“It is a joy to present the new data about the impact of aXivite and phenylcapsaicin at this year’s Vitafoods Europe. aXivite has unique characteristics that seems to go beyond the ones of natural capsaicin when it comes to positive impact on physical training and weight control. I am very pleased that several new consumer products will hit the market this year containing our innovative ingredient,” says Lucas Altepost, VP and VP Sales and Marketing at aXichem.

About phenylcapsaicin and aXivite®
aXichem's proprietary molecule, phenylcapsaicin, combines the naturally occurring phenyl group with capsaicin, connected by a triple bond. The result is an innovative natural analog capsaicin with high purity, which in several studies has been shown to have the same health-promoting properties, as well as some unique benefits, as natural capsaicin. Phenylcapsaicin is approved under Novel Food in the EU and GRAS Food in the USA and is marketed for dietary supplements and functional foods under the brand name aXivite®.
