Dear Sylvia
I have read that extract of cayenne pepper does increase metabolism, but I don't know to what extent this can affect weightloss considering the tiny quantities that are ingested. I don't know about turmeric. I do not approve of the Slender Wonder diet because I do not think that it is based on sound scientific and dietetic principles. It sounds like a fad starvation diet to me. It would be safer and more sensible to spend money on consulting a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), so that she/he can help you with a balanced slimming diet. Combine the diet from the dietitian with daily aerobic exercise such as cycling, skipping or brisk walking to achieve the best results.
Best regards
