DHEA is produced in the brain, ovaries and testes and is the most common hormone in the human body. Its levels peak in people in their 20s and then rapidly plummet by the 30s.

Scientists in Tel Aviv conducted the world's first clinical trial using DHEA after women praised it for helping with conception. It is sold worldwide and online to fight ageing.

The researchers were amazed by the results of a small study carried out with their patients.

"We believed that a reduction in this hormone has a part to play in older

women having difficulty in conceiving when using IVF," the Daily Express quoted Dr Adrian Shulman, director of the IVF Unit at Meir Medical Center and a professor at Tel Aviv University, as saying.

"The results achieved were beyond our wildest dreams. We never believed there would be a 300 per cent increase in a woman's chances of becoming pregnant when she took the supplement," Shulman added.
