capsicum use in diet pills

When you are looking to find the best diet pill, you only need to look as far as what ingredients they use in their formula. If it doesn’t contain the top active ingredients that boost your metabolism, suppress your appetite, or give you energy, then it won’t help you reach your weight loss goals.

I’ve started a series of posts to go into detail on the different ingredients that you find in the top diet pills on the market to explain why they are effective in fat burning. In this edition, I take a look at Capsicum.

Capsicum and Weight Loss

Capsicum is an ingredient that is found in many plants, but most commonly is derived from peppers such as cayenne, chili, red, or paprika. While this ingredient has been used in its plant form for ages as an ingredient in many of the dishes you have in your daily life, it hasn’t been until recently that it has found popularity as an additive to the best diet pill formulas.

The secret behind this ingredient’s power as a fat burner lies in a chemical it contains called Capsaicin. This chemical has thermogenic properties. I have talked about thermogenesis many times on this site, but if you are unfamiliar, here’s a little summary. Thermogenesis is a process whereby the temperature in your body is raised.

Think of your body as a furnace, and thermogenesis is adding more fuel to it. The result? The temperature goes up and it burns hotter. The same effect happens with capsaicin, and when your internal temp is heightened, you burn more calories and fat. Not just when you are active, but also when you are resting.

Capsicum also has been studied to improve your metabolism by increasing the movement of fats in your body. It can help fat be burned for energy, as opposed to building up fat stores, and is particularly beneficial in the stomach area to burn belly fat.

Other Benefits of Capsicum

Besides its use in weight loss, there are a few other health properties of capsicum. These include:

  • Lessening of muscle fatigue
  • More energy
  • Boosting circulation – a better flow of blood and nutrients in your body
  • Regulating blood pressure
  • Fighting respiratory issues such as the common cold, asthma, and others

Bottom Line

If you are wanting to shed a few extra pounds, finding a diet pill that contains capsicum should be at the top of your list. One of the most popular diet pills that contain this ingredient is PhenQ, which I review here. Adding this to your routine with a healthy diet and exercise regimen will do wonders in helping you reach your weight loss goals.
