What is it?
How does it work?
The active ingredient Capsicum in the Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Patch relaxes the muscles by increasing the blood flow, the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the cells, and accelerating removal of metabolic by-products. It acts as a pain blocker as it depletes and prevents the re-accumulation of the neurotransmitter Substance P which transmits pain signals to the brain. Clinical studies and scientific publications prove the efficacy of Capsaicin in the treatment of muscle and back pain.
