Capsaicin Promotes Metabolic Health

Capsaicin is a chemical found in red chili pepper used to make paprika, which is an ingredient in chili and Mexican food. It reduces appetite and calorie intake and helps promote weight loss by releasing serotonin, a hunger-suppressing hormone. A review of literature by Mark McCarty from Catalytic Longevity in California, and colleagues, concluded that capsaicin has favorable effects on atherosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, fatty liver disease, heart enlargement, high blood pressure and the risk of stroke. It also has favorable effects on the endothelium— the inner lining of the blood vessels. Capsaicin is a heart-healthy supplement that promotes metabolic health. (Open Heart, 2: E000262, 2015)
