Raspberry Ketones, should I use them?


Raspberry ketones are all the hype right now thanks to Dr. Oz. 
Recent research shows that raspberry ketones at high doses causes nor-epinephrine induced lipolsyis (breakdown of fats) to occur. This research supports the activity of the ketones to release stored fat from cells.  However it is important to keep this in mind:

Where does the released fat go?  

The answer depends on you;

  1. If you take the ketones, then sit down with a bag of chips in front of the television the fats get reabsorbed right back into the cells that just released it!  
  2. Physical activity, that gets your heart rate elevated, will burn off the released fat.  Also your diet plays a big role here, adequate fiber intake will help eliminate the release fats.  Fiber will bind to fat and help move it out of your body.  Don’t forget the water!
So the answer to, “should you use them,” depends on how serious you are about losing weight!
Yes Raspberry Ketones will help you lose the excess weight faster but you HAVE to exercise and eat right as well or else it is just a waste of money.
