Anti-obesity effect of raspberries

Raspberry ketone is said to prevent obesity. This active ingredient is in raspberries. The Department of Medical Biochemistry, Ehime University School of Medicine has conducted research into this. The study was done on mice.


Different groups of mice were fed a fatty diet for 10 weeks. The mice were also fed Raspberry Ketone in different amounts: 0.5% 1% or 2%.

The groups of mice were then fed the same diet with 1% Raspberry Ketone for 6 weeks.


Raspberry ketone went against body weight gain and weight in the liver and fatty tissue.

Raspberry ketone worked preventively against:

  • Weight gain from a diet high in fat
