What are grains of paradise?
The Aframomum melegueta plant, which is responsible for the grains of paradise spice, comes from the Zingiberaceae plant family; it is similar to ginger. The plant pods contain seeds that are red-brown. These seeds give a peppery, spicy flavor and are often used in cooking. Grains of paradise are also known by other names, such as alligator pepper, melegueta pepper, Guinea grains fom wisa and ossame.
Several compounds inside these seeds create their pungent spice flavor and aroma. However, the compounds may also aid in burning fat. These powerful compounds include 6-paradol, 6-shogaol, 6-gingerdione and 6-gingerol. Of these, the most vital compounds offering benefits to your health include 6-paradol and 6-gingerol, with 6-gingerol being found in ginger as well.
So why would someone consider taking grains of paradise pills? To answer that question, let's look at some of the top grains of paradise extract benefits.
Grains of Paradise Benefits
Also known as melegueta pepper or alligator pepper, grains of paradise is a perennial plant that, 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. This compound is responsible for the plant's spicy taste, similar to 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.
There are a number of star performer plants with fat-burning effects. However, grains of paradise are often chosen over others because of their efficacy at reducing adipose tissue and their absence of unwelcome side-effects. Other natural fat-burners contain substances like caffeine, to which some people are sensitive and — in some cases — can have a negative effect on the central nervous system.
