7-Keto Trim Review
What You Should Know
7-Keto Trim is a weight loss product from Country Life that claims to provide weight loss results three times more effective than diet and weight loss without the supplement. We found the supplement listed on the GNC website, but the actual product label is available on the manufacturer’s website. There are just three ingredients in the formula and none of the ingredients are stimulant or appetite-suppressing in nature. There are no clinical trials or scientific articles listed in the product description, so weight loss claims are not backed up – dieters must take Country Life on their word.
List of Ingredients
7-Keto or 7-Keto-DHEA as the ingredient is commonly called has been around for decades. According to medical websites, the ingredient is ineffective at promoting weight loss or muscle growth based on current medical literature. We did find reference to once clinical study that showed an increase in resting metabolic rate when 7-Keto was taken in conjunction with a controlled-calorie diet. The increase was equivalent to about 5.5%. That means if your resting metabolic rate is 1,700 calories you could burn about 100 additional calories per day taking 7-Keto. When we found the study, the literature actually reported an increase of just 1.4% when using 7-Keto alone and that accounts for a bump of just 24 calories per day. At that rate, with a consistent dietary intake, it would take one year to lose just 2.5 pounds. Acetyl-L-Carnitine and L-Tyrosine have no positive impact on weight loss or metabolic rate.
We could find no testimonials, before/after pictures or reviews of 7-Keto Trim to support weight loss claims. The supplement does not appear to even be on the radar for most dieters, which is likely associated with the poor clinical support for 7-Keto weight loss products.
- The ingredients and product label are listed on the official website.
- 7-Keto Trim can be purchased from various online health and supplement retailers.
- Clinical support for 7-Keto, in terms of weight loss, in insufficient to support supplement claims.
- None of the ingredients in the formula will increase metabolism or decrease hunger.
- No testimonials are available to support weight loss claims.
There is some light clinical evidence that 7-Keto increases resting metabolic rate when taken with as part of a reduced calorie diet. The study we found was extremely small with less than 50 participants, mostly women. We do not suggest dieters use 7-Keto Trim for weight loss.
