On the show, Dr. Oz touted over-the-counter raspberry ketone supplements…
as a “miracle fat-burner in a bottle.” More specifically, ketone supplements are concentrated doses of the chemical in raspberries that causes their distinct aroma.
The substance has been approved by the FDA as “generally safe” since 1965, but ketones are experiencing a surge in popularity thanks to several recent studies analyzing their ability to burn stored fat.
“With ketone your body metabolically will go in the direction you want it to go in,” Dr. Oz said on the show. “I’m hoping this will get you over the hump to weight loss, and you use it for that purpose, not as a miracle pill.”
