Cayenne pepper pills?

has anyone taken these? do they help with weight loss? what do I need to expect after taking these? any personal experiences appreciated. and also name any other pills that you've taken that showed results.

btw, I'm 21 years old and I'm 4'11 130 lbs... trying to lose weight and just want to take a natural supplement to help with the weight loss. not relying on pills either.

Answer on Cayenne pepper pills?

Capsaicin in peppers is supposed to have an effect on the metabolism (boost) as is cinnamon...don't count on taking any such supplement and seeing noticable weight loss...if they help at all, you may never realize it and you still must eat right and exercise...

Look up the benefits of cayenne (or capsaicin) so you'll see what the pros and cons are for yourself...it may well be a waste of money, but if there are other benefits then you may choose to go ahead with it for those benefits and just hope it gives your metabolism a boost on top of that...

I'm not aware of any supplements, natural or otherwise, that have a significant effect on weight loss...it still all boils down to eating and exercising...
