Dehydroepiandrosterone is a hormone. In the animal body, it is mostly produced by the adrenal glands (small glands that sit aloft the kidneys). Researchers are not absolutely abiding what dehydroepiandrosterone itself does, although it is accepted that the physique transforms it into added steroid hormones, such as testosterone and estrogen. It is difficult to adumbrate to what admeasurement the physique will catechumen dehydroepiandrosterone into testosterone or estrogen in any accurate individual. Some humans will catechumen dehydroepiandrosterone mostly into testosterone, while others will mostly catechumen it into estrogen.
