7 Keto Charge

7 Keto Charge


7-Keto DHEA Cream 2 oz.

DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced by your body's adrenal glands. These are glands just above your kidneys.

DHEA functions as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. Precursors are substances that are converted by the body into a hormone.

DHEA production peaks in your mid-20s. In most people, production gradually declines with age.

7 Keto Charge DHEA is a registered trade name for the compound 3-acetyl-7-oxo DHEA, a stabilized form of 7-oxo DHEA. Once ingested, acetyl-7-oxo DHEA is cleaved to 7-oxo DHEA, a DHEA metabolite naturally found in the body. Similar to DHEA, 7-oxo DHEA is known to decline with age. By age 40, some may experience as much as a 40% drop in 7-keto DHEA and DHEA levels as compared to average levels at age 25. However, unlike DHEA, 7-oxo DHEA does not convert into estrogenic or androgenic hormones.
When under stress, the body produces higher than normal levels of cortisol and may divert adrenal precursor hormones towards synthesizing cortisol rather than DHEA. In addition, it has been demonstrated in vitro that 7-oxo DHEA and cortisol interfere with each other’s metabolism because they use the same enzyme system, HSD1 and HSD2 (11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase). Hence, high cortisol levels may interfere with the conversion of DHEA to 7-oxo DHEA. Conversely, by supplementing with 7-oxo DHEA, this may interfere with the activation of cortisone to its active form cortisol, as proposed by a number of researchers. The improvement in immune function in stressed mice by supplementation with 7-keto may be an indirect proof of this mechanism.
Thus, supplementation with 7 Keto Charge DHEA may counteract a decline in its levels due to aging or high cortisol. It is important to note that in addition to mental and physical stress, dieting may increase cortisol levels if the caloric restriction is too severe and/or the meals are not properly spaced throughout the day.

Safety of 7-keto
7 Keto Charge DHEA has a long history of safe use with oral administration. These studies have shown that supplementation with 7-keto is nontoxic and does not affect sex hormone levels. 7-keto has been sold commercially as a dietary supplement since 1998 and has not been linked to any adverse effects.

7 Keto Charge DHEA may support:

• Promote weight loss without the use of stimulants:
– Three times more weight loss than with diet and exercise alone
– Reverses the decrease in resting metabolic rate (RMR) caused by dieting (increased metabolic rate by 5.4%
during weight loss compared to placebo)
– May improve low T4 & T3 thyroid hormone levels in chronically stressed individuals (based on an animal study)
– Activates three thermogenic enzymes in the mitochondria
• Compensate for age-related decline in 7-keto DHEA production
• Compensate for cortisol-induced reduction of 7-keto DHEA
• Reduce tissue levels of cortisol by reducing local conversion of cortisone to cortisol
• Improve memory
• Reduce alcohol cravings due to activity on GABA receptors
• Augment immune response in the elderly and subjects under stress
• Alleviate depression caused by chronic stress
