A weight loss supplement made up of black pepper, caffeine and capsaicin – the ingredient that makes the pepper hot was just tested by the University of Oklahoma Health and Exercise Department. It was determined that the supplement called tri-pepper blend could potentially burn as many calories as walking for 20 minutes.
Joel T. Cramer the assistant professor of exercise physiology tested the supplement and found an increase of energy expenditure of three to six percent. In the study one group was given the supplement while the other group was given a placebo. A metabolic rate test was than given to both groups measuring oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide produced to determine if the supplement did increase energy expenditure. The study did prove the benefits of the weight loss supplement.
