AfperFIT™ is an extract of Aframomum melegueta seed produced by Vidya Herbs, Inc.
Aframomum melegueta is a spice also referred to as Grains-of-Paradise. Originating in Africa, the peppers were exported to Europe during the Middle Ages, along with other spices such as ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Its origins go back to the West African coast or Melegueta, the “pepper coast” as the region was once called. Historically, Grains-of-Paradise was used in a similar fashion to black pepper but it is less pungent in nature
Early research suggests that AfperFIT enhances the activity of brown adipose tissue (BAT).*
This type of adipose tissue is responsible for thermogenesis in mammals to produce heat in order to maintain body temperature. To achieve this, BAT has a high rate of energy expenditure. By increasing the thermogenic activity of this tissue, energy expenditure is enhanced.
scientists have found a way to extract ceramides from Kinnyaku, a plant native to warm subtropical and tropical Asia regions, which may promote nourishing the skin from within. Since plant ceramides are chemically identical to the ones found in human skin cells, this ingredient has the potential to provide continuous maintenance through supplementation. Researchers wanted to know: can a small amount of konjac ceramides supplemented orally improve skin health in a vigorous way? Enter SKIN-CERA®.
