Raspberry Ketones are a natural phenolic compounds that are responsible for the heavenly aroma of red raspberries. According to a published Planta Medica study, they are also showing promise as a potent fat burner.
The study showed that raspberry ketones increased both the expression and secretion of adiponectin. Adiponectin is a protein hormone which modulates a number of metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid catabolism. This can translate to increased fat burning, as past research into adiponectin has shown that your levels of adiponectin are directly connected with your body fat percentage.
Thus, Higher Adiponectin = lower levels of body fat!
The Planta Medica study supported this theory by showing decreased body fat in test subjects receiving Raspberry Ketones. And if losing weight isn’t enough, higher levels of adiponection have been shown to influence the metabolic issues that may result in type 2 diabetes, obesity, atherosclerosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome.
Therefore, the researchers concluded that Raspberry Ketones “holds great promise as an fat-burning, health-improving herbal medicine”. Our Raspberry Ketone Supplement contains a high quality blend of Raspberry Ketones and supportive products to support your weight loss efforts!
