Peppers, particularly bell pepper and green peppers, have large amounts of vitamin C. This particular vitamin is known as a potent fat releaser.
Animal studies and clinical trials have found that people with low levels of vitamin C can hold on to fat more readily. This signifies that munching on foods rich in vitamin C can boost your metabolism and immunity.
Plus, vitamin C is essential for your body to absorb iron, so cooking beef or spinach with peppers can make for a powerful combination.
A study published in the journal found chili peppers trigger a specific nerve in your stomach that suppresses the production of ghrelin and creates the sensation of fullness. Such signals tell your brain it had enough food and thus help avoid overeating – amazing when you are trying to lose weight!
