Raspberry Ketone Side Effects

by Raspberry Ketone on February 14, 2012

Roughly a week ago Dr. Oz changed the health world by informing everybody of a powerful compound called raspberry ketone. Since then, the hype surrounding raspberry ketone has exploded and many people are wondering whether or not it is safe. This comes as no surprised, considering most people probably had no idea raspberry ketone even existed before Dr. Oz mentioned it.

Status With the FDA

When evaluating anything related to a drug or substance, the FDA will generally have information about it. According to the FDA, raspberry ketone was granted a GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status in 1965. Raspberry ketone still has this status as of today, which is a positive sign.

The FDA considers chemically engineered raspberry ketone safe as well. While most products will contain natural raspberry ketone, some manufacturers use a blend because natural raspberry ketone is so expensive. Regardless, if a product has natural raspberry ketone it is likely safe, and free of side effects when taken in the proper dose.

Raspberry Ketone Uses

Raspberry ketone is only now being used as a weight loss supplement. However, it has been used as a health supplement for a long period of time because raspberry ketone has a high level of antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that remove free radicals from the body, which slow down the body’s metabolism and other internal processes. In other words, antioxidants boost the body’s immune system.

Side Effects of Raspberry Ketone

The tell-tale sign of whether a product is safe or not is whether or not users experience side effects and how severe those side effects may be. The good news is: raspberry ketone has no known negative side effects. Almost nobody has reported a negative side effect, albeit allergic reactions from the microscopic number of people who used the product despite having an allergy could occur.

The only “side effects” of raspberry ketone were actually those of a positive nature. Just about every user of raspberry ketone reported an increase in energy, improved focus and concentration, a higher level of stamina, and of course a higher rate of weight loss.

Raspberry Ketone Diet Supplements

While raspberry ketone is safe in itself, most diet products do not just contain raspberry ketone. Therefore, it can be difficult to determine whether or not the product is safe. Common substances added to raspberry ketone include: African
Mango extract, Acai berry extract, and green tea extract. These substances are also safe to use and will further boost your weight loss.

Substances you should look out for include guarana and ephedra. Both of these stimulants have negative effects on the body if too much is taken at once. Plus, these two substances have been linked to numerous health effects and are often responsible for giving users the jittery feeling.


So with all this information in front of us, it absolutely makes sense. Raspberry ketone supplements are safe for people to use to achieve weight loss. The powerful properties in raspberry ketone make it a terrific weight loss supplement for almost anybody to use. Do not wait any longer – start losing weight today with raspberry ketone!
