I have been asked by many about natural compounds that can be used as a fat burner. One topic that has come up a lot recently due to media buzz is raspberry ketones. A Raspberry Ketone is an aroma compound from red raspberries. There was a study on mice that showed raspberry ketones helped prevent mice from putting on weight due to a high fat diet. There are many studies in Asia that showed signs of fat burning and increased insulin sensitivity. However, there has been no studies that showed this same effect in humans. This did not stop the media and buzz that was created in the weight loss industry after Dr. Oz said they were the number one miracle in a bottle to lose fat. Raspberry ketones have now become a widely popular way to try and lose weight.
Heath Benefits of Raspberry Ketones
Since this compound is very rich in anti-oxidants, there are some health benefits. Along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, raspberry ketones can be a great addition. You may notice increased energy levels.
As with any supplement, you will not see any weight loss solely by taking this one. A supplement is only meant to do just that — supplement an already healthy diet to achieve your goals. Weight loss can occur with this supplement as long as the rest of your diet is in check. You may have seen amazing before and after photos of people losing a lot of weight while using raspberry ketones. It is important to note that these people already took on a well balanced diet and exercise regimen.
Should I Take Raspberry Ketones?
Before deciding whether or not you should take raspberry ketones, you need to weigh the cost versus the health benefits. If your diet is already full of anti-oxidants, you may not notice much of a difference. If you are looking to lose weight with this supplement, give it a shot and see if it works for you. Be sure to supplement it with a well balanced diet.
