Paradoxine® is formulated from an extract of grains of paradise (Afromomum melegueta) . Also known as melegueta pepper or alligator pepper, grains of paradise is a perennial plant which, like ginger, is part of the Zingiberaceae family. It is native to West Africa where it is widely used both for its digestive benefits and aphrodisiac properties.
The beneficial effects of Aframomum melegueta are primarily linked to the presence of an active phenol compound called 6-paradol. It is this compound which is responsible for the plant's spicy taste, similar to that of ginger. The structure of 6-paradol is also close to that of some of the compounds found in ginger, such as zingerone, 6-gingerol and 6-shogaol. 6-paradol has been shown to be a powerful antioxidant which may also have a fat-burning effect in the body. This is why grains of paradise is often used as a natural fat-burner.
