Ingredient Spotlight: Dehydroabietic Acid

Aromatase (also known as estrogen synthase) is a dastardly enzyme that is responsible for the production of estrogen in the body. It does this by converting androgens (e.g. testosterone) into powerful estrogens, such as estradiol. What’s more, aromatase isn’t only active in the male sex organs, it’s also active in brain, fat, muscle, bone, and vascular tissue! Though, aromatase activity is high in the testes, much higher compared with adipose and muscle tissue.


If you’re unlucky enough to have higher than average aromatase activity in the body, this can seriously impair your ability to build muscle, lose fat, and chisel an iron physique.


The good news is that there is a way to keep this conversion in check -- aromatase inhibitors (AI).


Aromatase inhibitors are a class of compounds that directly oppose the actions of aromatase, which helps prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, simultaneously lowering estrogen and raising testosterone levels.


Dehydroabietic Acid (aka Abieta-8,11,13-trien-18-oic acid) is a powerful aromatase inhibitor that is orally bioavailable in mammals[1], and it’s also been found to support production of adiponectin, a protein that aids weight loss.


Moreover, animal studies also indicate that Dehydroabietic Acid may help improve levels of plasma glucose, insulin and triglycerides.[2] It’s even been found to help reduce certain  inflammatory markers, such as TNF-alpha and MCP-1, which are associated with obesity as well as joint pain.


Collectively, this means that dehydroabietic acid is an incredibly intriguing compound for those looking to maximize their results and support overall health and wellness.
