    DHEA

    **Please note the DHEA supplement contains 270 (25mg) capsules.  This is a 3 month supply!

    DHEA, not to be confused with the omega-3 fatty acid DHA, is a hormone that serves as a precursor to the hormones
    testosterone and estrogen. Research indicates it may also stimulate follicular development. Several studies have shown supplementation with DHEA daily to improve egg quality and pregnancy outcome in women who were poor responders to IVF stimulation medication. Another study suggests that DHEA supplementation may reduce the risk of aneuploidy. DHEA may be helpful when poor egg quality is an issue or in cases of premature ovarian failure or decreased ovarian reserve.  Make sure to consult with your physician before starting DHEA.

    Supplements work best in conjunction with a healthy diet. Consult your physician before beginning any supplement regimen to make sure it is safe and appropriate for you.

    Warnings:  As with any supplementation regimen, ALWAYS consult your physician prior to starting. Women who are pregnant or nursing, or have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome should not take DHEA.
