Jarrow Formulas Cayenne Max Ingredients

There was only one active ingredient in the Jarrow Formulas Cayenne Max formula when this review was created. This ingredient is Capsimax. This is a branded version of Cayenne Fruit Extract (Capsicum annuum L.). Capsimax is a registered trademark of OmniActive Health Technologies, LTD. There is 50 mg of Capsimax per 1 capsule (one serving size).

According to the official product page for this thermogenic OTC diet pill, Cayenne Max is highly concentrated in capsaicinoids from hot cayenne peppers (>600,000 Scoville Heat Units). It is these capsaicinoids that promote fat utilization for energy production.

To ensure that the product provides metabolic support without the stomach burn that would normally result from the chili peppers, the ingredients have been carefully encapsulated.

The other non-active ingredients in Jarrow Fromulas Cayenne Max include: Cellulose, beet root, sucrose, food glaze and magnesium stearate, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose.

That being aid, the product is vegetarian-friendly and has been made without:

  • Wheat
  • Gluten
  • Soybeans
  • Diary
  • Egg
  • Fish/shellfish
  • Peanuts/tree nuts 

The suggested use is to take 1 pill per day or as directed by your healthcare professional. 

The Potential Benefits 

The belief is that capsicum can promote thermogenesis. This is a process in the body that produces heat. When used in dietary supplements for weight management or in sport supplements for fat burning, the belief is that capsicum can increase the body’s natural metabolic response and result in the burning of more calories and stored fat by encouraging thermogenesis. Thermogenic fat burners are considered to be particularly beneficial when combined with physical activity.

Studies have found that capsaicinoids supplementation can decrease body fat and fat mass percentage. That being said, capsaicinoids have never been clinically proven effective as a treatment for weight loss and further studies are necessary to explore the uses, benefits and safety of capsaicinoids for managing weight and for other health issues.

This Product May Not Be Ideal for Everyone 

If you are under the age of 18, have a medical condition, are taking medications, are pregnant, nursing or, or trying to become pregnant, it is highly recommended that you first speak with your healthcare provider before taking Jarrow Formulas Cayenne Max.

Additionally, for optimal benefits, keep in mind that this weight management pill should be taken in conjunction with a calorie-controlled diet and regular, fitness-appropriate exercise.

LC20 Lean Cuts

LC20 Lean Cuts ReviewLC20 Lean Cuts is a dietary supplement from NG Nutra. Containing a blend of ingredients, its formula has been designed to help in every aspect of getting lean and ripped with extreme focus and energy. Helping you to achieve your fat burning goals at a faster rate it claims to offer benefits, such as fat incineration, metabolic enhancement and mood support.

When this LC20 Lean Cuts review was created, the formula was composed of three complexes, each containing multiple ingredients as follows:

Mental Focus, Energy and Metabolism Boost Complex: Caffeine Anhydrous, White Willow Bark Extract, Yohimbe HCL, Capsimax®, Huperzine A, Choline, Advanra Z, L-Carnitine Tartrate, N-Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL, L-Theanine. This complex supposedly helps to create the ideal combination for ultimate fat burning, energy and concentration with no crash.

Estrogen and Water Retention Complex: Dandelion Root, Diindolylmethane, Uva Ursi. These ingredients supposedly work together to help reduce water retention and help balance hormone levels by decreasing estrogen levels.

Insulin and Thyroid Complex: Potassium Iodide, Chromium Nicotinate Glycinate Chelate (TRAACs). These ingredients are believed to help make sure that thyroid output is supported and also helps to regulate healthy blood sugar levels.

The suggested use is to take 1 capsule in the early morning on an empty stomach and 1 capsule every afternoon on an empty stomach. Each capsule should be taken with 12 ounces of water. Users are instructed to first assess their tolerance levels by starting with 1 pill the first day to see how their body responds before taking the full 2 capsule daily dose.

While there is no denying that LC20 Lean Cuts contains a variety of ingredients, many of which are well known in the over-the-counter weight loss diet pill market, there are a few drawbacks to this dietary supplement.

For starters, there are far too many ingredients within the formula for each of these ingredients to provide any significant benefit. Secondly, this diet pill contains a notable amount of caffeine, with 395 mg of caffeine per 2 capsule serving, which is about equal to 2 to 4 eight-ounce cups of coffee. While this amount of caffeine can be tolerated by many healthy adults, those with sensitivity to stimulants may want to avoid taking LC20 Lean Cuts.

Moreover, even if you are not sensitive to stimulants, you may still increase your risk of unwanted side effects, such as jitters, anxiety, sleeplessness, heart palpitations, etc. if you ingest other caffeinated foods or beverages while taking this diet pill.

Finally, none of these ingredients have been scientifically proven effective or safe for managing your weight or causing weight loss. What’s more, if you find that you do rapidly slim down from taking LC20 Lean Cuts, there’s a good chance this is due to the loss of water weight, as this product does contain a few diuretics including dandelion root and uva ursi. Water weight will return.

You would be wise to consult with your healthcare provider before taking LC20 Lean Cuts.
