If you’re on the high fat, low carb eating regime that is the keto diet, one of your base aims will be to raise your metabolism so your can burn fat faster, and lose weight. This review looks at a supplement which aims to help that process. It is called 7-Keto DHEA Metabolite. As a metabolite, it is a product which ignites metabolism.

The manufacturer, Source Naturals, says that its supplement is designed to increase your metabolic rate through 7-Keto. This is a naturally occurring metabolite of DHEA. DHEA is the most plentiful adrenal steroid in the body. Dehydroepiandrosterone is manufactured in the adrenal gland, but is not converted to testosterone or any other sex hormone. Controlled studies have shown that as 7-Keto increases metabolic rate, it can help your weight loss goals especially if you’re already on an eating plan that promotes ketogenesis.


  • 7-oxo-DHEA Acetate -100 mg
  • microcrystalline cellulose
  • stearic acid
  • magnesium stearate

Research has shown that 7-Keto induces thermogenesis, which means that the body burns fats at a higher rate, and also faster. 7-Keto is not converted to estrogens or androgens, so there is no fear of this side effect occurring. As an exogenous ketone,  it should synthesize well with the naturally occuring ketones as a result of the ketogenic diet and other factors. The overall fat-burning process should result in nett weight loss, but is meant to go hand-in-hand with the keto diet and exercise and not replace it.


The supplement is in tablet form. Take 4 tablets per day. Take two, twice a day, preferably with meals and water. There are both 50 mg tablets and 100 mg tablets available.

Our Source Naturals 7-Keto DHEA Metabolite Review – Conclusion

The product is vegetarian safe. 7-Keto is backed by preliminary research which does suggest that indeed it can increase the rate at which your body burns fat. This should result in you being able to see centimeters off your waistline as well as weight loss. Use it to kickstart your metabolism into ketosis or if you’re already on the ketogenic diet, stay the course and increase your exercise levels to see the maximum benefits. This product also has anti-aging benefits.

This is an exogenous ketone and as such is synthetic. If you are looking for an all-natural product, this is not the one for you. The manufacturer does not state how long before you can expect results. The matter is compounded by the fact that despite the hype and evidence of pre-trial success in relation to the metabolite, the manufacturer shows no real confidence in its product by way of a clear guarantee. You may therefore be embarking on a risky purchase.
