Hot pepper

Hot peppers, or chilli peppers, can be found in a variety of colours, shapes, and levels of spiciness. In fact, the Scoville scale, created by the American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville, is used to measure the spiciness of peppers.

Due to Capsaicin, the pungent alkaloid of red peppers, there are many benefits linked to this vegetable, primarily weight loss. Some studies indicate that it can suppress your appetite and stimulate energy expenditure, thus increasing thermogenesis and fat oxidation.

They’re also rich in vitamin A and C, which strengthen the blood vessel walls and have a certain analgesic effect. Some studies have also found that capsaicin can successfully stop lung cancer metastasis. Therefore, it has anti-cancer properties. What are you waiting for to add hot peppers to your diet?
