Raspberry Ketones and Garcinia Cambogia are quite popular on the market as supplements for weight-loss. There are quite a number of products that feature either of these two ingredients. Quite interestingly, both ingredients are derived from fruits. As they are both natural ingredients, which one is more effective? As you will be presented with a lot of different brands featuring one of these elements, which one should you trust more? Read on to find out!
Ketones are chemical substances that often produce distinctive aromas. Raspberry Ketones used in various weight-loss supplement products are usually the ketones derived from red raspberries, kiwifruit, grapes, apples, peaches, as well as other berries, vegetables, and the bark of yew, pine, and maple trees. Raspberry Ketones are widely used as a fragrance or flavoring agent in foods, drinks, and cosmetics.
Besides that, Raspberry Ketones are also widely used for the supposed health benefits. People apply them to the skin to treat hair loss. Quite recently, some research in animals and test tubes shows that Raspberry Ketones may be able to increase metabolism rate. They do so by affecting the adiponectin hormone in the body, which can increase the speed at which the body burns fat and reduce appetite. However, the amount of reduced weight in the tests is somewhat marginal, and there is no reliable research about their effects on the human body yet.
Garcinia Cambogia, also known as Garcinia gummi-gutta, brindle berry, Malabar tamarind, and kudam puli, is a tropical fruit native to Indonesia. It looks like a small pumpkin, with green to pale yellow in color. Garcinia Cambogia itself has been used in various cooking in Southeast Asian countries.
It has been quite popular recently on the market and on the media for providing weight-loss effects. It does so by blocking the citrate lyase enzyme, which is used by the body to make fat. In addition, it also helps in reducing appetite. However, studies show that its effect on weight-loss is not very significant. It is only able to reduce weight by around 2 pounds to people who regularly consume it.
As you can see, both Raspberry Ketones and Garcinia Cambogia do not give so much of significance to weight loss. However, with the effects of preventing the body from absorbing more fat, along with the more convincing research, we recommend you to choose Garcinia Cambogia as a supplement in your diet. Anyhow, you still need to have some exercises regularly, and control your food intake.
