Hot food, chrysanthemum crematorium! Why does PP feel hot but not sweet?

In terms of taste, “spicy” has always been the favorite taste of Chinese people. According to a survey report published three times, in the list of Chinese people’s favorite taste, “spicy” always occupies the top position, while “sweet” is the next, followed by salty and sour, and bitter is the last. < / P > < p > in our life, we all have such experiences. Sometimes we feel that the food is not suitable for our appetite. If we take a spoonful of Ganma brand chili sauce, our appetite will be greatly increased immediately. Two bowls of rice will be out of the question, and even we will have endless aftertaste after eating. < / P > < p > it’s like eating spicy food is addictive, but why? After eating spicy food, we seem to have a pleasant and indescribable feeling, which we can describe as “capsaicin pleasure”. < / P > < p > if we eat a large amount of capsaicin rich food in a short period of time, the pungent feeling contained in capsaicin will stimulate the tongue and nerve endings in the mouth. As a reflex, our body has the phenomenon of rapid heartbeat, increased saliva secretion, and accelerated sweat secretion and gastrointestinal peristalsis. < / P > < p > at the same time, this kind of slightly excitatory stimulation will also release endorphins from the brain. Endorphins will promote the secretion of dopamine, a familiar substance in the brain. Dopamine’s function is similar to adrenaline, which can fully affect our emotions, make people excited in a short time, and produce a happy sense of satisfaction. < / P > < p > but at this time, if we continue to eat and take in more “spicy”, the brain will think that there is pain coming and release more endorphins. This kind of release is cyclical and people can’t stop. < / P > < p > when we take capsaicin, capsaicin will stimulate human cells, forming a weak stimulation similar to burning in our brain. And whether it is the tongue or other organs of the body, as long as the nerve can feel the place can feel this kind of stimulation. < / P > < p > many people don’t eat spicy food when they are young, because it is a kind of self-protection function of the human body, and spicy food is rejected as harmful substances. In addition, the pain of spicy food varies from person to person, which reasonably explains why some people can eat spicy food better. < / P > < p > there are many different receptors in the human body. Taste receptors are only located on the taste buds, while spicy pain receptors are almost all over the body. Therefore, when you eat spicy food, you will have a burning feeling from your mouth to your stomach. When this feeling goes all the way from your mouth to your anus, your PP will have an “extraordinary” feeling. < / P > < p > after eating spicy food, we usually feel sour and refreshing, with tears and nose water flowing directly. When we take out paper towel, we don’t know whether to wipe our mouth or nose first. Some people still want to find a glass of ice water or ice drink to relieve the hot, but is it really useful? < / P > < p > generally, water can only relieve the short-term stimulation of pungency to our tongue tip nerve, so we may have a short-term soothing effect after drinking, but after drinking a few mouthfuls, we may find that we may have a heavier burning feeling, and feel “the more we drink, the more spicy”. This is because capsaicin is insoluble in water, and water does not neutralize capsaicin. Fluid water only allows capsaicin to spread to a wider range of receptors. < / P > < p > what can I drink to quickly relieve the hot? In fact, pure milk contains a lot of casein, which is a good emulsifier. It can not only repair the epithelial cells of digestive tract burned by spicy, but also relieve the stimulation of sensory nerve. < / P > < p > pepper has a certain health care effect, but Dr. x also wants to remind everyone who loves spicy food that too much is better than too much, too much capsaicin will cause stomach pain, abdominal pain, diarrhea and other symptoms.
