HEALTH BENEFITS OF RASPBERRIES
One of the most fascinating new areas of raspberry research involves the potential for raspberries to improve management of obesity. Although this research is in its early stages, scientists now know that metabolism in our fat cells can be increased by phytonutrients found in raspberries, especially rheosmin (also called raspberry ketone). By increasing enzyme activity, oxygen consumption, and heat production in certain types of fat cells, raspberry phytonutrients like rheosmin may be able to decrease risk of obesity as well as risk of fatty liver. In addition to these benefits, rheosmin can decrease activity of a fat-digesting enzyme released by our pancreas called pancreatic lipase. This decrease in enzyme activity may result in less digestion and absorption of fat.
Recent research on organic raspberries has now shown organic raspberries to be significantly higher in total antioxidant capacity than non-organic raspberries.

  1. I was happy to see no banana in the ingredient list (I’m allergic) but then noticed a note at the end of regarding frozen bananas. Are they supposed to be included? I hope not as I always have to find a work around.

      Welcome Brandice! It’s up to you. Most people drink 2 cups/16oz to start and move up to 4 cups/32oz. It’s whatever you can handle, you can always save the rest for up to 1 day and use as a snack 🙂 Or freeze it and take it out the night before on a day you have to run out the door.
