In a new study researchers found that eating spicy foods one to two days per week improved their life span.
A seven year study based on 500,000 participants proved that those who ate spicy foods one to two days per week lowered their risk of death by 10%.
Moreover, the study determined that those who ate spicy foods three or more days each week lowered their risk of death by 14% over those who ate spicy food less than one time per week.
Reduce Your Exposure…
Interestingly, participants who ate spicy foods also tended to have a reduced risk of certain disease such as ischemic heart disease & cancer.
Also, the benefits seemed to be slightly greater for women than men & those who ate fresh chili as apposed to dry had more improvements.
While the study – so far- has only identified this correlation, it is still unclear as to how exactly spicy foods may help to improve longevity.
