Adding hot sauce to your meal can help get rid of visceral fat – it’s full of capsaicin.

Visceral fat is fat that is stored deep in the abdomen. A certain amount is needed as it helps to protect and isolate the vital organs. However, excess has been linked to serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.

The main cause of excessive visceral fat is diet.

In particular, eating high-fat foods and exceeding the required number of calories can contribute.

However, there is one ingredient in some foods that can help reduce belly fat.

Capsaicin is a chemical compound found naturally in chili peppers, including jalapeno and cayenne peppers.

It has been shown to promote weight loss as well as other health benefits.

But if you don’t like eating chili peppers, capsaicin can also be found in hot sauce.

Michigan State University’s Center for Ingredient Safety Research says, “Both hot sauces and chili peppers contain capsaicin.

“Researchers have found that capsaicin has many health-related benefits, including reducing neuropathic pain that can be caused by a variety of health conditions and aiding in weight management and weight loss.

“Other early controlled laboratory studies show promising results with capsaicin, which could pave the way for future research and potential medical advances, including inflammation reduction and cancer prevention.”

What do studies say about capsaicin and weight loss?

Various studies have shown that capsaicin consumption can promote weight loss.

One such study, published in Bioscience Reports in 2017, looked at the anti-obesity effects of capsaicin by analyzing existing trials as well as how the compound works in the body.

He concluded: “To sum up, capsaicin plays a critical role in the human body and has many benefits for metabolic health, especially for weight loss in obese individuals.

“More importantly, no adverse effects of capsaicin were observed in most studies. Thus, chili and capsaicin are safe and easy to apply in our daily life.

“Given that chili has been a vital part of culinary cultures around the world and has a long history of use as a condiment, it makes more sense to use it to treat overweight and obesity compared to drugs or other interventions with certain side effects.

“Chili pepper dietary supplements or nutritional supplements at the ideal dosage could be preliminary methods for capsaicin to play its protective role in metabolic health.

“In the face of a widespread pandemic of overweight and obesity, there is an urgent need to develop more strategies to treat obesity.

“Therefore, a better understanding of the role and mechanism of dietary capsaicin intake and metabolic health could be critical for early prevention and treatment of obesity.”

A separate article from the 2014 Appetite magazine found that taking capsaicin before meals reduced calorie intake at mealtimes.

“The results of a meta-analysis suggest that daily consumption of capsaicinoids may contribute to weight management by reducing energy intake,” the report says.

“Later, there may be potential for the use of capsaicinoids as long-term natural weight loss agents.”
