Chilli pill cuts as many calories as 80 minutes walk

LONDON: Scientists claimed to have developed a slimming pill that can burn up as many calories as 80 minutes of walk or else a 25 minute jog, while you sit. The pill Capsiplex which is made from hot peppers and capsicum, utilizes the weight-loss potential of red-hot peppers.

Chilli and capsicum help accelerate the metabolism, thus, helping people lose weight more rapidly. But, consuming these chillies or their extract in large quantities causes irritation as these are terribly hot.

The scientists overcame this crisis while developing the capsule. The pill eats up the calories with no causing any irritation, the Daily Mail reported.

Trials of the pill conducted at University of Oklahoma in U.S. showed teenagers taking Capsiplex burned off 278 more calories before, in and after a bout of exercise than those on placebos.

The pill is previously in use in the U.S. Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt and Britney Spears are known to have used the pill.
