OmniActive Health Technologies, Inc today announced the latest addition to its portfolio of nutritional products: Capsimax™ Blend, a proprietary combination of natural ingredients clinically proven to increase the amount of calories burned before, during, and after exercise by 12 times.
Capsimax™ blend features OmniActive’s patent-pending Capsimax™ Capsicum Fruit Extract. Several studies conducted over the past 30 years, including both animal and human subjects, demonstrate the enormous potential of Capsicum (red hot peppers) and Capsaicinoids (their active ingredients) as a safe, effective nutritional supplement for weight loss and fat burning. What is unique about Capsimax™ is that it is micro-encapsulated in OmniActive’s patented beadlet technology, which delivers functionally effective levels of Capsaicinoids while minimizing the oral and gastric irritation that unprotected Capsicum can cause. Additional ingredients in Capsimax™ Blend include the thermogenic and performance-boosting agents caffeine and black pepper extract, as well as niacin (vitamin B-3), necessary for converting food into energy.
Capsimax™ Blend was developed by leading scientists and then subjected to a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled cross-over study to research its effect on calorie burning in exercising individuals. The results of the study were impressive: When subjects took Capsimax™ Blend one hour prior to exercising on a treadmill, they burned three times more calories before, 3% more calories during, and 12 times more calories for up to an hour after exercise compared to when they took a placebo. This increase in metabolic rate resulted in an average cumulative total of 278 more calories burned before, during, and after exercise compared to placebo.
“This research confirms that Capsimax™ Blend has the science to support its calorie-burning claims,” said Dr Jayant Deshpande, Vice President of Research and Development for OmniActive Heallth Technologies Ltd. “Capsimax™ Blend is an excellent choice for manufacturers who want to develop cutting-edge weight loss and athletic performance products.”
Capsimax™ is available in three options: standalone Capsimax™ Capsicum Extract for tablet or capsule application, Capsimax™ Blend for tablet and capsule application, and Capsimax™ Blend multi-colored OmniBeads™ for capsule application with enhanced visual appeal.
