RELIEF MUSCLE PAIN X1
Capsika is a modern herbal medicine made from Capsaicin which is an extract from Chilli Pepper in Thailand. When Capsika is applied to the skin, its main active ingredient, Capsaicin, stimulates the TRPV1 receptors in the outer skin, sending nerve impulses through the pain pathway, causing secretion of several neutrotransmitters, the major one being substance P. These secreted neurotransmitters and the nerve impulses they trigger are then interpreted by the brain as pain sensation. As the medication is continually applied, 3-4 times a day for 1-2 weeks, the receptors gradually decrease their response to capsaicin and the neurotransmitters mediating the pain pathway are significantly depleted; therefore, nothing is left to trigger the brain to interpret as pain. These stages comprise the pain-relieving mechanism of Capsika.
What is Capsaicin?
Capsaicin is the ingredient found in different types of hot peppers, such as cayenne peppers, that makes the peppers spicy hot. You can eat it in raw or cooked peppers or as a dried powder, which you can add to food or drinks. It also is available as a dietary supplement and in topical creams that you apply to your skin.
What is Capsaicin used for?
When a capsaicin cream or ointment is used on the skin (topical use), capsaicin helps relieve pain. Capsaicin works by first stimulating and then decreasing the intensity of pain signals in the body. Although pain may at first increase, it usually decreases after the first use. Capsaicin stimulates the release of a compound believed to be involved in communicating pain between the nerves in the spinal cord and other parts of the body.
