I was wondering what your opinions on 7-keto DHEA are. I read some articles on life extension and bodybuilding.com and it looked interesting, but I did not see anything about it on this site. Thanks

Here is what I read:

I have not seen any convincing evidence that 7-Keto causes weight loss.

I’m skeptical of the one human study which reported some weight loss, a study mostly of men.

I’m not against people trying it to see if it works for them.

But as with any weight loss product, if it’s going to work, you will know it right away.

If you don’t lose at least a couple pounds in the first week and at least 4 pounds in the first month, forget it. It’s not going to work. Take it back and get a refund.

Dr John Zenk did a study on 7 Keto DHEA and later marketed it under his company called Humanetics.  I tried this crappy supplement and it did not work at all (tried the Isatori 7 Keto DHEA in capsule form).  I also found out that this doctor lost his license.  The FTC challenged the claims made by several companies advertising the ingredient as a weight loss aid.

Check out Dr Michael Hirt, MD paper on 7 Keto DHEA.
