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.PRO
