Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

7-Keto-Dehydroepiandrosterone 200 mg Oral Capsules are a solid dosage form that consists of two gelatin or vegetarian shells enclosing the medication. This design allows for easy swallowing and ensures a precise dosage of the active ingredients. The primary active ingredient in this formulation is 7-Keto-Dehydroepiandrosterone, a naturally occurring metabolite of the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA).

DHEA is produced in the adrenal glands and is a precursor to male and female sex hormones. 7-Keto-DHEA is a byproduct of DHEA that does not convert into estrogen or testosterone, making it a safer alternative for those who need to boost their DHEA levels without the risk of increasing sex hormones. It is often used as a dietary supplement due to its potential to increase metabolism and promote weight loss.

7-Keto-DHEA has been studied for its potential to treat a variety of disease states. It has been shown to have immunostimulant effects, potentially aiding in the treatment of immune disorders. It may also have neuroprotective effects, suggesting potential benefits in neurodegenerative diseases. Additionally, due to its potential to boost metabolism, it may be beneficial in managing obesity and promoting weight loss.

It's important to note that while 7-Keto-DHEA has potential benefits, it should be used under the supervision of a healthcare provider. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, and low blood pressure. It may also interact with other medications, so it's important to discuss all medications and supplements you are currently taking with your healthcare provider.

As compounding pharmacists at Bayview Pharmacy, we are knowledgeable about the formulation and use of 7-Keto-Dehydroepiandrosterone 200 mg Oral Capsules. We are available to answer any questions you may have about this formulation. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us for more information.

Drug Interactions

A small arrow pointing down

7-Keto-Dehydroepiandrosterone (7-Keto-DHEA) is a metabolite of the parent hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). It is often used as a dietary supplement due to its potential benefits in weight loss, immune function, and aging. However, like all medications, it may interact with other drugs, potentially altering their effects or causing adverse reactions.

Firstly, 7-Keto-DHEA may interact with other hormone-related medications. This includes estrogen, testosterone, and other steroid hormones. The concurrent use of these medications may lead to hormonal imbalances, potentially causing side effects such as mood changes, weight gain, or acne. Therefore, patients on hormone therapy should consult their healthcare provider before starting 7-Keto-DHEA.

Secondly, 7-Keto-DHEA may interact with medications that affect the liver's ability to metabolize drugs, such as certain antifungal medications, antibiotics, and antiretroviral drugs. These interactions could potentially increase the risk of side effects or reduce the effectiveness of 7-Keto-DHEA or the other medication.

Thirdly, 7-Keto-DHEA may interact with blood-thinning medications, such as warfarin or aspirin. This could potentially increase the risk of bleeding. Patients on blood thinners should therefore use 7-Keto-DHEA with caution and under the supervision of a healthcare provider.

Lastly, 7-Keto-DHEA may interact with medications for diabetes, potentially affecting blood sugar levels. Patients with diabetes should monitor their blood sugar closely when starting or adjusting the dose of 7-Keto-DHEA.

It's important to note that this is not an exhaustive list of potential drug interactions. Patients should always inform their healthcare provider of all medications, supplements, and herbal products they are currently taking. Similarly, prescribers should thoroughly review the patient's medication history before prescribing 7-Keto-DHEA.

As for the disease states, 7-Keto-DHEA is often used for weight loss, aging, and boosting the immune system. However, the evidence supporting these uses is limited and more research is needed. It's also important to note that 7-Keto-DHEA is not a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise in the management of obesity or aging.

If you have any questions about 7-Keto-DHEA or its potential interactions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at Bayview Pharmacy. Our team of knowledgeable compounding pharmacists is always here to help.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

7-Keto-Dehydroepiandrosterone (7-Keto-DHEA) is a naturally occurring metabolite of the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). DHEA is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands and is a precursor to both testosterone and estrogen. 7-Keto-DHEA, however, does not convert into these sex hormones, thus providing the benefits of DHEA supplementation without the associated side effects.

In the form of 200 mg oral capsules, 7-Keto-DHEA is enclosed within two gelatin or vegetarian shells. This solid dosage form allows for easy swallowing and ensures a precise dosage of the active ingredient. Once ingested, the capsule dissolves in the stomach, releasing the 7-Keto-DHEA for absorption into the bloodstream.

7-Keto-DHEA is believed to promote weight loss by increasing the activity of thermogenic enzymes responsible for fatty acid oxidation. It enhances the body's resting metabolic rate, which aids in the burning of more calories even when the body is at rest. This makes it a potential treatment for obesity and overweight conditions.

Additionally, 7-Keto-DHEA is thought to boost the immune system. It increases the production of white blood cells and enhances the function of other immune cells. This makes it potentially beneficial in conditions where the immune system is compromised.

Furthermore, 7-Keto-DHEA may have anti-aging properties. It is believed to counteract the age-related decline in DHEA and its metabolites, which may help improve memory, slow aging, and maintain overall health.

It's important to note that while 7-Keto-DHEA has potential benefits, it should be used under the supervision of a healthcare provider. The safety and efficacy of 7-Keto-DHEA supplements have not been thoroughly studied, and there may be potential side effects and interactions with other medications. Always consult with a healthcare provider before starting any new medication or supplement.

Other Uses

A small arrow pointing down

7-Keto-DHEA, or 7-Keto-Dehydroepiandrosterone, is a supplement predominantly known for its potential role in weight loss and management. However, aside from its primary application, there are various other uses attributed to this formulation.

Some studies have highlighted its potential benefits in bolstering the immune system. Regular intake of 7-Keto-DHEA oral capsules could positively impact immune health by increasing the production of specific immune cells and reducing the risk of infection and disease. This may be particularly useful during seasonal changes when the risk of catching a cold or flu is higher.

7-Keto-DHEA is also theorized to improve cognitive function and mitigate memory loss. This is due to its potential influence on enhancing the mitochondrial function and reducing oxidative stress within the brain.

Another area where this formulation has shown potential benefits is in reducing signs of aging. While more comprehensive research is needed, a few studies suggest that 7-Keto-DHEA can play a role in slowing down the aging process by improving skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles, and promoting overall skin health.

It's important to note that while promising, many of these other benefits need further research to fully understand their scope and efficacy. Each individual may experience different effects, and certain health conditions or medications might interact with the use of 7-Keto-DHEA.

This compound should always be used under the guidance of healthcare professionals. Each patient's condition and needs will determine whether 7-Keto-DHEA is the most suitable supplement for them. The benefits must be weighed against possible side effects and contraindications, and it is not recommended for certain groups, such as pregnant or breastfeeding women.
