About aXivite and the clinical trial “Effects of Phenyl-Capsaicin on Weight Loss and Body Composition”: 
aXivite (phenylcapsaicin) is a novel functional ingredient derived from the natural compound, capsaicin. In a recently completed healthy human, blinded, randomized, clinical study, aXivite demonstrated statistically significant body fat loss, an improved body-shape and lean mass profile and improved gut health, as measured by a decrease in serum zonulin. At both the low and high dose tested, aXivite showed excellent tolerability and safety profile over the 8 week treatment period.

The eight-week study was conducted as a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group clinical trial of male and female subjects recruited at a single investigational center in Northeast Ohio. The study was conducted following ICH-GCP guidelines to ensure subject safety and scientific integrity of the data. 39 patients completed the study - 12 placebo treated, 15 high dose (1,12 mg/day) aXivite treated and 12 low dose (0,560 mg/day) aXivite treated.
