Capsinoids Lower Abdominal Obesity

Capsinoids, the active compounds in chili peppers, lower abdominal obesity and improve fat oxidation rates. Overall body weight also improved some, but abdominal fat showed the greatest reduction…indicating improved insulin signalling.

Capsaicin is the most widely studied capsinoid.  Despite the burn, capsinoids are well tolerated.  The study participants took 6 mg of capsinoids per day.
