Science Behind Hot Red Pepper Extract Capsicum Featured at Supplyside East Education Seminar

SupplySide East attendees interested in a new science-backed food-derived ingredient shown to reduce human appetite levels and increase energy expenditure should plan to attend "The Untapped Potential of Hot Red Pepper Extract," a 50-minute educational session presented by Richard Bloomer, Ph.D., assistant professor, Department of Health and Sport Sciences at The University of Memphis. As the formulators of the new ingredient Capsimax(tm) Capsicum Extract, OmniActive Health Technologies representatives will be in attendance to support awareness of capsicum extract's unique weight management properties.

Set for Monday, April 27 at noon in Room B of Secaucus, N.J.'s Meadowlands Exposition Center, Dr. Bloomer's presentation will review capsicum extract's active principals and clinical study results surrounding capsicum extract natural blends; explore emerging applications in weight management and sports nutrition supplements; and discuss effective methods for nutritionists to incorporate and encapsulate capsicum extracts into new dietary formulations at functionally effective levels.

"We are pleased that capsicum extracts' unique calorie-burning properties are being highlighted in this year's SupplySide education program," said OmniActive's Hiren Doshi. "We look forward to Dr. Bloomer's thorough research overview, and feel this presentation will be of great interest to show attendees."
