Hot Peppers for Reducing Appetite

capsacin.  It is also the active compound that makes pepper spray
such an effective weapon.  If you enjoy torturing your tongue you can
try the jalapeno or habenero.  Another case altogether is the Bhut

the same thing.  They promote the use of the capsacin in hot peppers
for reducing appetite, relieving pain, or increasing circulation.  This
compound can help you lose weight, heal wounds through increased

treatment in Asia for centuries.  Different sources give varying
information as to how it works.  Some believe that the capsacin they

cause, the benefits of hot peppers in weight loss are indisputable.  The
type of pepper is not extremely important, but cayenne, or red,
peppers are the most commonly used.  You have to be careful
