7-oxo DHEA (7-Keto), a naturally occurring substance in the body, is a metabolite of the adrenal hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and, like DHEA, the natural production of 7-Keto declines with age. Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies demonstrate that supplementing with 7-Keto results in a) measurable increases in resting metabolic rate, and b) measurable weight loss compared with diet and exercise alone.
