Unibar launches CapZfuel™ for optimal thermogenesis support
Houston, Texas – Unibar Corporation —a supplier of high-quality, science-based ingredients—announced the launch of CapZfuel™, a bioavailable and safe capsaicin extract that provides optimal thermogenesis support to better convert fat into energy.
Capsaicin, derived from Capsicum annuum, is the molecule within chili peppers that give them their pungency. But capsaicin also plays a role in helping the body burn excess fat through a process called non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT). In other words, it helps turn existing body fat into energy. CapZfuel is among the safest capsaicin extracts available. Contained in enteric-coated beadlets, CapZfuel is delivered directly to the intestines where it can be absorbed without unnecessary damage or irritation to the stomach and gut. This allows CapZfuel to more powerfully extend exercise duration by enhancing endurance and energy as a potent sports nutrition solution.
“Thermogenesis is an important function that utilizes the body’s fat as a fuel source and thereby helping to improve energy, reduce fatigue, and conserve muscle mass for better sports performance. COVID has resulted in an increase of at-home exercise and having a supplement to help burn fat safely and efficiently will help with consumer’s weight management and exercise goals,” said Mr. Sevanti Mehta, president of Unibar. “Our 8-week study on obesity-induced mice showed that those which consumed CapZfuel were able to significantly burn existing body fat as well as reduce lipid parameters such as cholesterol and triglycerides. This is significant as it reveals that the mice were able to experience increased energy expenditure and boosted resting metabolic rates during non-exercise activity thermogenesis, leading to better endurance.”
Because of its ability to boost endurance and energy, CapZfuel is suitable for dietary supplement formulations that aim to provide benefits for sports nutrition and weight management. By utilizing body fat as fuel, CapZfuel helps to conserve muscle mass, ensure fat loss, improve energy during both aerobic and anaerobic exercises, and boost resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure during NEAT. Unlike other capsaicin options on the market, CapZfuel is free from pharmaceutical excipients, like methacrylate, and achieves better dissolution and palatability without the use of surfactants and soothing agents.
CapZfuel is an innovative approach to formulating capsaicin and is manufactured according to ISO, cGMP, HAACP, and PMDA requirements. It is also certified kosher and halal.
Unibar is ready to help supplement brands test and launch their 2020 and 2021 sports nutrition and energy management formulations. To learn more about CapZfuel and request a sample, visit www.UnibarCorp.com.
