Raspberry Ketone Plus

Raspberry Ketones are hot news at the moment and looks set to take over from Acai Berry as the latest fat burning supplement. Raspberry Ketone Plus is a supplement that claims to harness the previously hidden powers of the Raspberry Ketone.

Like Acai Berry, Raspberry Ketone has hit the headlines after appearing on Fox News and the popular Dr Oz Show. We look to see if weight loss is possible with Raspberry Ketones or if it’s the usual marketing hype over the next so called superfruit!

Raspberry Ketone Plus Pros

  • Manufactured by established UK company
  • Contains 200mg of Raspberry Ketones
  • Vegetarian friendly capsules

Raspberry Ketone Plus Cons

  • Most ingredients not enough quantities
  • Money back guarantee only on unopened bottles

Raspberry Ketone Plus Review

Raspberry Ketone Facts

  • Raspberry Ketones are enzymes found in red raspberries
  • Featured on Dr Oz Show in 2012 where Raspberry Ketones were named “Miracle Fat Burner in a Bottle”
  • Works by triggering Adiponectin hormone

We started our review of Raspberry Ketone Plus by contacting the leading supplier of Raspberry Ketone Plus, Evolution Slimming.

Similar to when we last contacted Evolution, they were keen to highlight the benefits of their Raspberry Ketone supplement over others on the market, explaining why their Raspberry Ketone Plus supplement was one of the hottest weight management supplements on the market.

We arranged for a sample to be sent to us so we can take a look for ourselves.

Raspberry Ketones are very popular at the moment, causing supplements to sell out in the US, we looked a little deeper at the evidence to see why you should consider this supplement.

Raspberry Ketone Plus Concerns

  • Sufficient Raspberry Ketones but insufficient amounts of most of the remaining ingredients
  • May be expensive for a raspberry ketone only supplement
  • 30-day money-back guarantee only applies to unopened bottles

What Does Raspberry Ketone Plus Claim To Do?

A number of trusted sources (such as Wikipedia) report that Raspberry Ketones can:

prevent high-fat-diet-induced elevations in body weight

Evolution Slimming claim that Raspberry Ketone Plus:

…is the hottest new weight management supplement with 8 super ingredients. Incredible 100mg of Raspberry Ketone per pill. Just the strength you need to see results!

So What Is Raspberry Ketone Plus?

You are right in thinking that Raspberry Ketones are found in raspberries, in fact they are natural compounds that are responsible for the heavenly aroma of red raspberries. It is only recently have they been discovered to contain potent fat burning abilities and caused a stir in the weight loss and health industry!

Raspberry ketones found in red raspberriesYou’ve probably thinking (we certainly were!) instead of taking a supplement, why not simply eat a handful of red raspberries each day?

The fact is you would need to consume 90 pounds of red raspberries each day to get the 100mg of Raspberry Ketones to promote fat burning. So a supplement that provides the recommended daily dose of 200mg of Raspberry Ketones is the only way!

Whilst containing potentially enough Raspberry Ketones and African Mango extract in this supplement this can’t be said for the remaining 6 ingredients. There are tiny amounts of Green tea extract, acai berry, Resveratrol and caffeine for example. It’s unlikely there is sufficient amounts to exert any meaningful effect.

What Are The Ingredients For Raspberry Ketone Plus?

Raspberry Ketone Plus contains the recommended amount of Raspberry Ketones to promote fat burning, along with 7 other ingredients that are high in antioxidants.

