Capsicum, also known as red pepper or chili pepper, is an herb. The fruit of the capsicum plant is used to make medicine. There have been numerous studies involving the analgesic (pain killing) effect of the capsaicin component of Cayenne pepper. Clinical studies have shown that capsaicin is effective in blocking Substance P, thus, blocking some of the pain associated with fibromyalgia, herpatc pain, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, diabetic foot pain, and toothaches. Capsicum has been used for thousands of years to treat many disorders and has always been known as an effective pain reduction agent.
