Apollo’s Hegemony Capsaicin & Ginger is a dietary supplement containing standardized extracts from Capsicum annuum fruit and ginger root. Both have been used for ages in traditional medicine because of their great range of beneficial effects on health, such as their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, or the ability to enhance vascular and metabolic health.
Capsaicin is a natural phytochemical and a major pungent and bioactive compound found in red pepper (Capsicum annuum). The main mechanism of its activity is focused on activating TRPV1 (transient receptor potential vanilloid 1), which is responsible for the majority of the positive effects of capsaicin.
Capsaicin improves the health of the cardiovascular system. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (it may reduce CRP levels). It also exerts a positive effect on the blood lipid profile: apart from inhibiting the reactions of LDL oxidation, it increases the level of fasting serum HDL, reduces triglycerides, and lowers the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL.
Capsaicin efficiently helps to control weight and combat metabolic disorders. The activation of TRPV1 by capsaicin prevents adipogenesis and boosts energy metabolism. It can also reduce metabolic dysregulation through enhanced expression of adiponectin. Apart from that, it has been demonstrated to boost thermogenesis by increasing energy expenditure.
Studies on humans showed that supplementation with capsaicin can potentially reduce fatigue and improve physical performance. TRPV1 activation improves mitochondrial biogenesis and endurance. TRPV1 channels may also take part in some long-term adaptations caused by regular workout, such as muscular hypertrophy and ATP production in the muscles.
Ginger (Zingiberis officinale) is a spice whose significant role in the prevention of some health problems has been confirmed by numerous studies. It exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, supports healthy immune response, reduces the symptoms of nausea, and is able to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Apart from that, it amplifies the ability to capsaicin to support weight control by enhancing digestion, reducing appetite, and increasing metabolic rate.
To sum up, Apollo’s Hegemony Capsaicin & Ginger is an easy-to-use dietary supplement containing natural nutrients with health-improving properties that might otherwise be difficult to include in your regular diet.
