Recent research has shown that sweet red peppers can activate thermogenesis and increase your metabolic rate. Red bell peppers do not contain capsaicin, like hot peppers, but they do have a mild thermogenic action that increases your metabolism without increasing your heart rate and blood pressure. Plus, they are one of the highest veggies in lycopene, which has been successfully tested in the prevention of many cancers including prostate and lung.
