Health Benefits — Fight Weight
Sure, you try and eat food that tastes good, but is it possible to eat food to suppress your appetite? There’s no doubt that some food fills you up, potentially preventing you from wanting to gorge yourself with more food in the immediate future. But what about actually suppressing your appetite?
You’ve probably heard a few health benefits already when it comes to eating red peppers, but now it turns out there’s even more to celebrate. Not only can chili peppers help with a host of health-related issues, but they can also help specifically target gut health.
Capsaicin, the stuff that gives chili peppers their kick, may cause weight loss and fight fat buildup by triggering certain beneficial protein changes in the body, according to a new study on the topic. The report, which could lead to new treatments for obesity, appears in ACS’ monthly Journal of Proteome Research.
