- Data gathered from population studies indicates the consumption of capsaicin, the main ingredient in the capsicum that causes weight loss is associated with a lower prevalence of obesity.
- In a human study conducted at the Division of Kinesiology, in Québec, Canada, the addition of red pepper to meals significantly increased diet-induced thermo genesis or heat production and lipid oxidation (the burning of fat for energy).
- Pepper has the potential to stimulate gastric secretions and raise metabolic rate. By increasing metabolism, the body burns fat at a faster than normal rate. Studies show that eating spicy foods like black pepper increase metabolism rate by as much as 8% for hours after you eat them.
- Capsicum extracts are proven natural and safe to use with tons of other health benefits besides weight loss.
- It naturally suppresses your diet so you won’t feel hungry most of the time so you don’t have to eat as much as you do before.

These are just some of the advantages of capsicum proven by experts in weight loss. It just proves that capsicum has unbound health and weight loss benefits that other supplements don’t have.
