Our weight loss can be made even more effective with the help of the naturally occuring metabolite of DHEA called 7-keto. Although it has no effect on our sex hormones as a capsule (it differs strongly from DHEA, which also affects our estrogen and testosterone levels), however, if we want to make our training plan or diet even more effective, we can find a useful dietary supplement in it. In Vitamin360's offer, you can choose from capsules in different packages and formats - choose your favourite product from our online store!
What is 7-keto-DHEA?
7-keto-DHEA is a metabolite of dehydroepiandrosterone, i.e. DHEA formed during the breakdown of testosterone and estrogen. It is therefore a derivate of DHEA that helps both men and women maintain appropriate body weight. It regulates our hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and cortisol, all without directly interfering with the functioning of sex hormones. Unlike DHEA, it does not convert into testosterone or estrogen. Thus, we can enjoy all the benefits of DHEA without having to face the unpleasant hormonal side effects associated with it, since no steroids are formed from it.
The most important use of 7-keto-DHEA is to reduce our body weight. Since it speeds up our digestion, when used as a dietary supplement, taking 200 mg daily for 8 weeks can increase weight loss by up to 2-3 times compared to those who so not take it.
Like DHEA, our body does not produce enough og 7-keto-DHEA after the age of 30. By the time we're 40, it's only half of what it was at 20, and the decline will continue for the rest of our lives - unless we do something about it. If we replace it by taking dietary supplements, it can not only extend our lifespan but also bring many additional benefits!
Beneficial effects of taking 7-keto-DHEA
The main benefits of 7-keto-DHEA are the followings:
Supports cognitive brain functions
The memory-improving effect of DHEA also applies when taking 7-keto-DHEA. In this way, even in old age, our minds can remain as fresh as when we were young.
Regulates cortisol levels
It can solve our anxiety and every day tensions by helping to keep our important stress hormone, cortisol, at a healthy level. At the same time, it increases our adrenaline level, so to avoid anxiety, it is important no to overdose.
Gives energy for training
It makes our training and weight loss more effective by increasing muscle strength, similar to DHEA. But compared to DHEA, it supports the burning of calories with heat release (thermogenesis) 2.5 times better. This can mean up to +96 calories per day and 672 calories per week. And all this without causing side effects like other thermogenic fat-burning products. Moreover, it can even stimulate our metabolism in a resting stage. If we are overweight, in addition to our body fat percentage, our BMI value can also be reduced by taking 7-keto-DHEA - while maintaining the integrity of our muscle tissue.
Contributes to normal T3 hormone levels and a healthy metabolism
It stimulates the functioning of the thyroid gland, as it can directly influence the level of the T3 hormone, which plays a key role in it. It, therefore, plays an important role in healthy metabolism. It can also make our hormonal system more balanced.
Supports a healthy body composition
It increases the absorption of minerals into our body and bones, so we don't have to worry about osteoporosis even in old age if we take this dietary supplement regularly. We can also strengthen and "rejuvenate" our immune system by taking it.
Slows down ageing
Just like "plain" DHEA, 7-keto-DHEA also has a positive anti-ageing effect, stimulates our metabolism, and increases our mobility. It can also smooth our skin.
The dosage of 7-keto-DHEA depends on the individual: it is influenced by our current state of health, our age, diseases and many other personalized factors. For this reason, it is important to consult our doctor before using it, who will be able to help us set the exact dose. Most 7-keto-DHEA dietary supplements contain 100 mg of the active ingredient per serving - this is usually recommended to be taken twice a day with meals.
As a dietary supplement, 7-keto-DHEA is completely safe when taken orally for 8 weeks. It rarely causes side effects, but if it does, they are usually mild (low blood pressure, nausea, dizziness, acne, headache, increased heart rate or heartburn).
However, it is not recommended to be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding, as there is not enough clinical data available on its effects in these conditions. In addition, it is not recommended for cancer patients or those prone to cancer to take any dietary supplements containing DHEA.
