|A safe market alternative to DHEA is now available to health food store consumers. Enzymatic Therapy has introduced 7-Keto™, an improved form of DHEA that does not convert to the sex hormones testosterone and estrogens. 7-Keto™ was developed by Humanetics Corporation of Minneapolis in collaboration with scientists at the University of Wisconsin. Enzymatic Therapy is one of the first companies in the world to manufacture and distribute the new supplement. The product represents a breakthrough in DHEA science. 7-keto is a natural metabolite of DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone), the most abundant hormone in the human body. Reduced levels of DHEA have been linked to the aging process including the decline in immune and memory functions. Although it is associated with many body functions, safety concerns have surfaced regarding supplementation with DHEA. The University of Wisconsin research team discovered that DHEA’s most potent benefits are actually found in one of the compounds derived from DHEA rather than in DHEA itself. The most beneficial DHEA derivative isolated by the researchers is 7-keto-dehydroepiandrosterone (7-keto DHEA). Like DHEA, 7-keto DHEA is associated with a variety of essential human functions. Unlike DHEA, 7-keto DHEA does not convert to testosterone or estrogens. Enzymatic Therapy’s 7-Keto™ provides the benefits of DHEA without the worry of increased sex hormones.
Research has shown that 7-keto DHEA is more potent than DHEA in enhancing memory, inducing the activity of various thermogenic enzymes, and strengthening the immune system. In fact, 7-Keto™ appears to enhance the immune response when the normal immune response is less than optimal. 7-Keto™ is available in bottles of 60-count capsules and each capsule contains 25 mg of 7-Keto™. Recommendations are for one capsule twice daily as an addition to the everyday diet.|
