Raspberry Ketones... have you heard of them? They are supposed to help boost your metabolism and help you burn fat, AND suppress your appetite.
I have always been a bit of a skeptic when it comes to all the claims made by different supplements. So when I was approached by Summit Nutritions to try their Pure Raspberry Ketones, well..... I tried to test this with an open mind but I came in being.... yes, a skeptic.
Let me get some details out of the way. They are all natural, and have no artificial fillers, or binders. Just Pure Raspberry Ketones. Even the capsule is vegan. They are manufactured in the USA and are FDA approved cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Highest Quality Standard for Manufacturing Supplements).
When the product arrived, I loved the color, pretty red. It is recommended that you take one table twice a day, 30 minutes before a meal. I did. Took one 30 minutes before breakfast, and then forgot to eat breakfast. I wasn't hungry and it's my hunger that tells me it's breakfast time. Okay, Raspberry Ketones, you're off to a good start!
I've been taking them for over a week now, so this isn't a huge comprehensive trial, but I'll tell you what I've noticed. First, my appetite is definitely suppressed. I don't feel nearly as hungry. I'm not searching for snacks throughout the day. My meal portions have been smaller. All good things!
I have noticed more energy. I used to crash around 2 pm and had a hard time keeping up the pace for the rest of the day. I haven't noticed that anymore. I'm still plenty tired by the end of the day, but I'm not crashing mid-day. Again, good things!
I've lost three pounds this week. Now, I don't know if that is caused by Raspberry Ketones, or I'm just trying to generally eat healthier. But, the whole appetite suppressant and energy thing had to have had an effect on my weight loss.
Another little bonus, is... Not that I burp (because, after all, ladies never burp)! but if I might have let a little burp slip out it tasted like raspberries! No pill taste, no yucky taste, just sweet raspberry taste! Okay, sorry if I grossed you out!
So, I will keep taking Summit Nutritions Raspberry Ketones. I'll keep you posted on the ongoing results. Right now, I'm definitely a thumbs up!
