YOUR BODY MAY BE ATTEMPTING TO RAISE MORE THAN YOUR CHOLESTEROL LEVELS

DHEA, or Dehydroepiandrosterone, is a hormone produced by your adrenal glands and is instrumental in the production of sex hormones such as testosterone. Sex hormones are generated through cholesterol production by the body . When there is a call for more testosterone, the liver will produce more cholesterol as the precursor to the hormone. Cholesterol travels to the adrenal glands to mix with DHEA to make testosterone and also to the testes where it undergoes a series of transformations and creates testosterone to be released into the bloodstream. This releationship between cholesterol and testosterone is an indication that high cholesterol levels are indicative of the body attempting to create more testosterone in response to lowered levels of DHEA, testosterone, or both. Lowered levels of either DHEA, or testosterone is referred to as hypogonadism and results in fatigue, erectile dysfunction, muscle loss, increased body fat, and hair loss, hormone replacement therapy and/or prohormone replacement therapy can counteract the effects of hypogonadism to increase energy, prevent muscle and bone loss, improve cholesterol levels, and raise your mood (among other things.)
