7-Ketodehydroepiandrosterone (7-Keto-DHEA) , also known as 7-Oxoprasterone,  is a metabolite of the adrenal hormone Dehydroepiandrosteronen (DHEA). 3-Acetyl-7-Oxo-Dehydroepiandrosterone, or 7-Keto, is a naturally occurring byproduct of DHEA that is produced in the adrenal glands, brain and skin. There are about 150 DHEA metabolites, and 7-keto seems to be one of the most valuable among them. One of the most important of these is 7-Keto DHEA (commonly referred to as 7-Keto), a hormone metabolite that can safely boost immune function and help reduce body fat. Unlike DHEA, however, 7-Keto does not convert to estrogen and testosterone. Additionally, 7-Keto DHEA may enhance immune function, decrease muscle loss, decrease stress, increase metabolic rate (Help you lose the fat in your belly) and accelerate weight loss in healthy adults.  DHEA helps to retard the effects of aging and promotes enhanced longevity, exerting a multitude of effects through its conversion to some 150 metabolites, each with unique actions within the body.  A study published in Current Therapeutic Research revealed just how effective 7-Keto  is in inducing fat loss. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 30 overweight adults (28 women and 2 men) were divided into two groups. The researchers found that the 7-Keto group lost a significant amount of body weight compared to the placebo group—6.3 versus 2.1 pounds. The 7-Keto group also lost a greater percentage of body fat compared to the placebo group—1.8% versus 0.57%.13 Compared to the placebo group, the 7-Keto group saw a significant increase in thyroid hormone activity that targets fat- burning genes in the mitochondria and adipose tissue. No adverse effects were reported. The results show that 7-Keto can significantly and safely reduce body weight and body fat when combined with exercise and a reduced-calorie diet. This is due to the greatly increased levels of fat-burning enzymes in the liver as well as the elevation of thyroid hormone. These beneficial changes are known to boost basal metabolic rate, making it easier to shed excess pounds. Supplementation with 7-Keto can therefore help reverse the decline in metabolic rate that makes it so easy to put on weight as we age. Unlike caffeine and ephedrine, 7-Keto does not have a central nervous system stimulating effect caused by nor-adrenalin release, nor does 7-Keto increase heart rate or blood pressure.  

WHY 7-Keto WORKS: 
As we age the level of 7-Keto drops slowing down our metabolism resulting in weight gain. As we get into our 30’s, 40’s and 50’s our body makes less and less 7-Keto. Using 100mg one to two times a day, 7-Keto can improve immune function, as well as an increase in immune helper cells, increased white blood cells and decreased blood pressure.
