Capsimax® is a patented ingredient that contains a very concentrated natural capsicum extract from red hot chili peppers that delivers all of the heat of capsaicin (like a habanero pepper) without the burn. Capsaicinoids are the naturally occurring compounds that cause the burning sensation, or heat, that we get from eating red chili peppers. Made with patented OmniBead™ technology, concentrated highly active capsicum extract from red hot chili peppers is encapsulated in a controlled-release coating.
The primary areas of study have been thermogenesis, lipolysis, metabolism and body composition. Capsaicinoids stimulate thermogenesis, the process of generating heat energy by breaking down our bodies’ main unit of energy, adenosine triphosphate. Capsaicinoids also stimulate an enzyme called lipase, which breaks down the fat in our bodies so we can use it for fuel.
More recently, capsaicinoids have been shown to help support a weight management regimen and to promote a healthy metabolism. In combination with other ingredients, capsaicinoids may also support weight management. Capsaicinoids’ various roles in weight management have been well-researched. More than 90 clinical studies around the world have been conducted on men and women of various ages to examine the effect of capsaicinoids on normal weight, overweight and obese individuals.
One study explored the effects of Capsimax® on the breakdown of fat and secretion of hormones that control metabolism on both healthy and obese subjects. Twenty healthy subjects who ingested 100 mg Capsimax® (2 mg capsaicinoids) showed significant increases in free fatty acids and glycerol in their blood post-ingestion and after exercise (an indicator of fat breakdown). Another study found eight weeks of daily supplementation with Capsimax®, the group taking the Capsimax® containing supplement lost more weight, more body fat and more waist and hip girth than the placebo group. The Capsimax® group also gained more lean body mass.
A study observing energy expenditure and fat craving after supplementation with Capsimax® saw energy levels increased while fat craving decreased. Another study monitored its thermogenic properties by assessing energy expenditure, it was found that the participants burned more calories before, during and after exercise when they had taken Capsimax® as compared to the placebo.
Caliente contains 100mg of Capsimax® per full serving, which is the clinical studied dose! This and 13 other ingredients in our Caliente turns your body into an efficient fat-burning machine without any stimulants.
