This supplement benefits my energy and metabolism but it does increase facial hair. Im female and 47 so I think it must disrupt hormone balance on some level. I do find when I stop taking it, or take a break, that I return to weight gain and sluggishness , so I think someone should be cautious about taking this supplement becasue at some point you cant take hormones forever and not expect it to imbalance something. My advice is to talk to a doctor who knows about the safety in taking this longer term.
I have never used 7 keto DHEA but it looks great compared to DHEA as it does not interfere with hormones. Benefits are :
- Fat burning
- Increase HDL cholesterol
- Helps with PMS
- Helps normalising thyroid's hormones
Got this brand to try as my regular brand was out of stock and I discovered that this is actually cheaper than my previous brand! I buy this to maintain a healthy weight together with proper balanced diet and regular exercises.
My dr suggested DHEA for my bone health (primary and secondary caused osteoporosis). I was scared to use DHEA because I didn't want a mustache or rogue chin hairs nor the need to look for rogue long hairs each day to make sure I didn't scare anyone.
I don't know if this does the same as DHEA.. but at least it is stabilized DHEA (by stabilized I mean it won't be used to make rogue hairs the way that normal DHEA can for certain women). My dr may not agree with my choice, but i wanted stabilized DHEA that couldn't be used for anything but DHEA in the body and this is it.
