Raspberry Ketones 1000 mg Veg Caps
What Are Raspberry Ketones?
Ketones are natural chemicals that give raspberries their enticing aroma. They are phenolic compounds that also occur in berries like blackberries, cranberries, and other fruits. Although raspberry ketones have been used to add fragrance and flavor to foods and products like colas, ice cream, cosmetics, candles, soaps and candies for many years, they have recently gained attention for their alleged ability to help with weight loss.
The raspberry ketone is actually one of the most expensive products used in the food industry — the natural compound can cost as much as $20,000 per kilogram. Plus, extraction of pure raspberry ketone requires an insane amount of raspberries. Extraction occurs through hydrogenation and takes about a kilogram of raspberries (over 2 pounds) to make 1.4 milligrams of raspberry ketones.
Considering a standard supplemental dose for humans is around 100–200 milligrams, that’s a lot of raspberries! This is exactly why some supplement companies use synthetic raspberry ketone, which is much cheaper.
Structurally, raspberry ketones are somewhat similar to that of synephrine and ephedrine, two substances that are used for weight loss. Raspberry ketones also have some structural similarity to capsaicin, which is known for its pain-relieving and anti-diabetic properties.
Here’s the problem: there are no human studies on raspberry ketones alone for weight loss and the studies that are done in labs or with rodents involve very high doses of ketones.

Traditionally, ketones found in red raspberries were used to prevent high cholesterol, diabetes and even liver cancer. Raspberries were consumed for their ketones before supplements with much higher doses were available. Raspberries were also eaten for their nutritional value.
Raspberry nutrition is quite impressive, boasting powerful antioxidants and nutrients like vitamin C, manganese, vitamin K and magnesium. Consuming raspberries is known to help reduce inflammation, boost heart health, ease arthritic pain and fight aging.
