The Power of Cayenne

Cayenne is not just a red hot chili pepper used in cooking, rather it has a multitude of medicinal functions. Cayenne contains a natural compound called capsaicin, which helps promote healthy cardiovascular function. Consider cayenne to be one of your main herbal first aids. Some of the things that cayenne can do for you include the following:

  • Boost blood circulation throughout the body including the brain thus improving brain clarity and memory
  • Strengthen the heart, arteries, capillaries, and nerves
  • Normalize blood pressure
  • Stop internal and external bleeding
  • Improve indigestion, poor digestion, and stomach ulcers
  • Open the breathing passages in asthmatics

Cayenne is the greatest herbal aid to circulation and can be used on a daily basis. It can be used for multiple emergencies such as heart attacks, strokes, fainting, bleeding, arthritic pain, and inflammation. Some herbalists add it to nearly every formulation. Fortunately, it is an inexpensive supplement. For example, you can get 300 250mg capsules from Swanson Health Products for $5.99. One bottle could last 10 months.

Healthy Tip: Try gargling cayenne in water to treat your sore throat.
