Benefits of Spicy Thai Food 

A Healthy Heart

Heat is good for your heart! As long as you have a healthy balance of healthy foods.

Chili peppers have something called capsaicinoids, which studies have found lower cholesterol by breaking it down. Chilis can also lower blood pressure.

You’ll be less likely to suffer from any problems with your heart. 

Your Metabolism

Spicy foods are great for weight loss and metabolism. The capsaicinoids that lower cholesterol can also boost metabolism. Plus, ginger serves as an anti-inflammatory.

Pain Relief

Another benefit of ginger is pain relief. It helps with sore muscles and helps you feel better overall. If you have an upset stomach, ginger can also help with that. Spicy foods can also simply calm your nerves when you’re in pain. 

Immune Boosting

Another common ingredient, garlic, is great for boosting your immune system.
