Raspberry Ketones was made popular several years ago due to a TV personality touting them as a weight loss supplement. It is typically used for flavoring purposes.
Uses of Raspberry Ketones
To date, there are no human studies on Raspberry Ketones showing its efficacy on fat loss. A lot of the claims made on Raspberry Ketones come from a study done on rats. The rats were fed a high fat diet and according to the researchers, did not have the expected increase in body weight. While this is a start, it is far from being proven as a fat burner.
While some may bring up that Raspberry Ketones are supposed to increase adiponectin (hormone that breaks down fat), this has been debunked by a study. To make it simple, the study showed that Raspberry Ketones were not effective at raising adiponectin levels in mice.
While it won’t necessarily hurt you to take Raspberry Ketones, we at FI can’t recommend it as a fat burner.