  • Raspberry Ketones (100mg): Increases activity of Adiponectin hormone, important in regulating glucose levels and fatty acidcatabolism. Adiponectin levels are inversely correlated with your body fat percentage.
  • African Mango 36:1 Extract (Equivalent of 1000mg Mango Fruit): African Mango Extract lost around 28lbs during the 10 weeks, resulting on average a 3.2% reduction in their body fat.
  • Acai Berry Extract 4:1 25.00 (Equivalent of 100mg Acai Fruit): Acai has 10 times the antioxidant power of red grapes and been shown to promote cardiovascular and digestive health. Very little acai in this supplement even though its an extract so questionable the benefit found with this ingredient
  • Green Tea Extract (25mg) – Can boost energy levels and contains lots of antioxidants benefit for health. There is very little green tea in this supplement though and so questionable if any benefit could be seen, if any!
  • Apple Cider Vinegar Powder (25mg) – Touted as a medical aid for a variety of ailments, from cancer prevention to alleviation of joint pain to weight loss.
  • Kelp (25mg) – Boosts thyroid activity which aids in maintaining a healthy metabolism.
  • Grapefruit Pectin (25mg) – Soluble fiber that has powerful detoxifying and health properties.
  • Resveratrol 98% (10mg) – Proven to contribute to better cardiovascular health. There are a whole host of other claims for Resveratrol including being an antioxidant.
  • Caffeine BP (25mg): Can boost energy levels and metabolism although only short-term effects. Considering there is only 50mg per daily serving in this supplement (less than caffeine in 1/2 cup of medium coffee) then its questionable if much, if any, effect would be noticeable

So What Does All This Mean?

Raspberry Ketone Plus is a supplement that contains a number of ingredients, many of which are superfruits high in antioxidants, that are clinically proven to boost and maintain a healthy metabolism. However, only Raspberry Ketones and African Mango extract are in sufficient quantities to exert any meaningful effect. The remaining ingredients are in too small amounts likely to do anything.

All the ingredients are natural and vegetarian friendly and do not cause any negative side effects.

Does Raspberry Ketone Plus Have Any Side Effects?

Raspberry Ketone is 100% natural and is non-toxic when taken in the recommended dosages specified here. There are unlikely to be side effects from taking Raspberry Ketones.

There is a small quantity of caffeine, equivalent to a very mild to moderate cup of coffee, even still if you are very sensitive (and we mean very) then you may wish to avoid this supplement.

Any Raspberry Ketone Plus Reviews From Customers?

Although Evolution Slimming claim that Raspberry Ketone Plus is one of their top sellers. On the official website there are plenty of reviews to support this claim.

So Does Raspberry Ketone Plus Work?

Research has confirmed a direct link between levels of the hormone Adiponectin and body fat percentage. This is important as individuals with a high body fat typically contain less Adiponectin compared to thin individuals who have higher levels of Adiponectin.

Simply stated, higher adiponectin = lower levels of body fat.

Raspberry ketone has shown to significantly increase the amount of Adiponectin, meaning it could prove to be an effective fat burning and health supplement.

Where Can I Buy Raspberry Ketone Plus?

You can buy Raspberry Ketone Plus from Evolution Slimming website who stocks many of the popular diet pills on the market.

One bottle of 60 tablets costs $47 reduced from $63. Better value can be had by ordering the 2 or 3 month packages, helping to reduce the per bottle cost to a fantastic $36 (just over a $1 per day).

What about A Guarantee?

There is a 30-day money-back guarantee but only applies to unopened bottles unless bottles are damaged or faulty.

Watchdog Verdict

There are a growing number of Raspberry Ketone supplements appearing on the market thanks to media exposure. Whilst Raspberry Ketones may offer an excellent way to increase fat burning as well as supplying lots of antioxidants, they are unlikely to be as effective as a multi-ingredient supplement with the right amounts.

Raspberry Ketone Plus can be used without changes to your lifestyle but as with most dietary supplements will be most effective when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Although there is nothing wrong with this supplement, other than Raspberry Ketone the remaining ingredient amounts are tiny and unlikely to have much impact on your waistline.

If you are looking for a quality supplement that contains the recommended serving of Raspberry Ketones then this supplement may be a good choice.

    Yes some claim to be safe but people tend to forget with certain medications that grapefruit cannot be taken , mainly in blood pressure medicine.

