7-keto-DHEA is produced naturally in your body from dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a hormone that comes from the adrenal glands located on top of each of your kidneys.
7-keto-DHEA does not actively interact with the sex hormones. Therefore, when taken as an oral supplement, it does not increase the amount of hormones in your blood.
7-keto-DHEA promotes weight loss by speeding up the body’s metabolism and converting more energy to heat instead of storing it as fat. It is also used to improve lean body mass and build muscle, increase the activity of the thyroid gland, boost the immune system, enhance memory, and slow aging.
