ANN ARBOR, MI—Berg Nutrition, a specialty nutraceutical distributor, has been named the exclusive US distributor of aXivite phenylcapsaicin, a synthetic form of capsaicin developed by aXichem, Malmo, Sweden. Capsaicin is the active ingredient found in chili peppers and can be used to alleviate pain, reduce blood pressure, control weight, and improve gut health. Synthetic capsaicin is four times more bioactive than natural capsaicin and does not have the strong, hot flavor, which can make natural capsaicin difficult to consume.
