Spice Up Your Life: The Health Benefits of Cayenne

The amazing Cayenne Pepper, its health benefits are far and wide. Most notably, it has been documented that a teaspoon of cayenne in warm water can stop a heart attack in thirty seconds! (see disclamer below) With over 750,000 people experiencing a stroke each year in the United States and 1.5 million people having a heart attack, it might be time to look into the benefits of cayenne. Many people know that cayenne works great for stimulating circulation, but it also feeds the vital elements into the cell structure of capillaries, veins, arteries and helps adjust blood pressure to normal levels.  It actually cleans the arteries, helping to rid the body of the bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. 

What else can this "miracle herb" do for you? Studies have shown that capsaicin, the chief metabolite compound in cayenne, has the ability to kill cancer cells within the prostate, lungs and pancreas! Believe it or not, cayenne is often used to cure stomach ulcers and intestinal and other internal bleeding. It alleviates allergies, muscle cramping, digestive issues, cleanses the blood, cures hemorrhoids, eases sea sickness, increases your metabolism and gives you energy. If taking internally, it is best to take cayenne in a liquid form. When applied topically, cayenne can help heal wounds with minimal scarring, ease arthritis pain and other imflammation, headaches and toothaches.

With flu and cold season just around the corner, drink warm cayenne tea to boost your immune system, soothe a sore throat and bring down a fever. Cayenne has even been used to cure scarlet fever. If your feet get cold in the winter time, sprinkle some cayenne powder in your shoes to warm them up. The health benefits of cayenne go well beyond what is listed here. It might be time to spice up your life!
