DHEA is a natural steroid hormone that
is synthesized from cholesterol through pregnenelone by the adrenal
glands. DHEA acts as an antagonist for glucocorticosteroid hormones and
is the parent precursor for other important steroid hormones, such as
estradiol and other estrogens, and testosterone. While not a precursor
to progesterone, DHEA can indirectly influence progesterone synthesis
through a feedback mechanism whereby pregnenelone is converted to
progesterone based on DHEA levels.
Apart from these functions,
DHEA also has important biological functions itself. Recent
experimental and human studies show that DHEA is involved in a large
variety of physiological processes, including immune function, 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.
DHEA and its metabolite DHEA
sulfate are present in human adult plasma in concentrations of
0.01-0.02 ýM and 5 to 7 ýM, respectively. DHEA sulfate levels are low
in early childhood, begin to rise after age 7, peak at age 20-24, and
then drop at a rate of approximately 20% per decade, until at age
85-90, levels are 10-15% of what they used to be at age 20-30. DHEA
levels also decline under a variety of conditions of physiological
stress, such as acute and chronic infections, and trauma. Vegetarians
have been shown to have decreased DHEA levels as well.
