Capsaicin (I hope I spelled it correctly); one of the active components of chili is present in very small amounts in the spicy things we eat.
Our body actually exhibits "irritability" upon its consumption, and hence the heat and spiciness created, is due to a reaction between a neurons and capsaicin!
Large quantities of capsaicin may lead to death, though. It is actually used for controlling stampedes and riots for that matter! XD

While large quanitites of capsacin may lead to death, small quantities stimulate production of endorphins that make you feel good! Smile
Or you could just exercise. Simple. Y'know, all that Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor and friends, haha.
