If you’re hitting a weight loss plateau despite your best efforts to workout regular and eat healthy, you might benefit from taking a metabolism-boosting supplement. Supplements are designed to supply your body with key nutrients that it may be missing through the foods you eat.
As you get older your metabolism naturally slows down, making it a bit more challenging to lose weight. That’s when a metabolism targeting supplement can come in handy.
Dr. John Jay, a cardiologist/electrophysiologist at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah, says your metabolism can benefit from taking a capsaicin supplement daily.
"Our metabolism can get a significant boost from capsaicin," says Dr. Jay. Taking a capsaicin supplement can also help your body burn fat and potentially help decrease appetite.
"If you like to eat chili or sweet peppers throughout the day then this could be a great way to help you lose or maintain a healthy weight," Dr. Jay continues.
You can get the same effect from eating chili peppers as capsaicin is one of the key natural ingredients in these notoriously spicy peppers. Dr. Jay says that the metabolism-boosting ingredient can also be found in sweet peppers, too!
