B-AET: the fat-burner you’ve never heard of

B-AET, also known as Beta-Androstenetriol, is a DHEA metabolite that offers incredible health benefits, anti-catabolism, and fat-loss.

Unfortunately, chances are you’ve never heard of this compound before. Fortunately, the reason why you’ve never heard of it before is that it’s incredibly hard to find, and not because it has some major drawback that makes it unusable.

B-AET is very similar to 7-KETO DHEA in that it’s a non-HPTA-suppressing hormone that burns fat by inhibiting cortisol, but in my experience (I’ve tried both), B-AET provides superior results.

Why Cortisol negates fat-loss

Before explaining the benefits of B-AET, I think it’s only fair to explain why cortisol inhibition facilitates fat loss.

Cortisol is a hormone that the body releases in response to stress. From an evolutionary point of view, the job of Cortisol is to facilitate fight or flight reactions in the face of danger, but in the modern world stress is much more prevalent and caused by a multitude of factors that we can’t easily escape from or fight against (deadlines, financial struggle, important exams, etc…).

Cortisol is an extremely important hormone that has kept us alive as a species for thousands of years but being under stress on a constant basis and having elevated cortisol all the time could make someone very unhealthy, fat and catabolic.

Cortisol causes people to crave foods high in sugar and fats while increasing blood sugar levels and causing insulin resistance, another known cause of excess fat accumulation.

Furthermore, some studies have found that there is a clear link between having high cortisol levels and storing fat in the abdominal region, primarily as visceral (internal) fat.

On the other hand, Cortisol is catabolic and causes muscle loss because it lowers Growth Hormone levels while inhibiting protein synthesis and causing protein breakdown.

If that was not enough to make you afraid of high cortisol, you should also keep in mind that Cortisol can increase blood pressure and increase the chances of someone getting heart disease, weaken immunity, impede memory retention, decrease bone density, inhibit collagen synthesis, cause hair loss, exacerbate symptoms of depression and lower Testosterone levels.

And the worst part? In this day and age most people are under incredible stress, and that is reflected in their cortisol levels and, by extension, their health.

Benefits of Beta-Androstenetriol

The main benefit of B-AET is that it facilitates fat loss by inhibiting cortisol levels. But how does it do so? B-AET has been shown to inhibit an enzyme called 11β-HSD1 which is responsible for the production of cortisol from cortisone.

Many users (myself included), experience a drastic decrease in fat tissue around the lower belly area when B-AET is applied there.

But that is not all, by decreasing cortisol levels B-AET will not only decrease overall stress, but it will also improve immune function (let’s not forget that cortisol is immunosuppressive), it will prevent muscle loss during periods of calorie restriction, and it will have anti-inflammatory actions.

 Side-effects of Beta-Androstenetriol

Unfortunately, there is not enough data on B-AET to know what its exact side-effects are. If we just take a look at the limited anecdotal information that is available on various online forums, we will come to think that B-AET is side-effect-free.

Now, I do think that B-AET is a very safe and tolerable compound if used properly and in moderation, but we cannot forget that Cortisol is, despite its negative effects, essential for human health.

I do think that abusing something like B-AET for extended periods of time could cause one to be less effective in stressful situations, fatigue and hypotension due to chronically low cortisol levels.

However, the chances of that occurring are incredibly slim if we consider that most people who are going to be using B-AET are rational enough to use it properly and probably don’t have low cortisol levels to begin with.

How to use it

B-AET can be taken orally or applied topically. If you know anything about hormones of this kind, you are probably thinking that the topical route of administration is superior, and you would be correct.

Oral B-AET has a very poor bioavailability, making it almost worthless. Topical B-AET administration, on the other hand, is incredibly effective and can possibly have a localized effect.

B-AET is a fascinating, highly underrated compound that can help bodybuilders at any level burn stubborn fat and achieve a leaner physique (among other benefits) in a very safe way.

After being an independent researcher for all these years, he has decided to share his knowledge with the bodybuilding community through his science-based articles. His approach to enhanced bodybuilding can be summed up in the saying “less is more”, as he believes that prioritizing harm mitigation and looking for ways to maximize the positives is the key to longevity in bodybuilding.
