This muscle pain reliever by Heather of Mommypotamus relieves the pain of achy muscles, arthritis, menstrual cramps, nerve pain and more. How does it work? Well we have a peptide in our body called Substance P. Among other things, Substance P transmits pain signals from the nerves to the central nervous system.
One of the main ingredients in the body rub is cayenne. Cayenne contains a compound called capsaicin which blocks the activity of Substance P. So cayenne is a perfect ingredient for a pain-relief rub. It also heats the muscles which can contribute to pain relief.
It’s an easy recipe to follow, and there are helpful photographs. Click the How to Make a Cayenne-Infused Muscle Rub link below to see the complete recipe.
