Eating more peppers may increase the risk of dementia - Study

Melbournes can be harmful if they are fond of adding more chillies to their food. According to a 15-year-long study, more than 50 grams of chillies per day can increase the risk of dementia. The study was conducted on 4,582 Chinese nationals over 55 years of age. The study revealed that these people who ate more than 50 grams of chillies saw a sharp decline in cognitive functioning. According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrients, there was a sharp decline in the memory of thinner people who consumed more chillies.

The study, led by Jumin Shi from Qatar University, revealed that the risk of declining memory and poor cognitive function was almost double the ability of people who eat more than 50 grams of chillies per day. "Our previous studies found that pepper intake was found to be beneficial for body weight and bald pressure," Zuma said. However, in this study we found its adverse effects on adults over the age of 55.

More Information on this study

The study included both green and dry peppers, but not capsicum or pepper, the researchers said. Ming Li, a researcher at South Australia University, said, "Mirch is the most commonly used spice in the world and is more popular in Asia than in European countries. He said that one in three adults in some regions of China like Sichuan and Hunan eat spicy food every day. The capsacin, present in the pepper, accelerates the metabolism of the body.
Capsacin causes more burns in the body calories, which does not increase the body's weight. The antioxidants present in it help in reducing cholesterol. However, this is the first study to examine pepper intake and cognitive function.
The study found that the income of high pepper-eaters as well as the Body Mass Index (BMI) were both low and were physically more active than others. Researchers said that people with normal weight may be more susceptible to pepper intake than people with high weight, so they have an impact on memory and weight.
