May Support Weight Loss

Cayenne pepper may be beneficial to individuals who are trying to lose weight. The spicy pepper could help reduce cravings, resulting in a reduced caloric intake.2‘Spicy Foods and Your Health.’ Health Hive, hive.rochesterregional.org/2020/02/spicy-food-health

Another weight-loss characteristic that cayenne may have is its ability to increase metabolism, which could help the body convert nutrients into energy rather than fat. Lastly, ingesting the spicy peppers causes the body's temperature to rise, which could cause it to burn calories more efficiently.
