Flawless Raspberry Ketone Review
Makers of Flawless Raspberry Ketone claim it’s the secret to dropping unwanted pounds.
Flawless Raspberry Ketone is supposedly an all-natural appetite suppressant with premium-grade raspberry ketone that not only promotes weight loss but overall health as well.
I wanted to find out if this supplement really works, so I dug a little deeper to find out.
Is the Formula Effective?
Flawless Raspberry Ketone has 5 ingredients. However, the amount of each ingredient included in the formula is not given.
Raspberry ketone is a chemical found in raspberries used to increase metabolism and trigger weight loss.
The structure of raspberry ketone is similar to capsaicin and synephrine. These compounds are known to alter the metabolism. 
Subsequently, researchers observed rats for 11 weeks to see if raspberry ketone offered similar fat burning results. The study showed raspberry ketone improved obesity and increased metabolism. 
Animal studies are promising, but experts agree human testing needs to be observed to confirm raspberry ketone’s effect on weight loss.
African Mango, also known as irvingia gabonensis, is an effective metabolism booster and appetite suppressant.
During a 10 week study on 72 overweight subjects, irvingia gabonensis caused significant weight loss and lowered cholesterol, even without diet and exercise. 
Despite acai’s popularity, there are few human tests involving the acai berry, so little is known about its weight loss potential
In one pilot study, 10 overweight subjects did see lower cholesterol after eating acai berries, but no other benefits were observed. 
Green tea is high in catechins, which are antioxidants known for their health benefits.
Additionally, green tea contains caffeine which reduces and controls weight when taken in large amounts. 
A study conducted on men and woman over a 12 week period shows green tea promotes weight loss, and lowers cholesterol. 
Resveratrol is an antioxidant known to reduce signs of aging and protect against free radical damage. In a 12 week animal study, experts found resveratrol lowered cholesterol and protected the heart. 
Unfortunately, there aren’t many human studies relating to resveratrol; therefore more human evidence needs to be produced before results can be confirmed.
What Customers Think
On FlawlessRaspberry.com there is a tab labeled “Success Stories.” But, when you click on the tab, there are no success stories from consumers. Rather, there is only an in-depth description of Flawless Raspberry Ketone. Because the site doesn’t list any customer reviews, I feel skeptical about Flawless Raspberry Ketone’s performance.
Furthermore, there aren’t many reviews provided third-party sites. The few consumers who have reviewed Flawless Raspberry Ketone didn’t see any weight loss results. One even called it a “scam.”
How to Take Flawless Raspberry Ketone
The makers of Flawless Raspberry Ketone do not explain how to take their product for the best results.
One bottle is a month’s supply, and each bottle contains 60 capsules. This implies taking 2 capsules a day. When is best to take them, and whether diet and exercise is required is unknown.
Who Makes Flawless Raspberry Ketone
Flawless Raspberry Ketone is manufactured by Lead Seeker LLC. The business started in April 2012. Since the company was founded, 71 complaints have been filed against Lead Seeker LLC.
Due to the many complaints, the Better Business Bureau considers Lead Seeker LLC’s health and result claims on their products to be unsubstantiated.
Things to Watch Out For
There are a few things you should know before buying Flawless Raspberry Ketone.
Because the product is new, there are no recorded side effects. However, there are many side effects associated with the individual ingredients.
• Sleep problems
• Irregular heartbeat
• Increased blood pressure
The 14 Day Trial
There is a 14 day trial available for Flawless Raspberry Ketone.
It starts the day of the order and includes shipping time. If the 1 trial bottle (1 month’s supply) is not returned in the 14 days, customers are charged $87.63. If no action is taken after that, customers will receive a new bottle every month and will be charged $87.63 plus shipping and handling for each bottle.
Purchasing Flawless Raspberry Ketone
Flawless Raspberry Ketone is available in 1, 2, or 3 month’s supplies from FlawlessRaspberryKetone.com.
• 1 month + free shipping: $89.99
• 2 months + 1 free bottle: $114.99
• 3 months + 2 free bottles: $139.99
This product is very expensive when compared to other raspberry ketone supplements. Other products with the same amount of capsules can be found for as low as $10.
To Wrap Up
The number of complaints and hidden trial stipulations attached to this company concern me. Lead Seeker LLC does not seem like a reliable manufacturer.
While the ingredients seem promising, I’m not convinced Flawless Raspberry Ketone is the “secret” to losing weight. It may work, but the results don’t justify the risk or the cost.
