Raspberry Ketone is a phenolic compound of the Rubus idaeus, the red raspberry. It is the primary aroma compound in red raspberries and provides them with their particular and specific odor. It has been used in cosmetics, perfumery, pharmaceutics and as a food additive. Raspberries themselves have been used for centuries in folk medicine to treat a variety of symptoms, ranging from sores and colds to anemia and others. Phenolic compounds in raspberry seeds have been found to have strong antioxidant effects. Raspberry Ketone is said to regulate adiponectine – a protein in our bodies which is connected to the control of glucose levels and fatty acid breakdown. By regulating this protein, it influences the rate at which fat is broken down in the body. It thus speeds up fat loss, especially if coupled with good exercise and a balanced and healthy diet.
