Raspberry Ketone prevents weight gain in mice

Weight loss is a goal for many within western culture. Diet and exercise are generally the focus, though it’s common to look for a little help if it’s available and effective. Supplements in particular are popular, with varying degrees of results. The latest one to get press for its possible weight loss assistance is raspberry ketone.

This chemical is found in many fruits, including blackberries, cranberries and of course raspberries. It is similar in structure to capsaicin, which has been studied to help prevent weight gain. In some studies, the chemical has been shown to reduce fat cells and prevent skin from aging. This sounds too good to be true, and this in fact may be the case. There have been no comprehensive studies of raspberry ketone and its effects on humans (only mice have been used so far).

Raspberry ketone is considered safe by the FDA, but there is a catch: this assumes consumption of less than two milligrams of the substance per day, while weight loss supplements pack in much more. At those doses, it’s important to note that it can change body fat, but also cause heart palpitations and have poor combinations with medications (in particular, ones that regulate hormones and cholesterol). It’s also not recommended if you have diabetes. So if you do plan to give it a try, be aware of the risks and always consult your doctor. It may help, but it’s important to be safe and double check your medications for safety.
