DHEA is produced in the adrenal glands and is a hormonal precursor to testosterone and estrogen.
A Swedish study that followed 2,416 men over five years found that those with a higher serum level of DHEA had the lowest risk
of cardiovascular disease. Men who were lowest in DHEA had a 25% higher risk of cardiovascular events as compared to the others in the study.
Imbalances in DHEA levels have always been associated with adrenal dysfunction and chronic stress states, but this study demonstates it's importance
to cardiovascular health.
