Chili peppers do more than add heat to your food. Compounds in cayenne pepper have been found to reduce inflammation, help control hunger and boost metabolic rate.
Their powerful antioxidants may reduce inflammation and help protect your cells from damage. In addition, research suggests that one antioxidant in chili peppers called capsaicin may help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It does this by promoting fullness and preventing overeating. What’s more, this compound may also help you burn more calories and lose body fat.
In a study of 19 healthy adults, when calorie intake was restricted by 20%, capsaicin was found to counteract the slowdown in metabolic rate that typically occurs with decreased calorie intake. One large review of 20 studies concluded that taking capsaicin helps reduce appetite and can increase the number of calories you burn by about 50 calories per day.
Consider eating chili peppers or using powdered cayenne pepper to spice up your meals several times a week.

I saw Doc when I was a senior at central college. He really took great care of me and the patients received great treatments. I just graduated chiropractic school 6 months ago and want to thank Doc for the motivation to pursue chiropractic school.
