Many people today are using capsaicin as a fat burner to naturally aid in weight loss. Capsaicin is an ingredient found in spicy peppers like Capsicum frutescens, a species that includes some of the hottest peppers in the world. And the spicier the pepper, the more capsaicin it contains.
Research has shown that consuming capsaicin, along with diet and exercise, can help manage weight loss.1
Does this mean you should immediately start eating handfuls of hot peppers, or taking all the capsaicin pills you can find?
No. This spicy compound is considered an irritant, and it can wreak havoc on your digestive tract. Any pepper from the capsicum genus can cause problems if consumed in large doses. And not only can capsicum particles irritate skin, they can also irritate your eyes and respiratory system. So, if you are ever around capsaicin in its concentrated form, make sure you are extra careful… as you would be with actual peppers or dried pepper spices.
One thing is clear: use caution if you are using a capsicum extract to help boost weight loss.
Thankfully, Capsimax has done all the hard work for you, so you can feel safe about the capsicum supplement you are taking.
The Capsimax Difference You Can Feel
Capsimax® Capsicum Extract will give you the same benefit as eating a habanero pepper, but without the burn. It is a highly active and concentrated natural form of capsicum. Many other kinds of encapsulated capsicum lack the ingredient technology of Capsimax. They aren’t able to protect you from the oral and gastric burning that can come with consuming high levels of this compound.
Capsimax utilizes OmniBead™ technology (made by OmniActive Health Technologies), which is an innovative way to ingest capsicum. The OmniBead™ beadlets have a controlled-release coating over the capsaicinoids, delivering them over time, and at levels that will help protect your digestive tract.
The outer coating of Capismax is created specifically to withstand the acids it will encounter in your stomach. It is then broken down, and its benefits absorbed, in your intestines.
This technology helps to avoid the intense side effects that can come along with the use of other capsicum frutescens supplements.
Capsimax comes in a supplement capsule form, but it is also available in ready-to-mix powders, so you can enjoy its benefits while staying hydrated – however, you may benefit more from a capsule if you suffer with the digestive effects of this spicy ingredient.
And Capsimax is not just for weight management alone. You can take Capismax to enjoy general sports nutrition and a healthier, more robust metabolism. The bottom line? You get all the great benefits that come with eating hot peppers without all the burn that comes with it!
Capsimax Clinical Research
Clinical trials have demonstrated the potential health benefits of consuming capsaicinoids, and Capsimax® Capsicum Extract, as a dietary supplement. Much of the research has focused on four things:
- Diet-induced thermogenesis
- Body composition
Diet-induced thermogenesis is an increase in energy expenditure that is higher than the basal (normal) metabolic rate.2 Metabolism is your body’s natural process of converting the food you eat into energy. Lipolysis, in a nutshell, is the process by which your body breaks down fat.3
One study showed that Capsimax increased energy expenditure and oxygen consumption rate when taken with black pepper extract, caffeine, and niacin. This simply means you’re burning more calories. And this boost continued for up to an hour after participants exercised. Participants in the study also had better levels of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as improved heart rate.4
Another study of overweight participants showed an increase in energy levels and a reduction in body weight over fat.
Significant results were shown when Capsimax was taken alongside raspberry ketone, garlic, caffeine, Citrus Aurantium, and ginger.5
The effects of Capsimax on lipolysis have also been quite interesting. One study clearly demonstrated its ability to aid in this process. Twenty healthy participants showed significant results when given 100 mg of Capsimax. By studying participants’ levels of fatty acids, researchers were able to determine the fat breakdown in their bodies had increased.6
Capsimax is the Obvious Choice
The proof is in the pudding with this incredible fat burner. If you’ve been painfully ingesting too many spicy hot peppers to help increase your weight loss, or if your capsaicin pills are giving you a horrible burn in your mouth, throat, chest, and stomach, then you’ve got to try including a Capsimax supplement in your diet.
As with all supplements, you should talk with your doctor or nurse practitioner before adding them to your daily diet.
