OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of Capsicum spp extract (CEX) and capsaicin (CAP) on endothelial nitric oxide release and protection against lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced cellular apoptosis. MATERIAL AND METHOD Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) were isolated from newborn cords. Evaluation of cytotoxicity was performed by MTT assay. Endothelial nitric oxide (NO) production was evaluated by Griess reaction. Alteration in eNOS expression was detected by westernblot analysis. To… 

o-extracted bioactive compounds in Capsicum fruit extracts prevent he cytotoxic effects of capsaicin on B 104 neuroblastoma cells

It is suggested that other ytotoxicity euroblastoma cells oltammetry co-extracted compounds within the ethanolic extracts interact antagonistic with the cytotoxic effect of capsaicin and their interactions should be further investigated.

Capsaicin: Current Understanding in Therapeutic Effects, Drug Interaction, and Bioavailability

Current experimental evidence of capsaicin research focusing on its pharmacological properties, interaction with drugs and ways to improve the bioavailability are reported, to provide a general orientation for further investigation.

Ingested capsaicinoids can prevent low-fat–high-carbohydrate diet and high-fat diet-induced obesity by regulating the NADPH oxidase and Nrf2 pathways

CAPs may at least partially reduce adverse effects due to high-fat diet and sucrose consumption through regulation of energy metabolism, oxidative stress, and proteins involved in vasoprotection.

Tolerability of Capsaicinoids from Capsicum Extract in a Beadlet Form: A Pilot Study

The escalating dose levels of CAPs in a beadlet form product found was tolerable and safe for weight management studies and further longer term studies are required to explore the tolerability of the product.

Capsaicinoids: a spicy solution to the management of obesity?

Although capsaicin intake appears to be a safe practice, further studies will be needed to ascertain the safety of regular long-term consumption, observations reinforce the idea that consumption of Capsaicinoids and capsinoids may be helpful to facilitate obesity management.

Capsaicinoids supplementation decreases percent body fat and fat mass: adjustment using covariates in a post hoc analysis

Results suggest potential benefits of Capsaicinoids (CAPs) on body fat and fat mass in post hoc analysis and suggest further studies are required to explore pharmacological, physiological, and metabolic benefits of both chronic and acute CAPs consumption.

Capsicum cultivated under adverse conditions in Southern Japan produces higher concentrations of antioxidants and pungent components

It is concluded that Capsicum cultivated in harsh environments produced beneficial effects such as higher levels of antioxidants and capsaicinoids in seeds and placenta; thus, they show merit as a viable commercial crop in Japan.



Mechanism of potent antiperoxidative effect of capsaicin.

Capsaicin blocks HIV protease inhibitor ritonavir-induced vascular dysfunction in porcine pulmonary arteries.

Capsaicin effectively inhibits the detrimental effects of HIV protease inhibitor ritonavir on vasomotor functions of porcine pulmonary arteries and may suggest that capsaicin could have clinical applications to prevent vascular and pulmonary complications of HAART drugs in HIV patients.

Pharmacological characterisation of capsaicin-induced relaxations in human and porcine isolated arteries

The capsaicin-induced relaxations of the human and porcine distal coronary arteries are not mediated by CGRP, NK1, NO, vanilloid receptors, voltage-sensitive calcium channels, K+ channels or cAMP-mediated mechanisms, and are likely to be attributed to a non-specific, C GRP-independent mechanism.

Influence of Dietary Curcumin, Capsaicin and Garlic on the Antioxidant Status of Red Blood Cells and the Liver in High-Fat-Fed Rats

Dietary hypolipidemic spices were effective in reducing the oxidant stress, which was indicated by countering the depleted antioxidant molecules and antioxidant enzymes in erythrocytes and liver, and decreasing the elevated lipid peroxide content.

Impaired capsaicin-induced relaxation of coronary arteries in a porcine model of the metabolic syndrome.

Data indicate that TRPV1 channels are functionally expressed in the coronary circulation and mediate endothelium-dependent vasodilation through a mechanism involving nitric oxide and K+ channels.

Nitric-Oxide Mediated Effects of Transdermal Capsaicin Patches on the Ischemic Threshold in Patients with Stable Coronary Disease

Transdermal Capsaicin may improve ischemic threshold in patients with stable coronary disease, probably through arteriolar vasodilation, and increased capsaicin-induced NO availability could represent the principal mechanism of action.
