What is 7-Keto-DHEA?

Not all of our stored fat is under the skin itself, our body stores fat in between our organs, this is called Visceral Adipose Tissue or VAT for short.  High accumulations of VAT will make your belly seem to protrude out, even if there is very little fat to pinch under the skin itself, your digestive organs are interlaced with pockets of fat that push your abdominal wall out. This is called VAT accumulation and there is one ingredient which has been proved to effectively help you get rid of Visceral Adipose Tissue, this ingredient is the steroid hormone known as 7-ketodehydroepiandrosterone, or 7-Keto-DHEA for short.

In the year 1998, the Journal of Steroids published a landmark study proving that 7-keto-DHEA can cause dramatic fat loss in test subjects.  The study in fact proved that 7-keto-DHEA is 2.5 times more active than DHEA at inducing the activity of thermogenic enzymes (thermogenic = fat burning).  Namely, the mitochondrial Glycerol-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase, Malic Enzyme and Fatty Acyl CoA Oxidase enzyme.  Activating these enzymes helps to turn energy production into a less efficient process for ATP (Adenosine triphosphate). Basically, your body uses more calories to generate heat than when not you are not using 7-Keto.

When the mitochondrial enzymes are activated by 7-Keto-DHEA, they promote the utilization of more stored fat for energy and heat production. This action is the proven basis for 7-Keto’s ability to increase thermogenesis and fat loss, through activation of the mitochondrial enzyme mechanism, the user of 7-Keto-DHEA can accelerate the utilization of stored fat for energy.

In another study done in 2007, researchers acquired more data proving the undeniable results of 7-Keto-DHEA on fat loss.  The 2007 study results showed that administration of 7-Keto-DHEA to obese adult humans, in combination with a calorie-deficient diet, does indeed reverses the decline in resting metabolic rate (RMR) that a person would normally suffer during a cutting diet. 7-Keto-DHEA basically forces your body to burn a lot of calories for heat, even on a cutting diet, and 7-Keto also has an ability to speed up RMR by some 1.4% above the baseline level for the test subjects.  This ingredient also demonstrated a significant 5.4% increase in the test subject’s daily RMR, even while on a calorie-restricted diet. So 7-Keto-DHEA is basically helping your body increase the amount of energy it uses, even while you diet.  Your body would want to be very efficient at storing energy, so the use of 7-Keto highjacks this caloric regulation mechanism and actually helps you burn more calories on a cutting diet.

7-Keto-DHEA achieves very strong fat-burning results, all without putting any stress on the cardiovascular or Central Nervous System (CNS); therefore, no jittery side effects are reported, which are common with heavy stimulant thermogenic supplements.

Although it is a great ingredient and will help burn fat very effectively, 7-Keto-DHEA is not very well absorbed when taken orally since the digestion process destroys most of this hormone.  The solution is using this hormonal compound in an transdermal delivery matrix so it can bypass digestion, a transdermal formula such as the one found in YohimFlame will dramatically increase the bio-availability of 7-Keto as well as increasing it's thermogenic potential. Our skin even acts as the perfect timed-release depot for the 7-keto-DHEA when it is applied.  So when 7-keto is used topically via a transdermal matrix, the levels of this hormone are kept pretty high all day long, even after just one daily application. What is even more exciting about this hormone is that 7-keto is the direct precursor to an even more thermogenic fat burning Steroid known as 7-beta DHEA. When 7-keto-DHEA passes the skin in the YohimFlame transdermal matrix much of the 7-Keto interacts with an enzyme in the skin called CYP11B1, this enzyme rapidly converts the 7-keto DHEA into the much stronger 7-beta DHEA.

On it's own, 7-keto-DHEA is a very effective ingredient to help get rid of Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT), this is the fat that accumulates in-between the digestive organs.  People who have high concentrations of VAT are characterized by having a hard and round protruding belly.  A round and hard pot belly is a sign of VAT accumulation, sometimes there is little fat on top of the abdominal muscles themselves, but the round hard belly means there is ample fat stored under the abdominal muscle wall all in-between the intestines.  Application of YohimFlame will help get rid of these fat pockets under the abdominal wall.

When 7-Keto-DHEA (7-ketodehydroepiandrosterone) is applied on the skin in the transdermal matrix of YohimFlame, this ingredient enters the body and converts to much stronger fat burning hormones called 7-Beta-DHEA.  Their action will target VAT (visceral adipose tissue), which is the fat that accumulates next to your intestines in the abdominal cavity.  Reduction of VAT will take inches off the waist of anybody using the product.  In the YohimFlame formula, the power of 7-Keto is combined with Yohimbe and Alpha-Yohimbe, both of which work to get rid of BAT (brow adipose tissue).  BAT are the fatty pockets on your obliques (love-handles) and the ring of hard fat around your belly button, as well as the fatty deposits under your nipples.  The combination of these ingredients attack fat in both areas, under the skin where BAT accumulates, and under the abdominal wall where VAT lives.  With this powerful combination of actions, it is pretty certain that anybody using YohimFlame should experience a significant decrease in the circumference of their mid-section, with a loss of about 3-4 inches per 30 day treatment.  Some users have reported losing as much as 7-8 inches off their waistline.
