CAYENNE – Known mainly as cayenne pepper is a type of spice that is derived from chili peppers and has many uses due to its abundant capsaicin. Capsaicin, an alkaloid that acts on the vanilloid receptor, causes characteristic “hot sensations”. The supplement increases the level of thermogenesis. The increase in body temperature is due to the release of catecholamines from the adrenal medulla (adrenaline and norepinephrine). This causes an increase in the metabolic rate and an increase in the rate of lipolysis (breakdown of body fat). CAYENNE , along with other substances with thermogenic properties, is a component of fat burners and thermogenics. Caution is advised when using preparations containing capsaicin. They can irritate the mucous membranes and cause epigastric pain, especially if sensitive people consume too much of them. In case of irritation with capsaicin, it is recommended to use products rich in casein like milk.
Dosage: from 25 mg to 100 mg.
