NowFoods Cayenne 500mg 100 caps cayenne pepper for weight loss
Now Foods Cayenne is a dietary supplement containing the extract of the Fruit Pepper (Capsicum frutescens), the so-called Cayenne pepper, which is one of the best natural remedies used for weight loss, and modern scientific research indicates that it has anti-cancer properties and may support cardiovascular function.
The main active ingredient in Capsicum frutescens is capsaicin, which is famous for its pungent taste. This organic chemical compound has been shown to have analgesic, antioxidant, antimicrobial, hypotensive effects, and by affecting thermoregulation and fat metabolism, it aids in fat reduction. Recent reports also speak of its gastroprotective and anticancer properties.
How does cayenne pepper work?
Recent studies have shown that the mechanism of action of capsaicin is mainly through its effect on pain-sensing receptors TRPV1, which are very often referred to as "capsaicin receptors." They are located in the membranes of nerve cells of the peripheral nervous system, and in response to a physical stimulus they produce pain sensations. The analgesic effect of capsaicin is due to the fact that prolonged stimulation of these receptors causes them to inactivate and cease to be stimulated.
The effect of capsaicin on the body's temperature depends on the time elapsed since intake (sudden or late action), the frequency of intake (one-time or cyclic), the size of the dose, and the activity of the TRPV1 receptor. Regular intake of capsaicin causes inactivation of the TRPV1 receptor and an increase in body temperature. The action of capsaicin also alters the activity of calcium transporters in muscle, which leads to increased thermogenesis. The ATP-dependent calcium transporter is a protein that transports calcium ions from the cytoplasm to the endoplasmic reticulum of muscle cells, which consumes energy taken from the breakdown of high-energy bonds contained in ATP. Capsaicin causes this transporter to stop transporting calcium ions, but it continues to break down ATP and the energy is dissipated as heat.
Human studies confirm the weight-loss effects of capsaicin. During its regular intake, there are changes in the concentrations of proteins associated with thermogenesis and fat metabolism. It slows down the transcription of protein genes that stimulate the accumulation of spare adipose tissue and stimulates the transcription of protein genes associated with thermogenesis. In addition, it increases heat generation by potentiating the release of adrenaline and norepinephrine. It also affects the transcription of genes responsible for the production of enzymes that catalyze fat reduction reactions. In addition, capsaicin reduces feelings of craving. All these properties contribute to facilitating fat reduction and weight loss.
