Why does eating spicy food make your nose runny?
This happens to me all the time. Whenever I eat spicy food, my nose gets all runny, and it's really annoying.
My nose runs a bit no matter what I eat, so it's some sort of stimulation of chewing. But spices and radiant heat stimulate the mouth and sinuses and probably cause the phenomenon.
Spices and foods like onion, peppers, and garlic are very healthy for humans, because they can fight viruses by filling vulnerable areas of the body's cells when viruses attach with their oils. Older people sometimes have trouble digesting them,. though.
From my experience in Asia I would say if your nose is runny when eating any food, especially spicy food, it most likely has MSG in the food ingredients.
A runny nose is one of the tip off signs that MSG Mono-sodium Glutamate is in your food.
So to answer your question; YES my nose gets runny when I eat spicy food that has MSG in the recipe or is part of the production of an item in the recipe.
Eating spicy foods gets your creative juices flowing. All of the germs and viruses are being forced out to make way for positive thoughts and occurrences!
