Below we take an in-depth look at Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength to see whether it can aid weight loss.
Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength is a weight loss supplement that supposedly increased the consumer’s metabolic rate and aids body fat reduction.
Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength is manufactured by Healthy Natural Systems Global. There is very little information available about this company. Their official website merely states that their products are sold through GNC.com, and link to the sales page on the GNC website. There is a contact email, [email protected], but there is no phone number or company address listed.
Take one tablet two or three times daily with meals.
The manufacturers make the following claims about the benefits of this supplement:
They also provide the following information stating why their product is better than eating raspberries:
Burn fat with no side effects!
Raspberry Ketone 3x Triple Strength helps to block fat- by encouraging the body to use fat instead of storing it, which can help you lose weight. To get the amount of ketone in one of our 3x triple strength tablets you would need to eat 270 lbs or raspberries! Forget that! Taking just 1 tablet of hns® raspberry ketone 3x triple strength with meals is enough to get your body burning fat the way you want it to!
Raspberry Ketone has never been tested in humans for weight loss purposes, and so it is unknown whether the promising results seen in test tube studies and tests in rodents would be replicated when the ingredient is consumed orally, or even what dosage should be consumed.
Chromium appears to work consistently to help lower blood sugar levels, which is useful for anyone with pre-diabetic symptoms. This could lead to a tiny amount of weight loss in the long term, but the amounts provided in Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strengthare nowhere near enough to make even this tiny impact to the speed of weight loss.
There are two ingredients used in Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength, raspberry ketone and chromium. Despite only having two ingredients, there is the potential for the consumer to develop some side effects.
Raspberry ketone is an under-researched product, especially in the quantities found in supplements. Whilst it is considered safe for use in food in small doses, the higher doses used in supplements could cause jitteriness and other symptoms. Some users of raspberry ketone have reported feeling ‘weak’, restlessness, insomnia, chest pains, headaches and nausea. Some people have also had allergic reactions to raspberry ketone based supplements, with symptoms including itching, rashes, trouble breathing, and a racing heart-rate.
Chromium can lower blood sugars levels and as such should not be used by diabetics without first consulting their doctor. Low blood sugar levels can lead to lightheadedness, dizziness, and even fainting. Customers who have not eaten for several hours are more likely to experience these side effects.
Not suitable for those under the age of 18. Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or anyone who is suffering from a serious illness. Individuals who are allergic to raspberries or other ingredients in this product are advised against taking it. Not suitable for diabetics.
There are numerous customer reviews for Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength that have been left on gnc.com and amazon, two of the websites that sell the product.
I read the reviews and decided to try this product. When it didn’t work I tried to return and was told this is a 3rd party product. NOT a GNC product.
Of course they won’t take the return. Buyer beware!
Didn’t notice a thing. Followed all directions, took it twice a day. Combined with diet and exercise, and felt absolutely nothing! Last time I go off something seen on TV.
Not seeing any results yet. I have been taking these pills 3 x’s a day for a week now. I weighed myself 3 days ago, and scale says I have gained close to 2 pounds. These pills are not effective. I will try a few more days, and then will return for a full refund. At this point, I would not recommend product.
I think it was a waste of money. I have been taking this everyday three times a day for about two weeks now and I haven’t noticed a difference at all.
I started using this as a one month experiment to see if it’d help me tone my abdominal area I took two pills in the morning and two with my lunch. It actually made me gain weight I started off at 124 lb. 5’6 ft. and now I’m at 131 lb. I exercise 5 times a week for one or two hours and eat healthy. Don’t waste your money.
dont waste your money on these. I have seen absolutely no benefit.
I take these as they say. I take it with a meal and half way through my meal I can’t even finish it. I go to the gym everyday so this was not good for me. It made me not physically able to eat at all. I got very full but sick at the gym with nothing in my system. I only took it for 3 days. That was the only side effect. Did not make me jitter at all. If you are looking for something to suppress your appetite this is the product for you. But if you work out regularly than I suggest you not take this.
Took the pills, They did curb appetite, but gave me horrible acne. Do your research before you buy a rasberry ketone product.
I took about one of these pills before each meal for about 1 month and i noticed a difference. then i only needed to take 2 pills every morning from then on, i lost about 15 lbs in 2.5 months. I stopped taking them after awhile and i gained it back bc i started to slack on my eating habits. but i am buying more now.
This is a great product! I went from being a size 18W to a size 14. I ate what I wanted but used portion control. I did only eat fried foods once a week. I walked regularly.
This is my third bottle, it works, it works, it works. The product cuts my appetite, I even eat much smaller portions than usual. I adore this product and will order more. 263…243…221. Yes it works.
This product only gave me digestive issues and constipation. I will never ever ever ever buy this product again.
The clinical support for Raspberry Ketone is based upon studies in rats and test tubes, but no human studies. In theory, Raspberry Ketone could aid some weight loss, but there is no actual solid proof that the product will burn fat or raise the metabolism, as claimed by the manufacturers. The other ingredient used in this diet pill, Chromium, is present in such small quantities that it is not going to make any difference to weight loss. Even when supplemented in large quantities, Chromium still has a tiny impact upon weight loss, even when used over a prolonged period of time.
The customer reviews for this product are mixed, and many of the positive reviewers have noted that they followed calorie restricted diets and exercised whilst using the product, making it unclear whether it did aid weight loss or not. The product could have merely had a placebo effect, encouraging consumers to stick to their new, healthier habits.
Overall, we do not believe that this Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength will aid significant weight loss, increase the metabolism, or encourage fat burning.

Overall, we are not impressed by Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength; the product contains two ingredients; one has no clinical support from human studies, whilst the other is present in such tiny quantities that it will not make a difference to weight loss efforts.
The product is essentially an overpriced raspberry ketone supplement. It is not covered by a money back guarantee; GNC describe their returns policy as a money back guarantee, but they do not accept opened or used products.
Overall, we do not recommend Healthy Natural Systems Raspberry Ketone Triple Strength as it is not an effective weight loss aid.
