About Cayenne and How It Heals

Spices have been used medicinally for thousands of years. Today, modern science is beginning to uncover and discover the ultimate power of spices and herbs as weapons against illnesses from Alzheimer's disease to Cancer.

Bharat Aggarwal, PhDprof. at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and author of Healing Spices (Sterling, Jan.2011) writes, "We're now starting to see a scientific basis for why people have been using spices medicinally for thousands of years." 

There is compelling evidence that many spices help manage chronic conditions and by using spices we avoid using other ingredients linked with health problems such as salt, added sugars, MSG and saturated fats.

Cayenne is a close relative to chiles, which create sensations of heat although the spices actually work to trigger the body's natural cooling system. Cayenne is made of a compound called Capsaicin that is an active phytochemical that offers a myriad of health benefits. It is a natural blood thinner that works to improve circulation and blood clots. It is the greatest blood circulation stimulant known and increases circulation immediately.

Studies show that cayenne can also help treat heartburn and ulcers by boosting the ability of stomach cells to resist infection and helps our hearts by keeping 'bad' LDL cholesterol from turning into a more lethal, artery-clogging form.

Capsaicin is an antioxidant which may also be an "ally in the battle against pancreatic cancer" according to a 2008 University of Pittsburg School of Medicine study. The American Association of Cancer Research found it is an effective deterrent against cancer, and research in Japan indicates it destroys prostate cancer cells in men. 

Cayenne pepper also works to: stop heart attacks, remove plaque from arteries, shrink hemorrhoids, improve circulation, help rebuild flesh harmed or destroyed from frostbite, be a diuretic, treat congestion, cold and indigestion, and it acts as a great insect repellent.  See the full list of remarkable health benefits at Healthy Snips.

Research also shows that cayenne can boost metabolism and quell appetite, helping to reduce calorie intake.

Enjoy this wonderful spice by adding a dash or two to potatoes (french fries, baked or mashed), curries, chocolate desserts, dressings, pasta sauce and tomato soup. 

If you add too much and set your mouth on fire, reach for bread, rice or milk...NOT water! 

To lessen the heat, discard the chiles' seeds and ribs, which hold much of the capsaicin ~ and remember to be careful not to rub your face or eyes when handling the peppers!
