Compound in red hot peppers tells the body it's full, forestalling over-eating. It's long been imagined that chillies can help us shed pounds.

Presently, new research discovered the searing nourishment can help us feel full, preventing us from gorging and heaping on the pounds.

The stomach extends when it is full, initiating nerves to tell the body it has had enough nourishment. However a high fat eating routine hinders critical receptors in the stomach that flag completion, Australian scientists found.

It has already been found that capsaicin – the compound in bean stew which gives it its warmth – has the capacity invigorate a receptor called potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) channel protein. This receptor triggers the procedure portrayed above, where the stomach extends and sign to the body it is full.

A chemical compound found in spicy curries could help reduce the risk of developing bowel cancer, a study has found. Researchers gave capsaicin, which gives chilli peppers their heat, to mice genetically prone to developing multiple tumours in their gastrointestinal tract. The capsaicin triggered a pain receptor in the cells lining their intestines, setting off a reaction that reduced the risk of growing colorectal tumours. Scientists found that the treatment extended the lifespan of the mice by more than 30 per cent.  A high-fat diet can dampen the receptors in the stomach which trigger it to release nerves telling the body it is full, leading to obesity, researchers found
