- Researchers have used capsaicin, the substance that makes chili peppers spicy, to selectively destroy nerve fibers in the vagus nerve, which transmit information from the gut to the brain. This procedure had a “remarkable” impact on weight loss, although the long-term effects of destroying your vagus nerve are unknown.
- Consuming capsaicin may also have weight loss potential, as it is a thermogenic ingredient that may boost your metabolism and promote fat burning
- Research suggests that consuming thermogenic ingredients may boost your metabolism by up to 5 percent, and increase fat burning by up to 16 percent
Along with capsaicin, other thermogenic substances include turmeric (curcumin), caffeine and different teas such as green, white and oolong tea
