Capsiate is known to increase whole body oxygen consumption possibly via the activation of uncoupling processes, but its effect at the skeletal muscle level remains poorly documented and conflicting. To clarify this issue, gastrocnemius muscle function and energetics were investigated in mice 2 h after a single intake of either vehicle (control) or purified capsiate (at 10 or 100 mg/kg body wt) through a multidisciplinary approach combining in vivo and in vitro measurements.

Capsiate Supplementation Reduces Oxidative Cost of Contraction in Exercising Mouse Skeletal Muscle In Vivo

Findings demonstrate that, in addition to its anti-obesity effect, capsiate supplementation improves oxidative metabolism in exercising muscle, which strengthen this compound as a natural compound for improving health.

Capsaicin and Its Effect on Exercise Performance, Fatigue and Inflammation after Exercise

Capsaicin might attenuate neuromuscular fatigue through alterations in afferent signaling or neuromUScular relaxation kinetics, perhaps mediated via the sarco-endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA) pumps, thereby increasing the rate of Ca2- reuptake and relaxation.

Acute Capsaicin Supplementation Improved Resistance Exercise Performance Performed After a High-Intensity Intermittent Running in Resistance-Trained Men

Acute Capsaicin Analog Supplementation Improves 400 M and 3000 M Running Time-Trial Performance.

Investigation of the acute effect of CAP supplementation on short and middle distance running time-trial performance, maximum heart rate (HR), and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) found no statistically significant differences for HR and RPE in any condition.

The effects of capsaicin and capsaicinoid analogs on metabolic molecular targets in highly energetic tissues and cell types

Findings demonstrate capsaicinoids appear to alter molecular metabolic signaling, regulate hunger and satiety, blood metabolites, and catecholamine release, along with influencing metabolic rate.

Acute Capsaicin Supplementation Improves 1,500-m Running Time-Trial Performance and Rate of Perceived Exertion in Physically Active Adults

It is shown that acute capsaicin supplementation improves middle distance running (1,500 m) performance and reduced RPE in physically active adults and lactate increased across time for both conditions without significant differences between (p > 0.05).

Acute Capsaicin Supplementation Improves Resistance Training Performance in Trained Men

Investigation of the acute effect of capsaicin supplementation on performance, rate of perceived exertion (RPE), and blood lactate concentrations during resistance exercise in healthy trained young men found it improves lower-body resistance training performance intrained young men.

Capsaicinoid and Capsinoids as an Ergogenic Aid: A Systematic Review and the Potential Mechanisms Involved.

While more mechanistic studies are necessary to confirm these outcomes in humans, the available scientific literature appears to suggest that these compounds could be considered an effective nutritional strategy to improve exercise performance.

Capsaicin Analogue Supplementation Does Not Improve 10 km Running Time-Trial Performance in Male Amateur Athletes: A Randomized, Crossover, Double-Blind and Placebo-Controlled Study

Two doses of a 12 mg Capsaicin analogue supplement did not improve performance and physiological responses in a 10 km running time-trial in amateur athletes.

Effects of Capsinoids on Daily Physical Activity, Body Composition and Cold Hypersensitivity in Middle-Aged and Older Adults: A Randomized Study

The results suggest that the continuous oral ingestion of capsinoids gains PA through anti-inflammation effect in the brain as well as reduces fat accumulation and chills in inactive and older humans.



Downregulation of uncoupling protein-3 in vivo is linked to changes in muscle mitochondrial energy metabolism as a result of capsiate administration.

It is shown that capsiate administration induced a UCP3 downregulation coupled with an increased mitochondrial ATP synthesis, whereas the muscle force-generating capacity was unchanged, which suggests that a decrease in muscle efficiency and/or additional noncontractile ATP-consuming mechanisms result from UCP 3 downregulation.

Effects of capsinoid ingestion on energy expenditure and lipid oxidation at rest and during exercise

The ingestion of 10 mg of capsinoids increased adrenergic activity, energy expenditure, and resulted in a shift in substrate utilization toward lipid at rest but had little effect during exercise or recovery.

Protective effects of lactic acid on force production in rat skeletal muscle

It is concluded that acidification counteracts the depressing effects of elevated [K+]o on muscle excitability and force, indicating that, in contrast to the often suggested role for acidosis as a cause of muscle fatigue, acidosis may protect against fatigue.

In vivo reduction in ATP cost of contraction is not related to fatigue level in stimulated rat gastrocnemius muscle

The results demonstrate that the reduction in ATP cost of contraction during in vivo stimulation of rat gastrocnemius muscle is not related to the fatigue level; and surprisingly, this reduction was significantly larger during the fatiguing protocols compared with the non‐fatiguing protocol.

In Vivo Effects of Uncoupling Protein-3 Gene Disruption on Mitochondrial Energy Metabolism*

The data presented here provide the first evidence of uncoupling activity by UCP3 in skeletal muscle in vivo, and the increased efficiency of ATP production may account for the significant increase in the ratio of ATP to ADP in the muscle of U CP3KO mice.

Effects of pH on the length-dependent twitch potentiation in skeletal muscle.

It is indicated that length dependence of potentiation in intact skeletal muscle is abolished by lowering the pH, and the mechanism of length-dependent potentiation may be closely related to thelength dependence of Ca(2+) sensitivity, and changes in the charge potential of the myofilaments may be important in regulating this relationship.

Capsiate, a Nonpungent Capsaicin Analog, Increases Endurance Swimming Capacity of Mice by Stimulation of Vanilloid Receptors

The results suggest that the oral administration of capsiate enhanced fat oxidation and spared carbohydrate utilization, and consequently increased the endurance swimming capacity of the mice via stimulation of their vanilloid receptors.

Mild mitochondrial uncoupling impacts cellular aging in human muscles in vivo

It is shown that mitochondrial function is unchanged with age in mildly uncoupled tibialis anterior muscle despite a high respiratory rate in adults, which supports mild uncoupling as a mechanism protecting mitochondrial function and contributing to the paradoxical longevity of the most active muscle fibers.

Potentiation in mouse lumbrical muscle without myosin light chain phosphorylation: Is resting calcium responsible?

The increase in isometric twitch force observed in fast-twitch rodent muscles during or after activity, known universally as potentiation, is normally associated with myosin regulatory light chain
