Can Spicy Food Be Good For You? Does Spicy Food Have Any Health Benefits?
eating spicy food on a regular basis can lead to the development of stomach ulcers. So a regular diet of spicy recipes should be avoided.
When suffering from cough and cold.. spicy food can help get over the cold.
So i believe one should not make it a regular diet.
It can be both good and irritating depending on the health of the person. Like red pepper is a stimulant to the heart, but you might feel the burning sensation in the stomach because you have an ulcer. Believe it or not it will stop a hemorraging ulcer in the stomach and save your life from bleeding to death. But most people with an ulcer would not want it in their stomach because it will more than likely hurt at first. It actually is a cuagulant, it stops a person from bleeding to death. It will cauterize a bleeding wound. It is a good herb to have around just in case you need it for something. I read about a woman who's son was playing with a shotgun and he shot his friend accidentally in the stomach and she saved his life by putting red pepper on the wound, otherwise he would not have lived long enough to make it to the hospital. Ginger is another good herb, it is good for the respiratory system. It is also great for when we have an upset stomach and it can be used when we have indigestion and gas. Ginger and red pepper (known as capsicum) used together can help clear a stuffed up nose and help alleviate bronchial congestion. When used with other herbs it actually enhances their effect on the body. It also has the ability to work like a cleaning agent throughout the colon and a few other organs in the body, like the kidneys and skin which is considered to be the third kidney.
Spicy food can be helpful if you take once a while but if you make it habit ,it would be harmful for health..
Eating spicy food raises your metabolism, thus helping weight loss. Eating spicy food does not cause stomach ulcers. If it did, evey Indian, Thai, Mexican, Malaysian and evey other spice loving culture would suffer from ulcers. If you were not brought up eating spicy food or you have a delicate GI tract, then it will bother you.
Besides helping you to lose weight, eating spicy food can help your circulation,helps your heart health, aids in digestion, helps fighting cancer, aid in breathing and helps your mood.
