7-KETO is a natural substance produced by the body in our adrenal glands. Scientists and physicians believe 7-KETO plays an important role in up-regulating key thermogenic enzymes in the body, thereby enhancing resting metabolic rate. It has extensive clinical evidence supporting its ability to aid in weight loss, improve metabolic rate and body mass index. Other evidence points to the positive effects that 7-KETO may have on immune and brain function.
In the body, 7-KETO DHEA is responsible for activating enzymes responsible for fatty acid and carbohydrate metabolism. The body's production of 7-KETO DHEA declines with age, which is directly correlated with a decline on metabolic rate.
