Capsaicin supplements can boost vitamin D, boost immune system, boost sleep
In a new study, researchers found that a supplement that contains capsaicin, a chemical found in chili peppers, can boost levels of vitamin D in the body.
The researchers said the capsaicins could be particularly useful for people with low vitamin D levels, as the capsicins have been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect.
The study, published in the journal Molecular Medicine, found that capsaicinus oil, which contains 2.3% capsaicinis, reduced the production of inflammatory proteins in blood cells and could prevent the inflammation from worsening.
The results of the study, which looked at people over a period of four months, were surprising, said the lead researcher, Dr. Jumana Rao, of the Center for Molecular Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles.
The scientists used a compound called CAPT-19 to test the effects of capsaicens.
CAPT is a potent anti-oxidant, which means that it blocks the production and release of harmful molecules in the blood, such as prostaglandins and growth factors, the researchers said.
It also has been shown in studies to reduce the inflammatory response to infection.
“The compound also seems to reduce oxidative stress, which is a hallmark of aging,” Rao said.
“A reduction in oxidative stress is important for reducing inflammation, and it’s an important component of the overall health of the body.”
Researchers found that the capsid-enhancing compound increased levels of a gene known as the NF-κB pathway in the red blood cells of people with type 2 diabetes.
Researchers said this gene controls inflammation and could be involved in the progression of the disease.
The capsid enzyme, which converts fats into oxygen, is thought to play a role in the development of type 2.
Other compounds found in capsaicini oil also seem to have anti-aging effects.
These include capsaicaridin, which can improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation, researchers said in the study.
A study published in May in the Journal of Nutrition found that caposidine, another compound that is used in chili pepper extracts, showed anti-cancer activity in human cells.
“We’re not sure if the capsitin-rich capsid is the sole mechanism,” Rao told The Associated Press.
“It could be that there are other compounds that have similar properties that are able to fight inflammation.”
Dr. Todas Kocijancic, a professor of nutrition and medicine at the Medical University of São Paulo in Brazil, said capsaicinos have a wide range of benefits.
He said the research may offer a new avenue to explore the use of capsicum to help people with diabetes.
A lot of research has focused on the use and potential use of dietary capsaicinates in the prevention and treatment of type 1 diabetes, but the actual benefit in the treatment of this disease is less clear, Kocijo said.
He noted that the current evidence is not very strong, so a lot of work needs to be done to figure out whether it’s possible to use capsaicina to prevent type 1 type 1 and other metabolic diseases in people with these conditions.
A common misconception is that the caposides are a drug, Koccijancics said.
However, they are actually components of a nutritional supplement, he said.
For example, capsaicine can be used to help boost vitamin K levels in the brain, which may help to prevent neurological damage in people who have diabetes.
The research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health.
