Here is very good news for all those people who enjoy spicy food. Research proves that regular consumption of spicy food can increase longivity. Basically, consumption of spicy food has been found linked with a reduction in premature death. Research recently published in the BMJ journal says that there seems to be a definite link between consumption of spices, especially fresh chillies, and decreased risk of premature death.

The researchers collected dietary data of 500000 people in China, aged between 30-79. The health of sample and their dietary data was monitored for 7 years. 20000 people died during the duration of the study. The results showed that people who consumed spicy food once a week were less likely to die prematurely than people who didn’t. Further, people who consumed spicy food 3 or more days a week were 14% less likely to die prematurely as compared to people who did not consume spicy food!

This is ascribed to the fact that spicy food changes the gut bacteria composition and lowers inflammation in the body.Capsaicin, found in chilli peppers is known to have anti-obesity, anti-diabetic, anti-cancer and anti-oxidant properties.

So this is another yummy reason for you to include more chilli peppers (fresh and dried) in the family diet!

  1. Thanks for your article. I would also like to say this that the first thing you will need to accomplish is to see if you really need credit improvement. To do that you simply must get your hands on a replica of your credit profile. That should not be difficult, considering that the government necessitates that you are allowed to get one free of charge copy of your credit report each year. You just have to inquire the right people. You can either find out from the website owned by the Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the main credit agencies instantly.
