7-Keto DHEA 90 capsules - 7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas 7-Keto DHEA 90 capsules is a naturally occurring metabolite of DHEA. It is unable to metabolize into sex hormones; therefore, it can provide many of the same benefits of DHEA without its associated side effects
who can benefit from 7-Keto DHEA
Those seeking to enhance metabolism, promote youthfulness and whose body levels of DHEA have fallen can benefit from using 7-Keto DHEA.
In the body, 7-Keto DHEA is responsible for activating enzymes responsible for fatty acid and carbohydrate metabolism.
The body’s production of 7-Keto DHEA declines with age, which is directly correlated with a decline in metabolic rate
7-keto-DHEA has clinically been proven to increase metabolic rate and improve Body Mass Index
benefits of 7-keto
• avoids the side effects of DHEA
• delivers 100mg of 7-keto DHEA per capsule
• uses Humanetics 7-keto
• proven increase of metabolism and improved Body Mass Index
Youth is all about hormones. Sex hormones in particular are critical to maintaining vibrancy and good health. As people age, the levels of sex hormones in the body drop precipitously. Replacing certain hormones with supplements may be a consideration people as they age. Hormones are involved in the proper functioning of almost every system in the body including cardiovascular, brain, bone and immune health. As we age, changing levels of hormones can affect these functions.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands and the most common steroid hormone in the body. DHEA is produced in our bodies from cholesterol and secreted by the adrenals into the bloodstream. DHEA is then converted, as needed, into other hormones like testosterone and estrogen.
Importantly, excess DHEA is not used by the body and circulates untouched in the bloodstream. This allows strict control of testosterone and estrogen levels. This also means that if one’s body already produces enough DHEA, supplementing with more is unlikely to have any beneficial effect.
Often referred to as the “fountain of youth” hormone, DHEA levels are closely associated with good health, while low levels are connected to various health problems, and it is well-documented that DHEA decreases with age. Furthermore, there may also be sex differences in DHEA level changes. It appears that the ability of women to produce DHEA may decrease more quickly than that of men. By age 65 in humans, DHEA production declines by nearly 80%, on average, contributing to symptoms that are normally attributed to old age.
7-Keto DHEA: the perfect hormone
Among DHEA’s many natural metabolites, 7-Keto DHEA has attracted much attention for its ability to support cholesterol health, weight management, muscle retention, stress management and immune function in a safe and effective manner. Much of this may be overblown hype, but there are undoubtedly some beneficial effects.
According to scientists at the National Academy of Sciences, 7-Keto DHEA offers the potential benefits of DHEA without the risks. 7-Keto is not converted into estrogen or testosterone. It also does not cause growth of unwanted hair or acne, side-effects that have been reported with DHEA use. Safety studies show 7-Keto does not damage DNA in rats and monkeys, and has no other adverse effects, even at 70 times the recommended amount suggested for use in humans.
As the body’s production of DHEA declines with age, so does its production of 7-Keto. It appears weight gain also parallels decreasing levels of DHEA and its metabolites. 7-Keto may help people metabolize fat through a process known as thermogenesis, which generates heat and energy that consumes calories and burns fat. 7-Keto activates liver enzymes that stimulate fatty acid oxidation. Clinical studies of 7-Keto DHEA demonstrated increases in metabolic rate and improvement in body mass index.
Recreating the youthful balance of hormones is where DHEA’s value really stands out. Because it is metabolized into other hormones, DHEA allows the body to choose which hormone is needed, which accounts for the wide range of anti-aging benefits. DHEA’s metabolites, including 7-Keto DHEA, also show unique youthpromoting benefits. Practitioners recommend DHEA and 7-Keto DHEA for people over age 40 who want to slow the aging process and maintain a healthy hormonal balance. Together with a sensible diet and exercise program, DHEA and 7-Keto can add significantly to health and longevity.

Although 7-Keto does not raise estrogen or testosterone levels, and large amounts appear to have no adverse effects in animals, long- term safety for humans has not been demonstrated. Being chemically related to steroid hormones, the potential for adverse effects must be considered. People wishing to take 7-Keto, particularly those who have a thyroid disorder or are taking thyroid hormone, should consult a physician.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Leptin, leptin resistance and SIRT1
After demand for resveratrol and pterostilbene went up considerably, due to a remark on tv by a doctor about its' effect on leptin and cardiovascular function, we got a lot of requests to explain how leptin works.
Currently, a major topic in the field of obesity research is the link between obesity and the hormone leptin. Some evidence suggests that obese-prone individuals don’t respond to increasing leptin levels in the same way that non-obese-prone individuals do, which is the reason obesity is now being associated with possible “leptin resistance.” Scientists first discovered leptin in 1994, after years of research focused on hormones that affect body weight and calorie intake. While initially researchers believed the discovery could be used to create powerful weight loss supplements, this has never happened.
