We evidenced the potential of HEPm in inhibiting mechanical and thermal hyperalgesia (heat and cold) in postoperative pain in mice, without causing sedation or locomotor dysfunction. Even though the precise mechanism by which Polygala molluginifolia promotes its beneficial effects is not completely known, we suggest that this may be mediated, at least in part, by the activation of endogenous opioid receptors and/or by inhibition of TRPV1 and TRPA1 channels, peripherally and centrally.
