Looking for a raspberry ketone supplement?
In this aSquared Nutrition Raspberry Ketones review, you’ll learn about this product’s ingredients, potential health benefits, its pros and cons, and our assessment of it.
Product Ingredients/Supplement Facts
This product has a straight-forward formula. It contains:
- 1,000mg of pure raspberry ketones
Other ingredients include vegetable cellulose (capsule), rice flour, and silicon dioxide.
Potential Health Benefits
Ketones are most known for being found in raspberries, but they’re found in other fruits and berries as well. Ketones are part of what gives these fruits their strong aroma.
The science on raspberry ketones is still very much in its infancy. There are some studies that show minor benefits and some that show little to no benefit at all.
The only real studies we have to go by are test tube studies and studies done in animals.
In one study, mice were fed a high-fat diet and raspberry ketones. Researchers found that raspberry ketones “prevented the high-fat-diet-induced elevations in body weight”. Researchers concluded that raspberry ketones “prevents and improves obesity and fatty liver”. (1)
More research is needed to confirm these findings.
Raspberry ketones have been compared to capsaicin (found in hot red peppers) and synephrine (found in citrus plants
In a study done in obese patients, “significant differences” were seen in body weight, fat mass, lean mass, waist girth, hip girth, and energy levels between patients who received a supplement containing biotin compared to a placebo.
This may seem like a promising finding for raspberry ketones, but a “multi-ingredient supplement containing primarily raspberry ketone, caffeine, capsaicin, garlic, ginger and Citrus aurantium (Prograde Metabolism™ [METABO])” was used for this study. It’s not clear which ingredient promoted weight loss in the study’s subjects—it could have been one or more of the other ingredients.
Further high-quality research is needed on raspberry ketones in order to better understand it.

aSquared Nutrition Raspberry Ketones is this type of supplement that we like to feature here at Consumer’s Health Report. The reason being is that it’s a simple, straightforward formula that’s vegan-friendly, so it doesn’t exclude anyone from taking it.
By having just one active ingredient, it lets you try out raspberry ketones and get an idea if it’s effective for you or not. With other supplements that have multiple ingredients, you don’t know which ingredient(s) got you the results.
This supplement may not work out for you in the end, but it’s safe and reasonably priced, so trying it is not a big investment. As always though, speak with your doctor before taking any new health supplements.Sources
