Chili peppers are abundant in capsaicin, a compound that is associated with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Emerging evidence also suggests that it exerts beneficial effects on the gut microbiota. Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Medicine (China) analyzed data collected on 500,000 adults enrolled in the China Kadoone Biobank, finding that People who eat spicy foods 1 or 2 times a week may reduce their risk of death by as much as 10%. Those who consumed spicy food daily were 14% less likely to die. Fresh chilis appeared to exert a stronger effect, as compared to non-fresh chili products. The study authors conclude that: “Our analyses showed significant inverse associations between spicy food consumption and total and certain cause specific mortality (cancer, ischemic heart diseases, and respiratory diseases).”
