Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones Review
“Ideal for Toning and Conditioning!”
Met-Rx recently released a new formula designed to shape and tone the body: CLA with Raspberry Ketones.
As its name implies, this new formula offers CLA and raspberry ketone extract to fight fat and “help you achieve a healthy and toned body composition.”
According to advertisements, Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones boosts energy metabolism, but is it a good way to lose weight?
Interestingly enough Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones is just that, CLA and raspberry ketone. There are no additional stimulants, fat burners, or appetite suppressants to promote weight loss and attack fat from multiple angles.
While it provides a refreshing break from supplements cluttered with preservatives, additives, and filler ingredients, I’m not convinced it’s as effective as advertised.
Myoleptin CLA – 1,000 mg. CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, is a fatty acid which lowers cholesterol and prevents atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). It is commonly used as an ingredient for weight loss due to its potential to reduce fat gain and maintain insulin sensitivity.
In human trials, CLA improved overall body fat percentage without causing negative side effects. While it improved body composition, dieters should note that it had no effect on body weight.
Raspberry Ketones – 125 mg. Ever since Dr. Oz recommended raspberry ketone on his show, countless dieters flocked to supplements providing the ingredient. However, the recommendation may have been premature, as the studies on raspberry ketone are limited to animal subjects.
Supposedly, raspberry ketone alters lipid metabolism and increases norepinephrine-induced lipolysis in white adipocytes (fat).  But, more research is needed to verify these effects.
Potential Side Effects and Safety Concerns
Unlike other diet pills, Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones does not contain additional stimulants, banned substances, or harmful chemicals that cause severe or long lasting negative side effects.
Conjugated linoleic acid may cause stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea, and fatigue when taken in doses greater than 7 grams daily. But, Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones only contains 1 gram so side effect risk is minimal.
As for raspberry ketone, however, there is not enough information to know if raspberry ketone is safe to use on regular basis and a safe concentration has yet to be determined. 
Manufacturers recommend taking 1 softgel three times daily, preferably with meals. As with any dietary supplement, it works best when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
If you are taking medication or have a medical condition, consult your doctor prior to use.
What Consumers Are Saying
Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones is still too new to have reliable consume reviews. It’s only available via certain distributors, and consequently, too few consumers have tried it to test its overall performance.
If you’ve tried Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones, please leave your thoughts and experiences in the comments section below. Your opinion could help other dieters determine if it’s a good buy.
Where to Buy Met-RX CLA with Raspberry Ketones
Met-RX CLA with Raspberry Ketones distributors are extremely limited. Currently, Met-RX CLA with Raspberry Ketones can only be purchased through the following sites:
• eSupplements: $17.98
• Netrition.com: $18.99
• UK.BodyBuilding.com: £13.05
Not even MetRX.com is selling their new product yet. I suspect, however, that new distributors will be available as product popularity increases.

More About the Manufacturers
Met-Rx has been in the supplement industry for nearly 2 decades. It is primarily known for its exclusive protein powder Metamyosyn, but the company also offers a wide variety of nutritional supplements and products.
According to the official website, Met-RX will “help you shape your body with quality, results-oriented products that fulfill both your appetite and your body’s need for balanced meals and solid nutrition.”
Pick It or Pitch It?
Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones sends off some mixed signals.
In favor of the product, it offers some highly recommended ingredients that may boost metabolism and promote weight loss. On the other hand, there is limited research backing these ingredients for weight loss.
On a positive note, it does not contain any harmful stimulants or banned substances, but then again, it doesn’t contain additional ingredients to attack fat from multiple angles.
Without consumer reviews, it’s impossible to tell how effective Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones is, which makes me wonder if this supplement can really live up to the claims.
Until more information is available about Met-Rx CLA with Raspberry Ketones, I don’t feel comfortable recommending this supplement.
