I did an earlier blog on the use of quinine by ballet dancers for immediate recovery from muscle cramps and the insanity of the FDA in banning quinine.
It turns out the new Hotspot, which is just hot juices from pepper and ginger, works directly on the nerves via a channel called the TRP transient receptor potential, in the mouth and esophagus.
The idiots at the FDA will not ban Hotspot because it is common food items and the direct channel to the nerves is presumably understood.
Of course quinine worked the same way and so would many other home remedies.
The new discovery is wonderful news to anyone who does or may suffer from muscle cramps.
It also supports those of us who abhor the intrusion of ignorant fools with the power of a government agency from sticking their stupid rules our lives.
