Get Deeper Sleep and Feel More Rested with DHEA
For many people after age 30, getting good deep sleep gets harder and harder. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that “more than one-quarter of the U.S. population reports not getting enough sleep, while nearly 10% experience chronic insomnia,” and insufficient sleep is increasingly being shown to contribute to poor health and greater risk of disease. For many people, this can be averted by maintaining healthy DHEA levels.
DHEA, short for dehydroepiandrosterone is the most abundant pro-hormone in the body. Humans produce more and more DHEA from birth into adulthood, but levels peak by about age 25. Then DHEA levels decline at a rate of about 2% per year. So, by age 35 people are making about 20% less than they did when they were “in their prime” or at their best. By age 50, men and women alike are only producing half as much of this crucial prohormone. DHEA is a carbon chain molecule, not something that can be eaten in foods. In fact, oral DHEA supplements that have been available for many years are eliminated by the liver, so it is best for people to use DHEA as a bioidentical DHEA skin cream that is absorbed and processed in the skin if they wish to benefit from this crucial prohormone.
DHEA and Poor Sleep
Researchers have studied the effects of DHEA on sleep, and the researchers found that people with higher levels of DHEA had deeper REM sleep, while people with lower DHEA levels had less REM sleep. REM sleep is the deep sleep during which we dream, and “recharge the batteries.” The medical research studies demonstrated that DHEA can help people get deeper REM sleep, and thereby feel more rested and energized during the day.
While it’s easy to find inexpensive oral DHEA supplements, they are minimally effective. It is crucial that DHEA be used correctly as a properly made bioidentical DHEA cream that is applied on the skin.
