It is known relatively little on the healthful effects of the sharp plates that we can find nowadays, including until in the restaurants of food at home in Madrid. Generally, the sharp foods stimulate the circulation and increase the temperature corporal. If we lived in a warm climate, the increase of the corporal temperature can cause that we feel like fresher by the diminution of the difference between us and the air of around, when we sweated in this way we cooled the body when evaporating the corporal heat. It is thought that the sharp plates also stimulate the appetite by means of the gastric activation of the saliva production and juice, an important nutritional effect for the people of the tropical zones where the oppressive heat acts like a suppresor of the appetite. Like anecdote, the sharp one acts like a stimulating general who produces an exciting effect, espabila and increases the sharpness of the senses. The peppers, especially the sharp ones (chili), produce a sensation of ardor in the skin and mucous membranes, including the interior of the mouth. For little the preparations, a relatively slight sharp pepper can unbearably seem strong and the truly sharp ones, even can cause to blisters in the lips and the palate. In Hong Kong, they serve a plate as gustatory sharp shrimps that is so sharp that papilas induces sleep and these can condition until by three days.
But the people who eat sharp foods all along apparently accustom to their effects and they do not find problem them. In fact, these sharp foods that often eat end up considering itself smooth.

For that reason better to always request food at home already prepared and cooked. If the mouth by excess of chilis burns sharp is recommended to eat an absorbent food like the bread or the rice instead of to take liquids, since they would extend the capsaicina to other parts of the mouth. So if you request food to take Mexican, you do not forget to include in your order some that another absorbent food to avoid misfortunes.
