Health experts said that “capsaicin” is one of the proven weight loss supplements, and it comes as a compound found in chili peppers that give off heat when consumed. It can also be taken as a supplement.
Capsaicin is believed to target and eliminate fats by increasing metabolism – a major cause of weight loss.
In fact, as research shows, your weight is highly dependent on your metabolism, the process by which what you eat and drink is broken down into energy that your body can use in its daily functions.
There is some evidence that “capsaicin” supplementation can stimulate the metabolism, making weight loss and fat burning easier.
According to the research, capsaicin works by increasing oxygen consumption and body temperature, leading to a slight increase in the number of calories burned.
Studies show that taking this substance regularly can promote calorie deficit and promote fat burning.
In addition, a 12-week study in 80 people with slightly increased body mass index (BMI) linked the use of capsaicin supplements at about six milligrams per day to reducing belly fat.
It has also been found that “capsaicin” has an appetite-reducing effect, which can help you reduce the amount of calories you eat during the day.
It is important to note that the benefits of consuming “capsaicin” will be minimal unless you stick to a healthy diet and exercise.
The NHS revealed that there is no single rule that applies to everyone, but to lose weight at a safe and sustainable pace of 0.5 to one kilogram per week, most people are advised to reduce their energy intake by 600 calories per day to decrease.
For most men this means consuming no more than 1900 calories per day, and for most women no more than 1400 calories per day.
“The best way to do this is to swap unhealthy, high-energy food options – such as fast food, processed foods and drinks, for healthier options,” says the NHS.
In general, a healthy diet should include:
Lots of fruits and vegetables.
Lots of potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and other starchy foods (preferably whole grain varieties).
Some dairy products.
• Certain sources of meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy proteins.
• Only small amounts of foods and drinks that are high in fat and sugar.
The other important ingredient for achieving a healthy weight is regular exercise.
Senior medical officials recommend that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per week.
