Source Naturals - 7-Keto DHEA Metabolite 50 mg. - 60 Tablets
Source Naturals 7-Keto DHEA Metabolite contains a daily source of DHEA, the most abundant steroid in the blood of adult humans, which peaks in early adulthood and declines with age. Animal research indicates that 7-Keto, a natural metabolite of DHEA, is a more active inducer of thermogenic enzymes than DHEA. Research on humans has shown that supplementation with 7-Keto is well tolerated. It is not converted to estrogens or androgens, a point of concern for many people.
Source Naturals 7-Keto DHEA Metabolite Many Benefits
DHEA plays a role in controlling age-related increases in blood glucose and insulin resistance, a crucial factor in maintaining youthful tissues in the circulator y system. Elderly patients with cognitive difficulties had significantly lower blood levels of DHEA than control groups. Supplemental DHEA was shown to increase physical and psychological well-being in men and women, including better sleep and ability to handle stress. DHEA's diverse biological activities may result from its anti-cortisol action. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands in response to stress, but our stress-inducing culture is causing a vast overload of cortisol in many people. This excess cortisol can damage cells and tissues, contributing to the aging process.
Source Naturals 7-Keto DHEA addresses the following body systems
At any moment, millions of biochemical reactions are taking place in or around our nearly 100 trillion cells. To function at high levels of health, our metabolism is constantly binding molecules together and breaking them apart. In a way, our health is a function of the ease, speed, and coordination of these myriad reactions, processes named methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation, and sulfation. Hormones are messengers that tell the body to begin its various physiological activities, such as growth or sexual development. Hormones are produced in our glands and are often triggered by the brain. They are part of the intricate mechanism that makes us humans with unique personalities.
Through phospholipids such as omega-3 or omega-6 in the membrane of the cell, the hormones transfer important messages to the nucleus of the cell where the DNA produces the proteins and enzymes needed to carry out the brain's desires. With age, as metabolism slows, can come a loss of effective function, which in turn can lead to a multitude of problems associated with aging. By proactively supporting metabolic and hormonal processes you can maintain youthful activity within your body.
During the Plague of the 14th century, one-third of the population of Europe died. The question is: why did the others live, even though they were also exposed to the Yersinia pestis bacteria? The answer may be the strength and responsiveness of their immune systems. The immune system is like an intelligent second brain with the unique ability to identify foreign compounds and to quickly produce the specific defenses needed to combat harmful invaders and protect us. The immune system uses a wide variety of cells and biochemicals located primarily in the blood stream and the gastrointestinal tract, such as T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, and Natural Killer cells. We can significantly strengthen and improve the functionality of the immune system through nutrition, supplements and lifestyle modifications.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual's potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry's #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals' comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today's Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
