Why is losing weight so hard? Research (1) suggests that our metabolism works against us. When we lose weight, our metabolism slows. Essentially, our bodies move into starvation mode, and that slowed metabolism allows the pounds to creep back.

Combat that natural process with our Raspberry Ketone Drops with African Mango.

Science Meets Nature in Our Supplements

Ketones give raspberries their distinctive sweet/sour scent. For decades, synthetic versions of raspberry ketones have been added to colas, ice creams, cookies, and other sweet foods. Only recently have scientists discovered that the same scented elements could help to jump-start metabolisms.

Exogenous (or made outside the body) ketones like raspberry ketones were shown, in a groundbreaking study from 2017, to push people into a state of ketosis (2). When your body is in ketosis, your sense of hunger slows and your metabolism speeds up. This state is the goal of diets like the Keto Diet. By adding raspberry ketones to your diet, through our supplements, you could get the same impact without the hassle of a restrictive eating plan.

Raspberry ketones have also been associated with anti-obesity action, in studies performed with mice. In the most well-known study of this phenomenon, published in 2005 (3), researchers split mice into two groups. Both were fed a high-fat diet, but only one also got raspberry ketones too. The raspberry group did not gain as much weight as the other group, and had better scores of liver health.

Clearly, mice are not humans. Studies with humans are ongoing, and we eagerly wait for those results. But, studies like this do demonstrate how much power is packed within a ketone supplement.

How Are Our Supplements Different?

In October of 2012, Dr. Mehmet Oz discussed raspberry ketones on a daytime talk show, and interest in the supplements exploded. Everyone wanted to know where to get them, why to try them, and what the supplements might do.

Unfortunately, that means plenty of supplement makers developed their own raspberry ketone products, and many of those products were simply substandard.

We worked closely with a physician when we developed our ketone product. Our formula contains a proprietary blend of raspberry ketones and African mango. This powerful combination is designed to both boost metabolism (through ketosis) and slim belly fat (through mango).

We also dug into herbal weight-loss formulations, looking for other ingredients that could boost the power of our product. After our extensive research, we added elements like ginseng, maca, capsicum, and grapefruit to the mixture.

You can't get our proprietary mixture anywhere else. It is only available through our products.

Our products are also made within the United States, and they ship from the United States too. That means concerns about fraud do not apply to our products. You will always get the product you asked for, when you ask for it.

Raspberry ketone is an extract from red raspberry. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that this nutrient helps prevent a high-fat, diet-induced increase in body weight [1-3]. More specifically, raspberry ketones have anti-obesity properties due to its ability to boost the production and release of a protein called adiponectin which plays a role in the breakdown of fatty acids (fats) as well as the regulation of blood glucose (sugar) [1].

Therefore, raspberry ketone supplementation reduces the accumulation of fat and heightens fat degradation. Based on these benefits, raspberry ketones have been described as a promising herbal alternative for improving fat metabolism [1], and this is an important factor for weight control.

Combining the anti-obesity properties of raspberry ketones with African Mango also improves weight management. According to several studies, consuming African Mango (Irvingia gabonensis) consistently is associated with decreased body weight along with lower total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) as well as higher HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) [4-6]. All of these factors support weight loss.

African Mango is rich in dietary fiber that binds to waste in the gut, thereby promoting its removal from the body. This process boosts metabolism by causing the body to convert more bad cholesterol into waste and it is believed that this is one of the main reasons why consuming the dietary fiber in African Mango promotes weight loss [4]. Additional anti-obesity nutrients include [7-13]: grapeseed pyruvate, grapefruit powder, Garcinia, Guarana, panax ginseng, capsicum, and eleuthero.

Amino acids such as L-Carnitine, L-Arginine, Beta-Alanine, and Tryptophan have also been shown to improve metabolism for individuals who are striving for optimal weight management. For instance, L-Carnitine enhances the body’s fat burning potential and when it is combined with other carbohydrates, it elicits a glycogen (carbohydrate) sparing effect, which hinders the rapid breakdown of carbohydrates during exercise [14]. This subsequently delays exercise-induced fatigue, thereby allowing individuals to safely exercise for longer periods.

Similarly, L-Arginine increases the body’s production of nitric oxide (NO), which enhances blood flow and metabolism as well as nutrient and oxygen delivery [15]. Furthermore, beta-alanine supplementation supports increases in lean muscle mass and fat burning, while consuming tryptophan suppresses the appetite [16-18].

A powerful nutrient known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is found in green tea extract, has also been shown to boost fat burning and energy expenditure during workouts [19]. 

Maca, which is known for its energy-boosting potential, is especially beneficial because it helps reduce body weight and it also improves blood pressure, triglyceride, and cholesterol levels [20].

Chromium is another versatile nutrient the body needs in order to efficiently metabolize fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Furthermore, its ability to decrease fat, suppress the appetite, and increase energy expenditure also helps people achieve weight loss [21]. In addition, chromium heightens the activity of insulin, improves glucose (sugar) metabolism, and supports healthy blood glucose levels, which is important for overweight individuals who have diabetes [21].

Overall, the right combination of nutrients is the key to promoting and maintaining optimal weight control. Each of the aforementioned ingredients are backed by research that demonstrates their ability to support weight management.
