Spice Up Your Man

Chillies have long been regarded as having metabolism stimulating properties, but according to French scientists, men who love spicy food have higher levels of testosterone, the hormone responsible for driving men to seek thrills and new sensations. The study, carried out by scientists at the highly respected University of Grenoble based their report, aptly named ‘Some Like It Hot’ following research on a group of 114 men. After being offered chilli sauce, the men who consumed the most, displayed elevated levels of the hormone linking the taste risk factor of hot foods to wider personality traits, such as being more adventurous, enterprising and sexually active.
