Does Eating Spicy Often Affect Your Health?


Does Eating Spicy Often Affect Your Health?

There is proud news for you spicy culinary fans . A study conducted in China and published in the British journal BMJ, found that people who ate spicy food 6 or 7 days a week had a reduced risk of death by about 14% compared to those who ate spicy food less than once a week. And the correlation was even stronger for people who didn't drink alcohol.

According to the study, compared to dried chilies, chili sauce and chili oil, fresh chilies provide the best relief.

The spicy taste of chilies arises because of the presence of a substance called capsaicin which has many health benefits, as reported by researchers, including reducing appetite and obesity to possibly lowering the risk of cancer.

In addition, the content in chilies is also able to kill germs that are detrimental to digestion. Chilies are also able to loosen mucus blockages in the nose and throat, and increase body temperature which causes a person to sweat after consuming them. Not to forget, chilies also contain antioxidant vitamins C and beta-carotene which are good for our bodies.

However, consuming excessive spicy food is also not recommended because it can irritate the stomach and intestines. So, in order to get the benefits of spiciness without making you sick, limit the level of spiciness.
