7 Keto-Genic DHEA for Cortisol & Fat Loss?


#1

Was doing a little research on this (7 Keto-genic DHEA) as I seem to have high cortisol and going to be doing more bloodwork.

Does anyone have any experience, effects on cortisol or fat lass properties for it?


#2

I have not [yet] heard of a DHEA supplementation link to cortisol *. DHEA is not upstream to cortisol, progesterone is.

  • please post links

7 Keto-genic DHEA may have some interesting effects. But I wonder its been a metabolite of DHEA means that taking DHEA will then increase 7 Keto-genic DHEA as a part of a natural progression.


#3

From what I read dhea compared to 7-keto is it does not aromatize testosterone

True, but is that an outcome that you need?

Just looking for a solution to help with cortisol.
Stumbled across this when looking to find how tren effects cortisol.
See If this has any positive effects with anyone (results)
As the only other solutions I have read is diet and exercise… and pregnelone which you did mention in your other post.
