One of the world’s most commonly used spices, chilli, may result in memory loss if you eat too much of it, according to a new study.

Although chilli is thought to be effective in battling obesity and hypertension, a new study involving University of South Australia (UniSA) shows that a spicy diet rich in chillies could be linked to memory decline.

The 15 year-study, published in the journal Nutrients this week, examined the dietary habits and cognitive capacities of almost 5,000 Chinese adults aged between 55 and 71 to determine the impact of long-term chilli consumption on memory. 

After running several cognition tests and evaluating participants' diet, BMI and socioeconomic status, researchers saw that people who ate the most chillies, daily, experienced the biggest drop in memory quality.
