DHEA and Sleep Quality

Troublesome and frustrating, sleeping problems associated with aging can negatively impact one’s quality of life. Hormonal imbalance during this stage is thought to affect sleep quality, resulting in lack of sleep and extreme fatigue. Specifically, the age-related decline in various hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and DHEA contributes to insomnia. Because DHEA is a precursor to several other important hormones in the body, researchers believe that restoring DHEA to youthful levels can help improve sleep quality. A number of clinical trials support the beneficial effects of DHEA on sleep:
1. In men, a single dose of DHEA (500 mg) induces a significant increase in rapid eye movement (REM), one of the deepest stages of sleep. [265]
2. In healthy postmenopausal women, oral DHEA administration at a dose of 50 mg daily for 3 weeks enhances sleep quality. [266]
