7-KETO (3-acetyl-7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone) is a naturally occurring metabolite (intermediates and products of metabolism) of DHEA (a hormone, full name is “dehydroepiandrosterone”. DHEA is an adrenal steroid, a precursor of sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone. 

7-Keto is a natural metabolite of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) which was recently identified. It is more effective than DHEA because it doesn’t breakdown into testosterone or estrogen in the body. This makes it safer too.

DHEA was originally seen as a miracle drug. But, then people started to find out about the side-effects. DHEA breaks down into the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen. These have been linked to cancer. Certain cancers thrive in the presence of these hormones. So, scientists did research to develop a compound which does not breakdown into these hormones. This is how we got 7-Keto which is safer and more effective than DHEA.

In our bodies, as we grow older, the production of the important steroidal hormone, DHEA declines. This is linked to aging and especially to weight gain that occurs in our middle age and beyond.

7-Keto replaces this missing DHEA, thus allowing the prevention and reversal of this aging effect. It helps people lose weight and maintain a healthy body weight.

In studies, 7-Keto has been shown to be more effective than DHEA at promoting thermogenesis (burning calories). People who used 7-Keto along with dieting and exercise, lost more weight than people who were given a placebo.
