Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a natural steroid hormone produced from cholesterol by the adrenal glands found atop of the kidneys in the human body. DHEA is also produced in the gonads, adiopose tissue and the brain. DHEA is structurally similar to, and is a precursor of, testosterone and estrogen. In blood, most DHEA is found as its derivative dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, DHEA-S.
