DHEA as we age. DHEA has been proven to have many health benefits, while low levels have been connected to various life-threatening diseases. Depleted DHEA levels can cause . . .

  • Decreased: Energy, bone density and immunity
  • Enhanced likelihood of: Diabetes, depression, heart disease, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis and atherosclerosis
  • Lowered: Mood and memory
  • Increased: Visceral fat and cholesterol

Testosterone 

Testosterone is produced in both men and women. It enhances mental well-being and clarity of thought. However, this hormone decreases with age, leading to depression, fatigue and poor muscle tone or endurance. A lack of testosterone can result in:

  • Increased: Fat, cholesterol, intra media arterial wall thickness, diseases of aging and insulin resistance
  • Lessened: Lean muscle mass, healing and skin tone
  • Vulnerability to: Alzheimer’s disease, depression, osteoporosis, skin atrophy and tendon and joint degeneration

  • Presence of: Weakness, cold hands and feet, thin skin, fragile hair, brittle nails and depression
  • Increased: Fatigue, weight gain, body fat, mental slowness and constipation

Melatonin is an endogenous hormone that works to maintain our natural circadian rhythm, which determines our wake and sleep cycles.  As we age, production of this hormone decreases.  A lack of melatonin often . . .

  • Disrupts: Sleep, immune function, energy and a positive mood
  • Decreases: Natural killer cells
