What is AFPERFIT?
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
- Increased metabolic rate (energy expenditure)*
- Provides a thermogenic effect without the use of harsh stimulants*
- May enhance the activity of metabolically active adipose (fat) tissue known as BAT (brown adipose tissue)*
How AFPERFIT Works
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.
How is AFPERFIT made?
Dried Aframomum melegueta (Grains-of-Paradise) seeds imported directly from Africa undergo a process known as supercritical CO2 extraction where high pressure is used to create an oleoresin that is then spray-dried with non-GMO maltodextrin to create the AfperFIT powder. AfperFIT is standardized to the active constituent, 6-paradol at a concentration of 2%.
AFPERFIT Recommended Use:
2 servings per day // 250 mg per serving
