The company marketing Raspberry Ketone ProSlim call it the “hottest new weight loss solution” and state use of the formulation can help users lose weight without the need for strict dieting or complex exercise regimens.
Raspberry ketone is a powerful ingredient that can deliver good results, so the claims may not be too outlandish, but the raspberry ketone in Raspberry Ketone ProSlim is mixed with a number of other ingredients, and the inclusion rates are unknown, so there is no guarantee the formulation will live up the marketing claims.

What is Raspberry Ketone ProSlim and how does it Work?
The official website states the formulation works by boosting the body’s adiponectin levels. This in turn should then boost the metabolism and regulate glucose levels. The site then makes the somewhat unusual claim that the elevated adiponectin levels cause body fat to be “sliced up within the cell”, thereby making it easier to burn. The increase in adiponectin is also claimed to provide appetite suppression.
The Raspberry Ketone ProSlim formulation contains six ingredients in unspecified quantities. Most of the ingredients do have merit and may contribute to the promised results, but in the end the outcome will be determined by the strength and quality of the blend. So if the inclusion rates are too low results will not be forthcoming.
- Raspberry ketone: The compound that provides raspberries with their distinctive aroma. Already a popular ingredient in cosmetic products, raspberry ketone gained favour as a weight loss provider after its potential was revealed by the American TV personality Dr Oz. The claims made on the Raspberry Ketone ProSlim website are true. Raspberry ketone can provide appetite suppression and improve fat burning abilities by boosting adiponectin levels, but this can only be achieved if a sufficient quantity is provided.
- Green tea: An extremely popular diet pill inclusion, and with good reason. Green tea is a natural thermogenic fat burner. It is also a very healthy ingredient that provides numerous antioxidants which can boost the health and offer protection from disease.
- African Mango: Another Dr Oz favourite, African mango is believed to help prevent glucose from being converted to fat and to be capable of stimulating thermogenic fat burning, but the credibility of some of the supportive studies has been questioned so more independent studies are much to be desired.
- Grapefruit: Provides a flavonoid called naringin that has been credited with metabolism boosting abilities, but some studies suggest any weight loss provided by naringin is probably due to the ingredient’s diuretic abilities causing a loss of body fluid.
- Apple Cider Vinegar: Possibly better as a salad dressing than a weight loss provider, apple cider vinegar is believed to assist the breakdown of fat, but further study is required.
- Resveratrol: An extract that is usually sourced from red grapes. Resveratrol is an antioxidant, so it can certainly be beneficial for the health, but its credentials as a fat burner cannot be supported by clinical evidence.
The Raspberry Ketone ProSlim website contains three positive testimonials that are attributed to satisfied customers who claim the product worked for them. Two of them state they got a flatter stomach, the other that he no longer felt embarrassed in the gym. There are no before and after photos. Needless to say customer feedback from a less biased source is much to be desired, but at the time of this review none was available.
Side Effects, Health Issues & Supplementary Information
The Raspberry Ketone ProSlim website’s FAQ page suggests people who are suffering from severe medical conditions seek medical advice before commencing supplementation. The same advice is offered to pregnant or nursing mothers.
Manufacture & Marketing
Raspberry Ketone ProSlim is only available via the official website, which is easy to navigate and has professional look, but the site provides no information about the company marketing the product and it is unclear if they are also responsible for the manufacturing process.
Product Pricing & Guarantee
Customers in the UK can expect to pay £59.95 for a month’s supply of pills, but bulk buy discounts are available. The best deal goes to customers who purchase a three month supply of pill for £179.85 and get a further three month’s supply of pills for free, but Raspberry Ketone ProSlim is still and expensive product.

There are just so many Raspberry Ketone diet pills on the market, we could produce a whole section on just this ingredient.
The range of quality is very vast from the fantastically good to the nightmarishly bad and everything in between. ProSlim is somewhere in between – however if you want something that is toward the fantastically good side then we recommend you look at Raspberry Ketone Plus from Evolution Slimming.
