Albany, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2005
Many sinus and headache sufferers appear to be experiencing a strange side effect from the worldÂs first hot pepper nasal spray. Apparently this ÂpositiveÂ side effect amounts to a reduced appetite and possibly increased metabolic activity.
Within the past year, Sinus Buster all natural hot pepper nasal spray has become a phenomenon in the lucrative ÂSinus & HeadacheÂ market. When it was first introduced via the internet in early 2004, Sinus Buster was viewed as a joke of sorts, but within only a few months, this spicy supplement became the most talked about remedy among physicians and their patients suffering from a variety of chronic sinus, headache and allergy conditions.
Yet as word of the miraculous properties of Sinus Buster nasal spray spread across the world, nobody ever imagined this incredible formula would also prove to be a potential remedy for obesity. Yes Â believe it or not, this seemingly miraculous substance may also prove to be an important tool for appetite control which could obviously lead toweight loss and weight control.
The main active ingredient in Sinus Buster is Capsaicin, a natural compound found in hot peppers of the Capsicum family. This family includes mild peppers such as ÂPaprika,Â all the way up to the notoriously hot ÂHabanerasÂ.
Capsaicin has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, and todayÂs medical experts recommend this natural substance for a variety of medical conditions. Cardiologists regularly recommend a diet supplemented with hot peppers to aid in the prevention of heart disease, stroke and other circulatory related conditions.
ItÂs well regarded by many researchers that capsaicin increases the metabolic activity in humans and animals, but to what extent researchers still are not certain. Nonetheless the clinical facts are real. Several controlled studies have shown conclusively that capsaicin increases circulatory activity while also suppressing the appetite. As far as most researchers are concerned, the effects of capsaicin are both Âexpected and surprisingÂ in the same breath. For instance, recent studies have shown that a meal containing high levels of capsaicin can reduce the average calorie intake by more than 200 calories per day.
SiCap Industries, the exclusive makers of Sinus Buster capsaicin nasal spray are equally surprised by the supposed weight controlling possibilities of capsaicin in their unique formula. According to SiCap officials, they never dreamed their formula would also aide in weight loss, but as more and more customers began to report the side effect of appetite suppression, SiCapÂs Research and Development team has begun to take those reports seriously.
In response to the inspiring anecdotal evidence, the company has been concentrating on the development of a super efficient capsaicin based formula designed specifically to boost the metabolism while suppressing the appetite.
ÂWhen Sinus Buster was first launched in 2004 we never dreamed it would become so many things to so many people. First it was the way it stops headaches which we already knew about, but then it became clear that Buster could also relieve many chronic sinus conditions and allergies, but now weÂre hearing about appetite control. As crazy as it sounds, there is definite scientific evidence showing capsaicin suppresses the appetite. In fact since we first started hearing this from customers, I started using it all the time and IÂll tell you whatÂ .it seems to work. Who knows though, maybe itÂs a placebo effect due to the testimonials from our customers,Â admits Wayne Perry, inventor of the Sinus Buster formula and president of SiCap Industries.
Interestingly enough, the exact effect of PerryÂs formula is about to be tested in a Class 1 clinical trial that will be conducted through a major European research institute. Although Perry is hesitant to disclose the exact details, he does admit the deal is nearly complete, and if the results prove to be what the proposed researchers believe, Sinus Buster may find a whole new market Â ÂWeight LossÂ.
ÂThereÂs no doubt weÂre excited about the possibility of a clincal trial, but we are also taking the whole thing with a grain of salt. Besides we already sell a weight loss supplement ÂPepper BoostÂ which is a metabolic stimulator and an appetite suppressant. We have a lot of customers whoÂve definitely benefited from Pepper Boost, but Sinus Buster was not designed to aid in weight control,Â says Perry.
SiCap is also close to releasing the worldÂs first tinctured herbal infusion made with natural mushrooms and peppers. Originally, the company planned on marketing this new extract as an additive in their original Pepper Boost formula. Then after tedious experimentation, SiCapÂs ÂResearch & DevelopmentÂ team surprised their corporate superiors by recommending this new extract be used as an exclusive product.
ÂWhen I came into that meeting, the board members expected a dissertation about the new and improved Pepper Boost formula using our new extract. We shocked the hell out of them by recommending this new extract as an exclusive new formula to be marketed on itsÂ own. Three drops of this stuff in a 16 ounce bottle of water is equivalent to an entire two ounce bottle of Pepper Boost and it also contains the immune boosting properties of polysaccharides found in medicinal mushrooms. The properties of this new extract changed the plans of our company almost overnight. We had planned on unveiling the new Pepper Boost formula sometime this month. We even had the new labels ready because we were planning to offer this new formula in 32 ounce bottles so people could drink several ounces a day, but once we started working with our own peppershroom extract, we realized this additive was powerful enough to stand on its' own," says Perry.
SiCap's "Peppershroom" tincture is made with four varieties of mushrooms and three varieties of hot peppers. In addition, SiCap adds an organic Green Tea extract, Cinnamon Bark oil and Peppermint extract to the mix for an intoxicating aroma and flavor. According to the company, they recommend adding only (3-5) drops to 16 ounces of water or juice at least three times daily prior to eating.
Although SiCap's management team believes clinical trials using their Sinus Buster formula to combat obesity may prove positive, they also claim the true answer will be found through the oral ingestion of Capsaicin.
ÂSinus Buster was designed to fight chronic headaches, sinus and allergy conditions, but we never dreamed it could also help with an overactive appetite, but I do believe although it does seem to help many people, the true answer to controlling the appetite will come from oral ingestion, but we're also not sure what the effects of our peppershroom extract may have when taken intranasally. In fact we may even add our peppershroom extract to a new maximum strength Sinus Buster formula....down the road that is. Uhh Ohh, IÂm giving away company secrets again,Â boasts Perry with a sly grin.
PerryÂs new mushroom pepper extract is truly as powerful as itsÂ inventor lets on. I placed three drops in a 20 ounce bottle of water and the results were astounding. As I shook the bottle, the water appeared to bubble and boil like nothing IÂd ever seen. Then as I removed the top and sniffed the mixture, the immediate discharge cleared my sinuses instantly. As the bubbling water cleared, I hesitantly drank a third of the bottle in one long gulp. There was a sudden rush and a slight burn around my lips and down through my insides, but it felt refreshing and oddly energizing. Only minutes before I drank the stuff, I had been craving a juicy Burger King cheeseburger, but within minutes after drinking this strange water I had no appetite at all -- of course I did just down an entire bottle of water, but still this peppershroom extract seemed to really help decrease my appetite.
The jury is still out on exactly how capsaicin works to suppress the appetite, but many researchers do believe itÂs much more than a placebo effect. In fact, a handful of small studies have shown that capsaicin positively reduces the appetite in laboratory rats and mice. If these studies prove out in humans, capsaicin may evolve as an important element of weight loss and overall metabolic health.
Moreover, many well known weight loss supplements do contain some form of capsaicin in their formulas. So it does appear the weight loss industry takes the science of capsaicin quite seriously.
