What is Raspberry Ketone?
Raspberry ketone is a natural phenolic compound of the red raspberry. The chemical structure of raspberry ketone is similar to the structures of capsaicin and synephrine‚ compounds known to exert promote the metabolism and breakdown of body fat. Likewise‚ raspberry ketone has been shown to promote fat metabolism.
Raspberry Ketone Benefits:
1) Help lose weight and keep it off.
2) Supports fat metabolism.
3) Helps promote the release of fat from fat cells.
4) May help reduce the accumulation of new fat in fat cells.
Losing weight and keeping it off is not a simple process. In fact‚ the majority of persons who lose weight regain the weight within 1 to 5 years. The reasons for over 80% recidivism rate in gaining back weight previously lost are multifactoral‚ and include metabolic‚ behavioral‚ neuroendocrine and autonomic mechanisms. Consequently‚ a multifaceted approach to losing weight and keeping it of is required. One promising weapon in the arsenal of this approach to weight management is Raspberry ketone.
In one study‚ mice were fed a high-fat diet‚ along with raspberry ketone. The results showed that the raspberry ketone prevented the high-fat diet from causing weight gain in the mice‚ including visceral adipose tissue (i.e.‚ fat around the mid-section or “belly fat”). It also prevented an accumulation of fat in the liver. The raspberry ketone was found to increase lypolysis‚ which is the release of fat from fat cells—a very exciting development.
Additional research was undertaken to more fully understand the mechanism of action by which raspberry ketone exerts its ability to promote the release of fat from fat cells‚ and ultimately keep body weight down. In this study‚ fat cells were treated with raspberry ketone. As previously seen‚ raspberry ketone increased lipolysis. In addition‚ raspberry ketone increased the secretion of adiponectin‚ a hormone produced by fat cells. This is important because adiponectin plays a role in fatty acid metabolism‚ and higher levels of adiponectin are associated with a lower percentage of body fat. Furthermore‚ raspberry ketone increased fatty acid oxidation (the burning of body fat as an energy fuel) and reduced the accumulation of new fat in fat cells.
Truly‚ raspberry ketone holds great promise as an effective agent for reducing body fat‚ and helping to keep it off. Given the high recidivism rate for gaining back weight previously lost‚ any sensible approach to losing weight and keeping off would do well to include raspberry ketone‚ in addition to a sensible diet and exercise program.
In addition to raspberry ketone‚ this formulation also includes a green tea extract standardized to 50% polyphenols. In human clinical research‚ green tea polyphenols have demonstrated an ability to promote the oxidation (i.e.‚ burning) of body fat. Genceutic Naturals’ Raspberry Ketone + Green Tea provides Raspberry Ketone and Green Tea leaf extract standardized to 50% Polyphenols‚ 15% EGCG‚ and 30% Catechins.
