Frequent Spicy Food May Help You Live Longer

August 06, 2015 2 min read

Yes, it’s true – eating frequent spicy meals may lengthen your life span! In china, there was a 7 year study conducted with adults who consume spicy foods, including chili peppers, and the result was reduction of death by 14%. During the study in China, researchers examined nearly 500,000 individuals over a 7 year period and made a record of who ate spicy foods 1-2 days per week. Those who did eat the spicy food had a reduced risk when it came to risk of death by 10%. That was in comparison to individuals who ate spicy meals less than once a week. The risk of death reduced even more for individuals who consumed spicy food 3-7 days per week, 14% reduction to be exact. The reason behind spicy food assisting in such a way is that there are several benefits of ingredients. Chili is a bioactive compound capsaicin, and is an antioxidant, has anti-cancer properties, and is anti-inflammatory. There is also anti-obesity and gut microbiota benefits with chili. The individuals in the study were questioned on which types of spicy food they were consuming, as well as how often. Chili pepper was one of the most common. However, there were also other spices that increased the benefits. Analysis showed that individuals who consumed fresh, rather than dry chili had a reduced risk of diabetes, ischaemic heart disease, and death from cancer. This is great news for people who love a little extra “kick” when it comes to their food. Not only can spicy food contribute to higher metabolism, but now we are finding out it can lengthen our life longevity. There still needs to be more research and experts do warn this is not a way of dieting, just yet. Do you incorporate spice into your meals? Source: The Guardian Do you follow us on Instagram?
