Alternative Medicine/DHEA


What do you think of DHEA? I am 56 and it gets harder to lose weight and keep up my energy as I get older.
Fortunatley I have no major health issues except being overweight and  hypertension (I am on medication), but that would improve with weight loss.
DHEA seems to be the answer for a lot of issues. Thanks for your opinion!

Hello Bud,

I do not personally suggest DHEA unless their are specific health issues related to needing it or saliva testing shows it is low. It is not an herbal and not a nutrient to be taken lightly.
