I think you should only take it if your blood test shows that it is low.

stay away from "new" supplements and drugs. Today's miracle is tomorrow's "oops, causes heart attacks."

Eat a healthy, organic and varied diet, mostly plants. Don't eat mammals. Excersize in moderation. Make sure your emotional needs are met and help meet the needs of the needy. "Giving," Freindship, diet and excersize are the only time prooven, guaranteed ways to maximize health--(along with having tons of $)

DHEA is scary, and is essentially hormone therapy. Just because it is in the health food aisle doesn't mean it is a good idea. Don't take it!

I was taking this bcz I read somewhere along the way that it was good for you, but - then I got Dr. Perricone's books from the library and that was one they said NOT to take. It's in the trash now.

I know Suzanne Somers takes a ton of hormones and she swears that they make her feel better and keep her young.

Taking over the counter hormone therapy does not keep someone young. If that were the case, birth control pills, insulin, hormone replacement therapy, and growth hormone would all be available without a prescription. Check out this site- it has a pretty objective summary of risks and hypothetical benefits:

No, you shouldn't just it, w/o any blood tests first to see if you even are deficient. It can be a potent drug, since it's hormone, and levels can rise above what you need, w/o you even being aware of it. Some people get unwanted side effects also, like increased hair growth on the body.
DHEA can increase different hormones, not just the desirable ones.
I bet Suzanne S. has p.s. and other work, so I wouldn't say her secret is DHEA. I don't even think she looks that young, just ok, but not extraordinarily young for her age.
Just because something is over the counter, doesn't make it safe, be careful.

My bro was interested in it and bought some to take. He said it can be really good for you, but if you have something like cancer, it can speed things up. Stupidly, we both bought some. After all, we don't have cancer, right? Well a year or so later, he gets diagnosed with prostate cancer and had to have his prostate removed and is still having problems. Not that the DHEA had anything to do with it, but I doubt it helped. If you want to mess around with hormones, I would suggest some tests first to see what you may or may not be low on. I've been wanting to do this for awile now myself.
