The Benefits of Capsicum for Natural Pain Relief

 

When I set out to create my pain relief cream, I had a list of ingredients I wanted in my pain cream and a list of what I didn’t. For the past 20 years I have been using, searching, and sampling other peoples pain relief creams and some of them worked, some didn’t. But all of them had something I didn’t like about them (in the ingredients). I have been saying, “one day, I’ll make my pain relief cream” for nearly five years. But when you live in a small town in Wisconsin, when will you plan to meet a manufacture and a formulator and someone who knows how to create a legit product? 

 

But while assisting one of my mentors at a workshop and hearing what I do with Mother Trucker Yoga, the great question came out of their mouth, “have you ever thought about creating a product?” A few months later, after several samples, ingredient combinations, texture trials, container sampling, and label creation- STIFF Mother Trucker Pain Relief Cream was born.

One of our favorite ingredients:

Capsicum or chili peppers are increasing their debut in the pain management department. You’ll find its chemical compound Capsaicin in many pain-relieving creams, gels, lotions, sticks, and sprays. Its topical formulation is an efficient pain management tool.

cap·​si·​cum | \ ˈkap-si-kəm  \

Definition of capsicum (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

1aany of a genus (Capsicum) of tropical American herbs and shrubs of the nightshade family widely cultivated for their many-seeded usually fleshy-walled berries

 called also pepper

2an oleoresin derived from the fruit of some capsicums that contains capsaicin and related compounds and is used medicinally especially as a topical pain reliever

What is Capsaicin?

Capsaicin was first isolated from chili peppers or capsicum in 1878 in crystalline form. Capsicum except bell pepper has its hot and spicy flavor from this little fellow, a remarkable health-promoting substance. It increases gastric secretions and stimulates nerve endings.

The Scoville Scale

However, its intense burning and irritating properties make it intolerable. Since it is a self-administered medicine, prescriptions are not required. Hence, to avoid the side effects from large quantity administration, a tool named Scoville scale was derived by W. Scoville which is used to determine the healthy amount of capsaicin in these medicinal preparations.

Mechanism of Action

Capsaicin works in topical administration, although its exact mechanism has not been elucidated yet.

Capsaicin is a neuropeptide-active agent that renders the pain-sensitive areas insensitive to the pain sensation by depleting and preventing the accumulation of pain impulse mediators (from peripheral to the central nervous system). With this phenomenon, painful sensations fail to travel to the Central nervous system’s pain-sensitive regions, which gives us temporary relief from the painful episode.

 

Precautions

Do not apply Capsaicin cream to the cuts and open wounds.

Wash your hand immediately after applying the cream to avoid unnecessarily touching the burn sensitive areas such as nose, eyes, or mouth, etc.

Always consult your physician for directions before using the cream to get desirable results.

 

Side-Effects

Like all other topical herbs, chemicals, treatments, and oils, there are precautions you wan tot take and things you want to consider when using. These side effects can occur due to excessive use or use in forbidden areas. They include:

  • Burning sensation
  • Itching or Irritation
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain 

These side effects are often short-term and are often associated with improper use (IE- private parts, eyes, mouth). Some notice this with its first use, but they will gradually fade away after its continuous application. In our STIFF Mother Trucker formula, we are using just the right amount of capsicum combined with other soothing and cooling ingredients to give you the perfect combination for your muscles and skin. 

 

Read your labels on ALL your pain relief creams. Read your labels, many focus only on immediate cooling, but nothing to penetrate deep, nothing to do anything beneath the surface. That’s where STIFF Mother Trucker comes in. Let us be your number one solution for pain relief that hits you deeply!

Benefits Of Using A Topical Pain Reliever Cream

No side effects 

Our pain reliever cream is made of natural ingredients with no chemicals and parabens. Many of the other over-the-counter topical pain relievers use junk ingredients, and they don’t work. With STIFF Mother Trucker pain relief cream, you will get natural healing without additives, fillers, or artificial colors. Your body will only heal, and there will be no side effects because our list of ingredients is the most natural you will find out there. 

It includes ingredients such as Peppermint, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Ginger, and much more to relieve you of discomfort and pain naturally you might face from driving day and night. 

Fast comfort 

It provides quick but effective relief from pain, meaning you can get rid of discomfort within just a few minutes. That is how effectively a pain relief cream works. Topical pain medications are absorbed through your skin. The most common varieties are creams or gels that you rub onto the skin over your painful joints. 

Because the ingredients are absorbed through the skin, most topical pain medications are best used on joints close to the skin’s surface, such as the joints in your hands and knees.

The cream also provides relief for a long time, so all you need is to put it once on targeted areas, and you will be suitable for at least a day!

Targets pain areas 

You can use the pain relief cream to apply it on any area of your body that hurts from issues such as:

  • Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Sciatica
  • Sports and Work Injuries
  • Cramps and Spasms

And much more. Whichever area hurts at the time, you can directly apply the pain relief cream, and within a few minutes, you won’t be able to feel the pain at all! 

Works well for chronic pain 

Chronic pain in many areas of our body can be a source of great suffering. It can hinder daily activities, and managing the pain while working can cause the pain to increase even further. 

What is chronic pain? It is a pain that is ongoing and usually lasts longer than six months. This type of pain can continue even after the injury or illness that caused it has healed or gone away. Pain signals remain active in the nervous system for weeks, months, or years.

When you couple the use of a natural pain relief cream with simple yoga stretches and postures the likelihood that you will find relief dramatically increases.

If you have chronic pain, then a topical pain relief cream will work wonders for you. It targets specific areas, so if you have chronic joint or muscle pain, then rubbing the cream on the targeted area will provide relief and comfort so you can go about your daily tasks without any problems. Just make sure you wash your hands after every application.

Final words on a topical pain reliever

Throw away your painkillers and get a pain relief cream that will instantly soothe all your pain. It is a much better buy because you don’t have to worry about taking too much and affecting your driving abilities or daily duties. Plus, the cream will last you a long time, and it is excellent for people suffering chronic pain. The best part is, there is no risk for you to give it a try.
