Chilli peppers help burn away the fat
Eating chilli peppers can help dieters to lose weight by raising their metabolism and burning away fat, according to scientists
Researchers have found that the heat generated by peppers can actually increase your consumption of calories and “oxidise” layers of fat.
And for those that don’t like the “burn”, they have discovered that an equivalent of the main ingredient “capsaicin” occurs in some non-hot varieties of the fruit
The heat of pepper evolved to put animals off eating them, but humans have come to like them and they have been a staple of many diets around the world for thousands of years.
