DHEA, 25mg Capsules

DHEA is an estrogen and testosterone precursor that is believed to promote a wide range of benefits for both men and women. DHEA supports bone health, libido and general vitality. Though considered an unlicensed and prescription only medication in the UK, it has been widely used and recommended as a fertility supplement for several years by leading fertility clinics- both in the UK and internationally.

Some women, especially women in their 40's or under with a low ovarian reserve in particular may benefit from a low dose of DHEA. Several studies have been done which show it may improve the number and quality of eggs, hence pregnancy rates in this group of women when receiving fertilty treatments. In fact one study from the Centre for Human Reproduction in New York showed a doubling of pregnancy rates.
