WHAT IS RASPBERRY KETONE and HOW DOES IT WORK?
Raspberry ketone is an aromatic compound found in raspberries that, when ingested in high doses, is said to increase the body’s production of adiponectin, a protein used to regulate your metabolism, as well as the body’s breaking down of fat stores. In order to ingest the recommended 100-milligram dosage required to affect these changes, however, one would have to consume 90 pounds of raspberries per day. As a result, the compound is produced synthetically in labs and consumed in pill form.. Scientists had previously shown that pungent compounds with similar chemical structures, such as capsaicin and synephrine, had lipolytic activity – causing fat breakdown – in rats fed a high-fat diet and in in vitro fat cells. Researchers observed that, compared to controls, raspberry ketone decreased the amount of fat in the liver and visceral adipose (abdominal fat) tissues of mice. It also significantly increased norepinephrine-induced lipolysis (the decomposition of fat) in some rat fat cells.
The Adiponectin in ketones is the key to weightloss. Adiponectin is a protein used by the body to regulate metabolism. Higher levels are associated with fewer fat stores. Scientists studied the effects of raspberry ketones on in vitro fat cells and observed a higher secretion of adiponectin when compared to controls.
Likening the effect of raspberry ketone on fat cells to that of liquid nitrogen on balloons, it is suggested that when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise, raspberry ketone will bring about dramatic physical changes by “tricking” the body into thinking it is thin.