How does leptin function in the body and where does the hormone come from? Leptin interacts with areas of the brain that control hunger and eating behavior. The nickname “the starvation hormone” has been given to leptin because levels tend to plummet when someone restricts their calorie intake too much, exercises more and loses body fat. These are all factors involved in what’s called “starvation mode.”
Meanwhile, ghrelin is called a “hunger hormone” that increases your desire to eat.
At your ideal “set point weight,” fat cells produce a given amount of leptin, which maintains the internal energy balance needed for necessary cellular function and proper weight management. In most healthy adults, changes in body weight will trigger changes in leptin, causing appetite to either increase when body fat falls or decrease when body fat rises — although in some susceptible individuals this energy-balance system seems to malfunction.
There’s still a lot to learn about how leptin resistance or decreased sensitivity to leptin’s signals develops, and what can be done to prevent or reverse it. Many experts believe that eating a highly processed diet — especially while also leading a stressful and mostly sedentary lifestyle — is the perfect storm for developing leptin resistance.
Even if someone is genetically susceptible to weight gain or obesity, there’s still a lot they can do to help prevent this from happening, especially eating a nutrient-dense diet, getting enough exercise and taking steps to manage stress.
Exercise and immunity: staying fit at home
When you are used to go to a gym to exercise and are forced to stay at home, it is good to know there are alternatives to gym workouts. Since most of those exercises are shown on short videos with an explanation we will not present much text this time , apart from explaining why exercise is so important for immune system.
How to love your body?
With all these standards for beauty, it’s easy to plummet into a spiral of body-hating. Don’t succumb to the pressure! Love your body, no matter what!
Body shaming is, sadly, a trend these days. You have songs that hate on the skinny girls because “real women have curves.” Then you have songs about shaming people who don’t happen to have the body type of a Victoria’s Secret model. We all know that no one is perfect, but there are still some people who insist on telling people how they should look, how they should act, what size they should be, what their hair color should look like.
Everyone has the right to love their own body. Whether you’re skinny, fat, tall, short, missing a limb, dark-skinned, pale-skinned, what have you, every single body in the world deserves to be loved. It’s just a shame that so many people insist on hating on their bodies, simply because they don’t conform to the unrealistic standards set by society.
Exercise or diet, what's better for weight loss?Especially in January, we are asked whether it is better to lose weight by exercise or by diet.
The response I mostly give is that diet is the more efficient method but makes you grumpy and if you overdo it, will lose muscle, while exercise can make you happy, fit and strong.
A few years ago the discovery how in general, exercise doesn't make you lose weight made headlines.
In my former life as a long-distance cyclist I'd have shaken my head in disbelief.. after all, every single spring, fat would almost literally melt away once the cycling season started.
Anyhow, as counterintuitive as it seems to mile-eating cardio-junkies, exercising more is not the best solution to weight loss mostly because the weight piles on off-season.
True enough , once the season was over, the fat would pile on equally fast. Why?
Quite simply, unlike many of my cycling buddies who were also passionate about (marathon) skating, I didn't practice any other sport. Some others refused to skate indoor and only wanted to skate on natural ice, which has become a rarity in the the past 30 years!
Of course I knew exercise burns calories, but somehow it is very difficult to adjust to diet upwards or downwards as appetite lags behind so much!
Everything really started with an advertisement in an American muscle magazine with the name MM2K (Muscle Media 2000) for a product called DHEA
At the time, MM2K was a revolutionary magazine because they didn't tell you lies about doping use in sports and bodybuilding and strength sports in particular, unlike other magazines that were solely focused on inspirational stories and faking how bodyubuilding was a doping-free sports.
By contrast, MM2K wrote openly about doping, supplements, nutrition, training, and other gossip stories about health, sports and politics.
MM2K had great contributing authors, such as Bill Philips himself, Dan Duchaine who was seen as the 'mad scientist' and Charles Poliquin, a well-respected personal trainer. Dan Duchaine wrote extensively about diet drugs, which he wrote down in his booklet 'Dirty Dieting', which would become the starting point for more diet books written by Lyle McDonald.
DHEA, what is it and why is it so popular?DHEA is an abbreviation for dehydroepiandrosterone, which is a steroid hormone available in dietary supplement form. Inside the body, it is made in the adrenal glands.
In the body, DHEA is converted into male and female sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone.
DHEA is also responsible for developing “androgenic effects” that are referred to as masculinization. Examples of such changes include production of oilier skin, changes in body odor and growth of armpit and pubic hair.
On the other hand, DHEA can play a part in physiological pathways, since it is believed to bind to certain receptor types and act as a neurosteroid that directly affects neuronal excitability.
DHEA production peaks around age 25. Afterwards DHEA levels decline steadily.
