How Does It Work?
Both DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) and 7-keto DHEA are associated with a variety of essential human functions, most notably immune system support and memory enhancement. In the body, DHEA can convert into various metabolites, including 7-keto DHEA and steroid hormones, such as testosterone or the estrogens (estrone and estradiol). 7-keto DHEA, on the other hand, does not convert to active testosterone and/or estrogen in the body. Nor does it convert back to DHEA. In fact, this improved form of DHEA has no known adverse effects.
Research has shown that 7-keto DHEA increases thermogenic enzyme activity, which is associated with heat generation. An increase in thermogenic activity may enhance the body's basal metabolic rate, helping to promote weight loss without requiring significant alterations to caloric intake or activity levels. Additionally, 7-keto DHEA has been shown to support healthy thyroid function. The thyroid gland, which plays a permissive role in adaptive heat production, is also intricately involved in maintaining optimal metabolic rate.
An eight-week clinical trial found that supplementation with 7-keto DHEA (200 mg/day), in conjunction with diet and exercise, significantly reduced both body weight and body fat. 7-keto DHEA also supported healthy thyroid hormone (triiodothyronine or T3) levels, which may affect basal metabolic rate, further enhancing weight loss.
When combined with supportive nutrients, the effects of 7-keto DHEA can be even more pronounced. A recent placebo-controlled clinical study, examining the effectiveness of 7-Keto Lean in combination with a healthy diet and moderate exercise program, found the supplemented group lost 1.43 kg (or 3.15 lb) more than the placebo group over the course of eight weeks. On average, the 7-Keto Lean group lost a total of 2.15 kg (or 4.74 lb), whereas the placebo group, lost only 0.72 kg (1.59 lb). The body mass index (BMI), a measure of body fat based on height and weight, was also significantly decreased, confirming the weight loss was primarily due to loss of body fat rather than loss of muscle tissue.
The following chart summarizes the benefits of each of the ingredients in 7-Keto Lean:
7-keto DHEA Acetate: A safe and improved form of DHEA. Clinically shown to enhance weight loss and reduce body fat by supporting healthy thyroid function, thyroid hormone biosynthesis, and fat metabolism. Also increases thermogenic enzyme activity.
L-Tyrosine: An essential nutrient required for thyroid hormone formation.
Asparagus Extract: A potent metabolic detoxifier that supports healthy fluid balance.
Choline: A nutrient involved in many important metabolic functions, including fat transport and metabolism.
Inositol: Another nutrient which promotes the transport and metabolism of fat.
Copper: An essential trace mineral and cofactor of enzymes involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
Manganese: An essential mineral required for healthy thyroid hormone metabolism.
Iodine: Another essential nutrient found in high concentrations in the thyroid gland. Required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, which are important in regulating cellular metabolic rate.
The ingredients 7-Keto Lean work synergistically to support healthy thyroid function and enhance metabolism.† When used in conjunction with a sensible diet and regular exercise, 7-Keto Lean can accelerate the loss of body fat to promote weight loss, while maintaining muscle tissue integrity.
