Eating spicy food is good for you. Ever notice when you’ve eaten something spicy, your mouth gets numb, and then your nose and eyes start to run?
Ear, nose, and throat specialist, Dr. Brett Comer says this happens because your body is trying to wash away the spice that caused the issues. A plant compound called capsaicin, causes the burn from peppers and other foods. And studies have shown eating things with capsaicin, have great benefits. It can lower mortality rates, might bolster heart and metabolic function, and might even help prevent cancer.
A 2017 study found capsaicin has an anti-obesity effect, and might counteract the buildup of the type of fat that builds up around your organs and is linked to a bunch of diseases.
I for one, love spicy food. Bring it on!!
