What happens to your brain & body when you eat spicy food. Hot peppers trick your brain into thinking your mouth is on fire. But there's no real heat in a pepper. So, what's going on? It's all about a chemical compound in peppers called capsaicin. Capsaicin binds to pain receptors on our nerves. So, why do so many people enjoy spicy food? In response to the pain, your brain releases endorphins and dopamine which makes you feel euphoria similar to a runners high. if you want that hapy experience but dont normally enjoy spicy foods dont worry. You can increase your tolerance over time.
