strong in people who don’t eat spicy foods on a regular basis which seems to
imply that your body can potentially build up a tolerance to spicy foods as

your health by preventing the risk of developing heart disease according to a

found to greatly reduce the risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease

improve your body’s circulation by causing your blood vessels to dilate and
reduce blood pressure additionally it’s also possible that turmeric might be
beneficial to your hearts health by lowering your body’s levels of LDL
cholesterol otherwise known as bad cholesterol on a more basic level

certainly get behind number three spicy food can relieve pain to anyone who
hates the taste of spicy food this one might sound a little hard to swallow
however the potential for spicy food to relieve certain sources of pain is
actually fairly well documented it’s theorized that foods rich in capsaicin
can potentially target a chemical within the brain known as substance P which
plays a role in the pain your body feels from injuries by targeting this
substance capsaicin is believed to help dull or lessen the pain
these injuries cause other studies have also suggested that capsaicin may also

harmful bacteria known as h pylori because of its supposed effectiveness at
treating pain some doctors may even prescribe over-the-counter creams for
pain relief they use capsaicin as an active ingredient other types of spices

properties and throughout history have been used for medicinal purposes such as
treating everything from headaches for joint pain and arthritis number for
spicy food can prevent cancer in addition to all of the other benefits
we’ve already mentioned so far the capsaicin found in chili peppers and
other types of spicy food may also be effective at fighting off
certain varieties of cancer according to senior health care consultant Gregory a
Plotnik off this is because capsaicin contains many of the same properties as
certain types of drugs used to treat cancer and as a result they affect our
bodies in similar ways a UCLA study has also determined that capsaicin was able
to successfully limit the growth of cancer cells in mice while preventing
any damage to healthy cells data collected from studies by Cancer
Research UK also demonstrated promising results for the spice turmeric which in
early clinical trials was found to help reduce the rate at which cancer cells
grow however despite the body of evidence that seems to support certain
spices being effective anti-cancer agents much of these findings are still
inconclusive due to contradictory sources and as such the actual
effectiveness of capsaicin and other spicy foods still remains up for debate
in the scientific community number five spicy food can help improve
your life according to a study published in 2015 by Harvard and China National
Center for Disease Control and Prevention eating spicy food as part of
your regular diet may actually be able to help you live a longer and healthier
life based on the results of the study it seems that eating spicy food is often
as once per day or even six or seven days a week is enough to reduce the
mortality rates by as much as 14% if that wasn’t enough spicy food might not
only extend your life but also improve the quality of life as well the
consumption of spicy food also boosts your brains production of certain
hormones associated with positive feelings and emotions such as serotonin
as a result spicy food may in fact be able to help lessen the negative
emotions that come as symptoms of certain mental health afflictions such

  2. Actually I'm a chili pepper lover and consumer but only with strong meals of course. I normally bite chili pepper like Cheetos when having a lunch or a good snack with beer or red wine. Something you must know is the classic antidote: fresh and juicy tomato slices, when you feel your mouth is burning, just eat the tomato slices and that's it. Best regards.
