7-KETO DHEA is a versatile, patented DHEA metabolite providing metabolic, immune and memory support without converting to the sex hormones testosterone or estrogen. 7-KETO™ DHEA, a safe and natural metabolite of DHEA,was the subject of research for over a decade at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Of over 150 DHEA compounds tested, 7-KETO proved to be the most promising form. Researchers discovered that 7-KETO does not convert to testosterone or estrogen and supports various physiological processes. 7-KETO DHEA is also known as DHEA-Acetate-7-one or 3-acetoxy-androst-5-ene-7,17-dione. 7-KETO is made from pharmaceutical grade DHEA. DHEA is produced when diosgenin is extracted from wild yam and modified in a laboratory process to achieve the final structure. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
