Does anyone know if there are any scientifically proven (good) properties of Capsaicin in hot peppers?
Does it burn any additional calories if you eat hot peppers?

Oxford Polytechnic Institute proved that cayenne pepper stimulates the metabolism approximately 20%. It not only stimulates the body’s metabolic rate, but also cleans fat out of the arteries.
