Chilli Concerns

An extensive 15-year study of 4,582 Chinese adults aged over 55 has hinted at a link between a spicy diet and dementia.2 The study found evidence of faster cognitive decline in those who consistently ate more than 50 grams of chilli a day. Although capsaicin, the active component in chilli, has been shown to fire up the metabolism and aid fat loss, this was the first study to look at its relationship with cognitive function. However, before you smash up your bottles of sriracha, it’s worth noting 50 grams is the equivalent of an entire red chilli. Every single day. For 15 years. So don’t quote us, but you’re probably safe with your monthly tikka masala.
