November 2, 2012 (Newswire.com) - Until recently, very few people had ever heard of raspberry ketones, the aromatic compounds that give the berries their distinctive smell. Today, health food stores have trouble keeping the capsules or drops of the stuff on their shelves. Almost overnight, an obscure plant compound became the next big thing in weight loss - and all it took was a few words from Dr. Oz.
Raspberry ketone is an aromatic, natural, phenolic compound derived from ripe red raspberries. It has been used extensively in the food industry as an additive to give a fruity aroma. It has also been used in the manufacture of perfumes and cosmetics. Only recently, raspberry ketone was discovered as a weight loss supplement.
How it works to lose weight
Raspberry ketone, when consumed, induces the production of the hormone adinopectin. This hormone is responsible for fat metabolism in the body. According to researchers, this natural compound has the same structure as capsaicin, a hot pepper extract that is also used for weight loss. Adinopectin hormone acts by increasing the sensitivity of insulin, leading to weight loss. A research done by Korea's FDA to look into the effects of this supplements showed that when male mice are subjected to a high fat diet and raspberry ketone supplements, they had more adinopectin in the body, showed increased fat metabolism, and had less fat retained in the body.
A more recent study, however, reports that raspberry ketone may play a role in increasing skin elasticity and in inducing the growth of new hair in people with alopecia.
The study is by another Japanese research group that formed a similarly based hypothesis to the one that originated the aforementioned obesity study. Since raspberry ketone is chemically similar to capsaicins, and since previous research has shown that capsaicins increase the expression of a dermal (skin) insulin-like growth factor that increases skin elasticity and promotes hair growth, the researchers hypothesized whether raspberry ketones could have the same effect.
Synthetic ketone is also very affordable and is only a few dollars per pound so it is by far one of the more affordable weight loss supplements around. This compound has become so popular that stores cannot keep up with the demand or it. It seems people are buying it in droves to aid them in weight loss. Where to buy raspberry ketone?
