They say no pain, no gain – and that couldn’t be truer than with cayenne.
According to archaeologists, we’ve been using spicy foods for more than 6,000 years, and people who love spicy food are called ‘ pyro-gourmaniacs’.
Spicy foods might make you sweat, but they also provide a number of health benefits such as improving cardiovascular health and battling colds.
For example, did you know that cayenne can help to alleviate the pain from headaches? By creating pain through spice in your mouth, your body’s focus is shifted from the pain in your head. So, if you already like spicy foods, this can help to make you feel better.
Also, some studies have shown that spicy foods can help you to live longe with one study showing an improvement of up to 14%! You don’t need to eat spice to every single meal, but having a few more chillis every now and again can help to improve your health in a number of ways.
So, the next time you’re debating whether to go for mild or spicy, you may want to opt for the latter.
