Raspberry ketone is red raspberry's principal aromatic compound, often used as a fragrance and flavoring agent. Raspberry ketone is also a fat-loss agent with unique actions on fat cells and fat burning and disposal.
- Breaks down fat for burning*
- Activates fat-burning brown adipose tissue*
- Boosts metabolism*
Release, Burn, and Dispose of Fat*
Raspberry ketone is in several fruits and uniquely stimulates lipolysis in white fat and activates fat-burning brown adipose tissue (BAT), boosting metabolism and burning fat.*
Raspberry ketone enables fat loss by causing hormone-sensitive lipase to translocate within the fat cell. Once in the fat cell, hormone-sensitive lipase (an enzyme) slices apart fat molecules into fatty acids in preparation for fat metabolism and disposal.*
This fat-slicing activity is the limiting factor in lipolysis within the cell, meaning you can't lose fat without this enzyme, and raspberry ketone supplies it.*
