In addition to its usual culinary uses, chilli can also be used to treat a number of medical conditions due to its pronounced antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Furthermore, chilli extracts are rich in the active ingredient capsaicin. Capsaicin is the substance in chilli peppers that is responsible for a warming effect on the skin. When capsaicin is absorbed by the skin, it simulates the nociceptors – a subgroup of sensory neurons that transmit pain sensations. Therefore, topical application of capsaicin can relieve pain when applied to an affected area of the body.
