Coming back to the see-saw of damage and repair that illustrates the Metabolic Model of Aging, it is important to understand that DHEA is the most comprehensive repair signal in the entire body and brain. Made primarily in the adrenals and the brain, DHEA is the most abundant circulating hormone, initiating or contributing to more than 150 repair functions.

DHEA production peaks during the “prime” of life (age 18 to 30) then starts to decline. With each decade of life, the downward curve becomes steeper, until at age 70, most people are producing only 10 to 15% of what they made at age 25. This has catastrophic consequences, most of which can be avoided simply by maintaining youthful levels of this incredible hormone.

Stephen Cherniske is acknowledged as one of the foremost experts on DHEA in the world.  First, a quick timeline:

1996: Stephen writes The DHEA Breakthrough. It becomes an international best-seller in 90 days, translated into three languages, licensed throughout Europe, the UK and Japan. Ultimately printed in five editions, and supported by three coast to coast book tours, DHEA Breakthrough became the definitive guide, and is still regarded as such 23 years later.  

2001: US patent, US 6,326,209 B1 awarded to Stephen and his research team for the use of DHEA metabolites as a measure of biological age.

2002: Development and publication of a metabolic test related to the role of DHEA and aging.  Read Complete Text HERE
