DHEA is a natural steroid hormone that is synthesized
from cholesterol through pregnenolone 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 pregnenolone 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 μM and 5 to 7 μM,
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.
