Those who monitor their weight know that there is a very effective diet for cabbage soup. But it turns out that anyone who wants to lose weight can also benefit from a diet of tomato soup with chili. Especially now, on the shelves of shops and the market, tomatoes of a new crop have appeared – wholesome, ripe and tasty. In addition to tomatoes, the slimming soup also includes burning pepper, which melts fat cells, increasing the body’s energy consumption for digesting food.
This diet, in addition to helping to lose weight, is very useful for the heart and not only. Capsaicin, an alkaloid that stimulates heat receptors, makes a pepper hot. Currently, pharmacologists are actively studying the properties of capsaicin. It is believed that a small burning sensation trains our body, and to overcome discomfort, the brain produces endorphins – hormones of pleasure.
Capsaicin can prevent the development of cancer cells. Medical statistics indicate that in regions where chili is added to most dishes, cancer is several times less likely than in other geographical areas.
The perfect combination of boiled tomatoes (lycopene) and chili (capsaicin) makes tomato soup incredibly healthy. Lycopene – a pigment that gives tomatoes red color, reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. Capsaicin thins the blood, improves blood circulation, tones the nervous system and increases potency.
