|Product Specification Sheet|
Primary active component of the heat and pain-eliciting lipid-soluble fraction of Capsicum pepper. Acts as an agonist at the vanilloid receptor (VR1; TRPV1) receptor, a ligand-gated non-selective cation channel. Capsaicin elicits a sensation of burning pain by activation of TRPV1 on small, non-myelinated polymodal C-type nociceptive nerve fibers. It has been shown to have antinociceptive, anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, neuroprotective and anticancer effects.
