The spicy taste of cayenne pepper comes from the active ingredient capsaicinin the peppers. Research shows that consuming capsaicin will increase the body’s metabolic rate (a.k.a energy expenditure) by 15- 20% for up to two hours after consumption. Other studies confirm this and show that capsaicin increases fat oxidation, allowing the body to better use fat as fuel. Cayenne pepper is well known for circulatory abilities.
Cayenne has shown promising abilities as well in suppressing an outrageous appetite and cut cravings for fat, salt and sugar, which in turn helps keep your diet and strict protocols to eating clean easier.
