If you want to lose weight, eating hot peppers as part of your diet can help, says David Ashley, founder and President of Ashley Food Company. Studies have shown that hot peppers can curb appetite, burn fat, and inhibit fat cell growth. Ashley Food Company’s all-natural products, such as Envy, are high in hot pepper content, delivering a good dose of the diet benefits of peppers.
Sudbury, Massachusetts (PRWeb) September 27, 2011 – David Ashley, founder and president of the Ashley Food Company, wants dieters to know that hot peppers can help them lost weight. “When you reach for a beverage to take the heat off your mouth and throat, it’s good to know that there’s gain for your pain,” he says. “Hot peppers can do a number of things to help you shed pounds.”
For example, scientists at the Laval University in Quebec had one group of test participants take cayenne pepper at breakfast. Those who did had a smaller appetite throughout the day, so they ate less. A Purdue University study also suggests that peppers can curb appetite.
In a recent article on the health benefits of hot peppers in the Las Cruces Sun-News by S. Derrickson Moore, New Mexico State University Regents Professor of Horticulture Paul Bosland states that research shows hot peppers “can help lower cholesterol and help burn calories by triggering a thermodynamic bum, which speeds up the metabolism.”
Moore’s article goes on to say that, “A study at Korea’s Daegu University showed that capsaicin-treated animals ‘developed less body fat and accumulated smaller fat droplets within fat cells’ and gained 8 percent less weight than a control group of animals.”
Other research indicates that capsaicin from cayenne and other chile peppers may inhibit the growth of fat cells by activating AMP-activated protein kinase.
“Getting hot peppers into your diet on a regular basis not only has lots of other health benefits, but it can also be part of your program to shed unwanted pounds,” says Ashley. He particularly recommends his Envy hot sauce, which is “made from select jalapeno peppers and a very rare jalapeno extract, so it will kick-start your metabolism and burn extra calories.”
