Chili Pepper News — pain reliver
To survive, mammals need to regulate their body temperature. But in order for this to happen, they have to be able to perceive and sense the temperature around them. Until now, understanding touch and temperature has been a bit of a mystery.
Capsaicin from hot chili peppers is now used in creams to help topically relieve the pain of arthritis. When capsaicin creams touch your skin, they give off a mild burning or warm tingling sensation. For some this means temporary, yet immediate pain relief.
