Is the DHEA rumor true? Is it an erectile dysfunction cure or just another scam feeding a corrupt multi-billion dollar industry preying on men seeking help? Don’t get frustrated. Get your answer by reading this post now.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a basic ingredient for male hormones. Your body makes DHEA in the adrenal glands and testes (aka balls). Adrenal glands produce hormones that trigger your body to do something. For example, testosterone hormone tells the male body how to perform sexually, physically, and more.
Clinical research confirms a link between men with low DHEA hormone levels and erectile dysfunction. Hence, erectile dysfunction (ED) sufferers tend to have a lower DHEA hormone supply than men without ED. Is DHEA an ED cure? Medical research sought to discover the answer.
While there are many studies that support connecting low DHEA levels in men to ED, this article will focus on the Massachusetts Male Aging Study. It involved randomly selected patients from medical researchers’ own ED clinics. Each man met the following requirements:
For 6-months, medical researchers separated the men into two groups. Group A swallowed a daily 50 mg DHEA pill (control group) and Group B swallowed a pill that did nothing (placebo).
Neither the men nor the medical researchers knew which group took the DHEA pill or the placebo. Additionally, the men answered questions about how the medication made them physically and psychologically feel.
Medical researchers published results concluding:
“Our results suggest that oral DHEA treatment may be of benefit in the treatment of ED. Although our patient data base is too small to do relevant statistical analysis, we believe that our data show a biologically obvious trend that justifies further extended studies.” (Reiter, W.J. et al, 1999)
In other words, hormone supplementation with DHEA treats erectile dysfunction and increases sexual performance.
It is important to take into consideration:
