3 Key Benefits of DHEA

April 03, 2015 2 min read

  DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) which is made from cholesterol is naturally produced by your adrenal glands.  The adrenal glands (also known as suprarenal glands) are endocrine glands that produce a wide variety of hormones. They are found on the top of the kidneys and consist of a number of different layers that directly influence the structure and function of the glands. Primarily DHEA is found in your brain. The average adult makes about 25 mg of DHEA per day and the production is highest in your 20’s and it is no surprise that DHEA decreases with age. Although many supporters claim that DHEA is a miracle supplement athletes should be aware that it is on the US Olympic Committee and NCAA’s banned substances list.  DHEA can enhance sex drive, mood, and memory and boost immunity against many infectious diseases including AIDS. So what are the main benefits of supplementing with DHEA?
  1.  Bone Density: Since your strength will increase you will effectively be able to lift more weights.  It is scientifically proven that weight bearing exercises build bone density.
  2. Fat loss on those tough to trim areas: DHEA is shown to trim visceral fat (abdominal fat) when taken in conjunction with a diet and exercise program
  3. Better Mood: Studies show that supplementing with 25mg of DHEA can counteract feelings of depression and moodiness.
If the above sounds too much for you another alternative to DHEA is 7-keto. There are many fat burners that will contain 7-keto, as it does not convert to the sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone) as DHEA does. 7-keto has been shown to be easily tolerated by most and also provides many of the same benefits. As with any supplementation please contact your physician before starting a new routine.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
