In one of the new studies researchers have found eating hot chilli peppers could help to live longer.

Details of the study are published in the PLoS ONE journal. It writes the researchers at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont found 13 percent lower risk of death in the group who consumed hot chilli peppers.

Data of more than 16,000 Americans were analyzed using the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES). The average age of participants was 18.9 years.

The researchers said people who eat hot red chilli peppers tend to be younger and had lower HDL-cholesterol compared to those who didn’t consumed red chilli peppers.

It is learned spices have anti-obesity, antioxidant, anti-inflammation and anti-cancer properties.

The bioactive ingredient of spieces, capsaicin, possesses antimicrobial properties that affect indirectly the host by altering the gut microbiota.

One earlier research said blocking the ability to feel pain in the body to live longer and chilli peppers does the same due to high levels of capsaicin.

medical student and study researcher Mustafa Chopan said then in an article published in the Science Daily, “because our study adds to the generalizability of previous findings, chili pepper — or even spicy food — consumption may become a dietary recommendation and/or fuel further research in the form of clinical trials.”

However, experts still suggest the new finding does not mean one should rush off to the grocery store.
