Efficient management of PCOS symptoms is essential for improved health. Controlling the pounds plays a key role in this process and hot food can help, whether you’re overweight or lean.
Capsaicin is the bioactive compound that makes chili peppers exude heat. It can turn your metabolism up a notch to boost the burning of calories while also enhancing the sensation of feeling full and reducing hunger.
Eating about 1 tablespoon of chopped red or green chili pepper, which is equal to 30 milligrams of capsaicin, resulted in a temporary boost in metabolism of up to 23%, according to a recent report.
It’s best not to overdo things on the hot pepper front, of course. But try sprinkling crushed red pepper flakes onto wholegrain pasta dishes and stews. Fresh chili peppers add a fiery flavor to tomato-rich salsas.
