According to some studies, Capsaicin has thermogenic effects on the body.

This stimulates fat oxidation and metabolism in the body, which reduces weight and prevents fat accumulation.

But fat-fighting isn’t the only useful effect of capsaicin. In fact, it’s been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and support heart health.
