Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, Rh(Ahg), presents Understanding DHEA And 7-Keto DHEA. Dehydroepiandrosterone (Dhea) is an important hormone produced in the adrenal glands and liver, and in men, the testes. Dhea and its sulfate ester, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (Dhea-s), are interconvertible. Dhea-s is the storage form of Dhea. Dhea can then be metabolized to androstenedione, the major human precursor to androgens and estrogens although Dhea doesn’t have direct estrogenic or androgenic activity in most individuals, the production of Dhea normally peaks during the mid-’20s and then begins a steady, progressive decrease of up to 90 percent with aging. Read on for the full story.
