Raspberry ketones are directly extracted from raspberries. However, because natural supply is relatively limited, raspberry ketones are most often synthesized in a laboratory. Raspberry ketones have been used for many years to provide fragrance to various cosmetics and food products. Raspberry ketones have been self-affirmed as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) ingredients.
There have not been any human studies conducted on raspberry ketones to date, but animal studies suggest that raspberry ketones may be effective for weight loss. A 2005 Japanese animal study conducted by Morimoto et. al and a 2010 study published in Planta Med showed that raspberry ketones activate lipid metabolism and improves obesity in mice who were fed high fat diet. A 2012 animal study published in J Med Food showed that raspberry ketones may play a role in reducing fat in mice models.
While research of raspberry ketones is still ongoing and the effect of raspberry ketones on humans has not yet been confirmed, reputable health experts have deemed the compounds to be a worthy addition to one's weight loss regimen. For example, Dr. Mehmet Oz endorsed the supplement as an effective dieting aid. He recommends a dosage of approximately 100 mg per day of raspberry ketones before lunch and again at dinner, although precise levels will vary with one's personal height, weight, and other bodily conditions. Dieters should consume raspberry ketone as a dietary supplement in order to obtain a sufficient amount of the compound.
Of course, raspberry ketones alone cannot achieve all of one's weight loss goals. The supplements must be combined with proper exercise and a balanced diet, and all dieters should consult with their physician before initiating a weight loss plan. However, consumption of raspberry ketones could enhance one's success in achieving a new level of fitness and well-being.
Demand for raspberry ketone supplements is expected to rise even further as the compound’s potential benefits become more conclusive in humans and widely recognized.
