Capsi Extreme is a diet supplement that is created in the form of a capsule and that is designed to help dieters to be able to lose weight more quickly and easily than they would be able to accomplish if they were exclusively making dietary changes and exercising.
This product contains a number of different ingredients that are often seen in the nonprescription weight loss industry. However, just because they are common, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they will be effective. To best understand this product, it is a good idea to look at each of the ingredients individually, as well as in combination with each other.
The ingredients that make up the Capsi Extreme formula are: caffeine, cayenne extract (capsicum), niacin (vitamin B3), BioPerine, green tea extract, N-acetyl L-carnintine, and chromium. At first glance, this list looks promising as there are a number of studied ingredients among them.
To start, caffeine is a stimulant that is found in many common foods such as coffee, soda, and chocolate. This substance is known to increase the metabolism, provide more energy, and encourage the body to burn fat more quickly and easily. However, in high doses, it can also cause unwanted side effects such as sleeplessness, shakes and tremors, an increase in blood pressure and heart rate, anxiety, and others. An average cup of coffee contains about 70 mg of caffeine, depending on its strength and how it is made. As each serving contains 183.5 mg of caffeine, this is the equivalent to around two and a half cups of coffee, taken all at once. While some people may not have any problem with this at all, others might find that they will not have a pleasant reaction to it and that the side effects are uncomfortable.
The capsicum in this product will help to encourage thermogenesis, a process that increases the body temperature so that calories are being burned off as heat instead of requiring activity to burn them. Provided that the dieter is careful to remain hydrated and takes care not to overheat during workouts, this could be a helpful tool to get more out of exercising. The BioPerine is a substance made from black pepper which helps to encourage more effective absorption of the ingredients in the formula.
While green tea extract has been found to be helpful in some dieters who are attempting to lose weight, the studies on the substance gave the dieters 250 mg to 500 mg of the substance. This formula contains only 40 mg, which may not produce any benefits at all. The chromium in this formula may also not produce any benefits. The Mayo Clinic has created a report on some diet pill ingredients and chromium was one of them. They stated that while this substance likely won’t do any harm, any claims about its link to weight loss remain entirely unproven.
