Organic Cayenne


Cayenne, Capsicum annuum, peppers contain capsaicin which stimulates heat sensors in the skin. Applied topically, capsaicin stimulates nerve cells to release a neurotransmitter that sends pain messages to the nervous system to release a chemical called substance P. When the nerve cell supply of substance P becomes depleted no pain signals can be transmitted to the brain until the nerve endings accumulate more. This minimizes pain while providing a warm feeling to the skin and underlying tissue. Capsaicin helps to temporarily relieve pain from sore muscles, arthritis and nerve pain (neuralgia).
