It turns out that capsaicin, the compound that gives chilli peppers their heat, can also fire up your metabolism.
Adding approx. 1 tablespoon of chilli with your daily foods boosts your sympathetic nervous system (responsible for your fight-or-flight response) with the result being a temporary metabolism spike of about 23 percent.
Stock up on chilli sauces, powders, and flakes to add to salsas, and for topping your foods of choice! Bon appetit! 😀
