Ultimate Nutrition DHEA Ingredients
Ultimate Nutrition DHEA includes the following ingredients: Dehydroepiandrosterone 25 mg, Dicalcium phosphate, gelatin, cellulose, and Magnesium Stearate.
Ultimate Nutrition DHEA is a single ingredient formula. DHEA is a hormone naturally manufactured in the adrenal glands. The hormone is known for a wide spectrum of benefits on numerous body functions such as the immune system, mood and well-being concentration capacity, muscle strength, sleep quality, energy level, ability to cope with stress and fat levels, however Ultimate Nutrition DHEA is advertised as extremely important to intense exercise and endurance training.
After DHEA is manufactured in the adrenal glands, it breaks down in the body into testosterone in men and estrogen in women. Although large scale studies on humans have not been conducted to determine its exact benefits, DHEA has been researched in over 1000 individual human and animal trials over the past 40 years.
A study conducted on 9 healthy men with an average age of 63 years old who received 50 mg of DHEA daily in an oral dose over a period of 20 weeks showed significantly enhanced immune function. In another study, participants, women and men aged between 40 and 70 years old, received a 50 mg daily dose for a six month period. The study concluded that more than 60% of the subjects claimed to have experienced increased perceived psychological and physical well-being, as well as improved sleep and mood.
A daily dosage is not clearly defined.
The manufacturer claims Ultimate Nutrition DHEA has no side effects, although reports of acne, hair loss, stomach upset and high blood pressure exist. Some women may even suffer changes in menstrual cycle, facial hair growth and a deeper voice when taking DHEA. The manufacturer recommends taking 1 capsule daily with a meal.
- Positive consumer reviews confirm the formula’s effectiveness in training and athletic performance support;
- Good price (a 3 months’ supply costs roughly $20).
- Potential interactions with drugs that treat conditions related to estrogen and testosterone;
- Daily dosage of DHEA is not clearly established.
Based on the naturally produced hormone DHEA, Ultimate Nutrition DHEA is promoted to ensure support for physical energy (during training in particular), but also to promote general good mood and well-being.
DHEA as a hormone however has many more benefits for the body, including for the immune system and for the quality of sleep. Still, many of its benefits have not been scientifically tested and a clear daily dosage has not been established. Consumer reviews seem to appreciate the formula as being effective and delivering on the benefit promises advertised by the manufacturer.
We may hence summarize and conclude that the product will work at least for some consumers. We recommend you carefully read the label and only after you talk to a professional decide if Ultimate Nutrition DHEA is right for you or not.
