    Thumbs up Rosie's Review of the 7-keto DHEA Topical


    With their Grape flavoured BC+EAA ALREADY a STAPLE in my supplement arsenal, and having used a myriad of LG Sciences' products, I had no hesitation in asking to test the beta topical 7-keto DHEA for Eric, and thank you to Chris, who was kind enough to give me the opportunity to.


    What is it? For more information, review Topical 7-Keto.

    Dosage: The recommended dosage is 12 sprays once (or twice) daily, ideally post-shower - ~6 sprays is 25mg of 7-keto DHEA, so the recommended daily dosage is 50-100mg per day. I was using a lot MORE than 12 sprays, right from the start - DOUBLING the "per dose" initially, and then a little more, until I was using 100-150mg 1-2 times daily. From 15 December (i.e. the first two weeks), I used 24 (i.e. 100mg) pumps of the 7-keto DHEA topical applied post-post-training/morning shower. From 25 December (i.e. the last two weeks), I used 24-36 pumps (i.e. 100-150mg) of the 7-keto DHEA topical applied post-post-training/morning shower and 24-36 pumps (i.e. 100-150mg) pre-bed.

    Smell: 10/10. The 7-keto DHEA topical smelt like alcohol - it was not strong, and the scent faded and disappeared within minutes of spraying, so no lingering smell after application or during the day, or when sweated, etc.

    Feel: 10/10. A quick cool touch, like that you get when you get water sprayed on you. The 7-keto DHEA topical is not greasy or sticky after application.

    Spreadability/Application: 10/10. The 7-keto DHEA topical is not a lotion, but a spray. When I was only using 100mg of the 7-keto DHEA, if I tried and spread it immediately after application to anywhere but the place where the spray hit my skin, it would NOT spread there, but with more sprays it would if I wanted to, but I had to do it fast, because the 7-keto DHEA topical was dry in mere seconds after spraying it on my skin.

    Body Composition: 9/10. Pre-7-keto DHEA topical I was 118 pounds at 10% bodyfat. Currently I am 115.2 pounds at 9.8% bodyfat. Overall, I lost three pounds (although, weight is irrelevant because it fluctuates so much, and only last week I was 111 pounds) and 0.2% bodyfat. However, I am NOT going to look at the overall (which doesn't look that impressive), and instead are going to look at the first two weeks of use and last two weeks of use (and you can see the difference in the dosage used). After two weeks of use at using 100-150mg daily (one application), I had actually gone up to 123 pounds at 11% bodyfat. The last two weeks, using 200-300mg a day (two applications), I dropped back to 9.8% bodyfat (this is the BIGGEST decrease in bodyfat that I have EVER had in a single week!) - actually did this in the third week - and maintained it (weight fluctuating between 111-115 pounds). Also to note that the last two weeks I have not had much of an appetite (which caused the dramatic weight loss down to 111 pounds), but have been forcing down meals this last week. The higher dosage definitely makes a NOTICEABLE difference!

    Cortisol Levels: N/A. Although I would have liked to see what my cortisol levels were like pre and post the 7-keto DHEA topical, unfortunately I did not have any bloods done. I can say however, that the last two weeks of using the higher dosage (200-300mg o a day)of the 7-keto DHEA topical have been the LEAST stressed I have felt in YEARS (even though circumstances would say that my stress should be off the charts!), which is quite something!

    Sides: 9/10. The only "effect" that could possibly have occurred was that my joints started playing up. In fairness, I don't think this can be attributed to the 7-keto DHEA topical, even though it decreases cortisol, because I was also lifting heavier AND was NOT using Erase during my use of the topical (and Erase is usually what saves my joints).

    Other Effects: 10/10. No water retention - in fact, the first week I started using 200-300mg of 7-keto DHEA a day, I started DRYING out, and it was especially noticeable in my upper body and midsection.

    Pros: This was the most enjoyable topical I have ever used. No lingering smell. No burning sensation. Dries fast - non-sticky and non-greasy. I don't have to rub it on - just spray, and nothing went wrong with the spray nozzle. No stains left by the topical on or to get on my clothes even if I got wet or sweated. No water retention - like you get with most topicals. The bottle lasted a LONG time - and would have lasted a whole lot longer than it will if the recommended dosage was followed.

    Cons: The only issue I had was that I used so much re sprays daily. I got the best results when I was using 200-300mg of 7-keto DHEA daily, which was 8-12 times MORE than was recommended.

    Overall: 9.7/10. Once I was using 200-300mg of 7-keto a day, my body composition started to change dramatically, and I made the BIGGEST DEcrease in body composition over a 7-day period, with of a loss of 1.2% bodyfat in my third week of use. The last week (i.e. the fourth week), I cut my training back from 2-3 hours a day to only 60-90 minutes a day, started eating again (even though I had to force the food down), and traveling, and maintained 9.8% bodyfat!

    Would I use again? Definitely! This product seems like it was literally "made for me" - a perpetually highly stressed individual, the 7-keto DHEA topical is perfect for me, and I actually want to make this a STAPLE in my supplement arsenal!

    Would I recommend? Absolutely! No hesitation

    Thanks . . . If you say so. Proper nutrition, intense training, enough recovery, and stress management are VITAL to that success, as well as such supplements . . .

    The product spoke for itself. Definitely right for me - at higher dosages. The difference that dosing higher made - especially as I concurrently DEcreased my training by HALF - with 200-300mg of 7-keto DHEA daily was amazing!

    Rosie, a question-

    Do you believe this product would be effective for someone with a slightly higher body fat %? Say in the high teens?

    I'm curious if it is more of a final body fat reducer for people with already low numbers, or will it help anyone as long as their % isn't too high?

    Thanks for any input

    7-keto DHEA helps with cortisol control, so it could technically be used by anyone - and not just for fat loss, but in controlling cortisol in general, even for health reasons. No matter what your body composition, the 7-keto DHEA topical would have effects, even if you don't notice them in changing your physique.

    I have no hesitation in recommending the 7-keto DHEA topical, but you have to realize that supplements are just to SUPPLEMENT your NUTRITION AND TRAINING - you should NOT be relying on them for results!

    In saying that, as I have said many times over, one does not need to use a fat burner, topicals, or such product IMO unless they are ALREADY relatively lean and just want to lose that last 1-2% bodyfat - for example, IMO males 8-10% bodyfat and females 12-15% bodyfat could use them, but any higher and it would be pointless. Most people need to get the basics right before adding in anything else.

    The lower your body composition, the more effective such products are going to be, because a loss of 1-2% bodyfat when your body composition is already lean can make a dramatic difference, whereas losing 1-2% bodyfat at a higher body composition, you may not even notice the effects, even if there are some.

    I wouldn't recommend such a product to a female in the high teens, and for a male, you're better off spending your money on getting your NUTRITION AND TRAINING in order. If your body composition is that high, then you're not doing something right with your BASE factors and you should correct those FIRST.

    If the bottles are the same size that would indeed be cool Not sure about being more potent though, as more concentration would mean it might not end up being a spray . . .
