Boosts Metabolism: Capsicum is an extremely efficient weight loss tool, as it contains very few calories (23 calories per cup), it aids weight loss. Consumption of capsicum increases metabolism by lowering triglycerides, (which are stored fats in blood corpuscles). This helps in burning calories and keeping cholesterol in control. Therefore, weight gain from a high-fat diet is reduced. Capsicum also prevents indigestion by causing the secretion of digestive juices.
