Red Pepper For Weight Loss

21. May, 2010





Using food for weight loss might sound a little counter-intuitive, but it can be done- red peppers are a rich source of capsicum, one of the best fat-burning chemicals out there. Though capsicum is probably best known as the natural chemical that makes hot things taste hot, the same action it uses to make your mouth perceive heat can be used to make you lose weight.

How Are Red Peppers Good for You?


Red peppers have been taken medicinally for centuries. They’ve been used to:

  • Fight infections.
  • Improve digestion.
  • Boost circulation.
  • Detoxify the body.

Red pepper has has many other uses throughout history, but unfortunately many of these have gone unrecorded. It’s only recently that we’ve been able to break red peppers down into their component chemicals, and really discover the kind of potential they have as medicine. Though medical science has only recently discovered the chemicals behind all of red pepper’s health benefits, we know that capsicum is a key player. The funny thing is, a lot of capsicum’s benefits come from how good it is at “tricking” your body.

Everyone who’s ever bitten into a hot pepper knows how much it feels like biting into something that has a high temperature. Even if you pull a pepper right out of the refrigerator, it will still feel hot to your mouth because of capsicum. When capsicum is ingested, it triggers your body to dilate your peripheral blood vessels, and can even cause you to sweat. This can help improve circulation, keep your fingers and toes from feeling cold, and more. When it comes to weight loss, this is part of the “thermogenic effect.”

Red Peppers and the Thermogenic Effect


Not all researchers can agree on how the thermogenic effect works, exactly, but what we do know is that it’s a safe, natural way to stimulate weight loss. The thermogenic effect relies on the way your body reacts to temperature. When you become too hot, it works to cool you down. When you’re too cold, it works to warm you up. Absolutely everything your body does requires calories for energy. Any time it has to do extra work, like shivering or sweating, it needs a little more. To get this extra energy, it boosts your metabolism to burn stored fat. Therefore, it’s possible to use hot spices manipulate your body’s internal thermostat to help you lose weight.
