Spicy Guts

Pituitary gland spicy                     I see Mexican food in my near future. Did you know that the pituitary gland releases endorphins whenever you eat spicy food? Endorphins are the lovely chemicals that get released in our brains, both in response to pain and love. They have a huge fan base because they dampen pain messages in the brain. These natural painkillers go about doing their delightful deeds whenever you exercise, are excited, and even when you're afraid! So if you're feeling blue, try some habaneros, wasabi, or just plain old hot sauce. Disclaimer: We cannot be held responsible for watering eyes, burned mouths, or public embarrassment.
