I haven't taken them; a while back I read an article that pointed out that supplements such as these, are not regulated by the FDA. I don't remember whether the article mentioned raspberry ketones, or green coffee bean extract -- but an independent lab tested a bunch of them and most of them contained a lot less of the ingredient, than stated on the label. With some brands containing NONE of the ingredient.
If you look on the web at places like Amazon and read the reviews-- some people see no results and some love the stuff. Personally, I think it's more the "placebo effect"-- where a person believes it's going to work so they do all the stuff that will help it work-- watch what they eat, get some exercise, etc. And they lose weight, claiming it was the pills that did it. When in reality they would've gotten the same results if they'd skipped the pills and just done all those other things.
