What is raspberry ketone? Raspberry ketone is a natural phenolic compound of the red raspberry. The chemical structure of raspberry ketone is similar to the structures of capsaicin and synephrine, compounds known to exert promote the metabolism and breakdown of body fat. Likewise, raspberry ketone has been shown to promote fat metabolism. Losing weight and keeping it off is not a simple process. In fact, the majority of persons who lose weight regain the weight within 1 to 5 years. The reasons for over 80% recidivism rate in gaining back weight previously lost are multifactorial, and include metabolic, behavioral, neuroendocrine and autonomic mechanisms. Consequently, a multifaceted approach to losing weight and keeping it of is required. One promising weapon in the arsenal of this approach to weight management is raspberry ketone. In one study, mice were fed a high-fat diet, along with raspberry ketone. The results showed that the raspberry ketone prevented the high-fat diet from causing weight gain in the mice, including visceral adipose tissue (i.e., fat around the mid-section or belly fat). It also prevented an accumulation of fat in the liver. The raspberry ketone was found to increase lipolysis, which is the release of fat from fat cellsa very exciting development.
