Since the recent buzz surrounding raspberry ketone, thanks to Dr. Oz, there has been a slew of fly by night sellers popping up. These sellers are typically looking to cash in and make a quick buck off a hot new trend. When you are shopping for a raspberry ketone supplement, you are going to see prices as low as ~$15. Supplements priced that low are generally cheap generic brands that anyone can buy in bulk and re-sell.
There are a couple things to consider:
- The quality of the ingredients – Poor quality or fake ingredients are obviously not effective.
- The safety of the supplement – Continuing from the previous point, cheap ingredients can sometimes mean unsafe.
- Who’s selling it - Anyone can sell on Amazon, eBay and a slew of other websites. Choosing who you buy from is very important, theres something to be said for great customer service and a reputable company.
- Cost – We all love saving money, but going cheap on products you ingest is not always wise. A quality raspberry ketone product is going to typically range from $30-50 a bottle.
Proper dosage is important, 100-200mg a day of raspberry ketones is generally recommended – One serving in the morning and one during lunch. You also want to lose weight at a safe, steady pace, it is possible to lose weight too fast, especially when combining diet and exercise with raspberry ketone. Typically a safe weight loss rate is up to 4-5lbs a week, try lowering your raspberry ketone dosage if you feel you are losing weight too fast.
