Negative Impact of Eating Spicy Food

Spicy Meatballs
Very often we meet spicy food in our country. Spicy dishes are very popular from young to old, to the spicy level of each different food! but eating too much spicy food will have a negative impact on our bodies.

Did you know that this spicy sensation is the beginning of the taste, not my taste for you! Hehehe, spicy is the sensation of a chemical substance called Capsaicin. Where this active substance is in chili, so it can cause a burning sensation anywhere that can occur with it.

This sensation can be beneficial for the human body, but what happens if consumed in excess? Here are 5 dangers if you eat spicy food too often that you must know.

1. Feeling pain in the stomach

Have you ever eaten spicy food and then felt pain in your stomach for a moment? Yes, spicy food can trigger stomach acid to rise. This is influenced by the irritation of the lining of the stomach due to consuming too much chili! So, for those of you who have a history of ulcer disease, please be careful in consuming chili.

2. Stomach becomes heartburn

It is very unpleasant if there is heartburn in our stomach, the trigger for this heartburn occurs due to the rapid movement of the intestines, making it easier for diarrhea to occur. If it has reached the large intestine, the immediate effects of its irritation can be very pronounced. Furthermore, the body will send a lot of water to the intestines, making it easier for feces to exit the large intestine.

3. Gastritis (Acute Ulcer)

The danger of eating spicy food too much or too often is that it can cause the stomach surface to become fragile, not my vulnerability to you. The brittleness of the surface can make the stomach hurt easily, but not with your rejection of me. It's a joke, EB friends! Good, because eating too much of this type of food can trigger gastritis or acute gastritis due to inflammation of the stomach lining. Symptoms of this disease are nausea, vomiting, flatulence and diarrhea.

4. Acid Reflux

The danger of eating spicy food for some people can trigger acid reflux, which is a condition where there is a backflow of stomach contents into the esophagus. Where this condition causes the esophageal tract to be hot like burning. This acid reflux can trigger Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) syndrome, sore esophagus (esophagitis), and also atypical syndrome that can interfere with daily activities.

5. Difficulty sleeping (Insomnia)

When you eat spicy food, your body sweats instantly. This is caused by an increase in body temperature due to spicy food consumed. There is a study published in The International Journal of Psychology which states that chemical hormones are activated when you eat spicy food and injure your stomach to keep you awake at night.

Those are some of the negative impacts of eating spicy food, it feels good at first but in the end it can cause pain, that's from how often you eat spicy food! Remember, EB friends! always take care of your health.
