For years it’s been known that spicy food is a good way to kick-start your metabolism and burn more fat quicker, and now scientists have found a way to put all that spicy goodness in a pill. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Brad Pitt have been said to be fans of Capsiplex, a weight-loss supplement consisting of hot peppers and capsicum that burns as many calories as a 25-minute jog.
The makers of Capsiplex conducted trials at the University of Oklahoma and result proved that the supplement burns 278 more calories before, during and after exercise. But because capsicum is such a spicy ingredient, the challenge was to create a supplement that was safe to ingest in large quantities.
“For decades, scientists have known about the weight-loss potential of red-hot peppers,” a spokesperson told The Daily Mail. “The problem has been the ability to consume such a highly concentrated amount, but we have overcome this by putting a protective coating on the ingredients which stops any gastric irritation. At last we have a safe and healthy supplement to help weight loss.”
Already on shelves in America, Capsiplex has just been introduced in the United Kingdom.

Whether this type of supplement results in weight loss is a big question mark…. but the data is not encouraging.
A previous study using red pepper extract showed that it is was no more effective than a placebo in preventing weight gain after modest weight loss, even though the red pepper group had more fat burning.Brad Pitt, Britney Spears, Diet Pills, Jennifer Lopez
