This article is a condensed version of Dr. Zarkov’s summary of medical research into DHEA supplementation. Zarkov’s article
DHEA is a substance produced by the adrenal glands, brain, skin, and other tissues. From it the body makes various hormones,
including testosterone and estradiol. The body’s DHEA production peaks at puberty in women and at about age 20 in men, then
decreases with age.

What we can’t tell you
In the U.S. and some other industrialized countries, government agencies like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have adopted
censorship as a method for intensifying their control over the supplement industry and its customers. Thus, FDA regulations
prohibit us from telling you that any of our products are effective as medical treatments, even if they are, in fact, effective.
Accordingly, we will limit our discussion of DHEA to a brief summary of recent DHEA research, and let you draw your own conclusions
about what medical conditions it may be effective in treating.
