7-Keto is one of the 150 metabolites that are broken down from DHEA (Dehydreopiandrosterone), a hormone produced by the adrenal gland. 7-Keto is the metabolite believed to be most responsible for DHEA benefits.** Of interest to those pursuing healthy weight management goals, it has thermogenic properties that may optimize metabolism and encourage fat-burning for energy.** One theory suggests that the age-related decline of the metabolite triggers weight gain, and that by boosting DHEA levels we may restore peak-performing metabolism for better weight management and athletic performance.**
7-Keto is believed to start naturally declining in the body around age 30, just like its parent compound, DHEA.** Blood levels on average drop by about 50% by the time we turn 50. Supplements are often taken to restore youthful hormone levels as an anti-aging strategy.** By reversing age-related 7-Keto decline, supplementation is thought to promote youthful resting metabolic rate, thereby helping to support good body composition and healthy weight management.** 7-Keto's benefits have made it a popular ingredient in many nutritional supplements.
7-Keto supplementation is thought to become increasingly significant as we age. By replenishing this metabolite of an important "youthful" hormone, supplementation may promote hormone balance, libido, endurance, and memory.** DHEA also benefits immune system wellness.**
