We all have heard of this fun sounding herb. So I want to take a moment and talk about why here at the VMI headquarters, we love us some grains of paradise.

 GP or Grains of paradise, aframomum melegueta is a species of the ginger family. Grains of paradise is a key component in three of our MAJOR fat loss products, White heat, Liquid L-carnitine Heat 1500, as well as Heat powder 1500.  We found that a daily intake of grains of paradise over a period of time showed a significant reduction of visceral fat in humans. This means, G.P. (Grains of paradise) may be an effective and safe tool/supplement for preventing visceral fat accumulation. The studies we found stated that a base dose of about 30mg daily was able to show slight but significant results.

 Starting off with our milder dosed products, not to mention stimulant free, L-carnitine Heat Liquid 1500, and Heat powder 1500. Both products are dosed at 15mg per serving, both which can be taken up to twice a day. That’s a combined 30m!

Next, we have our fat burner White heat which we dosed at 40mg per serving. We went above and beyond for your weight loss goals!

 Let's nerd out y’all!

The reason these compounds are so beneficial to weight loss, is because the human body is FULL of these little pathways and receptors. I like to describe them as plugs and sockets, or receptors. The ones we will be talking about specifically today are called the transient receptor potential vanilloid (TRVPV1) this receptor specifically responds well to hot peppers.

Let's make life easy and call it the capsaicin receptor.

Now, even though grains of paradise is part of the ginger family, the cool thing about it is that it can be further broken down into THREE other compounds.

These compounds are 6-paradol, 6-gingerol, and 6-shogaol. These compounds are similar in structure to capsaicin, to a degree.

Why do I bring this up? Well now that you had a mini science lesson, its easier for you to picture how grains of paradise actually works! Being that the compounds in grains of paradise have a similar structure to capsaicin itself , they are able to activate the same pathways.

The TRPV1 pathway responds very well to grains of paradise. We have BROWN FAT and WHITE FAT. This is important because Brown fat, otherwise known as the (BAT) or Brown adipose tissue is crucial to understanding why grains of paradise is able to help you lose weight.  “Brown fat” is the fat in your body that helps keep you warm and helps you stay insulated.

So that means when you feel cold and  start to feel your body trying to warm you up, that’s the BAT going into action Grains of paradise is known to Increase energy expenditure by activating your Brown fat. This is the “good fat” in your body because to put it simply, brown fat works with you to burn energy and calories!

In conclusion, we love grains of paradise because it helps wakeup the “good fat” in your body and with consistent use and proper nutrition, you will see positive weight loss results!
