The Super Hormone Promise

By William Regelson, MD and Carol Colman

The authors provide information on DHEA, pregnenolone, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, growth hormone and melatonin. DHEA is strongly emphasized and its many potential benefits are explained. Some of the possible positive outcomes of supplementing DHEA include improved immune function, protection against the negative effects of stress, prevention of life-threatening blood clots, lowering of cholesterol levels, reduction of fat formation and appetite.

Research studies are cited, whenever possible, to validate the claimed benefits of striving for youthful hormone levels.

Their book is likely to make you want to try hormones, especially DHEA. This is not necessarily a bad outcome but the authors tend to be somewhat reticent about warning the reader of potential risks of self-experimentation. They do encourage hormone testing and recommend that their approach be tried in cooperation with a physician. The problem is that there is a definite shortage of doctors knowledgeable about and/or ready to try experimenting with these hormones.
