7-Keto® DHEA Gold™
7-Keto is a natural metabolite that is produced in the body from DHEA. Scientists and physicians believe 7-Keto plays an important role in up-regulating key thermogenic enzymes in the body, thereby supporting enhanced resting metabolic rate. As we age, our natural production of this metabolite declines and this decline is most dramatic after the age of 30. By age 40, we produce only half as much 7-Keto as we did at age 20. This decline continues throughout the rest of our lives, making supplementation necessary.

7-Keto® DHEA Gold™ Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the difference between 7-Keto and DHEA?
7-Keto is a natural metabolite that is produced in the body from DHEA. Research scientists at the University of Wisconsin isolated the 7-oxo metabolite of DHEA and developed a method to produce it. Like DHEA, the levels of 7-Keto decline with age. 7-Keto is chemically distinct from DHEA and they are two completely different chemical entities. After 7-Keto is derived from DHEA, it cannot convert back to DHEA in the body. The chief difference between 7-Keto and DHEA is that 7-Keto cannot convert to other steroid hormones in the body.
Is 7-Keto a hormone?
No, 7-Keto is not a hormone. Hormones are chemical substances produced by the body that have a specific regulatory effect on the activity of a certain organ; usually through the interaction of the hormone with a specific receptor. Our research reveals that 7-Keto has no known receptor in the human body and no specific regulatory function.
Why do I need to take 7-Keto® if my body makes it naturally?
As we age our natural production of this metabolite declines. This decline is most dramatic after the age of 30. By age 40, we produce only half as much 7-Keto as we did at age 20. This decline continues throughout the rest of our lives.
Where does 7-Keto come from?
7-Keto is made from plant sources. It is manufactured to a very high level of purity to look exactly like the 7-Keto your body produces.
Is 7-Keto® derived from animal sources?
No, it is made from plant sources and suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
Is 7-Keto® natural?
We call 7-Keto “the most natural” of natural products. This is because it is naturally found in everyone’s body. By taking 7-Keto®, you are simply putting back something that declines as we age.
When is the best time of day to take 7-Keto®?
7-Keto® is best taken in divided doses two times daily about 8 hours apart. 7-Keto® may be taken with or without a meal.
Does 7-Keto® contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of the 7-Keto® product contains some non-GMO, gluten-free Rice Concentrate. Because natural extracts can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness) and particle size, it is sometimes necessary to add Rice Flour during the manufacturing process to help ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.
Is 7-Keto® Gold™ free of allergens and GMOs?
7-Keto® Gold™ is verified free of wheat, peanut, soy, shellfish, egg, and milk by an independent, third-party lab. The product is also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™.
Is 7-Keto® Gold™ suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
7-Keto® Gold™ does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Does 7-Keto® contain any stimulants like ephedra?
No. 7-Keto® is a very purified single molecular compound that itself has no cardiac or central nervous system stimulating characteristics. There is no ephedra or ephedrine in 7-Keto®. In our clinical studies, no adverse events related to stimulating side effects were reported. In fact, despite having been on the market to consumers for 4 years and with over 180 million doses sold, there have been no reports of stimulating side effects from taking 7-Keto®.
Does 7-Keto® have any side effects? Is 7-Keto® safe?
7-Keto® does not have any known side effects. It has been put through very rigorous testing to insure that it is safe. The safety testing was presented to the Food and Drug Administration for their review before this product was offered to the public. In our clinical studies there have been no reports of serious adverse events and since being on the market in 1998, there have been no reports of serious adverse events by consumers. However, everyone is unique and certain individuals react differently to the same substance.
Does 7-Keto® have any drug or supplement interactions?
7-Keto® does not have any known interactions with other diet supplements or weight loss aids. Because 7-Keto® is structurally very similar to DHEA, it may have the ability to inhibit platelet aggregation (similar to Aspirin) and caution should be used if you are taking blood thinners like Coumadin™. If you are currently taking or plan to take any OTC or prescription medication(s) for a health condition, please consult your healthcare provider before beginning supplementation of 7-Keto®.
