Who should not eat spicy

Despite the obvious health benefits of spices and spicy foods, they should be used with caution. Consumption of hot spices should be controlled by those who have diseases of the gastrointestinal tract or increased sensitivity to a burning taste.

Hot spices are a great option for bitterness, which is desirable to end every meal. But daily consumption of excessively spicy food can not only improve the taste buds, but also disrupt their work. Damaged receptors will love the spicy taste so much that they get used to it, and all other food (insipid, less spicy, salty, sweet) will seem tasteless.

Unlimited eating of red (chili) or black pepper causes constant stimulation of gastric secretion and increased acidity, which can lead to the formation of erosions in the stomach.

People with ulcers, gastritis and duodenitis should be excluded from the menu. Especially if the stage of exacerbation sets in, when it is necessary to follow a sparing diet.

By itself, spicy food does not cause inflammation of the stomach, but regular irritation of its walls with spicy foods can lead to a decrease in the protective barrier of the mucous membrane of the organ. Damaged mucosa becomes a target for infections and provokes the development of gastritis.

Spicy and spicy foods stimulate the production of gastric juice and sometimes cause heartburn – throwing the contents of the stomach into the esophagus, especially after heavy meals.

Spicy foods and spices are good for health, but they should not be abused. Pain and discomfort (heaviness, nausea, heartburn) after a spicy meal is a signal from the body that you should be careful with these products. A reasonable amount of spices will not harm a healthy body and the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract.
