And who would have thought that something that tastes so hot can leave you feeling so energized? Interestingly, the chili seeds are actually not the hottest part of the chili, it is the membrane which the seeds are attached to. The chemical compound found in chillies is called capsaicin which makes it hot. Pure capsaicin contains 16,000,000 scovian units which makes it the highest of the heat scale as nothing is hotter than this. Capsaicin gives the hot burning sensation yet the effect is not a chemical burn, but stimulation of the brain to believe that the exposed part is experiencing excessive heat.
