The jalapeño pepper that’s featured in this recipe has been known to be a great stimulant. Along with other chili peppers, they stimulate our blood circulation and raise our body temperature. But, here’s an interesting fact. When we eat chilis or any spicy-peppery food, we tend to eat more. It’s because they also stimulate our appetite by increasing the awareness of our senses, thereby enhancing our urge to eat more.
While you might think that it can lead to weight gain, it’s actually the opposite. Consuming capsaicin, the compound found in chili peppers, particularly from Capsicum Annuum, increases the feeling of satiety and fullness, thereby allowing us to have fewer cravings later on. Thus, incorporating them into our diet can suppress our appetite tremendously, eventually leading to a decrease in caloric intake and an increase in weight loss.
Ginger is yet another vital ingredient in this mix, allowing you to improve your overall digestive process and help you reduce bloating.
