If you have leaky gut and eat anything spicy, you will feel very bad. If you don’t have leaky gut and eat something spicy, you likely will not notice any difference. Its more of a leaky gut thing more than anything else. I couldn’t tolerate paprika on the diet but now I can. I could tell it was setting me back and making my leaky gut worse. Its all about whether or not it works for you. Some spices are inflammatory.
Another benefit to spicy foods though is that it causes sweating which aids in detox (via the skin).
If you were to eat certain spicy foods daily in large amounts, this could set you back like eating regular vinegar daily, alcohol, etc. It all depends which spices you use and your experience.
I apologize for any confusion I may have caused.
