Cayenne pepper contains a compound called capsaicin that acts as a natural pain reliever. It is also good for proper blood circulation.

  • Take cayenne pepper extracts or capsules. For proper dosage, consult your doctor.
  • You can also include cayenne pepper in your cooking.
  • Also, apply a small amount of capsaicin cream (containing 0.025% capsaicin) on the aching areas and leave it on for about 30 minutes. Repeat up to 3 times a day.

Note: Do not apply cayenne pepper or capsaicin cream on broken or inflamed skin.


Additional Tips
