If you’re burning by your hot spicy food…Don’t drink water! Instead of water, try dairy products such as yogurt! They contain an enzyme that breaks the bonds between capsaicin and the pain receptors.
Capsaicin is the active component of chili peppers, which is responsible for the burning sensation of the spicy foods. Interestingly, only mammals, including humans feel the burn by eating spicy foods.
