DHEA: usage and safety precautions
When it comes to developing a personalized, effective DHEA regimen, regular blood testing is highly recommended both for dosage accuracy and blood level monitoring. Because of the overwhelming evidence connecting low levels of DHEA to age-related factors, Life Extension suggests that most people over age 40 begin DHEA supplementation. The starting supplemental dose of DHEA for most people is 15 to 25 mg a day, though some people will require higher doses to reach youthful levels.
