What are Raspberry Ketones?
Raspberry Ketones are widely considered by many to be the latest effective and innovative weight loss supplement to take the world by storm. As you can guess from the name, they are indeed derived from natural raspberries, and in actual fact, if you have ever consumed raspberries, or even smelt raspberries, you will instantly recognise that raspberry fragrance. What does this have to do with raspberry ketones? Well, quite simply, raspberry ketones are natural chemical compounds found within raspberries, that are responsible for giving the raspberries their unique scent and fragrance. Thanks to the wonders of modern science, we are now able to extract these ketones from raspberries, and add them to a whole host of other items, basically giving you that delightful raspberry aroma. However, not only do these ketones give raspberries their wonderful aroma, they can also be used as a highly potent and extremely effective weight loss supplement. In case you’re wondering, whilst theoretically it would be possible to benefit from these ketones if you ate raspberries, the amount of raspberries you needed to eat to benefit would be enormous, and besides which, raspberries are rich in fructose, which is why raspberry ketone supplements are proving so effective.
How do they work?
Basically, raspberry ketones work by helping the body to burn off excess body fat for energy, whilst boosting the metabolism in the process. It all comes down to their unique molecular structure. To begin with, raspberry ketones work by dramatically enhancing lipolysis speed. Lipolysis is the rate in which the body breaks down fat and converts it into a source of energy. It does this by ensuring that fat cells become more sensitive to a hormone known as norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is a fat burning hormone, so obviously the more sensitive the fat cells are, the more fat will be burnt off as a result of the hormone. On top of that, raspberry ketones work by encouraging the fat cells to secrete more of a hormone known as adiponectin. This is a hormone which helps to regulate blood glucose levels and metabolism rates.
What are the main benefits of taking raspberry ketone supplements?
Some of the primary benefits associated with raspberry ketone supplements include:
One of the best advantages associated with these supplements, is the fact that they actually help to increase energy levels as they speed up the metabolism. The faster your metabolism is, the more energy your body will generate, which in turn will also assist with weight loss.
The primary benefit associated with raspberry ketones is the fact that they have been found to be so effective at helping the body to burn off excess body fat. As mentioned, not only does it increase lipolysis, but it can also help enhance the metabolism, which basically means that we have more energy and burn off more calories.
Helps regulate blood sugar levels
As raspberry ketones ensure that fat cells secrete more adiponectin, one of the main benefits of this hormone is the fact that it helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Again, this assists with weight loss as it helps enhance insulin sensitivity, but on top of that, it also proves especially useful for diabetics, or pre-diabetics.
Other benefits include:
- Fat loss
- More energy
- Increased rates of lipolysis
- Stable blood sugar levels
- Increased metabolic rate
- And more...
How and when should they be consumed?
Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules): Adults: 1 - 2 Capsule(s) 1 - 2 time(s) per day.
Raspberry Ketones VS Green Tea Extract
A lot of people tend to compare raspberry ketones with green tea extract, and although they provide similar effects, the two are actually very different to one another. Green tea extract for example, is packed full of antioxidants, especially EGCG, or Epi Gallo Catechin Galate, which strengthens the immune system and provides a wide range of health benefits. Green tea extract is more for whole overall health as opposed to raspberry ketones, which are instead primarily about weight loss, or more specifically, fat loss.
What can it be stacked with?
Raspberry ketones don’t actually need to be stacked with other supplements to be effective, although many users will actually stack it with Vitamin C, and will see some very impressive results by doing so. Generally, they may be stacked full Omega 3 supplements and a multi-vitamin.
