你適合吃辣嗎?
我們常說五味包括甜、酸、苦、辣、鹹,但其實舌頭只感受到甜、酸、苦、鹹,那麼辣呢?原來辣是痛覺非味覺,辣椒素會產生強烈的刺激性,吃後使人感到灼熱的辛辣感。從中醫角度來看,辣又稱為「辛」,具辛味的食材多具有宣散、行氣、祛散風寒、通血脈及發汗的功效,辛味食物大多屬性偏熱,例如辣椒、薑、蔥、洋蔥、大蒜、胡椒、紫蘇等,都有驅寒補暖的功效,所以身體偏寒人士可以適量食用,亦適合外感或風寒濕邪者食用。要注意氣虛、血虛人士則不宜多吃辛辣食物,以免氣血耗散,令氣血更虛弱。
氣滯、血瘀、濕熱及陰虛體質亦少吃為宜,因為辛辣會加重身體的偏熱症狀,辛辣又會抑制肝臟功能,使經脈不能保持暢通,加劇氣滯、血瘀問題。容易胃痛、胃脹的人亦不宜吃辣,以免加重症狀。
吃辣可以以促進排汗而祛濕,但濕熱體質的話,要祛濕還是多進食健脾祛濕食物例如薏米、淮山、白扁豆、赤小豆等,或者每天飲用一杯米水健脾胃吧。

Is spicy food good for you?
The five basic tastes we often talk about are sweet, sour, bitter, spicy and salty, but our taste buds can only detect sweet, sour, bitter and salty. So what about “spicy”? Technically speaking, spiciness is not a taste but a pain signal stimulated by capsaicin, causing the burning sensation.

From Chinese medicine perspective, the sense of spiciness is also known as “xin”. Most food with the “xin” sensation promotes dispersion and circulation of qi, dispels cold from the body, improves blood circulation and stimulates the sweat glands. Since most of them are hot in nature, for instance, chili, ginger, scallion, onion, garlic, pepper and Chinese basil, they can dispel cold to keep the body warm when consumed in an appropriate quantity, especially by individuals with cooler bodies and those suffering from externally contracted illness and wind-cold dampness.

On the other hand, individuals with qi deficiency and the blood asthenia condition should limit the intake of spicy food, to avoid further weakening of qi and blood. The same rule applies to individuals with the qi stagnation, blood stasis, damp-heat and yin deficiency body conditions, because the spiciness in food would inhibit the liver function, disrupting the meridian system, hence aggravating the existing problems of the body. Individuals prone to stomach ache and bloating should avoid spicy food as well.

While eating spicy food can help stimulate the sweat glands, and in turn get rid of dampness in the body, individuals with the damp-heat condition are encouraged to consume more food like coix seed, Chinese yam, hyacinth bean, rice bean, or drink rice water instead, as these will further improve the health of the stomach and the spleen.
