See My Before and After Pictures to Prove that it Works!
A dietary supplement containing compounds from red raspberries has become nearly impossible to find in stores since Dr. Mehmet Oz proclaimed it a fat-buster and "The No. 1 Miracle in a Bottle" on his television show.
"I never understood how powerful it could be," Oz told his studio and television audience in comments that some nutritionists have attacked as hype, unsupported by any human studies.
The raspberry ketones that give the characteristic raspberry aroma and flavor to soft drinks, puddings and ice creams, also can melt away the pounds, according to Lisa Lynn, a personal trainer and fitness expert who promoted them on an episode of "The Dr. Oz Show" that aired in early February and re-ran last week.
Lynn, who sells her own line of LynFit Nutrition supplements (one of which contains raspberry ketones) described the compounds as "very healthy" with "no side effects" and said she's seen them produce results in her clients in as few as five days. The pills enable the body to "burn fat easier."
That was enough to send TV viewers running to local health food stores in search of a bottle. But many found empty shelves. The General Nutrition Center (GNC) store in the busy Santa Monica Place shopping center in California was holding its last bottle Sunday for a customer, which disappointed an environmental consultant who came up empty-handed after searching at several health and nutrition stores, which typically sell the pills for about $12 to $20 a bottle, depending on quantity and dosage.
Apparently, many weight-conscious people who follow a healthy diet came away with the same message about getting better results from the pills. But dietary experts maintain there's no substitute for long-lasting dietary changes and increased physical activity; they also worry about the absence of human studies establishing raspberry ketones' effectiveness as well as safety.
For now, the reputations of products like Raspberry Ketone Plus and Raspberry Ketone Ultra rest on anecdotes and two studies conducted on mice put on a high-fat diet. Japanese researchers reported in 2005 that raspberry ketone "prevents and improves obesity and fatty liver," by boosting the breakup of fat cells. Korean researchers reported in 2010 that raspberry ketone increased fat cells' secretion of a hormone called adiponectin that regulates the processing of sugars and fats in the blood.http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Diet/raspberry-ketones-frenzy/story?id=16074044#.UGpJd03R4sc
Raspberry Ketone increases the secretion of adiponectin, which is known to support energy metabolism. Taking just one Raspberry Ketone capsule twice daily gives you more ketone power than one large bowl of fresh berries. The recommended serving is 100 mgs twice daily. (I only took one a day.) As with any weight management program, Raspberry Ketones should be used in conjunction with proper nutrition and exercise. I joined a local gym and worked out 3 times a week for 1 hour.
What are Raspberry Ketones?Raspberry ketones are enzymes that are found only in raspberries. Just as grapes and red wine contain resveratrol, so too raspberries are another of the superfruits that contain a unique enzyme that can provide an amazing number of health benefits to those who consume them. Raspberries have been eaten throughout history by people around the world, and many native cultures on every continent have used raspberries in remedies and treatments due to the fact that they are so beneficial to the body. Only recently was the enzyme Raspberry Ketone discovered, but the berries have been used for ages as a means of dealing with a host of disorders.
