Increase Your Metabolism the Right Way
As you may already know, supplements are not a magic cure-all. They do not fix the problem by themselves. However, when used in combination with a clean diet and an active lifestyle, supplements can be the linking puzzle piece that places all your hard work into a full, clean picture. Supplements can help fill the holes in your diet or help you take full advantage of a hard training session when the right meal alone just isn’t enough for your body and your goals.
One supplement worth discussing for those of you looking to increase your metabolism for weight loss and getting lean is 7-keto-DHEA. This powerful metabolite is a by-product of DHEA (dehydoepiandrosterone) a “parent hormone” that is formed in the body that is then converted to steroid hormones such as androgen and estrogen. Although 7-keto is a by-product, it does not act like DHEA. Instead 7-keto speeds up the body’s metabolism and heat production to promote weight loss, hence the reason we have added it to our products Growth and 7-Keto Plus. According to WebMd, this metabolite is also used to improve lean body mass and build muscle, increase the activity of the thyroid gland, boost the immune system, enhance memory, and slow aging. Nothing too fancy, as you can see.
The site herbalprovider.com, referenced two clinical trials published in peer-reviewed scientific journals that used 7-Keto for weight-loss at a 200mg per day dose. Both trials were double blind and placebo controlled, meaning neither the researcher or the participant knows which participants belong to the control group nor the test group. Further, the trials were performed on a test group that was given 7-Keto at a dose of 100mg twice daily. The studies found that when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program, 7-Keto:
- Helps activate 3 thermogenic enzymes
- Increases metabolism by 5.4% without stimulants
- Helps metabolize fat stores in the body, resulting in weight loss
- Helps enhance the body’s resting metabolic rate
- Show 3x more weight-loss than diet and exercise alone
So regardless of the fact that summer is coming to a slow end leaving your bathing suit in its drawers for longer periods of time, adding 7-Keto to your supplement routine now is smart. This powerful supplement has been proven, with more tests and trials being conducted daily, to aid in helping you achieve your desired body weight and physique. Put in the work now with your diet and training to see how 7-Keto can aid you in reaching your goals. Ironing out the kinks during the winter time allows you to show off that lean physique for the entirety of the 2016 Summer without shame.
