The Skinny on Rasperry Ketones

Posted on September 30, 2013 | in Raspberry Ketones | by

Bowl full of raspberriesRaspberry ketones have been the new rage in the weight loss market within the past year. They are the part of the berry that produces the fragrant berry scent. Raspberry ketones are generally made synthetically due to the high cost of extracting them from the actual berry. And don’t think you can get enough of the ketones from eating raspberries. You would have to eat 90 pounds of the berry to get 100 mg of raspberry ketones!

This weight loss supplement works partly because it is similar in structure to capsaicin and synephrine, extracts that share the same actions in reducing weight. Raspberry ketones are found to be very effective in promoting the secretion of a hormone called adioponectin. This hormone promotes the fat burning that occurs in the body. Adioponectin also helps protect against type 2 diabetes and the buildup of plaque on the vessel walls, all of which can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease. So by taking raspberry ketones, you can quite possibly keep diseases, such as strokes, at bay and maintain a healthy heart.

In a groundbreaking study, mice were fed a high-fat diet for ten weeks to see if the raspberry ketones had any effect on their adipose (fat) tissue. The group of mice given the supplement was shown to have maintained their body weight, even lost weight, though they consume a high percentage of fat in their diet. Another significant finding what the researcher found when checking their livers. The fat surrounding the liver had been reduced with the consumption of raspberry ketones. Blood work reflected lower cholesterol readings as the result. Additionally, their triglyceride levels had decreased. Because of this, there is a chance that taking the supplement would help decrease the risk of liver or heart disease.

And if that wasn’t enough, the researchers found an increased sensitivity to insulin in their test subjects. This is good news for anyone who has trouble regulating their blood sugar. If you are diabetic, you may want to see if raspberry ketones can help in getting your glucose readings under control.
(Note: monitor your blood sugar very carefully when taking raspberry ketones.)

To take raspberry ketones, one needs to take 100 mg at breakfast and 100 to 200 milligrams with lunch. They are available in pill form or in a liquid with a dropper, which is good for people with difficulty swallowing pills. There are some that are combined with other extracts or ingredients to enhance the effectiveness, such as green tea, African mango extract, and L-Carnitine. It would be best that the bottle has at least 100 mg of raspberry ketones.

People who have tried raspberry ketones say that their skin is more radiant, probably due to the antioxidants the product contains. You will find that you will feel better while using raspberry ketones and will lose weight with little effort. By exercising and watching your diet, you will get the maximum benefit from the supplement.
