Capsiate Natura is the first dietary supplement with rare extracted natural compounds called capsinoids from the CH-19 Sweet pepper. In numerous clinical studies, they have been shown to increase metabolism without any side effects. Increasing metabolism is important and helpful to weight management in conjunction with a program of diet and exercise. CH-19 SWEET, A BRIEF HISTORY: Chili peppers have been a part of the human diet in the Americans since about 75000 B.C. Often people don't eat as many chili peppers as they would like because of their pungency. In 1989, a Japanese group of plant biologists discovered a variety of pepper that contained a natural substance closely related to Capsaicin, but without its usual pungency. They called the pepper "CH-19 Sweet," and use its substances to make up the capsinoids used in Capsiate Natura. Capsiate: Capsiate, one of the capsinoids, is often used as a popular name for capsinoids because it is the major part of capsinoids extracted from CH-19 Sweet peppers. Capsinoids: Capsinoids are a family of compounds that are analogues of capsaicin, but are non-pungent. They are approximately 1,000 times less pungent in contrast to capsaicin. Capsinoids are extracted from CH-19 Sweet peppers, unique and natural non-pungent peppers. Capsinoids is a collective name that includes capsiate, dihydrocapsiate and nordihydrocapsiate. Capsinoids are protected under US patent 6333421 as a novel substance. CH-19 Sweet pepper: A newly discovered non-pungent sweet pepper that is the source for capsinoids, the key ingredients in Capsiate Natura. This variety of pepper is unique because it produces capsinoids, but almost no capsaicin. CH-19 Sweet peppers are registered under plant variety protection 200200159.
