Has anyone heard of or tried capsinoids? This is from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: Chilli peppers contain substances such as capsaicin, dihydrocapsaicin and nordihydrocapsaicin. These are responsible for the burning sensation in your mouth when you eat chilli pepper. This happens because the substances attach themselves to the TRPV1 receptor. And because they interact with this receptor, pepper extracts also increase the body’s fat burning. They do this so effectively that a number of reviews have already pointed to these components as promising ingredients for anti-obesity supplements and functional foods. And they have an added health advantage: pepper components reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Please let me know what you think about this? Has anyone tried this?
