Our expert says:
Cayenne pepper does contain plant compounds that can stimulate the body's metabolism, as well as plenty of vit C. However, the doses that can feasibly be ingested are probably too low to promote pronounced weightloss. Excessive intake of cayenne pepper can irritate the lining of the stomach, so you need to be careful not to overdo your intake, to prevent gastritis. I would think that 2 cups a day is already on the high side. The use of cayenne pepper on its own without reducing your energy intake and increasing your energy output, will probably not assist much with weightloss.
