7-keto (3-acetyl-7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone) is a natural by-product of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a hormone that is formed by adrenal glands. Unlike DHEA, 7-keto is not converted to steroid hormones such as testosterone and estrogen, and, therefore, does not increase the level of steroid hormones in the blood.
7-keto speeds up the metabolism and heat production and promotes weight loss. 7-keto-DHEA 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.
Potential side effects:
- Mild nausea
- Low grade fever
Potential drug interactions:
- Glucocorticoid hormones (prednisone, methylprednisolone, triamcinolone, methylprednisolone and others)
- Male (testosterone) and female (estrogen) hormone replacement therapy
- Chronic anticoagulation therapy
- Bipolar disorder
