Q: What is it sourced from?
A: DHEA products are almost always derived from yams. However, just eating yams may not supply your body with DHEA since the body can't turn yams into DHEA. We have already done the work of converting properties in yams into DHEA so it is designed to be readily absorbed by your body.

Q: Where is this product manufactured?
A: All of our products are manufactured in GMP certified facilities in the U.S.A.

Q: Does this product contain gluten?
A: DHEA does not contain gluten.

Q: Will DHEA help with my sexual desire/dysfunction?
A: DHEA is designed to naturally increase the male and female sex hormones

Q: Why is capsule bigger than before?
A: You are correct that we now use a slightly larger capsule for our DHEA. I want to assure you that the formula, however, has stayed the same. I can 100% assure you that the potency and quality has not decreased. As with most nature-derived supplements, there may be a slight variation in the color from lot to lot. While slight variations in color are natural and to be expected, I certainly understand how it would be alarming when coupled with a packaging update. 

Q: Why is capsule size switching back and forth?
A: We switched to one of most reputable manufacturing facilities in the country a few months ago because we needed increased capacity. While the DHEA formula remained the same, the new facility doesn't pack the capsule as tightly and a bigger capsule is used. However, we still have some inventory left in Amazon's warehouses that contain the smaller capsule.

Q: Does this product contain caffeine?
A: No, DHEA does not contain caffeine.

Q: Are the sourced yams organic?
A: Yes, the DHEA is derived from organic non-GMO yams. 

Q: What is DHEA’s serving size?
A: Serving size: 1 veggie capsule. Servings per container: 60.

Q: Is DHEA allergen free?
A: DHEA is screened for Gluten, Soy, Milk, Fish, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Wheat and Preservatives, is Vegan, and contains no Artificial Ingredients.

Q: Is your formula micronized DHEA?
A: Yes, our formula is from pure, micronized DHEA.
