I imagine the words ‘raspberry ketone’ are familiar to you. Perhaps you’ve heard of them but aren’t sure what they are good for. Or maybe you are already taking, and benefiting from, them. If you are looking for a little help in your weight-loss efforts, raspberry ketones could be just what you need. Raspberry ketones help to increase metabolism, helping your body burn fat faster. Here is my raspberry ketone review.
Raspberry ketone is the natural, primary aroma compound of red raspberries. It has been shown to regulate adiponectin, a hormone used by the body to regulate metabolism. Raspberry ketone causes an increase in the secretion of adiponectin, and a higher level of adiponectin is associated with less stored fat. An increase in adiponectin may also increase insulin sensitivity, helping with insulin resistance in obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
The usual recommended dose is 100mg per day. Taking 200mg per day, either at once or split into 2 servings, is also very common and possibly more effective. It would take eating 90 lbs of raspberries to get the equivalent of 100mg of raspberry ketones!
When I started taking raspberry ketones I didn’t have much weight to lose but I wanted to see if it would have some effect anyway. I still ended up losing 3 lbs in a month. Raspberry ketones also helped increase my lean body mass making me feel and look leaner. I definitely had more energy during the month. Unexpectedly, I was warmer, especially my hands and feet. This must be related to the effect that raspberry ketones have on norepinephrine.
Raspberry ketones aren’t a miracle pill, but based on my experience I’d say it would help in your journey of weight loss. I would expect that someone with more weight to lose may even see more dramatic results. Maximize the results by combining raspberry ketones, regular exercise, and a healthful, well-balanced diet. Benefits will most likely be seen in the first 5 days, and the longer you commit the bigger the results. Raspberry ketones also contain antioxidants that help fight free radicals and anti-aging. Though no studies have been conducted on human subjects, raspberry ketones are healthy and have no side effects which make them worth experimenting with for yourself. You could only have positive results!
