    Hey sean. This plant is apparently 10,000 times hotter than the worlds hottest pepper. Could be worth checking out considering what you do... futurism.com/pain-relief-resiniferatoxin-rtx/?fbclid=IwAR3E1ladwCjYIZL7Ci9g1JbH7BlP14cM5VzxjfBNQIRPtq0UhqeLDYzCChc

    4:58 alcohol lowers the threshold at which the capsaicin triggers heat molecules (this is what gives for example whiskey its burning sensation) so basically you make your body even more susceptible for this heat sensation

  • LeonardChurch33
    LeonardChurch33 2 months ago

    It actually makes sense that the alcohol would make it worse. While it is a solvent capable of dissolving and washing away some of the capsaicin, it also lowers the temperature threshold of your heat/abrasion nerve cells; the same ones currently being assaulted by the capsaicin. So not only is your mouth on fire, it's now even more sensitive to that fire.

    What alcohol does is lower the point at which your heat receptors activate so that they active at a temperature lower than your own body heat, which is why alcohol burns. So basically you just turned everything up

    why would you gargle? it makes no sense and is outright contra the idea. so unpleasant to watch and so dumb. and i am disappointed that michael did it after sean started it. pro tip: just drink 25ml maaloxan liquid, before you eat or drink spicy. i did this secretly to win bar records with spicy shots. you feel no heat in your mouth and only 10% in your stomach. keep maaloxan in your mouth and move it a little till you feel a layer of it around your tongue, then drink it. then you have a time window for about 5-10 minutes to go crazy with spicy stuff.
