DHEA is a hormone that decreases in
your body as you age. FIGHT BACK!
A host of highly respected scientists are saying that DHEA is the most important
medical advance of the past decade. Studies show that DHEA dramatically reduces
body fat, builds lean muscle mass, fights the ravages of old age and helps
One study at Virginia Commonwealth University tracked a group of men who took
DHEA for 28 days. This scientifically controlled trial showed that these men
DECREASED THEIR BODY FAT BY AN INCREDIBLE 31% WITH NO CHANGES IN BODY WEIGHT
EVEN THOUGH THEY DIDN'T EXERCISE! HEALTH MAGAZINE recently reported how one
study proved that "DHEA increased muscle mass in both men and women and the
men gained strength and lost fat".
Another study published in the prestigious NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE
documented that men with higher levels of DHEA in their system showed a
"forty-eight percent drop in heart disease risk and a thirty-six percent
decrease in death by any cause." TIME magazine touted still another study
that showed elderly people who were given small doses of DHEA daily exhibited
"improved well being...increased mobility, less joint discomfort and
What exactly is Dehydroepiandrosterone? DHEA, the most abundant hormone in the
body, is produced by the adrenal glands and is the precursor of estrogen,
testosterone and many other hormones. While levels of this amazing substance are
high when we are between the ages of 18 to 25, they steadily decline with age.
By the time we reach 75 our bodies make only 10%-20% of the DHEA we made when we
were 21. Much evidence exists to show that our health gets worse as our DHEA
levels go down. As HOLISTIC MEDICINE recently pointed out, "Current
research suggests that DHEA may be of value in preventing and treating
cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, cancer, Alzheimer's
disease, other memory disturbances, immune system disorders including acquired
immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and chronic fatigue."
While the FDA made DHEA a prescription-only item ten years ago, rules and
regulations required the FDA to hold hearings as to why DHEA should not be sold
"over-the counter". The FDA kept postponing these hearings and a new
federal law called the DIETARY SUPPLEMENT AND HEALTH ACT put the burden on the
FDA to prove why DHEA should be scheduled as a controlled substance and to
disprove hundreds of studies that show DHEA poses no threat to the body. Such
hearings would be an expensive and time-consuming process for the FDA and may
never come to pass. Unless the FDA makes a good case for restriction of the
chemical, DHEA is now and will remain a legal, non-prescription substance.
During the time the FDA ban on DHEA was in effect, DHEA precursors derived from
Mexican Wild Yam were (and still are) sold widely in health food stores. Many
companies sell these ineffective precursors to circumvent FDA regulations
against DHEA and label them as if they were pure DHEA. Unsuspecting consumers,
unaware of the difference between the two, buy the precursor of DHEA thinking it
is the real thing. The problem is that these precursors have no pure DHEA in
them. Pure DHEA is currently unavailable in most stores.
But while pure DHEA is difficult to find, it is no longer impossible. GENETIC
EVOLUTIONARY NUTRITION is committed to providing the highest quality cutting
edge supplements on the market. The company is so dedicated to providing pure
DHEA that it will furnish an independent laboratory analysis, upon request, that
confirms the DHEA it sells is pure, pharmaceutical-grade product.
