AMAZING RESULTS FROM COCONUT OIL & CHILLIS
The combined effect of Chilli and an MCT in CHILLI BROTHERS Pure Coconut Oil products are something worth shouting about. So, Thermic effect of food (TEF) or dietary induced thermogenesis (DIT), is the amount of energy expenditure above the resting metabolic rate due to the cost of processing food for use and storage.
Ok, the research studied has been somewhat shortened, but will show that there is real world research and science out there behind what we are saying... Here is a short paper explaining the effects of taking on a small amount of Coconut Oil (an MCT) and Chilli; basically, Chilli and Coconut oil at the start of or lunchtime will increase your metabolic rate, promoting weight loss and prevent weight gain even when you are at rest... in conjunction with a healthy diet, (not cream cakes and burgers!).
Included is the paper below so you can read the research and a link below that to allow for verification of these claims as FACTS!
Combined medium-chain triglyceride and chilli feeding increases diet-induced thermogenesis in humans.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE:
Capsaicin, the active ingredient of chilli, and medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) have been shown to increase diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT), improve satiety and decrease energy intake. Combinations of thermogenic ingredients have previously been investigated such as mustard and chilli, or capsaicin and green tea with positive effects. The aim of this study was to investigate the combined effects of chilli and MCT feeding on DIT and satiety in healthy volunteers.
Seven healthy volunteers were tested on four occasions following an overnight fast. Volunteers were fed a breakfast containing chilli and MCT oil, chilli and sunflower oil, bell pepper and sunflower oil or bell pepper and MCT oil. Satiety and gastrointestinal comfort were measured using visual analogue scales (VAS) and category scales. Baseline energy expenditure, and DIT and fat oxidation were measured for 6 h using indirect calorimetry.
There were significant differences in DIT between the meals (P = 0.003) which increased from 7.0 % for pepper-sunflower oil to 10.7 % for chilli-MCT oil. The predominant differences existed between the chilli-MCT oil and chilli-sunflower oil (P = 0.013), between chilli-MCT oil and pepper-sunflower oil (P = 0.007) and between pepper-sunflower oil and pepper-MCT oil (P = 0.004). There was a significant difference in fat oxidation between the pepper-sunflower oil and pepper-MCT oil (P = 0.032). There were no differences in any VAS satiety parameters or gastrointestinal comfort ratings.
Adding chilli and MCT to meals increases DIT by over 50 % which over time may cumulate to help induce weight loss and prevent weight gain or regain.
