The Red-Hot Secret to Longer Living

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Let’s face it, we all want to live a long, healthy life

So we exercise, take our supplements and skip risky foods.

But according to some groundbreaking new research, there’s one type of food you shouldn’t skip if you want to add years to your life.

And believe it or not —  the hotter the better.

That’s right — one way to live a longer life is to load up on spicy foods. More specifically, hot red chili peppers.

A recent study by the University of Vermont analyzed 23 years worth of health data from more than 16,000 Americans.

After crunching the numbers, the scientists were blown away with what they found… folks who eat hot red chili peppers regularly reduced their overall chances of dying primarily from heart disease by an outstanding 13 percent.

But the good news doesn’t end there…

Another study from China shows similar results. This time the researchers took a look at the health data of over 20,000 people who died. They found that folks who ate spicy foods, like chili peppers, six or seven times a week decreased their chances of dying prematurely by 14 percent.

While the scientists aren’t exactly clear as to why chili peppers can increase your lifespan, they believe it could be due to their capsaicin content.

Capsaicin is a compound thought to help your body fight obesity and improve heart health on a cellular level. It can also help the body fight bacteria and viruses while encouraging the growth of good gut bacteria.

This means by simply adding a chili pepper to your favorite marinade — or drizzling a little hot sauce on your eggs — you could help you cheat premature death!

Can’t handle the heat?

No problem.

You can add more capsaicin to your diet through supplements. Cayenne pepper is loaded with capsaicin and you can buy it through natural health retailers for about $6 a month.

Live well,
