DHEA, the most abundant steroid in the blood of adult humans, peaks in early adulthood and declines with age. Animal research indicates that 7-Keto, a natural metabolite of DHEA, is a more active inducer of thermogenic enzymes than DHEA. Research on humans has shown that supplementation with 7-Keto is well tolerated. It is not converted to estrogens or androgens, a point of concern for many people.

Thermogenic supplements are health products that cause the body’s temperature to rise, making you burn more calories and convert the stored fat into energy. Most thermogenic supplements are composed of caffeine, ephedrine and aspirin or the ECA stack. Recent studies have claimed that prolonged use of ephedrine is not that safe and most thermogenic supplements now use bitter orange or citrus aurantium as a replacement for ephedrine.
Another common type of thermogenic is xanthinolnicotinate, which is also used to treat short-term memory loss for the elderly. It is a type of niacin or vitamin B3 that helps increase blood flow and circulation.
Most thermogenics are available in pill or powder form, which can be easily incorporated into your meals and snacks. You must take note of the anticipated side effects of thermogenic supplements, such as increased heart rate, nausea, flushing of skin and in some cases, dehydration. Since your body heat will be rising, be prepared to take plenty of fluids and take appropriate rest periods in between sessions of intense workouts.
Take your thermogenics half an hour before an anticpated high-impact physical activity and you should experience periods of increased mental alertness, warmed muscles and faster reflexes. Think of it as drinking lots of coffee without the acidic factor in your tummy.
Be careful not to take too much thermogenics especially if you have underlying heart conditions since the combination with your heart pills may not be the best. Consult with your doctor if you are considering taking thermogenics for more than a month.
