What Are Raspberry Ketones?

Raspberry ketones are the natural compounds responsible for giving raspberries their distinctive scent. They've been used for years to add a raspberry taste and scent to beverages and cosmetics. And now, research shows that they may work as natural weight- loss aids.

The only studies done so far have involved rodents. Scientists found that mice given raspberry ketones had improved fat burning and did not gain weight. While results are encouraging, more research is needed.

Since raspberry ketones are a natural substance with no known side effects, raspberry ketone supplements are a worthwhile option for anyone looking to lose weight. Many formulas on the market combine them with other fat-burning and appetite-reducing nutrients.
