raspberry ketone
If you need to lose weight, you are not alone. More than a third of Americans are overweight, and another third are obese.Only 30% of people are now at a healthy weight… being overweight has become the new “normal.” The problem is, conventional weight loss methods are so difficult that 85% of people fail in the long run. However… there are many products out there that are claimed to make things easier. These are herbs, shakes and pills that are supposed to help you burn fat or reduce your appetite.
Among the most popular ones is a supplement called Raspberry ketones.Raspberry ketones are claimed to cause the fat within cells to be broken down more effectively, helping the body burn fat faster. They are also claimed to increase levels of adiponectin, a hormone that helps to regulate metabolism. This article reviews the current scientific research behind raspberry ketone supplements and whether they are actually worth considering.
What are Raspberry Ketones?
Raspberry ketone is a natural substance that gives red raspberries their powerful aroma. This substance is also found in small amounts in blackberries, cranberries and kiwis.It has a long history of use in cosmetics and has been added to soft drinks, ice cream and other processed foods as a flavorant. Actually… most people are already eating small amounts of raspberry ketones, either from the fruits themselves or because of their popularity as a flavorant.
Only recently did they became popular as a weight loss supplement.
Even though the word “raspberry” may appeal to people, the supplement is actually NOT derived from raspberries. Extracting raspberry ketones from raspberries is insanely expensive, because you need 90 pounds (41 kg) of raspberries to get the amount needed for a single dose!
In fact, a kilogram (2.2 pounds) of whole raspberries only contains 1-4 mg of raspberry ketones. That’s 0.0001-0.0004% of the total weight. The raspberry ketones you find in supplements are synthetically made via an industrial process and are not natural.
Another reason for the appeal of this product is the word “ketone” – which associates it with low-carbohydrate diets, which force the body to burn fat and elevate blood levels of “ketones.” However, raspberry ketones have absolutely nothing to do with low-carb diets and will not have the same effects on your body.
What is the Recommended Dosage?
Raspberry ketone is a great weight loss supplement that promises to deliver visible results in as little as two weeks. Understanding proper dosage is essential in ensuring that you get the most out of this wonderful supplement.

Do Raspberry Ketones Have Any Other Benefits?
One study has shown that raspberry ketones can have cosmetic benefits.
When administered topically, as part of a cream, it has been shown to increase hair growth in people with hair loss, as well as improve skin elasticity in healthy women.
However, this study was small and had a number of flaws, so it should not be used as evidence of anything.
