In age 20s, DHEA levels slowly start to fall. Some people believe that, low DHEA levels may decrease bone density, or cause cognitive impairment. Therefore they believe that, using DHEA supplements should be able to slow the aging process.
As an anti-aging therapy, some people use DHEA supplements, in order to prevent chronic illness or remain energetic. But this supplement can sometimes cause side effects. Some studies show that, DHEA supplements might improve hipbone mineral density, but other research does not support this theory.
Since DHEA supplements may have unexpected side effects, you should be cautious and consult your doctor.
