Healthy Origins 7-Keto DHEA Metabolite Description: High Potency Clinically Studied Vegetarian Formula Awarded 5 US Patents. 7-KETO (a trade name for 3-acetyl 7-oxo dehydroepiandrosterone or 7-oxo-DHEA) is a substance found naturally in the body and is primarily produced by the adrenal glands. 7-KETO is metabolized from DHEA and similar to DHEA, 7-KETO levels have been known to decline with advancing age. However, unlike DHEA, 7-KETO does not convert to Estrogen or Testosterone. This lack of conversion with 7-KETO may be beneficial since overproduction of these two hormones can lead to unwanted side effects.
