Raspberry ketone weight loss products are all the rage these days and some of the better raspberry ketone products available in the UK, such as the Raspberry Ketone Plus capsules produced by Evolution Slimming have gathered an impressive amount of positive customer feedback.
But can gum product such as Raspberry Ketone Skinny Gums really hope to compare with such powerful pills. GB Supplements must think so because their gums cost £38.99 per bottle—that’s nearly £20 more than a bottle of Evolution Slimming’s product, a price seems very steep for an unproven formulation that is new to the market and has attained next to no customer feedback at all.
Who Makes Raspberry Ketone Skinny Gums?
Raspberry Ketone Skinny Gums is marketed by GB Supplements. The registered office is in London and the company appears to have been trading since 2013
Advertised Benefits & Selling Points
According the sales page the main selling points are:
- Appetite Control
- Manufactured in the UK to GMP standard for Best Quality & Safety
- Free from Stimulants
- Great-tasting Raspberry Flavour
- Manufactured in the UK to GMP standards
The fact that Raspberry Ketone Skinny Gums are supposedly manufactured in the UK to GMP standards must be seen as a major selling point because it is mentioned twice in the same list. Either that or the page was put together in a hurry with little attention being paid to detail. The latter is probably the case because many aspects of the site suggest an amateur venture.
The only known ingredient is raspberry ketone. It is rich in health-boosting antioxidants and, in many cases the ingredient is sourced from raspberries, but it can be extracted from certain other fruits as well.
Raspberry Ketone weight loss products are very popular at the moment. Helped in part by a strong endorsement made on US TV by the weight loss expert Dr Oz. Kim Kardashian is also known to be a fan of raspberry ketone products, as is, former Emmerdale Farm star, Roxanne Pallette, but the popularity of the ingredients is also partly attributable to several successful clinical studies. Some studies indicate raspberry ketone can successfully supress the appetite, others show it improves the body’s ability to break down fat cells and suppress the accumulation of body fat.
In one study, conducted in Japan, mice were fed a diet of fatty foods over a period of several weeks. Some of the mice were also given raspberry ketone and the scientists discovered use of the compound coincided with a reduction of fat around the liver and other internal organs. In another study, this time conducted in Korea, rats were given daily doses of raspberry ketone and close monitoring revealed the compound allowed the rats to enhance secretion of adiponcetin—a hormone that facilitates lipolysis and prevents body fat accumulation.
One (2 gum) serving should be consumed half-an-hour before each of the three main meals of the day. An interval of at least four hours should be left between each dose and the maximum dose of six gums should never be exceeded in any 24-hour period.
The GB Supplements website provides one review that appears to have been left by a satisfied customer and dishes out generous portions of praise for Raspberry Ketone Skinny Gums and for GB Supplements products across the board. One review is insufficient to provide an accurate insight into what results the gums might offer and any review that comes from such a biased source can only be taken with a grain of salt.
Possible Side Effects
The sales page does not mention if side effects are likely to be an issue, but negative reactions cannot be ruled out because, although raspberry ketone is unlikely to present issues, other ingredients used in the formulation may not be so well tolerated. In the case of raspberry ketone tablets or capsules the only other ingredients would probably be a few binders and fillers. In the case of Raspberry Ketone Skinny Gums however, other ingredients must be involved to provide the gums with their chewy nature. What those ingredients are is anybody’s guess and the same can be said for the potential side effects that may or may not arise.
Pregnant or nursing mothers should not take Skinny Gums or any other supplement that has not been approved by their doctor. Anyone who is taking medication or has any health issues whatsoever should exert a similar degree of caution.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
Raspberry Ketone Skinny Gums are only available from the GB Supplements online store. Each bottle costs £38.99 and contains a sufficient supply of capsules to last 30 days. Shipping is free within the UK, but there is no money back guarantee.
As we have highlighted above Raspberry Ketone Plus from Evolution Slimming is arguably the market leader, especially when the UK and Europe is taken into to consideration.
Evolution Slimming are extremely proud of their product – as it pretty much set the standard for raspberry ketone products
