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:
- 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.
