Spice Up Your Weight Loss Efforts with Aleppo Pepper

aleppo pepper

A top misconception of healthy eating is that it's bland, boring and void of flavor. That couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, many flavor-packing spices and peppers are believed to help aid in digestion and weight loss. And one spice in particular is lauded for multiple healthy benefits.


The Aleppo pepper originates from Northern Syria's Aleppo city and is popular in the Mediterranean region, which includes Greece, Lebanon and Turkey. It boasts a rich red color and an earthy flavor with a mild heat level, which makes it the perfect substitute for hotter cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper if your heat tolerance is a bit lower. Using it in recipes adds a flavorful depth without an overbearing spiciness.


For those looking to shed pounds, healthy dishes enhanced with spices like crushed Aleppo pepper can help boost your weight loss efforts. Aleppo peppers are packed with fiber, which helps make you feel fuller faster. They also have alkaloids which stimulate digestion. And, they're known to temporarily boost metabolism.


Aleppo pepper offers other health benefits, too:


  • High in Vitamins A and C, folic acid, potassium and manganese

  • Boosts immunity

  • Powerful antioxidant that helps to keep your heart and body tissues healthy and reduces heart attack risk

  • Acts as an expectorant for asthmatic or cough conditions, relieves nasal congestion and dilates airways in lungs

  • Reduces inflammation related to asthma, arthritis and nerve disorders

  • Clinically proven to help control body sugar in diabetics

  • Stimulates release of pain killing and stress soothing endorphins

  • Helps to detoxify your body and may help prevent cancers

My relationship with Metabolic Research center began Feb 2010 when I weighed 182 lbs and had high blood pressure. I lost a total of 69 lbs and 72 inches. It has been 6 years and I continue to maintain my weight. I owe my continued success to MRC and all the great classes, especially yoga and the continued support that I receive from the staff. I have learned that food is nothing but fuel for the body and just as with your car you need to give it the right fuel in order for it to run proper. Follow the program and it is possible to loose the weight and maintain it. Nothing tastes as great as healthy feels!
