7-Keto-DHEA is a natural steroid produced by the metabolism of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). It is a good choice for people who feel they would benefit from DHEA supplementation, but are concerned about the side effects. A major advantage of using 7-Keto is that, unlike DHEA, 7-Keto is not converted into other steroid hormones like testosterone or estrogen, both of which may be detrimental in excess.
7-Keto DHEA has been shown to increase the resting metabolic rate of overweight adults. It may enhance weight-loss programs by safely increasing metabolism and thermogenesis; improving fat loss, increasing lean body mass and building muscle; and helping to maintain healthy body weight.
Our bodies produce less DHEA (and its related hormones) as we get older. That is one reason why 7-Keto may help reduce the effects of aging. Other benefits of 7-Keto DHEA may include improved memory as well as increased thyroid and immune function.
In addition to 7-Keto, LeanGels™ also contain antioxidants and other ingredients as well:

- Green Tea — Green tea is a rich source of theanine and catechins. It increases thermogenesis and can improve blood flow and lower cholesterol. It may have a beneficial a effect on blood pressure and anxiety. It also can be helpful for improving brain function and blood sugar levels.
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine — This amino acid is produced in our bodies and is used for cellular metabolism and energy production. It enhances blood flow and can be useful for male infertility, neuropathy and improving memory.
