7-Keto® is a registered trade name for the compound 3-acetyl-7- oxo DHEA, a stabilized form of 7-oxo DHEA. Once ingested, acetyl-7-oxo DHEA is cleaved to 7-oxo DHEA, a DHEA metabolite naturally found in the body. Although 7-oxo DHEA is similar to DHEA, it does not convert into estrogenic or androgenic hormones.
Supplementation with 7-Keto® may counteract the decline in 7-oxo DHEA levels that occurs during the normal aging process or with high cortisol levels. Decreased levels of 7-oxo DHEA can also be triggered by high cortisol levels, which can result from physical and mental stress as well as dieting if the caloric restriction is too severe and/or the meals are not properly spaced throughout the day.
Unlike other 7-keto DHEA supplements, our version of 7-Keto® has enhanced bioavailability due to the addition of lecithin, an emulsifier that increases its absorption in the gut. Thus 7-Keto® can be taken on an empty stomach first thing in the morning before breakfast and again 12 hours later, regardless of meal times.
7-Keto® may help to*:
-Promote weight loss without the use of stimulants
-Compensate for age-related decline in 7-keto DHEA production
-Compensate for cortisol-induced reduction of 7-keto DHEA
-Reduce tissue levels of cortisol by reducing local conversion of cortisone to cortisol
-Reduce alcohol cravings due to activity on GABA receptors
-Augment immune response in the elderly and subjects under stress
-Alleviate depression caused by chronic stress
