Capsicum Frutescen is a pepper species that is broken up into two different types of plants- the Tabasco Chile and the Malagueta Pepper. The active ingredient in these peppers is capsaicin, which interacts with sensory neurons by binding to receptors in the brain called Vanilloid Receptor Subtype 1 (VR1). VR1 is an ion channel that, when stimulated by heat, allows cations to travel into the cell to help soothe those aching muscles.
