If you’re a spicy food lover, rejoice! January 16th is International Hot and Spicy Food Day, so you have a perfect excuse to learn some new spicy recipes. If you’re not into spicy foods, maybe you should be. Spices don’t just make life more interesting; they also offer many health benefits.
The heat in spicy food comes from capsaicin. High in antioxidants, capsaicin protects cells from free radicals, which have been linked to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other illnesses. Eating spicy foods can also help people burn more calories when they’re resting, which is beneficial if you’re trying to lose weight. What’s more, there’s evidence that foods with capsaicin cause the brain to release endorphins, boosting your mood and acting as a natural painkiller. In the long term, higher levels of endorphins mean reduction in stress levels and a lower risk of depression and anxiety.
