Hello Everyone,

It seems that one recurring theme you see constantly coming up everywhere you look is the desire to lose weight and specifically body fat. Obviously, there are more diet books than practically any other category and it continues to expand almost daily.

After studying the issue for many years I have absolutely no doubt that the biggest issue to be addressed is that of elevating body-positive hormones while lowering those that have a negative impact.

Let me give you a clear example of what I am talking about. I have a friend that had been experiencing a deep sense of depression for the past several years. Granted he was 43 years old when he began to experience his symptoms that were getting progressively worse and also included insomnia. His doctor put him on anti-depressants and his sex drive became nonexistent as he began gaining excess fat around his abdomen. His self-image took a nosedive and it caused major problems between him and his wife. He contacted me and I told him to go a friend of mine (a medical doctor) for a check-up and have his Testosterone levels checked.

Long story short. He stopped all anti-depressants and is now taking several natural testosterone and HGH boosters. The one that seems to have by far the best and most noticeable benefit has been DHEA. Not only are his testosterone levels back in the normal range but he has also regained a lot of his muscle mass and lost a great deal of body fat while simultaneously improving his state of mind.

The one that he is taking is from Natrol and he is currently taking two 50mg tablets daily. Some of you may be fighting a similar battle and if you are it would be well worth having your doctor check testosterone and HGH levels as well as DHEA.

DHEA is the most abundant androgenic hormone in the human body, and it’s the base for about ninety percent of the testosterone men create and seventy-five percent of the estrogen women make. Your adrenal glands secrete DHEA into your system, where it’s converted into testosterone and other useful hormones. As the human body ages, the production of this hormone diminishes, from about 30 mg at the age of twenty to about 6 mg at the age of eighty, the biggest decline of any biochemical in the human body. This has led to speculation that it can be used as an antiaging supplement. Frankly, it makes perfect sense to me.

This is especially true when one considers that in addition to boosting your body’s own natural testosterone production, it is also linked to enhanced bone health, improved insulin balance, improved sense of well-being, fat loss, enhanced sex drive, and even healthier connective tissues. This, in turn, makes it possible for you to train daily with the Transformetrics Strength Training System in order to create the youthful muscle mass you need to stay young, strong, athletic, and virile for life.

What’s more, recent scientific research has pinpointed low DHEA levels as a primary marker for many degenerative diseases and accelerated aging. In fact, low DHEA levels have been implicated as a contributing factor in a host of health problems, including Alzheimer’s disease, autoimmune disease, and other immunological disorders such as cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, memory problems, obesity, osteoporosis, and stress disorders. Bottom line, realizing what the benefits include, isn’t it obvious why I am so gung ho on DHEA’s benefits and so highly recommend DHEA supplementation.

One of the reasons I believe DHEA is even more important today than ever before is because of the stress levels we are each experiencing and dealing with today, and the fact that DHEA helps to lower cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone created by your body to respond to stress. And chronic, unresolved stress is a killer. In fact, it’s one of the most damaging factors to your long-term health—and virility. Now don’t get me wrong, under the right circumstances, such as a life-or-death struggle or an emergency situation where you must save someone’s life, cortisol is great. Why? Because it redirects all of your body’s biological and instinctive resources to survival—you become incredibly strong, can run fast, climb high, think more clearly, and you can fight like a Viking berserker—but there is a problem. If you are not facing a life-or-death situation and yet experience chronically elevated stress and high cortisol levels day in and day out, the excessive cortisol will wreak havoc on your body because it redirects all of your body’s resources away from maintenance and repair and as a result accelerates the aging process. This phenomenon has been observed many times in distance that have chronically elevated levels of cortisol. This is one of the reasons that so many of them have excess fat covering their lower abs and lower back.


The good news is that DHEA protects your body from the hormone cortisol and the stress that triggers its production. Like DHEA, cortisol is secreted by the adrenal glands. If oversecreted, as the result of chronic stress, and cortisol output remains high over a prolonged period (months/years), the breakdown of the body’s tissues (muscle wasting, thinning of the skin, bone loss) and immune suppression can result. Common symptoms of chronic high cortisol include sleep disturbances, fatigue, depression, fat gain in the waist and hips, and constant, unexplained anxiety. Bottom line: this is not a good thing, and it is something you need to correct and alleviate immediately if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
