Study # 1
"In double blind randomized study involving 40 subjects (mean age 42.4 years). Twenty-eight subjects received Irvingia Gabonensis (the active ingredient in Raspberry Tones African Mango) while 12 were on placebo. The difference observed between the IG and the placebo groups was significant. The obese patients under Irvingia Gabonensis treatment also had a significant decrease of total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, and an increase of HDL-cholesterol."

Study # 2
Those who took the African Mango took it in the amount of 150mg twice a day and none of the participants followed any dietary instructions and all were told to maintain their previous activity levels. By the end of the study, those who were taking African Mango had lost an average of 28.2lbs. Those who were taking African Mango also found themselves naturally eating less. Those who were not taking the extract ate a mean amount of 3156 calories a day, while those taking African Mango ate a mean amount of 2767 calories a day.

Study # 3
Raspberry Ketone is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Morimoto and his colleagues tested to see the effects Raspberry Ketone would have on rats who were started on a high fat diet, or who had already had obesity induced by a high fat diet. Of the rats who were fed on only a high fat diet for 6 weeks to induce obesity and then the same diet with the introduction of Raspberry Ketone, their continued weight gain was slowed significantly and there was even some dramatic weight loss at the beginning of taking Raspberry Ketone.

Raspberry & Mango
The good Dr. “America’s Doctor”, holds an undergraduate degree from Harvard University and an MD and MBA from the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton school, respectively. He has published several books on the maintenance of good health. Since then, America's Dr. has been thrust into the limelight as the “go to” doctor for general health and wellness topics. Of all his aired episodes, his programs on fat loss and weight management have become the most talked about episodes on the internet. Of most mention was his episode titled “Fat Busting Metabolism Boosters”. On this show, America's Dr. featured several fat loss products that he believed were the most effective, healthy, and safe products on the market.
The show on "Fat Busting Metabolism Boosters" featured 5 products, each of which tended to be under-utilized in fat loss efforts. That is, until this show aired. Since then, each product has dramatically risen in popularity. Konjac Root Fiber, which is primarily Glucomannan, is a fat loss product that can help people eat less thereby aiding in weight loss efforts. Glucomannan has the uncanny ability to absorb water, thereby filling the user’s stomach. This helps to regulate appetite. Americas Dr. also featured “magic noodles” or Shirataki noodles. These noodles are similar to konjac root fiber in that they are a calorie free way to stop hunger in its tracks. Filling up on this calorie free noodle can help people make better food choices without the influence of hunger coloring their food choices. L-carnitine, one of the more popular products featured, works by burning fat cells as energy. This not only increases fat loss but it is also a healthy way to feel energized without the crash involved in caffeine supplementation. White Kidney Bean Extract, the only carbohydrate blocker featured on this episode, works but inhibiting the enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates. Excessive carbohydrate intake leads to increased weight gain so blocking their absorption is definitely advantageous.
The product that really caught our attention, however, is Raspberry Ketone. America's Dr. presented raspberry Ketone as the organic chemical responsible for the distinct aroma of raspberries. When synthesized and supplemented raspberry Ketone, America's Dr. suggests, has been shown to increase fat loss through a number of different pathways. Raspberry Ketone works by regulating glucose metabolism and by increasing fatty acid mobilization. Essentially, regulating glucose metabolism can decrease the production of insulin. Excessive insulin secretion has been linked to increased fat storage. Increasing fatty acid mobilization allows for a quick burning of fat stores for energy thereby decreasing body weight significantly. The effectiveness of raspberry Ketone has been shown in scientific studies and we truly believe that raspberry Ketone is the future of fat loss supplements. Raspberry Ketone side effects have not been presented in any scientific source and are believed to be safe and effective.
