Below we take an in-depth look to see how effective T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum really is at aiding weight loss.
T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum is a liquid diet supplement that promises ‘Faster Absorption Rates and Quicker Results’. The product is described as a high potency blend that will provide a natural energy boost, stimulate thermogenesis and boost the metabolism.
The product is manufactured by Biogen Health Science, but is no longer available directly from their website, suggesting that the product has been discontinued. The product is available from amazon, and stocks may be limited.
Biogen Health Science is a British company based in Hertfordshire. Customers who have any questions can contact them using the details found on their official website.
Directions for use are not listed on the sale page, but are apparently detailed on the bottle. The product should be held under the tongue, and any excess swallowed after 30 seconds or so.
The bottle lists the following benefits for this fat burning and detox serum:
The sales page for T5 Raspberry Ketone does not provide an ingredients list at all. However, in the questions section of the page, one consumer has provided the ingredients list that is on the bottle. Unfortunately no ingredient quantities have been listed; this could be an omission by the consumer, or the bottle may not list any ingredient quantities at all.
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.
Caffeine is known to boost the metabolism for a few hours after consumption, and may have a very mild effect upon the appetite, although this is short lived. The product contains both caffeine as a separate ingredient, and green tea, which naturally contains some caffeine. Green tea also contains a variety of catechins. Some of these, especially EGCG have been linked with increased thermogenesis in the body. Thermogenesis is the creation of heat which burns calories in the process, and so could contribute to weight loss efforts.
Bitter orange extract is a stimulant ingredient that will increase the metabolism; it appears to be the strongest ingredient used in T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum. When combined with caffeine, as it is in this supplement, the effects of both are amplified.
If the ingredients list provided by a consumer is accurate, there are numerous potential side effects that could occur whilst using T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum. Because we do not know the ingredient quantities, it is impossible to establish just how likely it is that any of these side effects will occur.
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.
Side effects associated with the use of Bitter Orange include increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, and even heart attack and stroke in healthy patients. The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding use of Bitter Orange and its extracts because in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the pay-off of some weight loss that could be achieved using other means. Consumers should remember that the effects of the stimulants found in Bitter Orange are enhanced when combined with caffeine.
Significant quantities of caffeine can cause side effects such as headaches, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations and problems sleeping. Green tea and guarana are also sources of caffeine. Green tea can also cause constipation.
Not intended for use by persons younger than 18 or by those with a serious medical condition. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. Please consult your physician before using this product. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulant ingredients. Not suitable for anyone with high blood pressure, or any other cardiac-related health issues.
There are literally hundreds of customer reviews for this product on amazon. Below we have selected some of the verified customer reviews of the product.
I have been using this product for five days now and have already lost 4.5 lb! Although I have been eating a calorie controlled diet, aiming for 1500 a day, and exercising every other day, I have also had a couple of very unhealthy meals too – so I am very impressed! The reason for four stars is that I have not noticed that much of an impact on my appetite as such, however I do find it eases my cravings, and it also tastes pretty foul! However, I find it is a small price to pay for the results. I would definitely recommend.
Tastes vile and I can put up with most things.
Didn’t really work at all.
Seriously i have been losing weight on my own for a while now and I thought I could use this to make the weight lose go faster, but all it did was add the weight back on. Not to mention the awful taste the thing has And it’s not as if it had difficult instructions to read !!!!!!
I have taken this product as instructed and I have not lost any weight, in fact I’ve gained two stone since taking the product. It gives you a little bit more energy in the gym, however, I’m not impressed with this product it hasn’t made me lose weight hasn’t toned me up, its been useless.
Please be careful when you buy. I only found out when I had brought it I couldn’t use it at all due to my hyperthyroidism. It’s I’m that much of a small print I took it and ended Ill it wasn’t till I really looked I saw the small print
I’d say if your planning on losing weight … consult your doctor if you are thinking of using this stuff. As I found out that it affected metabolism, hormone, liver/kidney function which also affected my heart … irregular heart beats, palpitations.
it did nothing for me, so was a waste of money in my opinion, followed the instructions to the letter
Taken this religiously and what a waste of money! Did not suppress my hunger and haven’t lost a pound…except the 20 I stupidly paid for it…
The use of stimulant ingredients such as bitter orange and several sources of caffeine suggests to us that the product could aid weight loss by increasing the body’s metabolic rate. However, no individual ingredient quantities are known, and so it is possible that this product could be ineffective from low doses, or on the other end of the scale, too strong and therefore highly likely to cause side effects.
Raspberry Ketone, the main ingredient in this weight loss serum, has never been tested in humans, and so there is no conclusive research to suggest that it could aid weight loss when taken orally. Green tea does have lots of clinical support, but its effectiveness is limited, and it is unknown how much of the extract used in T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum is catechins, EGCG or caffeine, the three main active components of the ingredient.
The customer reviews available are mixed, but there are plenty of customers who are unhappy with the product, having noticed no weight loss whilst using the product.
Considering that the manufacturers do not even reveal the ingredients list on the sales page, and provide no ingredient quantities, we believe that this product is not a very strong or effective weight loss aid, and that its sales are based upon dramatic marketing claims.
On amazon this product is sold on numerous different sales pages, in differing bulk quantities.
A single bottle costs £11.99, whilst two bottles cost £17.99. Three bottles costs £24.99 and an order of six bottles costs £38.99. Delivery charges may apply.
T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum is no longer available from the manufacturer’s official website.
T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum is not covered by any money-back guarantee.
Overall, we are not impressed by T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum at all. There is so much necessary information about the product that is simply missing from the sales pages, including the ingredients list, ingredient quantities, potential side effects and health warnings; this is not acceptable at all, as this information is required to make an informed decision when purchasing a diet pill.
There are numerous customer complaints about the product’s lack of effectiveness, and even some of the most highly rated customer reviews we could find stated that whilst they noticed an energy boost, they were not convinced that the product had helped them to lose any weight.
Customers have also received products that were out of date upon arrival; this suggests that either the third party retailer that is selling the product on amazon is incredibly unprofessional, or that the product is no longer being manufactured, and old stock is being sold off at a low price.
There is no money-back guarantee for T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum. It is also no longer available on the official manufacturer’s website, giving credibility to the idea that this product has been discontinued and only old stock is still available.
Overall, we do not recommend T5 Raspberry Ketone Serum to our readers.
