A little while ago, the Dr Oz TV Show exposed the weight loss benefits of both Raspberry Ketones and African Mango referring to it as the Òfat metabolizer in a bottleÓ and since then, products combining these two ingredients have been available with popularity increasing greatly in recent times.
What are Raspberry Ketones?
They are considered to be the aromatic compound (the gorgeous raspberry smell) found in raspberries which research has shown to be so useful in weight loss and weight maintenance amongst other benefits. The trouble is, one cannot eat enough raspberries to ingest sufficient raspberry ketone to make much difference in weight loss. We need a concentration which is exactly.
How do they work?
Research is indicating they trigger a three-fold process:
(1) Raspberry Ketones increase the levels of a hormone made by fat cells called Adiponectin. This hormone is anti-inflammatory, associated with longevity, and causes a decrease in the risk of diabetes and cardio-vascular disease...all good outcomes. It also helps the body to handle and utilise glucose which is where it excels in weight loss - glucose disregulation is one reason for excess stored adipose tissue, or brown fat.
(2) Within each fat cell, we have an enzyme called Hormone Sensitive Lipase. Raspberry Ketones appear to assist HSL do its job which is to move towards the fat within the fat cell,
that is the triglycerides or triacylglycerol (stored fat), and break down the fat into Free Fatty Acids. This process is called Òfat metabolismÓ or Òburning fatÓ or Òfatty acid oxidationÓ and it causes the fat cell to shrink which is exactly what we are after for weight loss. Some of the Free Fatty Acids also go to the mitochondria where they can be used for energy production.
(3) Raspberry Ketones also appear to decrease fat accumulation by decreasing the amount of fat coming into a fat cell and being stored - again great for weight loss and maintenance.
How can I help them work?
There is no such thing as a Òmagic pillÓ - Raspberry Ketones are amazing but need your help by providing your body with a healthy diet, free from processed and packaged foods and a reduced sugar intake. Fresh fruit and vegetables (organic and home-grown is a bonus) plus good quality meats, fish and dairy all contribute to a healthy diet. A sensible exercise program should be undertaken even if it is just a good brisk walk several times a week.
