Nonpungent capsaicin analogs (capsinoids) increase energy expenditure

submitted by: Yoneshiro
Background: Capsinoids—nonpungent capsaicin analogs—are known to activate brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis and whole-body energy expenditure (EE) in small rodents. BAT activity can be assessed by [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose–positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in humans. Objectives: The aims of the current study were to examine the acute effects of capsinoid ingestion on EE and to analyze its relation to BAT activity in humans. Design: Eighteen healthy men aged 20–32 y...
