5 Health Benefits of Spicy Foods

From the common cold to Alzheimer's disease, the health benefits of spicy foods are only now beginning to come to light - and it almost seems like an unending list.

With each new study, another benefit is being uncovered. Although some have yet to be fully proven, this list of the top five have been proven time and again and are among the most important.


1. Weight Loss 


One of the biggest health benefits of spicy food is the boost it gives the body's metabolism.

Higher metabolism helps the body burn fat and calories faster which definitely speeds up the process of losing weight.

It's also been suggested people who eat spicy food, eat smaller portions in one sitting which helps weight loss as well.


2. Improved Sleep Patterns 


Not one of the more talked about benefits is the improvement of your sleeping pattern.

Although not well documented as of yet, researchers have discovered a link between eating spicy things and getting healthier, more restful sleep.

People who consumed spicy dishes on a regular basis seem to have an easier time falling asleep at night, waking up in the morning and have more energy throughout the day.


3. Better Circulation


Spicy food gets your heart pumping and which gets the blood flowing through your veins faster. This can be a great benefit to anyone who suffers from poor circulation, especially in the hands and feet.


4. Digestion


Because spicy things stimulates stomach secretions, blood flow to the stomach increases and thereby increases the mucus lining. That increased mucus lining actually helps fight stomach ulcers.


5. Preventing Cancer 


Capsaicin, the key agent in making peppers hot, has been shown to not only slow the growth of cancer cells, but in some cases it has actually killed those cells.

This development clearly shows the health benefits of this type of food extend far beyond what anyone imagined.
