Spicy food is a mystery. It gives us pain and pleasure, all at the same time. However, spicy food can have health benefits that our bodies crave. If you are an agnostic or just do not like the heat, here are few compelling reasons to reconsider adding some spice to your day.
1. Weight Loss: Studies show that the most compound in chilies, called capsaicin, incorporates a thermogenic effect, and will cause the body to burn bonus calories for 20 minutes post-chow-down.
2. Heart Health: Studies show that cultures that eat the spiciest food have a much lower incidence of coronary failure and stroke. Chili peppers can reduce the damaging effects of LDL (bad cholesterol) and capsaicin may fight inflammation, which has been flagged as a risk factor for heart issues.
3. Lower Blood Pressure: Vitamins A and C strengthen the guts muscle walls, and the heat of the pepper increases blood flow throughout your body. All of this equals a stronger circulatory system.
4. Fewer Blow-Your-Top Moments: Spicy foods boost the production of feel-good hormones, like serotonin. So, they will help ease depression and stress, reducing the incidence of losing your temper.
