Cayenne contains capsaicin, this gives the spice the ‘heat’ and it has pain relieving & anti inflammatory properties. Cayenne has been researched to help not only with pain & inflammation, but it also can improve your cardiovascular health, promote weight loss, and boost the immune system. The more you rub it into your skin, the more it heats up.
Cayenne works by blocking the substance P which is a neurotransmitter that relays messages through your nervous system and skin in what we call pain. Therefore it helps to reduce pain. There is evidence that cayenne balm helps to relieve chronic muscle and joint pain & injury. Because of its anti inflammatory effects it causes the dilation of local blood vessels, so it helps to heal. It helps to relieve repetitive stress injuries, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, gout, menstrual cramps, psoriasis and even bruises.
Capcaisin has been well researched in treating neuropathic pain caused by damage to the nerves, with symptoms such as fibromyalgia, sciatica, headaches & shingles, & diabetic neuropathy.
When you apply cayenne balm you may feel a burning or heat sensation. In more chronic pain areas you may like to use a patch on the skin applied with cayenne balm for better results over a week or 2 period.
Please remember to wash your hands thoroughly or you can use gloves when applying.
Do not let cayenne touch your mucus membranes or eyes as it will burn.
Do not apply to broken skin.
