Dehydroepiandrosterone, or DHEA, is a steroid hormone secreted by the adrenal glands. It is a precursor to all of your significant sex hormones: estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone and is the source that fuels the bodyâ€™s metabolic pathway. As a precursor to other hormones, sufficient levels of DHEA are required for your body to produce the hormones it needs on demand.
