Capsiplex is a new weight loss product that is presented on a very simple and easy to navigate website. The product, which is manufactured by Advanced Health Ltd., is also known as the ‘Chilli Diet pill’ and works on the theory that hot peppers can aid in boosting the metabolism and thereby burning fat more efficiently. While it has always been known that chilli peppers can raise the metabolism, one would have to eat them in large amounts to gain any benefits. The idea behind Capsiplex, as explained on the website, is that the product has the same effect, but because it is made to be tolerated in the intestine, will not cause gastrointestinal discomfort.
The product website features a reasonable FAQ section and several customer testimonials, although many of the amounts of weight loss stated are above the medically recommended amounts (for example 5lbs in 4 days). One of the better sections on the site details clinical studies performed on the main ingredient, capsicum extract, which showed it to be successful in increasing energy, enhancing calorie loss – particularly during exercise – and reducing body mass and body fat.
Capsiplex – Product Description
Capsiplex consists of 4 active weight loss ingredients, capsicum extract (from hot peppers), caffeine, black pepper and niacin. No ingredient amounts are provided and there are no details regarding exactly what each ingredient does to promote weight loss. Capsiplex is very easy to take requiring just one pill per day, preferably taken 30-60 minutes before exercise. The manufacturer recommends that the customer follows a sensible diet to further aid weight loss.
Although Capsiplex is more affordable that some weight loss products at a cost of $46.72 for a one month supply, no free trial is offered and the money back guarantee appears to only be good for 7 days, hardly adequate time to judge the product.

Capsiplex – The Bottom Line
The Capsiplex product was obviously timed to take advantage of the fairly recent discovery of the weight loss benefits of hot chilli peppers. While it is true that capsicum extract can speed the metabolism, as any spicy food will do, there is still little evidence to show that a product such as Capsiplex will really help the user ‘lose all the weight they want’. Until there is more concrete proof that Capsiplex produces results, or at least offers a more reasonable money back guarantee, it would be better not to spend any money on the brand.
