Has anyone tried Raspberry Ketone? I keep hearing about it and wanted some feedback
This is really popular right now (especially since it's been on the Dr. Oz show). There's a few things to keep in mind about this product...
Naturally occurring raspberry ketone is extremely expensive by volume, so what you're getting in the store is more than likely synthetic. While this might not be a bad thing in some supplements, there simply hasn't been enough research done on this one to make a determination yet.
While we're on the subject of studies, all of the studies that have been done on this supplement have been done on mice. There are no studies on people. Mice are not people, so there is a gap in reliable data here. Other factors to take into consideration: the difference in chemistry between men and women. Not only are there no studies about this supplement on people, there aren't any on how it affects men and women, respectively.
As with most weight loss supplements, I'd say "save your money." There's really no substitution for exercise and proper diet. Your body does a great job regulating itself with no help with the proper diet and exercise. The best part of that - it's free

I tried raspberry ketone about 4 years ago (its not as new as you think), when I still believed that there were magic potions out there that could really "help". Outside of fruity smell to my urine, I did not notice any huge benefits. Just another way for a supplement company to get your $$. My advice, manage your diet carefully, find a great trainer and spend the money on something that we KNOW works.
That may seem harsh, but I promise you it is a cruel to be kind thing...don't waste money and time. Do what works.
Best of luck.:)
