Capzasin-P effectively minimizes aches and pains of muscles and joints.

Not only does Capzasin-P relieve arthritis pain but it can also help relieve painful back aches or muscle sprains. The active ingredient used in Capzasin-P is Capsaicin, a natural component clinically proven to reduce minor aches and pains in the body.
