The bombastic effect of pepper starts on the tongue. When someone bites the pepper, it releases capsaicin, its most important active chemical compound.
The substance stimulates the heat and pain receptors present throughout the tongue.
The brain interprets this burning as if the tongue had been burned. And it causes the opioid receptors of the sympathetic nervous system to produce endorphins - responsible for the feeling of well-being. These receptors are the same ones that respond to some drugs. Capsaicin also changes the body's thermal balance, causing heat waves and sweat.
