Capsaicin America The Winter Samphire #MakeAMovieHealthy

 

You may or may not have noticed, but the hashtag #MakeAMovieHealthy is trending all over twitter at the moment, some corkers are coming out including Silence of the Yams, Guardians of the Gluten free, Dark Knight Benches and Planet of the Grapes. Well, keeping in line with the supplement and nutrition theme, here's ours :)

For those who don't know, Capsaicin is a component of the chilli, and is an irritant to humans resulting in a burning sensation upon contact with our body, particularly the cells in our mouth! Capsaicin is great at increasing metabolic rate via a process known as thermogenesis, consequently it is commonly found as an ingredient in weight management (fat burning) supplements such as Advanced Dietics T6 Fat Incineration  You will see this under the name Capsicum, which is the species of fruit containing Capsaicin.

Oh, and Samphire is a nice, naturally salty plant from the parsley family, and is generally considered to be a vegetable...so it must be healthy, right?
