Red Pepper Extract Impresses in Weight Loss Study

March 11, 2013

OmniActive's Capsimax capsicum extract may lower body fat.

OmniActive Health Technologies (Morristown, NJ) reports that it earned second place recognition for a study on its Capsimax red pepper extract and weight loss at last month's Scripps Natural Supplements Conference poster sessions in San Diego.

Capsimax is a capsicum extract specially encapsulated to prevent the burning sensation traditionally associated with hot pepper consumption. At 100 mg daily for 12 weeks, Capsimax reportedly induced a significant reduction in body fat percentage in a human population. The study is pending publication.
