Humanetics Corporation’s 7-Keto(TM) is Key Ingredient in New Product Line from Life Extension

Eden Prairie, MN – Life Extension recently introduced three new products containing 7-Keto™, a branded ingredient from Humanetics Corporation of Minnesota. The products include 7-Keto™ in 25mg and 100mg dosage and DHEA Complete.

7-Keto™ (3-acetyl-7-oxo dehydroepiandrosterone) is a naturally occurring metabolite of DHEA and like DHEA, levels of 7-Keto in humans peak at age 20 and by age 50, decline by nearly 50%. In addition to weight gain, this decline in 7-Keto levels has been linked to many common negative effects of aging such as a reduced immune function, loss of memory and a general lack of energy.

Beyond its usefulness as a general anti-aging product, 7-Keto has been found to be particularly effective in the area of weight loss. 7-Keto is a non-stimulant, thermogenic agent that increases metabolism and promotes healthy weight loss. Two independently conducted clinical trials support the effectiveness of 7-Keto for weight loss. Both trials were double-blinded and placebo-controlled, and have been published in peer-reviewed journals. 7-Keto was shown to promote 3 times more weight and fat loss then diet and exercise alone

“We’re always pleased when a company like Life Extension incorporates 7-Keto into their product line,” says Scott Steil, VP of Sales & Marketing, Humanetics Corporation. “Partnering with companies like Life Extension, that use solid science to drive their product development process, ultimately provides consumers with a safe, efficacious product that will help them achieve their goals. Consumers appreciate the fact that 7-Keto is a natural approach to weight loss and they are simply replacing a substance which time and age have reduced. The fact that 7-Keto does not contain any stimulants and still activates the thermogenic process is unique and gives consumers very positive results as well as peace of mind that it is safe.
