hormones by the body. In animal test it has been shown to reverse aging, restore youthful
vigor, cure cancer, and increase immune response. Many studies have shown that low DHEA levels in humans correlate to increased risk of cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity,
diabetes and premature aging. A positive correlation between DHEA levels and mental acuity in older people has been reported by Baulieu, French endocrinologist and inventor of RU486. "Alzheimer's patients have 48 percent lower DHEA than control group," (Dr. C.R. Merrill, Lab of Biochemical Genetics, Bethesda, MD). The anti-obesity, anti-diabetic and anti-tumor actions of DHEA are thought to be due to its inhibition of the G6PD enzyme. The average blood levels of DHEA in young people are 300 to 500 mcg per deciliter and drops to 30 to 100 mcg per
deciliter with age. The author recommends taking DHEA only under the guidance of a physician experienced in its use.
