Hi, I suggest not to take any fat burner pill. Its harmful. instead of taking pills you should work on your diet as well adopt good habit of exercise.

The company stands by the safety of all of its products. OxyELite Pro is a popular "fat burner" sold only in the finest vitamin and health aids stores.

nanaklp, I don't know about "rasberry" but stay away from these two supplements.
