Spicy dishes with chili peppers or other spices are popular with gourmets, and science says that eating them promotes the release of "happy" hormones, endorphins. However, there is a fly in the ointment: after a delicious spicy meal, an unpleasant burning sensation remains in the mouth and esophagus, and it can even hurt the stomach

The online publication SSPDaily wrote about this problem: "When the burning sensation becomes unbearable, we try to put out the 'fire' with water, but as a rule, this does not help. Fortunately, there are more effective remedies for recovery."

Here's what gastroenterologists advise you to do in this case.

Drink milk and kefir

Milk and lactic acid products are good for relieving severe burning caused by too spicy food. This "healing" effect on the taste buds is created by the protein casein. By the way, it also gives milk its characteristic white color.

Drink lemonade

If you don't like milk or are lactose intolerant, get rid of burning and stomach pain with lemonade. You can replace lemonade with orange, tomato, or lime juice.

Put an ice cube in your mouth

Doctors do not advise drinking water in case of an "overdose" of pepper, but put an ice cube in your mouth. Its coldness has a great effect on the burned tongue and palate and quickly relieves discomfort.

Eat a slice of bread

According to doctors, bread absorbs saliva well, which is abundantly secreted after eating spicy or spicy food. And with the removal of this saliva, they say, the burning sensation gradually disappears.

Drink water with honey

This is a simple remedy that saves you from excessive pungency. Take a glass of warm water, stir in 1 teaspoon of honey and drink it. As a result, the sweet drink will create a protective film in your mouth that will reduce the burning sensation.
