What is DHEA?
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced by your body’s adrenal glands.
DHEA is used for slowing or reversing aging, improving thinking skills in older people, and slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s disease.
DHEA functions as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. Precursors are substances that are converted by the body into a hormone.
Testosterone and estrogen production also generally declines with age. DHEA supplements can increase the level of these hormones.

There are theories out there that point to reasons why women on average outlive men in almost all cultures across time. One such theory says that men work (manually) harder than women. Another says that women have a stronger support system and wear more hats across the life span so they are better equipped at adapting to loss of partner and asking for help.