  2. Rob says:

    Raspberry Ketones is a great product…

  3. Cheese lover says:

    Is this just a fad diet pill riding on the latest media news? keen to try but am undecided on these “superfruit” pills or whether to go for fat burner… please adviced?

    • admin says:

      Thanks “Cheese lover” for your comment. As Rob above says, Raspberry Ketones are a great product, its popular also because its free from side effects and proven to work. Whilst there are a growing number of Raspberry Ketone supplements on the market we regard this one to be one of the better ones.
      If you are looking for a slightly stronger fat burner then something like Acai Plus Extreme maybe worth considering.

  4. Angie says:

    I just bought this and hope it works and that my husband doesn’t find out I spend money! I really appreciate this site especially I don’t know anything about diet pills and several of the ones I was considering were watchdog rejected. So I am so glad I came across your site.

  5. J Muise says:

    I purchased this product for my husband, one who is not for taking weight loss supplements but needed to lose weight. All I can say is that he asked me to purchase another bottle when he saw the results he got from the first bottle.We were both pleased !!

  6. SH Clark says:

    I have been taking this product for 2 months now and I must say I am loosing it and fast. And the best part about it is that I have not really changed my diet except for cutting back on the coffee and fried foods. But that is now once in a while instead of eating fast food and drinking coffee almost everyday.

  7. carol forsyth says:

    I got these capsules and been on them for 2 weeks and have only lost 2lb,am i the only one dissapointed with same. Can you advise me why?

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi Carol,
      We notice you put “slimtone plus” for the URL of your comment. If so, then you should be aware that this Raspberry Ketone Plus product from Evolution Slimming is NOTHING to do with the product you mentioned. Although they do use the “raspberry ketone” ingredient (like many diet pills at the moment), they have completely different set of ingredient profile, including a different approach to consumer care. For one Evolution Slimming DO NOT use free trials and have a money-back guarantee.
      We would be interested to know which product you are referring to, so if you can clarify that would be most useful.
      Kind regards,
      Diet Pills Watchdog Team.

      • mira says:

        why shpuld you not buy the free trails for?

        • Watchdog Team says:

          Hi Mira,
          The reason being that most diet pill products that use “free trials” end up signing you into what’s called a continual payment authority that can be VERY difficult to get out of. Once such companies have your credit card details they charge each month (typically starting 14 days after you sign up) until you either manage to get through to their customer support and they cancel or you have a nice bank assistant that stops further payments.
          If you have a look at our “consumer reports” section you will see most of the complaints we receive are from consumers feeling they have been scammed with “free trials”.
          We hope this is is sufficient explanation?

  8. tg says:

    hi. i have been taking this product for 16 days i have only lost i have to change my diet? can u pls advise me? thank you.

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi tg,
      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Can we confirm is that 0.9g or 0.9kg though? In either case, especially if you have lost less than 1g! this is rather disappointing.
      Consumers have reported to us varied results with some products, and its a fact that some products will work better for some than others. The best results are achieved when changes in diet and exercise occur.
      In any case most diet supplements that take a healthy approach to weight loss will suggest eating a healthy diet, in some cases a calorie-controlled diet, alongside some regular exercise. This is useful as it means you don’t have to keep taking diet tablets as when you reach you target weight you can more easily maintain the new diet and exercise.

        Pls I also want to get this drug. But I don’t know how to go about it. I am in nigeria, pls I really need your help

  9. Ann says:

    I have been taking the Raspberry Ketone Plus for 3 weeks along with the colon cleanse, and I have only lost 2lbs – very disappointed to be honest. I have cut back on eating bread, spuds and crisps etc and done a bit of walking, but quite disappointed with the results. Evolution Slimming have given me support when I asked for help though.

    • Nicole Galbraith says:

      I have also found the same, i have taken them for a month and not lost any weight, i have recently joined the gym as well. On the plus side i am not as hungry through the day but i did think i would see results??

