A fat-burning supplement endorsed by Dr. Oz.

QUICK FACTS Start the Diet Now Advertisement
  • Established: 1965 placed on the generally recognized as safe list by FDA
  • Founder: None – natural supplement produced by several manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies
  • Accessibility: Online or at some natural health food stores
  • Diet Type: Diet supplement
  • Gender: Male and Female
BACKGROUND

Raspberry ketone is a compound used as a diet supplement for its fat burning properties, which include increasing the body's release of norepinepherine and adiponectin. Increasing norepinepherine raises the body's temperature, and therefor helps burn calories and increase metabolism. Increasing the production of adiponectin, a hormone that lowers glucose levels, may play a role preventing calories to be stored as glycogen. People who suffer from obesity typically have lower levels of adiponectin, which is why raspberry ketone is said to "trick the body into thinking it's thin."

Since the amount of natural ketone found natually in raspberries is very low, raspberry ketone is usually synthesized. Naturally extracted ketone can be extremely expensive.

Raspberry ketone gained considerable attention in February of 2012, when the supplement was recommended on an episode of the Dr. Oz Show.

Dr. Sarah G. Khan Weighs in on Raspberry Ketone

PRO
  • Endorsed by Dr. Oz
  • Synthetic ketone is relatively inexpensive
  • Generally recognized as safe by the USDA

CON
  • Unclear how long it can be used safely
  • May not be suitable for people with diabetes
  • May not be suitable for people with high blood pressure
  • May have negative interactions with antidepressants
  • Weight loss benefits may only last while the supplement is being taken
DIET and NUTRITION

Regular exercise is recommended while taking this supplement, however it is not associated with a specific workout.

EXERCISE

For best results, raspberry ketone should taken in combination with a healthy diet, however there are no specific diet recommendations associated with this supplement.

ADMINISTRATION

Take 100 milligrams of raspberry ketone with breakfast, or increase the dosage by adding another 100 milligrams at lunch.

CONCLUSION

Raspberry ketone can speed the metabolism to aid in weight loss, but it's important to combine it with regular exercise and a calorie controlled diet. Some people find this supplement helps them get over a weight loss plateau. Like other supplements that raise body temperature, raspberry ketone may only be effective temporarily. Any weight loss achieved will require a healthy maintenance plan.

If you have any medical conditions, it's best to talk with your doctor before taking this diet supplement.

AVOID, AVOID, AVOID this scam at all costs. The trial stated explicitly that it was FREE; with the constant bombardment, why wouldn't you believe them?

I felt very uneasy about the process (NEVER doubt your gut instinct). As soon as I ordered my "trial", I regretted it, and telephoned the company immediately. But more about that later...

The Ketones Body Pro and Green Coffee Body Pro "free trials" arrived in the post yesterday. When I got through to the so-called "customer services team", I was unfortunately informed that according to their "Terms and Conditions", taking up the trial automatically enrols one for the costly auto-ship programme.

It must be noted that the CRUCIAL INFORMATION I was being given over the telephone was located within a teeny weeny - VERY EASY TO MISS - hyperlink at the bottom of the webpage.

I asked the representative about my right to cancel immediately. She told me that I would have had three hours from ordering to do so. I told her that I telephoned the company as soon as I had ordered, but found their offices shut, as it was a Saturday. (they only operate Mon-Fri, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.). She told me that I could have emailed the company. HOWEVER, according to that logic, the company still wouldn't have received my cancellation in the expected three hours, as no one would have been available to deal with the request! Utter shoddy and shady customer service!

Furthermore, no where on the website, or in the "Terms and Conditions" does it state that I had a "three hour" cancellation window period.

Worse still, the representative informed me that I had 14 days to try the product. If after that period I didn't like the product, I would have to ship what was left of the product back to the company, to avoid further charges. Now tell me, how IN THE HELL would I have known if the product worked in such a short amount of time?

