Did you know?

We’ve mentioned before the many health benefits associated with spicy chili peppers, but it might surprise you to learn that spicy foods are good for your brain, too. Really! People who frequently eat spicy foods may have a decreased chance at developing degenerative brain and nervous system conditions. What’s more, hot foods may also help relieve pain from migraines, and could play a role in fighting depression. It’s not such a large leap; capsaicin, the compound in peppers that gives them their heat, is also used as a topical treatment for pain management. Just be sure to work up to the really hot stuff!
