CAYENNE ORANGE SPICED PEPPERS-BORDER

Cayenne pepper helps to give a kick start to our # metabolism!  How does it work you ask? Spicy peppers, including cayenne peppers, cause the body temperature to rise. When the body temperature rises it needs to be cooled down, burning more calories while doing so. The body does get acclimatized to spice, so more and more may be needed over time to get your body heated up, so pair it with # exercise for the full effect!
