A blend of capsicum, piperine, caffeine and niacin (vitamin B3), make up the fat blasting power of Capsimax Powder. Both the capsicum pepper plant and piperine (otherwise known as black pepper) have strong thermogenic properties which can help you slim down by turning up your body heat. By increasing thermogenesis, these two ingredients enable you to burn more body fat. It’s also been suggested that piperine may even have the ability to stop the formation of new fat cells.
Multiple studies have demonstrated the weight loss benefits of capsicum, and findings suggest this natural substance could produce ‘clinically significant levels of weight loss’. 1
An essential natural mineral found in meat, vegetables and wholegrains, chromium helps curb your sugar and carb cravings by helping your body control your blood-sugar levels. When you eat foods containing sugar, such as carbs, the sugar is absorbed into your blood and carried to your cells to be used for energy. When your cells have enough sugar, you stop craving it. Chromium helps your cells take in as much sugar as possible, which means you’ll experience far less carb and sugar cravings, making losing weight much easier.
An eight week study by Cornell University found that chromium supplementation curbed appetite and carb cravings in people with depression.3
