What is 7-Keto?
"Lose 3 times more fat than dieting or exercise alone" We've all seen this or similar weight loss headlines before and wonder whether this is really possible. Is this just another ad or marketing trick? Well, maybe not!
What is 7-Keto?
7-Keto (3-acetyl-7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone) is actually a natural substance which our body produces. The body produces less as we grow older and this causes the metabolism to slow down. Also known as 7-Keto, made from plant sources, helps replace what the body has lost over time. By doing this, the metabolism increases and makes weight loss possible again.
What research has been done?
A double-blind trial was conducted where all the participants had to exercise for 45 minutes three times per week. They all had to have the same calorie intake per day. Each participant was given either 100mg of 7-Keto or a placebo twice daily. After 8 weeks, the participants on 7-Keto had lost significantly more weight than those on the placebo - that is, diet and exercise alone.
What about these claims being made?
The ingredient is relatively new and has already been granted 5 US patents. In the US it is the only ingredient that permits the company to make the claim:
"Lose 3 times more fat than dieting or exercise alone".
It is apparently the only product which has been clinically proven to increase your RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) whilst you are dieting.
How to use 7-Keto?
Most supplement companies tend to suggest 25-50 mg per day. In recent studies, however, taking 100mg 7-Keto twice a day (a total of 200mg per day) was found to work more effectively. Thus, using 100-200mg daily could have more positive effects.
How can I be sure that I get the genuine product?
As with most products, one has to be aware that some counterfeit products are being sold as "the real thing"! 7-Keto is a patented product and therefore if it doesn't have the US patent number 5,296,481 (for weight loss) on the label, it is more than likely a counterfeit! Take care to buy the real thing!
A reminder of the key features of 7-Keto:
It replaces natural body 7-Ketos that tend to get less as one gets older.
It speeds up weight loss despite not using any stimulants
80-90% of weight loss is from actual loss of fat.
7-Keto has been awarded a US patent for weight loss
When used as directed, it is a safe product
7-Keto™ has been proven a remarkably effective weight-loss aid. Study particpants who combined 7-Keto™ with a healthy diet and exercise, lost an average of one pound per week while the placebo group lost less than one-forth of a pound per week. Weight-loss was due to a loss of body fat - not water weight of muscle tissue.
How 7-Keto can work for you?
You could lose 3 times more weight than dieting and exercise alone.
It can be used day and night without the effect of stimulants (because it doesn't have any) - so no jitters or insomnia!
It enables long term weight loss from reduced amounts of body fat.
Because scientific studies have been done (and are always ongoing) and the results are available (at least 5 independent studies), you can use it with confidence
You can be confident that the ingredients are all natural.
So then, all of us want to get rid of fat that really does nothing for our looks and stops us from getting those nice clothes. It would appear that 7-Keto will help you get rid of this unsightly fat and lose weight faster!
Are there any risks?
Being overweight or obese in itself puts one at a greater risk of developing serious health problems eg heart problems, diabetes, etc. The type of fat that is of much concern is "visceral fat" - also known as invisible fat as it surrounds our internal organs.
It goes without saying that this can lead to serious problems health-wise. However, when starting any new diet plan, medication or supplement, it is very important to consult your regular doctor or healthcare professional who knows you and will be able to support you through your weight loss program.
