Why and how does Indian food [those awesome spices] make one feel SO good after eating it?

It really makes one feel as if your high.
Not exactly high but the after effects of herbs and spice combinations personally give me an elated balanced feeling after eating the dishes.
I cannot explain it.
But there must be something medicinal that effects moods on some level.
I’ve eaten every nationality of food so far [almost most],but no other makes me feel like this, except Indian food.

    The spices which are being used in Indian food does have a medicinal effect. I am a professional Indian chef. so, I think i knew few things for fact.
    For Ex : Turmeric is an Antiseptic, fennel seeds & carom seeds (ajwain) helps in digestion.
    There are many other ingredients which acts as an aphrodisiac. Asafoetida (hing) & garlic helps to sort out gas troubles . Ginger got a distinct flavour & helps in soothing throat. Pepper another ingredient with a medicinal value. There r few varieties of spinach/ leafy vegetables which helps to soothe stomach ulcer,etc…

    Basically speaking, survey shows that the utilisation of taste buds is done maximum by eating Indian food which has a lot of spices.

    So your palate is satisfied. This now has a direct relation to your brain. You feel good when your palate is much more satisfied than any other food.

    I usually do make Indian food and make a point to order from http://spicesonline.info

    A very good indian store.
