Proponents of Raspberry Ketones as a weight-loss aid base their claims on the compound’s ability to increase circulating levels of adiponectin, a hormone secreted from adipose tissue that plays a key role in carbohydrate and fat oxidation that also may exert anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic, and antiatherogenic effects. In humans, low circulating levels of adiponectin are linked… Continue reading Why Raspberry Ketones?
