Today we are going to present you surprising and fascinating idea for those who suffer from arthritis and joint pain.
Noted for their ability to add kick to anything graced with their presence and fiery taste, hot pepper can also act as pain killers by topical application, besides most of the people think that they just create a burning sensation.
Capsaicin is the substance present in hot peppers responsible for the heat. The hotter peppers have peppers contain larger amounts of capsaicin in their content.
Capsaicin depletes a substance in the body know as Substance P. The pain signals to the brain are actually transmitted by this neurotransmitter (Substance P).
