DHEA works to neutralize the immune-suppressant effects of cortisol, thus improving disease resistance. Cortisol and DHEA levels are inversely proportional. If one is high, the other will be low, so when cortisol levels are very high all the time, DHEA isn’t able to help with immune suppression. DHEA also increases bone density, keeps LDL or “bad” cholesterol levels low, increases vitality and energy, sharpens mental focus, and helps the body recover from the stress and trauma.
