Abstrakt

DHEA, prasterone, (3β)-3-hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one, is a natural secondary metabolite that is, mainly in its sulphated form, present in young humans. After the age of 30 its concentration gradually lowers. When it is supplemented to the elderly people, their well-being and sexual functions grow up together with mental capacity. Alternatively, it may help to cure number of diseases. However, as it is considered to be anabolic androgen, i.e., doping, its use is in the Czech Republic limited on the medical prescription only.
