7-Keto: “Belly blasters in a bottle”?


Feeling a little sluggish? Got a “spare tire” around your mid-section? You aren’t alone. And if you’re in the over-40 crowd, you’ve probably noticed your metabolism slowing down too.  This month we’re seeing a lot more interest and inquiries on the dietary supplement 7-Keto, after TV personality Doctor Oz featured the product in a segment on “belly-blasting supplements.”

Minneapolis-based Humanetics Corp (supplement ingredient manufacturer) has developed the patented supplement featured on the program, and it looks as though the company is getting a lot of publicity and increased revenue from the exposure. 7-Keto is a natural byproduct of DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), a hormone involved in fat metabolism. Published trials support 7-Keto’s ability to reduce body weight and visceral fat.  7-keto DHEA may also enhance immune function, decrease muscle loss, decrease stress, increase metabolic rate and accelerate weight loss in healthy adults.

“7-Keto is a natural byproduct of a hormone in our bodies that helps to keep us young,” said Dr. Oz. “As we age, the level of 7-Keto drops, slowing down our metabolism. The result: weight gain. But studies show that a 7-Keto supplement can rev up your metabolism to help you lose that fat off your belly. And the best part: it’s extremely safe.”

Dr. Oz then referenced a study in which patients took 200 mg of 7-Keto daily for two months to return their metabolism to normal rates. 7-keto should be taken in lowest dose that is appropriate for you.

    How long do you have to continue taking this supplement to keep your metabolism revved up?

      As with other supplements and drugs; results will vary. Generally a supplement such as this will need to be taken 4-8 week before results would be noticeable.

        Thanks, Theresa, just wondering though if after results are noticed, would the supplement have to be taken thereafter to continue with those results?

          If your diet, metabolism and exercise program supported maintaining the body weight and leaner muscle mass achieved, the answer would be no. Here’s hoping!

    I tried this. My forehead broke out in terrible acne. When I stopped taking it, the acne went away. Any idea why?

    • Theresa Groskopp April 23, 2012 at 5:16 pm #

      Not sure why that would be Trish! It is possible you may be sensitive or allergic to one of the other ingredients in the 7-Keto you tried.

    How long can you take 7-Keto for? I heard that it may elevate liver enzymes, is that a bad thing?

    • Theresa Groskopp November 20, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

      The length of time taking 7-keto is going to depend on the individual.
      In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study, subjects given 200 mg of 7-keto reduced body weight more significantly compared with a placebo while maintaining a diet and exercise regimen. No significant changes in blood glucose, hormonal
      levels, liver enzymes or renal function were experienced and no adverse side effects were reported. In another
      double-blind, placebo-controlled study, after 8 weeks subjects on an exercise program and healthful diet lost
      significantly more weight compared with placebo. The natural metabolite, 7-Keto, was again well tolerated and
      no significant adverse effects were reported. Additional studies indicate that 7-Keto cannot convert into other
      steroid hormones in the body and does not affect estrogen, testosterone or progesterone levels in the body.
