Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is not shy about calling out the purported benefits of its Raspberry Ketones supplement, claiming that taking two capsules a day gives the nutritional bang of eating 90 pounds of fresh raspberries. And what are those benefits? Well, they pull back a little here noting that research is still ongoing but they raspberry ketones may help support a weight loss strategy when combined with exercise and a healthy diet. How does Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Raspberry Ketones rate in the competitive world of dietary supplements? Read our review below and decide for yourself.
The only active ingredient in this product is 125 mg of raspberry ketones per capsule. This product is aimed at those who need a boost in their efforts to lose weight but is not a replacement for a healthful diet and regular exercise. Rather, it’s an adjunct to them.
The recommendation is to take one capsule twice a day, one with lunch and the other capsule with dinner.
Possible Side Effects
We did not find any reports of side effects for this supplement but, as always, it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing or by anyone under the age of 18 years. As with any weight loss supplement, it’s best to speak to a doctor before using.
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Raspberry Ketones comes in at a cost that is middle of the road in this category. At the time of our review, a purchase of a 90-capsule bottle from the manufacturer’s website cost $29.95.
The manufacturer does not seem to offer a guarantee or a return/refund policy so there is no way for a prospective customer to try it out risk-free.
Conclusion of Our Hi-Tech Pharmaceutical Raspberry Ketones Review
Research has shown that raspberry ketones are safe and some research has indicated they can be effective in supporting a weight loss program that includes a reasonable diet and regular physical activity that gets you moving and your heart pumping. Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Raspberry Ketones focuses on the science behind its product, throwing in “sciency” sounding terms like the ” 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl) butan-2-one” (the scientific name for for the flavor/aroma aspect of raspberry ketones and the fact that raspberry ketones “contain both a hydroxyphenyl ring and a ketone structure”. But frankly, it’s not very convincing and not explained particularly well. While we like the fact that the product contains just pure raspberry ketones and is fairly affordable, the missing refund policy
While we like the fact that the product contains just pure raspberry ketones and is fairly affordable, the missing refund policy is a warning flag for us, an indicator of the company not having confidence in the effectiveness of its own product or, perhaps, not having the resources for customer service and returns processing. For our money, we would rather go with a company that gives us the option to return its product for a refund, even if we pay a little more.
