Since its appearance on The Dr Oz Show there have been endless products being manufactured all using this one ingredient hoping to cash in on its popularity.
One of the latest products is Raspberry Ultra Drops, which despite using the proven ingredient has so far not made a good name for itself.
Unrealistic weight loss claims
First claims of weight losses of as much as 3lbs a day is not only unrealistic but also dangerous. To lose weight safely you really should not be losing more than 2lbs a week as any further weight is likely to be muscle mass.
There is also no mention of any ingredient dosages nor pictures of the label so thee is no way of knowing how much Raspberry Ketone is present.
This trick is commonly used when there is very little of the beneficial ingredient actually in the formula.
False advertising is rife
The manufacturer of Raspberry Ultra Drops used to sell another product called iHCG Pro Drops, which has now been banned by the FDA.
However the same fake testimonials have appeared on both product websites.
Reports of fraud
A quick look at Scambook, Facecrooks or ComplaintsBoard (popular scam and consumer advocate sites) will show the sheer number of complaints there have been against this product.
You would expect to read a few as no company is perfect yet these are not small claims as some complaints run into the thousands.
What is most worrying is the claim that the manufacturer of Raspberry Ultra Drops have been illegally hacking into their customers emails in order to send out advertisements to the friends on their address book.
For $69 you would expect a little more than a 2oz bottle, however this is all you will be getting for your money. No wonder so many people are annoyed.
Despite the popularity of Raspberry Ketones and its undoubted ability to aid with your weight loss efforts you still need to be wary of which product you choose to buy.
There are always going to be dubious companies looking to make a fast buck regardless of who they hurt.
For this reason you should always check to see what dosage of the beneficial ingredient has been used. Try to avoid products that use the term ‘proprietary blend’ as this is a known method of saying there is some of the ingredient without having to mention how much.
Raspberry Ketones can help you to lose weight but I would not recommend the use of Raspberry Ultra Drops. I would however recommend the use of Raspberry Ketone Plus, which contains the recommended daily allowance of 200mg of Raspberry Ketone.
Combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise you will be that one step closer to your ideal weight.
