It decreases calorie intake, shrinking fat tissue, and lowering fat levels in the blood.

However, how it does so is not yet known.

The study results showed an 8 percent weight loss in capsaicin-treated lab rats.

They also showed changes in levels of at least 20 key proteins found in fat.

The study appears in ACS' monthly Journal of Proteome Research.
