Abstract

The association between low plasma dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) levels and the increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is well known. However, DHEA's ergogenic influence is less well known. Supraphysiological dosages may be necessary for enhanced performance in young healthy adults. Subsequently, the current study examined the effects of short-term (21 day) DHEA supplementation on cardiac and skeletal muscle function.
