Capsaicin is a phenolic acid and phytonutrient (a group of chemical compounds that occur naturally in plants and have multiple health benefits but are not considered essential to human health) that is found in chilli peppers. It is the main reason peppers are so hot and has been linked with cancer prevention, pain relief, reduced inflammation and more.
Capsaicin was first extracted from chilli peppers in an impure form by Christian Friedrich Bucholz in 1816. It was later extracted in a pure form by Karl Micko in 1898. In 1919 the chemical composition for capsaicin was determined by E.K.Nelson. It was then later synthesised by Ernst Späth and Stephen Darling in 1930.
