About Capsimax Capsicum Extract

Proprietary Capsimax is made using OmniBead Beadlet Technology to encapsulate the beneficial heat of concentrated highly-active, natural capsicum in a controlled-release coating—delivering effective levels of capsaicinoids without the oral and gastric burning sensation of unprotected red hot peppers. In studies, clinically-tested, stimulant-free Capsimax was shown to significantly help improve waist:hip ratio, decrease appetite, accelerate metabolism and increase resting energy expenditure by 6% which equates to roughly 100 calories a day.
