Is Red Pepper Good For Slimming

Can Red Pepper Help Slimming

If you are trying to lose weight there is one “thing” … be it a food, a diet programme, an exercise regime or a diet product that should be considered an essential component, it is Red Pepper.

It cannot be underlined strongly enough the connection between red pepper and the slimming process.

Red pepper (capsicum to give its proper name) is a generic term that describes a variety of pepper plants. The fruit from capsicum has been used for centuries as an accompaniment to food to add flavour but until fairly recently its benefits to weight loss had been largely overlooked.

Red pepper is known and described in several ways such as Cayenne pepper, Paprika, Red Chilli pepper (red chili pepper), Pimiento, Sweet pepper, Hungarian pepper and the Mexican pepper.

“Capsiplex’s makers say the capsule, which is made from hot peppers and capsicum and is used by Hollywood stars Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt and Britney Spears, can eat up as many calories as 80 minutes of walking or a 25-minute jog.”

The main feature of red hot pepper is of course its heat, this is caused by Capsaicinoids – a part of a group of colourless, pungent compounds found in the flesh of the pepper.

It is Capsaicinoids that are responsible for raising the metabolism to generate an increase in body temperature that burn calories and excess body fat.

Recently the media have been publishing numerous articles featuring the benefits of capsaicinoids – most strikingly was the Daily Mail’s article highlighting the “chilli pill” and its ability to burn calories while the user does practically nothing.

Chili Diet Pill Capsiplex Review

The Chili Diet Pill, Capsiplex

Capsiplex UkThis is the time of year when the diet and slimming industry at their busiest – New year Resolutions in most cases are centred around self-improvement with losing weight second only to quitting smoking.

A new product that has just emerged with a significant amount of publicity is Capsiplex, the so called chili diet pill.

Capsiplex is combination of chili and capsicum – the producers (Scotland based Advanced Health Limited) claim the diet pill can burn as many calories as you would from Jogging for twenty-five minutes or briskly walking for an hour and a half

The advertising blurb also claim that it has a wide usage in Hollywood with high profile celebrities such as Britney Spears, Brad Pitt and J-Lo amongst its users.

How Does The Chili Pill Work

The two main ingredients included are chili and capsicum.

Capsicum Extract, it is claimed, can suppress appetite and also raise the metabolic rate, burn excess calories, reduce body mass and reduce body fat.

Chili has been linked to weight loss for decades – the problem until now is the ingesting of a high concentration without causing gastric irritation. A special coating has now been introduced to eradicate this problem.

Does It Work

The problem with Capsiplex is that it is billed as new and revolutionary. A new product it may be but its hardly revolutionary.

The marketing material does make some pretty compelling claims with regard to scientific proof without actually providing any real evidence of this.

Until some tangible evidence is released look elsewhere.

Other Diet Pills To Consider
