How does it work?
Cayenne contains capsaicin, the compound that produces the "hot" in hot peppers. Originally from South America, the cayenne plant is now used worldwide as a food and spice. Cayenne is very closely related to bell peppers, jalapeños, paprika, and other similar peppers.
Who is it used for?
Combined with other herbs, capsaicin will increase the metabolic rate, and is suitable for anyone who wants to lose fat safely and rapidly.
How does it work?
The potent, hot fruit of cayenne has been used as medicine for centuries. It was considered helpful for various conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, including stomach aches, cramping pains, and gas. Cayenne was frequently used to treat diseases of the circulatory system. It is still traditionally used in herbal medicine as a circulatory tonic (a substance believed to improve circulation).

Cayenne contains capsaicin, the compound that produces the "hot" in hot peppers. Cayenne is known to increase your metabolic rate, which is one reason why you get so hot and sweaty after eating spicy foods [1]. One of the additional benefits of Cayenne is its function as a digestive aid. Cayenne increases the secretion of acids in the stomach, which increases the absorption and effectiveness of other herbs consumed with it.

Reductions in appetite have been found in healthy Japanese women and white men when they consumed Cayenne pepper along with meals in a double-blind trial [2]. A similar trial shows that Cayenne raises the metabolic rate in Japanese women [3].These trials suggest that Cayenne can make weight loss faster and easier.
How do I use it?
Approximately 100-150 milligrams of Cayenne (preferably a 40% extract), in 2-3 divided doses of 50-75 milligrams, should be effective for promoting weight loss in combination with a sensible diet and regular exercise program.
What results can I expect?
Cayenne will accelerate weight loss by increasing the metabolic rate and curbing the appetite. Best results are seen when it is combined with one or more of the ingredients listed below.
What can it be combined with?
Many weight loss experts believe that Cayenne enhances and extends the effect of other supplements designed for weight loss. For best results, Cayenne can be combined with Green Tea Extract, Bitter Orange Peel and/or Guarana.
