Hopefully you crave something spicy, as research revealed that pepper can reduce fat.

Do you like pepper? Hopefully you crave something spicy, because recent research has found that the spice has the ability to block the formation of new fat cells.

The US Agricultural and Food Chemistry newspaper reported that experiments showed that fat cells exposed 72 hours to piperine, a compound in pepper, stopped forming.

Piperine also reduced the formation of new fat cells, which is good for marking those abs.

The not so good side? This was hardly observed in the laboratory, and it remains to be determined with certainty that it works in the human body, so do not fill yourself with pepper just yet.

However, researchers have noted that in previous studies the effect has been the same, and in animals reduction of triglycerides in the liver and glucose in the blood have been found.

To get the most benefits from piperine, buy black peppercorns and grind them yourself in a pepper mill, this variety of pepper contains the most beneficial substance.
