Forza Raspberry Ketone 2:2:1 are fat burning capsules designed to assist weight loss by harnessing the natural power of raspberry ketone. The product is manufactured in the UK, by Forza Supplements.
The company was established in 2007 and already enjoys a good reputation for producing quality sports and fitness supplements.
Raspberry Ketone 2:2:1 is a relatively new addition to their range and the use of predominantly pink packaging suggests this blend is being marketed towards female dieters, but there is no reason why the product should not be used by dieters of either sex.
Claims: To be the most popular raspberry ketone in the UK.
Positives: Made by a company with good track record and does contain legitimate ingredients
Negatives: We have to reject this on the grounds that if you are going to buy a raspberry ketone product then anything other Evolution Slimming own brand is a compromise.
What Is Forza Raspberry Ketone
The company offer a refund or exchange police for faulty goods, but it is not clear whether their guarantee of a refund also applies if customers feel the product has failed to provide results.
Raspberry Ketone 2:2:1 can be bought directly from the manufacturer’s website, but is also available from some third party retailers or from the Amazon marketplace, and—depending on where purchased—a bottle of 90 capsules should cost between £17 and £23.
Dosage and Promised Benefits
Forza recommend an initial dose of one to two capsules each morning, until tolerance has been established, after which the dose can be increased to two capsules in the morning, followed by a further capsule in the afternoon. The capsules should be taken with a glass of water and the daily dose should never exceed four capsules.
What Does It Contain
The capsules rely on three main ingredients, blended in a 2:2:1 ratio (two parts raspberry ketone, two parts caffeine, one part resveratrol).
- Raspberry Ketone (200 mg): As the product name suggests, raspberry ketone is the most important ingredient. Raspberry ketone is a natural compound extracted from raspberries, but it can also be found in some other fruits as well. The ingredient received a lot of media attention after it was endorsed by the American TV personality Dr Oz, and it has an enviable reputation as a fat burner. It is also an expensive ingredient; so many manufacturers use synthetic raspberry ketone, which is cheaper, but lacks some of the power of naturally sourced raspberry ketone. Forza fail to state which type is used in their blend.
- Caffeine (200 mg): The natural stimulatory effects of caffeine should help to provide the promised boosted energy levels, and may also help suppress the appetite, but caffeine is known to be problematic for some users and may cause side effects including, restlessness, heart palpitations, and the jitters.
- Resveratrol (100 mg): Normally extracted from red grapes, resveratrol is a known antioxidant that offers many health benefits, but its reputation as a fat burner is far from proven.
The official website’s “Press Coverage” page reproduces an article from OK! magazine, in which the former Emmerdale Farm actress, Roxanne Pallett, states Raspberry Ketone 2:2:1 helped her lose over a stone in weight when she needed to slim down for a theatre production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Luisa Zissman (runner up in The Apprentice TV show) also endorses the product and calls the capsules “willpower in pill form”.
Although the company website shares some positive testimonials attributed to Forza’s T5 product, it shows no customer feedback for Raspberry Ketone 2:2:1.
Independent reviews are available though, and the vast majority of users report positive results:
Possible Side Effects
Fruit-based ingredients are seldom problematic, so the main ingredient should not prove to be of issue as far as side effects go. Resveratrol is also unlikely to be problematic, but the caffeine content may be an issue for some users, and the product should be avoided by pregnant and nursing mothers. People with existing health issues are recommended to seek medical advice before use.
Is It Recommended
Raspberry Ketone 2:2:1 appears to be a quality product. All ingredients and inclusion rates are provided, and there is every evidence that this will be an effective blend that should help the user attain their weight loss goals if used in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet and regular exercise. It is possible though, that some users may encounter problems due to the caffeine content, so a little buyer discretion is advised, but overall this appears to be one of the better raspberry ketone products on the market.
Customer feedback is also very good, and the celebrity endorsements provide extra credibility, but . . .
As we have mentioned above Raspberry Ketone Plus from Evolution Slimming is the best example of a natural fat burner in our opinion.
When the news story first broke that raspberry ketone my be something quite special it was the Evolution Slimming brand that featured in the high profile news stories.