      • Clinical Exercise Physiologist says:

        Hi Girls,

        There’s no substantial clinical evidence that Raspberry Ketones is effective as a weight loss supplement. There have only been few studies done and not one done on humans. Read this evidenced based review of RK’s marketing claims.

  10. Donna says:

    Do i have to take them instead of food?

  11. Jodi says:

    I have been taking raspberry ketone plus for almost a month now and have noticed a considerable weight loss. I try to stay away from the scales and mainly focus on how my clothes fit and how much healthier I feel. I am very optimistic and have reordered already. However, I have been very cold since I have been taking the suppliment. I have read where you would normally feel hot. Why have I had the opposite effect?

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi Jodi,
      Thanks for keeping us updated with your progress. We have not heard of anyone feeling “cold” whilst taking the supplement but will get in touch with the merchant and see what their feedback is. You could also contact them yourself of course as we know from experience they are very good with customer support. As soon as we hear anything we will post the reply.
      Thanks,Diet Pills Watchdog Team

  12. Kay says:

    Can you use Raspberry Ketones if you are on the contraceptive pill? Does it make the pill less effective?

  13. Ellie warriner says:

    Can u take these pills with my thyroid medication? I have an under active thyroid and take thyroxine everyday?

  14. Ash says:

    Can you all confirm that you followed the directions on the bottle (take one mid morning and one tablet mid afternoon) or did you just take one every morning and then the elite cleanse in the evening?

  15. Sahara says:

    Can you take raspberry ketone plus and acai plus together?

  16. G says:

    What happens when you stop taking the tablets? How long is it recommended you take them for.

  17. Marie says:

    Can you confirm which pill will loost the most weight the quickest between the Raspberry Ketone Plus and the Acai Plus+ Extreme. Because there website says to take the Raspberry Ketone Plus when i fill in my details, but i saw you recommend the other one higher and I’m getting a little confused which is the newer product and will have the best results for me. Thank you

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi Marie,

      Both of these products appear on our “approved” list which means they pass our ratings criteria. As such they are likely to be as equally effective as each other and we have had reports back from consumers who have seen results with both products. The Raspberry Ketone plus is a slightly newer product and we know it is very popular with consumers so this might be worth trying out?

      Hope this helps, if you need further advice then let us know :)

    I have been taking raspberry ketone as well as aciaberry with green tea tablets for over 1 week.. Quite disappointed, not saw a change in weight..

  19. Lindsay says:

    Hi I ordered my raspberry Ketone us on Thursday and recieved them on Friday. I also ordered the detox plus I’m taking both together is thy okay? Also when taking the tablets I’m I to take them to replace food? Or can you eat with them as well?

  20. Tina M. says:

    Hello, my husband orderd the liquid form of this and it has basically the same ingredients.
    Proprietary Raspberrt Ketone Blend 160mg
    Raspberry Ketone, African Mango Extract(Irvingia Gabonensis), Acai Fruit, Green Tea Extract, Resveratrol. Caffeine, Anhydrous, Apple Cider Vinegar (powder), Kelp, Grapefruit(powder) Also inactive Ingredients:Water, 20% USP Grade Alcohol

    My question, is this the same as what you are talking about only in a liquid form. I have trouble swallowing pills so we found this in liquid form will it work just as well?
    Thank you.

  21. twiglet says:

    I just can’t get my head around the fact that this site has a forum with about 300 posts on it from anguished people who have literally been robbed by these companies, and then there is this page, advocating these prodcuts! Unbelievable!

