Cayenne 450mg - 100 capsules

Cayenne: something spicy for the metabolism

Botanical: Capsicum frutescens
Chinese: La Jiao
Sanskrit: Marichiphala
English: cayenne, cayenne pepper

Thermogenic properties

You certainly know this pleasant warmth, which occurs when you eat a spicy meal. The reason is the so-called thermogenesis, during which the body releases energy in the form of heat. After every meal, a part of the ingested calories (approx. 10%) are transformed into heat, which also increases the metabolic rate for a few hours. Hot spices such as cayenne are able to support this effect und to stimulate the calorie consumption.


Even the native Americans consumed the spice cayenne, because they knew about its positive properties for the body. One the one hand, cayenne pepper contains many valuable antioxidants, including carotenoids, vitamin A and vitamin C. On the other hand, it contains capsaicin, the most interesting constituent. It accounts for 1.5% of cayenne pepper and gives it its pungency.

Further positive properties of cayenne

Apart from the thermogenic (heat-generating) effect, cayenne also has anticoagulant effects and is able to stimulate the endogenous production of endorphins, the so-called “happiness hormones”. Endorphins promote the well-being, stimulate the immune system, help with restless feelings and promote a restful sleep.

Cayenne boosts the metabolism

Above all, cayenne is able to stimulate the metabolism, so more calories are burned.

For years, chilli peppers are said to have properties, which are helpful against food cravings and excess pounds and are able to counteract overweight. The red pepper boosts the metabolism significantly and increases the energy metabolism with the result that fat pad on the stomach and the hips do not even have a chance.

More precise reasons for the slimming pungency were discovered by researchers from Taiwan: By damaging the mitochondria, the chilli constituent capsaicin ensures that precursor cells of fat cells (adipocytes) die off. Furthermore, capsaicin affects a molecule, which causes the cell death of fat cells.

Cayenne supports a balanced blood sugar level

Researcher of the University of Tasmania, Australia, were able to determine that chilli (cayenne) also contributes to a balanced blood sugar level. Thirty test eaters ate food without any chilli for four weeks and afterwards chilli-rich food. They concluded that the insulin level increased significantly slower after the chilli-rich food than after the unseasoned meals. A strong increase of the blood sugar level and a strong decrease afterwards, are considered to be the trigger for food cravings and, in this context, for weight gain.
