Washington, July 22 (ANI): If you love chili peppers, you are in luck - as new research suggests it has an ingredient that helps fight fat.
The study conducted by Jong Won Yun and colleagues revealed that chilli peppers contain Capsaicin, which triggers certain beneficial protein changes in the body, causing weight loss.
It decreases calorie intake, shrinking fat tissue, and lowering fat levels in the blood.
However, how it does so is not yet known.
The study results showed an 8 percent weight loss in capsaicin-treated lab rats. They also showed changes in levels of at least 20 key proteins found in fat.
The study appears in ACS’ monthly Journal of Proteome Research. (ANI)
