Capsimax® Capsicum Extract
Capsimax 2% Capsicum Extract employs OmniBead™ Beadlet Technology to encapsulate the beneﬁcial heat of concentrated highly-active, natural capsicum in a controlled-release coating, delivering effective levels of capsaicinoids without the oral and gastric burning sensation of unprotected red hot peppers.
Capsaicinoids alone or in combination with other weight-management ingredients have been shown to promote energy production, support healthy body composition, decrease anthropometric variables (circumference, body weight, body fat), help induce thermogenesis and to be well tolerated and safe for human ingestion (Bloomer et al. Lipids Health Dis. 2010 Jul 15;9:72.; Ryan et al. J Strength Cond Res. 2009 May;23(3):807-17.; Lopez et al. J Int Soc Sports Nutr. 2013 Apr 19;10(1):22.).
Unprotected capsicum extract is difficult to handle in formulations and production, as airborne particles cause irritation of eyes, skin, and respiratory system and may lead to cross-contamination during the formulating and manufacturing processes. Adding beneficial amounts of capsicum to weight management, sports nutrition and healthy lifestyle formulations is now possible with proprietary Capsimax. OmniActive Health Technologies
