Raspberry Ketone Optimal Dosage for Humans

Raspberry Ketone Supplements

Raspberry Ketone supplements have become increasingly popular since Dr. Oz mentioned them on his show touting them as a fat burner in a bottle.  Since last year, the number of products containing this supplement ingredient has skyrocketed.

For those who’re considering taking raspberry ketone supplements, it should first be noted that to date, there has not been a single study which shows that they actually do work to promote weight loss in humans.  Instead all of the current research on raspberry ketone supplements suggests that they help prevent weight gain and fat accumulation in rats who’re fed a high fat diet.

Raspberry Ketone Dosage

In the few rodent studies available, the rats/mice were fed dosages ranging from 0.5 to 2% of their body weight with a dose response relationship demonstrated.   i.e. the rodents fed the higher dosages demonstrated better results.

When it comes to adapting doses from rodent models, the generally accepted method is simply not to adjust the weight difference on a mg/kg basis from rats to humans.  Rather, other factors such as the differences in body surface area are also taken into account.

For humans, the typical dosage based on these calculations work out to a range from 50 mg to 200 mg per day.

Raw Food Diet Overview?

Over the past few years, one diet that’s become increasingly popular is the Raw Food Diet.  While some will say that the raw diet or raw food diet as it’s alternately referred to is simply a passing fad, others will take offense to that statement.  Raw foodies as they call themselves are very passionate about their meal plans.  For them, eating raw food has more than simple health benefits or connotations as the raw food experience encapsulates more of a lifestyle choice as well as a philosophical belief system.

Raw foodies will often suggest that cooking food destroys many of the nutrients that are inherently present in food.  As well, they’ll point to the potential dangers of cooked and processed food throwing around terms like ‘toxins’ which can damage your body.

Is this just another passing fad or is there some merit to the raw food diet?
