About this Nutrient
Common names:
Capsaicin, Capsaicin Cream, Capsicum
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

The only con I have is that the pills all turned darker after opening even with the top closed. I am not sure if this changes the strength or effectiveness of the capsule.

    Great product. Just make sure you take it with food. First day or two can be a little disruptive to your digestive system, but nothing major. If you take it without food you may experience some heartburn. It's Cayenne pepper remember!

        I was unable to take this product because it made my stomach hurt. Didn't get heartburn, just a bad feeling in my stomach. I was going to use it as an aid to my weightloss. Was told when I purchased it to make sure I ate when I took it, and I did.
