Pure Raspberry Ketones | Natural Fat Burners

Being able to review Summit Nutritions  Pure Raspberry Ketones Natural Fat Burner came at a great time.  My boyfriend and I were already on a mission to lose weight. But he had a family member that was also trying and needed a little extra help.  So she was excited when I asked her if she would help me out with this review.


All of us had heard of all kinds of other supplements but never Pure Raspberry Ketones Natural Fat Burner. So obviously we were all curious as to if it would even work as it claimed.


This size of the capsules weren't real large like some so they were fairly easy for her to take.





It was also great that only one capsule needed to be taken at a time.




We all liked that they offered an analysis certificate to see.

What is Raspberry Ketone Extract

Raspberry ketone is a phenolic compound, which is naturally found in berry fruits like raspberry, also known as rheosmin, and chemically as 4-(4'-Hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanone. It is the primary compound responsible for the fruity aroma of raspberries, and is often used as a fragrance and flavoring agent for cosmetics, perfumes, foods, and beverages.

How it Works in Weight Loss

Raspberry ketone has demonstrated lipolysis (breakdown of fat) effects both in vitro and in vivo. Specifically, in 3T3-L1 adipocyte cell cultures, raspberry ketone has been shown to increase fatty acid oxidation, stimulate adiponectin (a hormone responsible for fat burning in the body) expression and secretion, and inhibit lipid accumulation. In animals, raspberry ketone prevented high-fat diet-induced weight gain in the body, liver, and visceral adipose tissues, and lowered elevated levels of hepatic triacylglycerol. Moreover, raspberry ketone has been shown to reduce elevated levels of free fatty acids and lipids in high-fat diet-fed mice. In humans, raspberry ketone reduced both body weight and body fat. A purported mechanism-of-action includes stimulation of norepinephrine-mediated lipolysis.

Clinical Studies

Clinical Trial-B
Ushiki et al. conducted an acute, single administration study to examine the anti-obesity effects of raspberry ketone in healthy adults (N=5) (22). Healthy males aged 24-50 years were included in this study. On the first day of intervention, all participants received an empty wafer paper administered 30 minutes prior to the consumption of a standardized, high fat lunch (control treatment). On the second day, a wafer paper containing 100mg raspberry ketone was administered 30 minutes prior to the consumption of a standardized, high fat lunch (active treatment). Information on standardization, interactions, dropouts, adverse effects, and toxic effects was lacking. Primary outcome measures included total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, triglycerides, and free fatty acids, as assessed by blood analysis from samples taken just prior to, and one-, three-, and four and a half-hours after treatment administration. Following acute administration, raspberry ketone was also shown to significantly reduce arteriosclerosis index score ([total cholesterol - HDL cholesterol] / total cholesterol) compared to control (p‹0.05). In spite of an observed decrease in triglycerides and an increase in free fatty acids, statistically significant between treatment differences were lacking. Limitations of this study included a lack of randomization and blinding.