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi Twiglet,
      There is a real difference between companies who offer a raspberry ketone supplement (like these guys) and those offering a so called “free trial”. The majority of consumers ( we have seen around 99% ) who have complained about products with this ingredient are frustrated about being misled into an auto-billing programme that can be difficult to get out of. Evolution Slimming, the manufacturer of this supplement, DO NOT use this practise and only charge you for the product you purchase at the time.
      There has been a lot of confusion about this point, but consumers should be aware of the fact that Raspberry Ketone is an ingredient and NOT the product name.
      We hope this clears this up?
      Kind regards,
      Diet Pills Watchdog Team

  22. Sian Morris says:

    Be careful some sites offer free 2 week trial then send you 4 weeks and charge a hell of alot of money for the extra 2 weeks, I have had to pay postage to receive now again to return and have had no free trial, this has now put me of buying these because I hate to be conned of my hard earned money

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi Sian,
      Thank you for highlighting this. We should stress that this product/merchant DO NOT auto-bill or auto-ship each month and is a one-off sale.
      If you’re paying as little as a few pounds or dollars for a supplement then you have to question how the merchant is making a profit.
      Kind regards,
      Diet Pills Watchdog Team

  23. sue says:

    please be aware that grapefruit is in the product too. if you are epileptic you should not /must not eat grapefruit as with those you have hight blood pressure. it interferes with the medication. just because things are natural does not mean they are safe! irrelevant if they work or not.

  24. jay says:

    Also purchased the Raspberry Ketone Plus from Evolution slimming along with two other members of my family for a famlily wedding, we all eat well balanced meals as is, and exercised with the product, very disappointed that after one month, our combined weightloss was a mere 5lbs just under 2 lbs each. I am amazed your promoting this product to be honest

  25. Lyn says:

    Please could you tell me company

    Also how can I order free trial pack?

    • Watchdog Team says:

      Hi Lisa,
      Evolution Slimming the company who produce this supplement do not offer “free trial” packs. They do offer deals and better value bundles that can save you money though.
      In terms of “which one is best for me” we would suggest taking a look at the supplements in our approved list.
      Kind regards,

  31. linda says:

    I have just purchased super ketones and aloe ferox as suggested they work better together at a small trial price however the normal price after 14 days of which my card will be charged is £75 a month. I,m a bit scared to take them they do me some harm.what advice can you give me?.

  32. Liz says:

    Why are you not replying to questions about wether it’s safe to take with medical problems such as thyroid disorders

    • Watchdog Team says:

      Dear Liz,
      We are unable to find any previous question from you regarding this supplement, did you email us?
      In answer to your question though, as with most dietary supplements if you have a pre-existing medical condition and/or are taking prescription medication you are advised to seek medical advise before taking. Any supplement manufacturer who doesn’t give clear and concise guidelines and advice we would question how ethical they are.
      Evolution Slimming who manufacturer this supplement can offer advice if you contact them directly, but its likely to be the same.
      Unfortunately this is a question we cannot answer and requires discussing with your local GP.
      Kind regards,

    this company is a con it tells u its a free trail then takes 160 pounds from u be ware do not but

    • Watchdog Team says:

      Hi Steve,
      You are thinking of companies that promote different products to this one. Raspberry Ketone is the INGREDIENT and not the supplement name. This supplement from Evolution Slimming do not re-bill customers using a continual payment authorisation (so called “free trials”). We trust this clarifies your statement.
      Kind regards,

    • Watchdog Team says:

      Dear Elizabeth,
      From your post it does sound like you have signed up for a “free trial” and from our knowledge the company behind this supplement doesn’t operate such promotions. You may wish to confirm the supplement name as this is unlikely to be one you are referring too.
      Kind regards,

  37. Robert Willis says:

    I saw the ad for a free trial of superkeytone plus, the web page does say in the top right corner that it is a free bottle. The order was made on 26th Sept. They took £79:95 from my account on 10th Oct. I have contacted them by phone and they stated that they do not advertise it as a free bottle and that the T & Cs state you have 14 days to cancel the subscription if not happy. The 14 days start the day of the order and the 15th day is when they take the money. Am now off to the bank to ensure no more money comes out of my account.
