capsicum-reduces-chronic-painCapsicum is a natural ingredient found in peppers and has been used to treat pain for centuries. It contains a compound known as capsaicin. These are perfect for treating various types of inflammatory pain in numerous areas of the body. Although research is still discovering how capsaicin work, we know that they are responsible for blocking pain messages to the spinal cord and increasing the inflammatory process (so that you feel better, faster). Capsicum also contains high amounts of vitamin C, which is known to play a major role in dissolving blood clots. This is another area in which capsicum helps increase blood circulation and reduce inflammation. It also helps to clear blocked passages in the blood vessels and keeps the blood flowing free and clear.
