Raspberry ketones are potent metabolic boosters that can help achieve accelerated weight loss by encouraging the body to burn higher levels of stored body fats.
Raspberry Ketones are compounds that occur naturally in red raspberries. They can be used as dietary supplements to help lose weight faster by encouraging the body to burn fat for energy.
Ketones are naturally occurring compounds in fruits such as raspberries, kiwis, peaches, apple, and rhubarb. They give these fruits their unique aromas. Raspberries particularly have a higher number of ketones compared to other fruits. But the term ‘Raspberry ketones’ does not necessarily refer to ketones obtained from the raspberry fruit as the molecular structure is similar in fruits such as blackberries and cranberries.
The fitness industry has found ways to isolate these ketones and use them as potent dietary supplements. They are used in dietary supplement packages for weight loss. They are available in Australia as standalone supplements or as a combination alongside other useful dietary supplements.
Ketones are naturally made in the human body when you don’t have enough blood sugar to be burned into energy. They are made in the liver from existing fat stores and sent to the muscles for metabolization.
Raspberry Ketones suppress the appetite leaving the body to work with the existing fat deposits, which accelerates weight loss. They also stimulate the release of adiponectin which is involved in the breakdown of fatty acids and regulation of blood sugar.
Raspberry Ketones have shown to be effective in preventing elevations in body weight for those who consume diets high in fat, with this effect reportedly coming from the alteration of lipid metabolism, by increasing norepinephrine-induced lipolysis in the body.
Raspberry Ketones have recently become popular as dietary supplements for people wanting to lose weight because of the success of the ketogenic diet. This type of diet stimulates a starving process, whereby the body gets a signal that there is a shortage of blood sugar and it is time to metabolize fat reserves.
Raspberry Ketones have a chemical structure very much alike that of metabolic boosters synephrine and capsaicin, which also occur naturally. These compounds activate hormones that trigger the metabolic process in the liver, which signal it to burn blood sugar or fats. Weight loss supplements are made more effective by using Raspberry ketones alongside these metabolic boosters.
The process by which the body metabolizes stored fats for energy is called ketosis. This process produces ketones. This type of ketones is called endogenous ketones. Raspberry ketones belong to exogenous ketones, which is to say ketones that come from outside the body.
Exogenous ketones can be natural, like those found in fruits like raspberry, or they can be synthetic. Natural ketones are sometimes called ‘ketone salts’ while synthetic ketones are called ‘ketone esters.’
A study found that both types of ketones suppress appetite and help maintain blood sugar levels. People who took ketone-containing drinks achieved the same metabolic peaks as people who took caffeine, which is a well-known metabolic booster.
While more studies need to be done on humans to understand the benefits of raspberry ketone, ketones are commonly known to:
How to take Raspberry Ketones?
The recommended intake of Raspberry Ketones is 100-400 milligrams in a day. In a dietary supplement, you can have 2 servings per day, where these servings are carefully calibrated to provide the correct dosage.
Raspberry Ketones are safe to take when you follow the instructions that come with the dietary supplement package. However, just like any other foods, Raspberry ketones can be unsafe to consume in large quantities. Consult a doctor or dietitian before introducing a new supplement in your lifestyle.
Anyone seeking the benefits of ketones can use raspberry ketones supplements. However, it is inadvisable for children, because they are still growing. People who are recovering from major injuries should also wait to heal before using weight loss supplements.
Raspberry Ketones are available in Australia as standalone dietary supplements or as ingredients in combination with other helpful supplements like Vitamin C for more effective action.
