7-Keto is an improved non-androgenic form of DHEA. 7-Keto DHEA is a
more potent form of DHEA (dehydro-epiandrosterone) that may improve lean body
mass and enhance thermogenesis.*
The groundbreaking new micronutrient 7-Keto, a patented
compound which, by activating thermogenic enzymes, has been shown to safely
increase the basal metabolic rate and thus "burn" calories more
rapidly and continually throughout the day, even while resting, as well as
inhibit the storage of fat within the body.*
What is 7-Keto DHEA?
DHEA is the most prevalent hormone in the human body, but as we age, levels of
this important hormone decline. Some scientists believe this reduction in DHEA
levels relates directly to the decrease in physical and athletic performance
many people experience as they get older.*
7-Keto DHEA is a derivative of DHEA, however, the main difference is it does
not convert into the sex steroids, Testosterone, and Estrogen. Instead, it
allows people over 40 to safely recapture the "positive energy" and
physical vitality associated with youth.*
What can 7-Keto DHEA do for me?
Many people notice that as they approach mid-life, it starts to become harder
to shed those excess pounds. Research has shown 7-Keto DHEA increases
thermogenic enzyme activity (the conversion of fat to energy), which can help
increase metabolic performance.*
7-Keto DHEA also supports healthy thyroid function. In an
eight-week clinical trial, a group taking 7-Keto DHEA significantly reduced
both body weight and body fat compared to a placebo-controlled group. They also
had three times the weight and fat loss of people in the other group. These
participants lost an average of 3.76 pounds at the end of four weeks and 6.34
pounds at the end of eight weeks, making a total loss of 1.8% body fat.*
Many people who take 7-Keto DHEA report that since taking the
supplement, they feel re-energized and full of life.*
7- Keto DHEA may also raise levels of energy, endurance, limb
power, strength and agility.*
There is some evidence that regular supplementation with
7-Keto DHEA can help improve sexual function and performance.*

Fountain of Youth? And it turns out that the Fountain
of Youth isn’t really a fountain – it’s a biological compound produced in our
own bodies. This compound is extremely important for the growth and development
of the human body, and, as the body’s production of this substance decreases
with age, the signs of aging begin to appear – weight gain, wrinkled skin, loss
of muscle, loss of cognitive function, and loss of libido.*
This biological Fountain of Youth was discovered by Dr. Henry Lardy and
associates at the Institute for Enzyme Research at the University of Wisconsin.
It’s called 7-Keto™, a metabolite of a hormone produced by the adrenal glands
called DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone). Research on 7-Keto™ indicates that it may
work through a number of pathways to combat the signs of aging. Helping the
body maintain a healthy weight as we age greatly improves overall health and
longevity and is one of the strongest benefits discovered for 7-Keto™ to date.*
Unfortunately, because 7-Keto™ is a metabolite of DHEA, whose levels decline as
we age, so too does this wonderful, natural bio-nutrient. Scientists originally
looked to DHEA for improved cardiovascular vitality and strengthened immune
and brain function. Researchers believed that declining DHEA so profoundly
impacted our bodies that it could be partly responsible for the effects of
aging. They hypothesized that supplementation with DHEA could sustain hormone
levels and stave off many of the degenerative changes we collectively call
aging. But there was a catch. Since DHEA is converted into sex hormones, people
taking supplemental DHEA would sometimes experience the frightening, unwanted
side effects associated with hormone supplementation.*
In 1989, Dr. Lardy and his colleagues set out to solve the mystery of
eliminating DHEA’s side effects by examining all of the constituents that make
up DHEA. Ten long years of research unearthed hundreds of DHEA derivatives,
which were developed and tested continuously, until one derivative rose above
all the others – a metabolite that was incredibly bio-active and far more
promising than any other substance they’d tested. That metabolite is 7-Keto™.
7-Keto™ outperformed DHEA and other metabolites in immune modulation, memory
enhancement, and thermogenesis and, more importantly, without any adverse side
The most significant benefit of 7-Keto™ supplementation is its ability to
support healthy body weight. Obesity is a major contributing factor in a number
of serious medical conditions. A recent study assessed the effectiveness of
7-Keto™ on weight loss and body fat loss. Participants were divided into two
groups; one group received 100mg of 7-Keto™ twice daily and the other a
placebo. Both groups exercised three times per week. At the end of the study,
researchers noted a statistically significant reduction in body weight and body
fat only in the 7-Keto™ group. Researchers concluded that 7-Keto™ was three
times more effective than diet and exercise alone in promoting weight and fat
Preliminary research also indicates that 7-Keto™ may support healthy immune and
nervous systems. One study measured the effects of 7-Keto™ on memory function.
Subjects were given a single dose of a substance that inhibits nerve cell
communication and causes short-term memory loss. Afterwards, subjects were given
a single dose of 7-Keto™. Results showed that 7-Keto completely reversed the
memory impairment, suggesting that 7-Keto™ supports memory retention.
Another study gauged 7-Keto™’s ability to support immune system function.
Interleukin 2 (IL2) is a substance produced by T lymphocytes that causes an
increase of disease-fighting white blood cells. White blood cells were taken
from healthy volunteers and introduced into a solution that contained 7-Keto™
for 24 hours. When the cultures were tested for heightened IL2 production.
7-Keto™ was shown to augment IL2 production by a statistically significant 68%.
Our 7-Keto™ is a well-researched and patented form of this amazing product that’s
supplied by the Humanetics Corporation. Humanetics 7-Keto™ has been proven safe
and well-tolerated in doses up to 200mg. Research is clear; the rate at which
we age can be influenced by the diet and lifestyle choices we make. One very
smart choice would clearly be adding LifeSource’s 7-Keto™ to your diet.
