Do diet supplements like Dr. Oz's 'fat burner in a bottle' waste your money?

Walk into a health food store: The shelves are filled with nutrition supplements, each promising to provide you with "miracle" cures ranging from weight loss to sleep. And both in the real world and online, many of these promises stem from being featured on Dr. Mehmet Oz's talk show. Now, however, new research is making many experts and consumers question whether supplements are a waste of money, reported the Lake News on Jan. 18.

Research has shown that raspberry ketone can boost weight loss efforts, says Dr. Oz. He cited studies showing that by extracting raspberry ketone, which is the primary aroma compound of red raspberries, scientists can create supplements that cause the fat in your body's cells to break up more efficiently. The result: You burn fat faster, claimed Dr. Oz.

If you want to try it, beware of products with added fillers. We compared some different ones and found several also have mega-doses while others have numerous additional ingredients. Some to consider are Teraputics Raspberry Ketones 250mg and Genetica Labs Raspberry Ketones.
