I have been thinking about purchasing Raspberry Ketones- 100% Natural Weight Loss Supplement - 500 Mg - 50 Gram Jar. Has this worked for anyone? I would like to hear input from others before I purchase.

I have tried the Swanson Raspberry Keytones. Aside from a pleasant smell and small capsule size, I can't really say that I noticed anything special when I took them. Of course effectiveness also depends on secondary habits like exercise and proper diet, and the product you listed also appears to be of a great potency. I say give it a try and see if it works for you -- just don't expect a magic pill.

I would recommend the proper diet and moderate exercise and save the money you spend on supplements to buy better quality food to eat.

Raspberry leaf tea is occasionally used medicinally. I cannot recall what it is good for, right now. I think just general cleansing.

Supplements can save your life. My physician prescribes them all of the time to help with lyme disease.

Depends on the supplement and on the disease. But most supplements that claim to aid weight loss are nothing but a way to part you from your money.

None of the supplements I take are related to weight loss.

That's what the OP was about, a weight loss product.

But, not all supplements are weight loss products--like Calcium, Vitamins, etc. Certainly raspberry leaf tea has nothing to do with weight loss so I am not sure what the "keytones" are.

I know that, Kathleen. But this product is being advertised as a weight loss supplement.

I would much rather spend my money on FRESH RASPBERRIES. They are delicious and are a superfood really. I see little on the sales page here at amazon to suggest where the ketones come into it, but they are not a happy chemical to have in excess, albeit a natural one and one that can save your life. If the ketones do any good whatsoever as a supplement, I would suggest it would be to sharpen up the brain function, which may not be such a bad thing.

Cheers,

PLEASE check this out before you buy any products. This is not my site it is a search I did and it show the part of the Dr. Oz show that speaks about Raspberry Ketone. Again, not MY site but you will learn what to by and what to watch for!

Excellent suggestions for Oz fans.

Why do people think a chemical pill will give them the same benefits as eating a healthy diet of whole foods? It's just not going to happen, and I'd rather have the fresh raspberries anyway. There's no quick, easy way out. Eat well and exercise or get sick and die. Complicating matters with fancy-schmancy laboratory-created weight loss supplements that are all pretty much counting on the placebo effect to be successful are only helpful in a financial way to the entities selling it. I try to look beyond the veil of marketing.

Michael Pollan says it best: eat food, real food, not too much, and mostly vegetables.

Most definitely the way to go, Tink.

If we take the raspberry completely apart, then separate out the "Vital" substances, concentrate them and stabilise them, standardise them and market them, OK, so we have lots of substances that are the in thing with the logic strings of both producers and consumers.

What we miss out on, is what they throw away. They throw what they don't know about yet, away. Indeed, it is what they don't know about yet that makes the fresh raspberry such good value! When you eat the whole, ripe fruit (vegetable included) you get everything it takes to make that plant live and flourish.

Tear it apart and throw parts away, then reconstruct it, preserve it etc., and about all you do is pay the wages of lots of people and loads of indirect taxation.

Next time you see berries of any sort (edible, that is) growing in the wild, pull up and have a good feed of them. Your gut will be very happy.

Cheers,

John$
