Hot peppers contain a component called capsaicin. Capsaicin is what gives peppers their hot taste. But capsaicin is also very effective at blocking pain signals to our brain. We have a neurotransmitter called Substance P, that communicates pain signals to our brain. Capsaicin blocks the transmission of pain by Substance P. That’s how a hot pepper salve works.
