Cayenne powder (Capsicum frutescens)

Cayenne pepper is far more than just a spice. For the metabolism it is a true miracle cure: Cayenne pepper leads to a temporary increase in body temperature. The component capsaicin really heats up the metabolism and energy consumption increases. It is even thought that capsaicin promotes fat metabolism. Thus, research has shown that capsaicin - once it has reached the small intestine - accelerates the metabolism of the so-called brown adipose tissue. The metabolism of brown adipose tissue indicates the increased energy requirement and is a sign of the recurring degradation of body fat. Researchers at Maastricht University confirmed in another study the idea that capsaicin can help keep fat burning running during and after a diet. It also boosts circulation by improving blood flow, helping to start the day fitter in the morning, helping with weight loss, and having antioxidant potential. The capsaicin substance also has positive effects on the liver and even a gastro-protective effect.
