TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – Do you ever feel the burning sensation in your stomach after eating Spicy food? It is common to feel the burning sensation after eating spicy food. Spicy food could stimulate the digestion system and increase the body temperature. This burning sensation is caused by the substance called as capsaicin found in chilies.
When capsaicin comes in contact with the stomach lining, the nerves in that part directly sends the sensation of burning and pain. However, this reaction does not happen to all people. How can we counteract the burning sensation in the stomach after eating spicy food?
