Green Tea, Capsaicin, and Ginger Extract May Help With Weight Loss, Lower BMI

While most experts recommend exercise and a balanced diet as the best way to lose weight, sometimes people need a little more help. A recent study suggests that taking a daily supplement of green tea, capsaicin, and ginger extracts may help with weight loss and improvements in BMI.


Participants in the study included 50 overweight women. Half of the women were given a supplement containing 500 mg of green tea, 100 mg of capsaicin, and 200 mg of ginger extracts and the other half were given a placebo. The study period lasted for eight weeks.


At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted an average weight loss of 3.9 lb. in the supplement group, compared to 1.1 lb. increase in weight in the placebo group. They also noted a 0.7 kg/m2 decrease in BMI in the supplement group and a 0.1 kg/m2 increase in the placebo group. They also noted improved insulin resistance and decreases in serum insulin concentrations in the supplement group, when compared with the placebo.


Researchers from Kashan University of Medical Sciences in Iran conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on June 7, 2017, in Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism.


Capsicum extract is created from capsicum peppers and provides the health benefits of the peppers without the burning sensation that usually accompanies raw peppers. Previous studies suggest that hot peppers may help with weight loss. Theyโ€™re also high in lycopene, which has been associated with health benefits ranging from heart health to skin health to bone health.


The health benefits associated with green tea are usually attributed to its high level of catechins, which have been linked to various health benefits including better cholesterol, weight management and improved heart health. In addition to green tea, catechins can also be found in red wine, apples, and berries.


Ginger is used as a folk remedy for upset stomach in cultures across the globe. It has also been linked to easing joint pain, calming headaches, and relieving intense menstrual cramps. It can be consumed raw, cooked, or in tea form.
