Nutrition Nugget! Bite-size, bonus episodes offering tips, tricks, and approachable science. This week, Jenn is releasing the Nutrition Nugget from the Salad With A Side Of Fries March Madness tournament winning episode! Today’s encore Nutrition Nugget is about spicy foods and capsaicin. There are many claims about how spicy foods improve your metabolism and help you eat less. Jenn discusses the different studies and tests that have been done on capsaicin (a form of spice), which may slow the growth of and destroy cancer cells, increase endorphins, help with stress and low mood, and even improve digestion. Overall, the benefits are relatively mild from the studies she has seen, but it’s definitely worth giving a try and looking to see how it works for yourself! Like what you're hearing? Be sure to check out the full-length episodes; new releases every Wednesday.  Have an idea for a nutrition nugget?  Submit it here:
