In weight loss, 7 Keto may lower the body's weight setpoint, making it easier to maintain weight loss. In the area of immune stimulation, it boosts the production of antibodies and cytokines.

7-Keto is said to increase enthusiasm, energy, stamina, and concentration, strengthen the immune system, enhance memory, enhance weight loss and fat reduction and extend life expectancy. 7-Keto helps people recapture the positive energy of youth, helps focus and enhances the enjoyment of life. It has been found to increase metabolism and thermogenesis (the creation of energy through the burning of glucose or fat), helping increase energy levels and aiding weight loss. It enhances the function of the immune system. Helping prevent susceptibility to infection and enhancing the body's natural defences against cancer cells, viruses, bacteria, parasites, allergens etc. Research also shows that 7-Keto has the potential to enhance memory, ease depression, increase energy production and reduce the aging effects of cortisol on the body.
Take one capsule daily with a meal.
DHEA is back in a safe new natural metabolite form that is acceptable to the Ministry of Health. 7Keto is more potent and proven safe because it is not able to be converted to the sex hormones. Ronald Zenk, President and CEO of Humanetics Corp, Maker of 7-Keto, a derivative of DHEA, said their objective is to "follow the pattern from the pharmaceutical industry". They have been able to create a patented dietary supplement by isolating the biologically active components in a nutrient - in this case DHEA - and eliminating its negative side effects. DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a pre-hormone, secreted by the adrenal glands, that is converted into a number of hormones including testosterone, progesterone and oestrogens. Dr Henry Lardy, a prominent researcher at the University of Wisconsin, was not about to let the DHEA story end there. After 10 years of research on various derivatives of conventional DHEA, Dr Lardy discovered 7-Keto, a metabolite of DHEA which is also found naturally in the body, is more potent than DHEA in ameliorating the effects of aging on many body functions. Several safety studies show that 7-Keto does not convert into the sex hormones, testosterone and oestrogen. Therefore it allows people to safely recapture the "positive energy" associated with youth, such as increases enthusiasm, stamina, concentration, focus and enjoyment of life - without the concerns of side effects. DHEA levels diminish in the body as we age. Research has linked declining levels of DHEA to age related issues including weight gain, loss of energy, depression, reduction in immune function, memory loss, tissue repair and ageing. 7-Keto may also help normalise thyroid function. Researchers believe that, because of the effect on so many body functions, any drop in its levels may be closely linked with many health issues.
Each 1 capsule contains 7 Keto ( 3-acetoxy-androst-5-ene-7, 17- dione) 75mg. Other ingredients: Cellulose (plant fibre) chickweed leaf extract, magnesium stearate (vegetable), gelatin and water.
Keep out of the reach of children. Those with hyperthyroidism should consult their healthcare professional prior to using 7 Keto. We suggest only taking supplements to increase DHEA, if you have had a test to see whether you are low in this or not.
