Dehydroepiandrosterone is a vital precursor hormone. While it doesn’t have a significant effect on its own, it becomes really vital when converted into other hormones such as estradiol and testosterone. It is primarily produced from cholesterol, however, it is also produced by the ovaries and testes in small amounts. In women, low levels of dehydroepiandrosterone are associated with reduced bone density, depression, osteoporosis, and low libido. In men, low levels of dehydroepiandrosterone are associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and may also cause a shorter lifespan.
