That is the reason as to why most people are so big and overweight. This has been a matter of concern for many people and that is why very many companies have joined in this market to try and work out solutions for the problem.

Over time there have been many major discoveries on the many ways that one can pursue in order just to reduce their weight. Some have tried the avenue of using surgery which has actually worked for many people. The problem of surgery is the fact that it is painful and it takes some time to recover. The cost is also high because you have to pay for the facilities and the surgeons not to mention what it takes for someone to fully recover. There are also other methods like using creams and other types of belts to reduce weight.

That is why when the famous TV doctor Oz introduced the raspberry ketone it came to be one of the most sought out method of reducing weight and improving the digestive system and metabolism. The raspberry ketone is one of the naturally occurring substances and can be found in most berries. It is mostly found in the raspberry fruit which is mostly used in the perfumes and cosmetics industry because of its sweet smelling aroma.

The only problem is the fact that it is found in very small quantities in the fruit and it takes quite some time and a long process to extract it and that is why it is very expensive and the resulting products quite highly priced. They are also used in the production of food supplements because of the smell and can be used in the spices added to food.

There has been quite a considerable test in the use of the raspberry ketones especially with rats and mice. Studies have been conducted where bye the rats have been subjected to a high fat diet for a number of weeks then their weights are measured. Then the rats are separated in to two groups in which one will be subjected to a dosage of the raspberry ketones.

It has been observed that the ones that are under the raspberry ketone diet will have a considerable amount of weight loss after a certain period of time. The test has also been carried out on natural fat in the lab and it has been seen that the ketones will aid in burning the fat in a very short time.

People who are struggling with their weight therefore can lose quite a considerable amount of weight in a very short time if they opt to supplement their diet by introducing the raspberry ketones. Of course this does not mean that they continue with the unhealthy eating habits thinking that this will be the solution. They also need to take other alternatives like exercising.
