Yes it is.
Especially when it gets colder outside, spicy food is always a good choice. The ingredient capsaicin, which is contained in the chili, provides the intense pungency and heats us up properly. As a result, the thermogenesis, known as the heat generator of our body, is stimulated. This means that your body uses energy and burns calories.
Capsaicin is found in cayenne pepper, spicy pepper, chilli pepper, Tabasco and pepperoni. The world's hottest chilli sauce measured up to 9 million sharpness units. In comparison: A conventional Tabasco sauce has about 2500 units.
