Metabolics Capsicum is a natural herb food supplement. It is produced from the dried and ground stemless ripe fruit of the Capsicum family (Capsicum annum / Capsicum frutescens) of Chilli peppers. Capsicum annum species is the most common and extensively cultivated of the five domesticated capsicums and includes bell peppers, jalapenos, New Mexico chilli and cayenne peppers. Metabolics Capsicum uses Cayenne pepper.
Capsicums originated in the Americas, but are now grown worldwide. The plants fruits contain the chemical Capsaicin, which is responsible for giving them a spicy kick (the heat of the pepper is proportional to the Capsaicin concentration).
Capsicum provides essential nutrients and phytochemicals beneficial for healthy nutrition. It is a good source of vitamins A & C. Capsaicin the active ingredient in Capsicum, has been shown to inhibit certain Bacillus and Chlostridium (food poisoning strains, and Streptococcus strains) (Cichewicz, Thorpe, 1996).
Also found in Capsicum is the non-pungent analog of Capsaicin, Capsinoids which are reported to increase metabolism and decrease body fat by activating brown fat thermogenesis (Capsinoids and related food ingredients activating brown fat thermogenesis, by Saito and Yoneshiro , published in Curr Opin Lipidol Feb 24 2013).

Good for general nutritional support and can contribute in a weight loss program. Whilst the best way to obtain all the health benefits of peppers is by including them in your diet, this is a way of supplementing that intake on a daily basis.
