chili is an important vegetable and condiment. In particular, the spicy flavor of pepper is a taste that many people like. It can be said that there are many people in the world who like pepper, and even reach the realm of no spicy, no happy. But is it really good for health to eat pepper often? How can we eat chili correctly? Now follow to understand it!
1 Why is eating pepper addictive? Strictly speaking, spicy is not a sense of taste, but a sense of pain. If you accidentally touch the pepper seed, it will sting after a period of time.
spicy sensation is perceived through capsaicin, which acts on receptor protein in pain fiber and stimulates nerve pathway of pain conduction.
and because the pungency stimulates the pain medium, the brain thinks that there is pain, it will release the analgesic substance & mdash& mdash; Endorphins. With the continuous improvement of the level of endorphin, the human body will have a happy and pleasant feeling, which makes many people & lt; No spicy, no happy & quot; It’s too late.
in addition, the habit of being fond of spicy food is also affected by the regional climate. Yunnan, Guizhou, Sichuan and Chongqing belong to the humid and cold climate. They often eat hot pepper, which can eliminate dampness and resist cold.
some people are addicted to spicy food, while others keep away from it. They think that acne is harmful to their stomach. Is it healthy to eat spicy food?
2, spicy food, acne or skin beauty?
many mushroom cools said: I can’t eat spicy food, as soon as I eat spicy food, I will burst out. But have you found that Sichuan girls eat spicy food every day, but their skin is delicate and smooth! Is acne really pepper’s fault?
first of all, let’s find out why we have acne? When the hair follicle sebaceous glands in the skin over secrete sebum, if not discharged, coupled with bacterial infection, it will form acne. Secondly, so far, there is no clear evidence that spicy food can directly cause acne.
but someone must retort: since eating spicy hot pot does not produce acne, why do I explode acne when I eat spicy hot pot?
in fact, this is not surprising. Every time it’s so hot, do you pick up the drink around you and pour it hard? Take a look at the menu, left a plate of meat, right a plate of animal viscera, but also from time to time to drink a few pot soup & hellip& hellip;
this meal of high fat, high salt and high sugar, you don’t have acne, who has acne?
although eating spicy will not directly lead to the formation of acne, for people with oily skin, eating spicy will stimulate the secretion of oil. If too much oil is not cleaned up in time, pores will be blocked, and acne will also occur.
if your skin itself has slight inflammation, capsaicin will speed up blood circulation, causing the outflow of inflammatory factors to the surface of the skin, leading to more serious inflammation and the formation of acne.
therefore, if you want to avoid acne, the key is to do a good job in daily facial cleaning, and eat more vitamin rich food.
3 Is eating chili hurt stomach or protect stomach?
after eating spicy food, there is always a burning feeling in the stomach. Many people feel that eating spicy food hurts the stomach. But in fact, studies have shown that a small amount of capsaicin can stimulate the secretion of gastric mucus, repair gastric mucosa, and protect the stomach.
not only that, according to the British Medical Journal: compared with people who eat spicy food less than once a week, people who eat spicy food every day or two have a 14% lower death rate! In addition, capsaicin can dilate blood vessels, which has certain benefits to assist in controlling blood pressure and blood lipids; It can also stimulate the body to produce some active enzymes, help the heart beat, and prevent atherosclerosis.
a study shows that capsaicin can enhance exercise endurance, promote energy consumption and fat burning, which is beneficial for overweight people to lose weight.
suggests that pepper can nourish the stomach, but it is not suitable for eating too much pepper in the acute attack stage of some chronic diseases, and it is not suitable for eating in the acute stage of gastric ulcer; If the pepper allergy, can not eat spicy, you can eat onion, ginger, etc., have a certain bactericidal anti-inflammatory effect.
