DHEA is a fat soluble, steroid hormone and a derivative of cholesterol produced by the
adrenal glands and in small amounts in the ovaries/testes, the brain and various other
peripheral tissues, such as the skin. DHEA has been touted as the youth hormone.
7 Keto DHEA is a down-stream metabolite of DHEA. This means that DHEA must be
converted to 7 Keto DHEA by the liver and kidneys. Many patients use 7 Keto DHEA to
improve energy levels, increase lean muscle tone, lessen hot flashes, and improve libido. 7 Keto DHEA is a safer alternative to DHEA because it cannot be converted into testosterone and does not change the sex hormone ratios.
Dosage: Take one tablet per day or as recommended by your health care practitioner.
Contraindications: Do not take during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
