According to Jillian Kubala, MS, RD via Medical news today, it is true that chili peppers contain capsaicin, which is the compound that gives a pepper its kick. Capsaicin Can helps to warm up the metabolism, says Kubala, but not in the way you might have imagined. “…[T]he capsaicin in chili peppers can increase metabolism when taken in concentrated supplements, “explains Kubala.” But the amount of this compound in a typical dish that contains chili peppers is unlikely to [affect] metabolism.”

In fact, researchers in one 2017 study cited a previous project which concluded that a 135 milligram capsaicin supplement led to a “significant increase in dormant energy consumption” when taken over a three-month period. With cayenne pepper as a common active ingredient in capsaicin supplements (often found in grocery stores), research has also suggested that turbo amounts of capsaicin may help fight cancer, inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis and even dementia. Science says you only need the seriously concentrated dose to make it worthwhile.

Hi, props to find ways to keep your metabolism active, even when you are not. But the next time you order an extra spicy meal, remember that of all the things that can burn after you take a bite, lots of calories may not be on the list.
