Raspberry Ketones – Metabolism Boosting Gold

Raspberry Ketones are becoming increasingly common in weight loss supplements, but do you know anything about them? Greeniche’s VegeSlim formula features this incredible compound as one of the main ingredients of our metabolism boosting formula. Before you try out VegeSlim, though, it is important to know how this compound works. By understanding the formula, you can get the most out of our metabolism-boosting formula. 

Coes Boosting a Metabolism Increase Weight Loss?

The most important thing to know about raspberry ketones is that they increase your metabolic rate. By themselves, they will not produce weight loss effects. In studies, the use of raspberry ketones simply reduced the amount of weight gained from a weight gain focused diet. Subjects were fed the same diet, but subjects who had ketone supplements retained 10% less weight than the control group. This could increase the effectiveness of a healthy diet and exercise routine in weight loss, though. Raspberry Ketones, when used as  a supplement, could supercharge the fitness routine you already follow by accelerating your metabolism.

The basal metabolic rate, or BMR, is the genetically inherited rate at which the body naturally burns calories. Natural biological processes, like breathing and pumping blood, require calories and build the foundation of the BMR. Anyone who talks about having a fast or slow metabolism is referring to this natural rate. Raspberry ketones are believed to increase the BMR, leading to a higher natural rate of burning energy. This gives the body less available energy to use in exercise, forcing it to burn fat for energy.

How Do Raspberry Ketones Work?

While raspberry ketones have yet to be thoroughly studied, they are believed to work similar to capsaicin and synephrine. These three compounds are very similar in their elemental composition, even molecular amounts differ. Capsaicin and synephrine are both well documented in their metabolism boosting abilities, implying that ketones will find similar success.

In one of the few studies of raspberry ketones, researchers found that the compound increased the breakdown of fat cells. This allowed for fat to be processed more effectively in the body. It also increased levels of adiponectin, a hormone found in fat tissue believed to influence metabolic rates. Scientists have found that individuals with a high BMR tend to have higher levels of adiponectin compared to those with a low BMR.

Aren’t Raspberry Ketones Used In Makeup?

While raspberry ketones are finding recent popularity, they are not a recent discovery. Ketones are the substance in raspberries that give the berries their distinct smell and taste. As such, they have been used for years in cosmetics and flavourings. Many raspberry scented lip balms and raspberry flavoured beverages, among other things, contain raspberry ketones. A similar compound is an additive found in many of the most beloved childhood candies. Citric acid, a powder used to give candies their sour sensation, is also used in a variety of cosmetic products. Rather than scent or flavour, citric acid is used as a preservative in cosmetics.

Can I Just Eat Raspberries To Get Their Ketones?

Though raspberries are the source of raspberry ketones, they hold a very small amount.

Though the compound is called “raspberry ketones”, they do not commonly come from raspberries. While the compound does occur naturally in raspberries, blackberries, kiwis, and cranberries, they are found in incredibly small amounts. With the most effective modern techniques, a kilogram of raspberries can only yield 2-4mg of raspberry ketones. Even with the best harvesting results, a single tablet of VegeSlim would require around $460 of raspberries!

Greeniche, as well as every other brand that uses raspberry ketones, utilizes synthetic ketones to keep products affordable. While synthetic raspberry ketones may not come from raspberries, they are virtually indistinguishable from naturally sourced raspberry ketones. This allows Greeniche to pack 100mg of these ketones into every VegeSlim tablet.

Are There Any Other Substances That Increase Metabolism?

While raspberry ketones are one of the best regarded substances for increasing metabolism, they are not the only option. Things like caffeine and green coffee bean extract can also aid in increasing metabolic rates. VegeSlim includes these ingredients in their formula to ensure customers get a powerful boost to their metabolism. Greeniche has also included ingredients like chromium, which helps metabolize excess carbohydrates, to support alternative weight-loss processes. This creates an overall weight loss supporting supplement that makes the most of every second spent exercising.
