Why Do Some People Crave Spicy Food?

spice.jpg

When it comes to eating spicy food, there are two types of people, those who can’t live without it and those who absolutely hate it. Its really rare for someone to fall in between.

I absolutely love spicy food, I cannot live without “pani puri” at all. So to find the answers to my question, I did some research and was quite surprised when I say the reason, well lets start —

The Basics —

Well, spicy foods originate from one key ingredient, i.e, peppers. There are a lot of varieties  of hot peppers. For some people, spice is not a condiment, its a lifestyle. But what is the reason behind it? Is it because some people have a higher pain threshold in their mouth? Doesn’t the spice hide the flavors of their food? Well, there a little bit of science behind it.

Capsaicin —

Every food has an impact on our body and every food takes in and uses energy differently depending on their individual body chemistry. But besides this, food impacts our minds as well. If you’ve ever has a really good meal, you may feel very good and happy. This is a primal biological response that stems from our most basic instincts. A full belly means survival and our body rewards us for that, especially if the food is high in quality and nutritious. This rush of feel-good energy comes in part from endorphins, which is a chemical produced in the brain that makes you feel great. Endorphins are natural pain and stress relievers, are linked to sensations of love and happiness, and are also the source of that “runner’s high” that many people experience after working out. But what do endorphins have to do with spicy foods?

Well, the answers lies in the molecular compound of peppers. Spicy peppers contain a compound called capsaicin. The higher the capsaicin amount, the hotter the pepper. If you’ve ever felt the heat after eating spicy foods, capsaicin is the reason. It is also the reason because of which our body gets tricked into thinking that we have literally touched something hot. Ironically, Capsaicin is a well know pain reliever and is claimed to reduce the effects of arthritis pain, dermatological conditions, and neuropathic pain and is included in some over the counter pain-reliever creams. Because of the fact that it relieves pain, it can also help the body to release endorphins in order to block pain receptors.  In other words, foods containing capsaicin pretend to be a physical threat to your body in order to fool it into releasing some good feels (That’s a bit confusing, isn’t it?). So, spices are not only not a threat to our body, they are quite good for it.

The Health Benefits

So how exactly is the power of spiciness being used for larger good? For one thing, as it turns out, cancer cells don’t like capsaicin very much. And while research on this is ongoing, consuming foods with a heated capsaicin kick can aid physical health and wellness in a myriad of other ways, including:

  • Alleviating nasal congestion
  • Headache prevention
  • Allergy relief
  • Blood clot prevention
  • Balancing cholesterol
  •  Healthy blood pressure promotion

A Really Good Laptop : ASUS ROG Strix GL504 SCAR 2

Amazon Link US — ROG Strix SCAR II

Amazon Link India — N/A

Strix 2.PNG

So recently ASUS launched its SCAR 2, I absolutely loved the first SCAR and this one is even better!! According to me, this laptop is the best laptop at its price. Here is all the information you need to know about this awesome machine :

Build

Man the build!!! I love its build a lot. This time even the back logo has color changing RGB lighting, I must say, I looks really good. With 2.07 kg in weight, it is fairly good for the power it packs. Its dimensions are 35.5 cm * 23.5 cm and its 16.8 mm thick. It has simple rounded corners which look really clean. It is predominantly plastic but still has a quite premium feel. There is a light strip of light up front which I don’t know why, feel really good. It has 2 zones for customized lighting.

Screen And Speakers

It has a really good screen, it is a 144 hz, 310 nt panel. This panel has a 3 millisecond response time.  The bezels are quite thin and I love it. The only problem is the chin, I don’t really like the webcam angle but for me it doesn’t really matter because I rarely use it but if you use the webcam a lot, I prefer you to buy an external webcam. The speakers are on the side and they sound pretty good.

Battery, Keyboard And Trackpad

It can run for 3 and a half hours with 250 nt. It has a 64 watt battery. I means, that kinda natural for the strix series. The keyboard is nice but I may take you a little time to get used to it. It had 4 lighting zones and I love it!!! The trackpad is also very good.

CPU And GPU

They are really good. It comes with an i7 – 8750H which is a really good processor. It has the GTX 1070 which is a really good Graphics card. They both work nicely and provide a really good FPS.

BenchMark Test

So here are the results of a benchmark test —

Witcher 3 – 61 FPS

DOOM – 141 FPS

Battlefield 1 – 127 FPS

Rainbow Six Seige – 155 FPS

OverWatch – 148 FPS

Fortnite – 142 FPS

Overall Views

I really like this laptop and I recommend this to all those people who really like to game and also want a really good workstation. The main problem is the battery life, so if you are a student, I recommend you to take the charger with you also.


Please hit that star if you liked this post. If you have and doubt related to tech, please let me know about it through the comment section. If this post hits 45 likes, I will make a post on the Hero 2 also, so if you liked this post, please like.

Nothing Can Stop Me…. Poem

Nothing can stop me, not even the rain ,

Because only I know the pain.

Only I can understand;

Because only I can withstand.

I work hard day and night;

All I know is to never lose the fight.

I will never give up;

All I know is to speed up.

I will try my best;

To be the best from the rest.

Nothing can stop me, not even stress;

Because I cannot care less.

I will never lose hope;

Because I want to be dope.

I will keep on trying;

Because I know I will get nothing from crying.

Nothing can stop me, not even the rain;

Because only I know the pain.
