No, I do not think so. What’re they used for? I asked. A Physician on Television said they could help me shed weight, the consumer replied. Interesting. That day I’d about five more women ask me for Raspberry Ketones. I mean, if there was a pill that could really burn off fat and help you shed weight, wouldn’t we’ve learned about it by now? it’d be all over the news. But wait. Raspberry Ketones are all over the news nowadays, but not necessarily for any numerous reasons.
This article from Today’s Dietitian gives a good overview of Raspberry Ketones, what they’re, how they’re supposed to work, and the research which has been done on the supplement. This article from the LA Times is also a quite intriguing read. Here’s a summary of the two articles, as well as my thoughts on Raspberry Ketones, – Not only are Raspberry Ketones touted as a fat burner due to their capsaisin, but they’re also thought to indirectly help with weight reduction due to their capability to increase adiponectin circulation – There have been zero human trials with Raspberry Ketones. They’ve all been done with mice. We’re not mice. Whilst the research has been hopeful, Id like to see some evidence that it may work in humans, wouldn’t you?
Raspberry Ketones could have some interactions with certain drugs, and can have stimulant like effects. Use with caution. Most Raspberry Ketone products available on the market aren’t just Raspberry Ketones, but instead they’re a combination of several other weight reduction compounds and supplements. Make sure to read the label and be aware of what you’re taking. And definitely inform your doctor. If you wish to try Raspberry Ketones, that’s fine, but do not expect miracles. You still need to exercise and eat a well balance diet. Even The Physician on Television can agree with that! – Ill be back for another post on this supplement after there are several human trials. Who knows, maybe it does work, but until I see human studies I do not feel right recommending it to clients. QUESTION: Have you ever tried Raspberry Ketones? Do you know anyone who has? If so, did they work?
