Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that DHEA promotes the loss of body fat.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Since it is a precursor to testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) may help build muscle mass. However, it is unusual for anyone under the age of 35 or 40 to have low DHEA levels. As we age, the body’s production of DHEA declines, so people over 40 should ask their doctors to check their DHEA levels. Although it is sold over the counter, it’s best to take DHEA only with a doctor’s supervision.
