I've heard that cayenne pepper is good for circulation, so I have been experimenting the past few weeks by sprinkling a little on popcorn (along with Parmesan cheese, paprika, and garlic powder--yum!)
 
It seems that when I do eat it in the evening, my legs seem somewhat better.  Is this just coincidence, or is there really something to this?  Thanks in advance for posting.

I think there is something to that...I slathered that cayenne pepper pain relief cream (Capsacian?) all over my legs and levitated.  Couldn't even wash it off...burned like fire ants for hours.  But many use it for arthritis pain and I guess if you keep using it, it works.  I personally could not get past the first dose.

Cayenne Pepper is good for circulation plus it has potassium in it. I use it in my flower garden to keep pests out plus the potassium is good for the plants.

I don't eat a whole lot of Cayenne Pepper but have heard it is good for multiple things.  I have however used Capsasaicin for muscle aches and for me it was no good.  The next day I was very red where I had used it and had a horrible burning sensation all that next day.  Evidentally I am very sensitive to this stuff.

I take 2 Cayenne pepper capsules every morning with my Honey Potion and I can verify that it helps for Pain, Asthma, Sinus, Cholesterol and High blood pressure. It is in fact extremely good for heart attacks and have save many lives. So now my medical kit has a new member.... Goes everywhere in my car.

I was actually in a drug trial for Crohns for a while, before I was kicked out for being too healthy.

It was a natural preparation, including cayenne.

Unfortunately, I've had to cut out cayenne or anything else spicy since gastritis hit me in 2011. sad
 
Very glad it's working well for some people here, though!! :-)

Hi Joy: I use peppermint oil when I have a headache and found that it really helps. I just have to make very sure I keep it far from my eyes when I rub it on my forehead--would be very painful, otherwise!!

Do you know if the peppermint oil is good for just plain ol' muscle aches/pain, too? Or more for circulation?

I heard it can help relax the pain in your joints. Plus it smells good. ;)

People used to rub it on their hands for arthritis many years ago.

I never heard that before! I'll definitely have to give it a try.

Yes--I love the smell! :)
