    I was having a read on DHEA and noticed that a metabolite, 7-Keto DHEA, is sold as a dietary supplementary claimed to yield some DHEA benefit while avoiding to convert to estrogen or testosterone. It has a Wiki page which lists some studies. Is it just commercially biased science, or does that molecule really magically increase metabolism without the side effect of (excessive amounts of) DHEA?

    HUM5007, a novel combination of thermogenic compounds, and 3-acetyl-7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone: each increases the resting metabolic rate of overweight adults

    I would avoid it. Bad reactions from clients...

    Is that still after a conservative dosage? Because for DHEA for example, I wouldn't be surprised if people typically overdosed (a capsule of DHEA is often 100mg!) and thus resulting bad reactions just because of that.

    No it was still smaller doses. Considering the great results I have seen with 2-5 mg of DHEA powder in fat, I think theres no point.
