Dhea has been advocated to improve libido(modest studies) general health, grow hair. As per mayo clinic.
..There is sufficient evidence supporting the use of dhea in the treatment of adrenal insufficiency, depression, induction of labor, and systemic lupus erythematosus. Theoretically dhea may increase the risk of prostate, breast, ovarian, and other hormone-sensitive cancers http://www.Mayoclinic.
