Also known as 7-Oxo, this prohormone is near identical to the naturally occurring DHEA – a parent hormone that occurs naturally in the human body. DHEA gets converted into androgen and estrogen. 7-Keto DHEA does not. This makes it a much better choice as a supplement. It is usually taken in regular doses to help with weight loss by inducing heat production. 7-Keto DHEA is therefore, a very simple fat loss agent that could augment your weight loss experience and help you improve your metabolic rate.
