Possible Interaction: Capsaicin and Sodium Chloride



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In contrast, when capsaicin was applied bilaterally, the side that had previously received sequential NaCl was perceived as having a significantly more intense irritation, consistent with cross-sensitization.
Physiology & Behavior  •  2001  |  View Paper
Capsaicin selectively suppressed the responses to NaCl of the CT nerve fibers (N-fibers) that are sodium-specific (insensitive or poorly sensitive to potassium).
The suppressive effect of capsaicin on the response of the N-type fibers to 100 mM NaCl was significantly stronger than the effect of 5% ethanol.
capsaicin can modify the response of CT fibers to NaCl.
