Seems potent so far
I bought this with the intention of using it before a workout as recommended on the Dr. Oz show. I began taking the supplement after dinner and I must admit, the cayenne pepper is quite potent! I could feel the burn of the spice as the gelatin melted and made its way down my esophagus. Over the next few days, I found my appetite increased (which may have been due to the thermogenic effect that was mentioned on the show). So far, I have found myself eating more and have not seen an increase in weight - thank goodness! I haven't seen a decrease either. Overall, I think I will need more time to better accurately judge the effectiveness of the supplement as a weight loss aid.