At that point, the red flags unfurled; I decided there and then that I wanted an immediate end to this madness. I was then informed of my "options":

A. "Trust" the product, and continue the subscription at a whopping £90+ per month!

B. Pay a one off FEE for my "trial" - oh yes, you read correctly - and end the subscription.

C. End the subscription, then send the trial back IMMEDIATELY (intact), PLUS PAY for shipping and handling costs. Oh wait, there's more to this f*****ry: I had to pay a CANCELLATION and RESTOCKING fee.

Hahaha! The charlatans; the money-hungry, greedy, thieving b******s!!!

The cancellation and restocking fee sent me ballistic, and I refused point blank to pay for that. She agreed to waiver the charge "as a goodwill gesture". Thanks, you complete con-artists!!!

Seeing as they had backed me into a corner, I just wanted NOTHING more to do with the company; I was sick of the WEB OF CONSTANT LIES and the SMOKESCREENS. I opted for 'C'; t'was best to cut off ALL ties.

I've learnt from my foolish mistake; "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch", or '"free trial", in this instance.

I will write a strong email of complaint to the company. As to whether they'll concede to being deceitful, I highly doubt it. Judging from the way they shamefully lure customers into their den of doom, they're highly unlikely to care beans about resolving customer concerns.

I just hope that my story highlights the pitfalls of this profiteering organisation; I hope it helps dissuade anyone considering purchasing products this conniving company. BE WARNED.

Hi,

Same problem to me...they charge me 95£...I called the bank and blocked them and also I spoke to them 02031298484, they told me I need to send back trial box even is empty and they will refund to me 75£. They charged me 20£ for the first one...,,trial,,. I hope I will see one day refund from them and this trial ketone raspberry star will cost me only 20£ plus first less about I paid.

Paid for the free trial not realising I was signing up for monthly payments - took £95 and did not send a new batch.
DON'T go for the free trial - IT IS NOT FREE!

I just bought the capsules. I really hope they work and hope that they are not a scam. I see a lot of comments I just bought the capsules. I really hope they work and hope that they are not a scam. I see a lot of comments for ultra drops. Maybe I should have purchased that instead. Does anyone think the capsules are good? Is there a specific company that I should of purchased them from?

My wife and I both tried Raspberry Keytones. Total waste of money. Don't even get near this stuff if you have high blood pressure!

With so many different makers out there, why is it that everybody only mentions one particular? My guess is fake reviews, cause I have not seen any results whatsoever.

I have been taking it and have not seen pound shed> I feel that I have wasted my money,

Yes, those reviews all sound pretty fake to me, especially since they all mention the exact same product even though there are a million of them out there that are pretty much the same thing. I have been taking raspberry ketone capsule that I bought from amazon for about a week and I have finally bumped a plateau that I have been on for the last month. It's not a magic pill, I still exercise regularly and watch what I eat, as I have been doing but it does seem like it has been helpful as an extra tool to get around hurdles.
Good luck!

I've taken it for a month and the scale hasn't moved even tho I do seem to be eating less.

Is it just me or do all of these reviews sound fake??? Let's hear some real ones.
I personally am taking the pills from w-mart ($10 for 2 week supply). Only been taking for 3 days, but feel no different. No change in appetite, no weight lost. I am exercising, but not much. I had a MAJOR stomach ache that lasted about 5 hours today when I took my pills on an empty stomach. Won't be making that mistake again.

Since I started taking Raspberry Ultra Drops, I was able to shed 10 lbs without feeling any serious side effects. Based on my experience, this liquid-based product seems to dampen my appetite, keeping me from taking foods that come with too much calories. And if you will read its label, it is composed of natural ingredients that are known to be rich in antioxidants.

In my case, Raspberry Ultra Drops also works for me. This liquid-based supplement helped me lose some extra pounds and played a part in boosting my metabolism and bolstering my immune system, which can be associated with the presence of antioxidants in Raspberry Ultra Drops' ingredients.

Having the ability to lose 15 lbs within a month is a great achievement for me and I owe it to Raspberry Ultra Drops, which is a great fat-burning product that I ever tried. Although I experienced headaches during the first weeks, it's minimal compared with other diet supplements that I tried. Now, I feel great and I continue to use this product along with my adherence to diet and regular visits to the gym.
