Cayenne Pepper Health Benefits - Health Benefits of Capsicum
Cayenne, also known as Capsicum, is one of the most important herbs for health and wellness. It is said to be a
"must have" for anyone who uses herbs for remedies or general health. You will quite often find Cayenne combined
with other herbs, because it acts as a catalyst which stimulates your body to heal faster. Stimulation is a key
factor in healing your body, and if Cayenne is taken regularly it can reach every part of your body, helping with
healing, cleansing, and getting everything to begin to function the way that it was designed to.
Cayenne is very high in Vitamin C, and that alone makes it a great choice for taking when you feel a cold coming
on. Try mixing it with a herbal antibiotic when treating the likes of flu or infections as it can helps in
resolving the problems that much quicker.
Cayenne is also a great herbal choice for improving circulation. In fact, the entire circulatory system is
helped with this herb because it feeds the cell structure of arteries, veins, and capillaries, and this in turn
helps them to regain elasticity.
In addition, Cayenne helps regulate the flow of blood, and normalize blood pressure. The blood pressure
regulation makes it an excellent herbal choice for either high or low blood pressure problems. Taking Cayenne will
not increase your heart rate, but it will strengthen your pulse within minutes of taking it.
Cayenne has been used to treat shock victims or to prevent people from going into shock. It is also known to
stop bleeding both internal or external.
If you find that your arms or hands 'go to sleep', especially if you lie on them when sleeping, try taking a
cayenne tablet before going to bed. You will more than likely find that because your circulation is improved, you
will not suffer with your hands and arms during the night.
For minor cuts and grazes that are also bleeding, sprinkle some cayenne directly onto the wound in order to make
it stop. Putting Cayenne onto a wound will feel warm, but it will not create any burns or blisters and does not
generally cause additional pain. Treating wounds this way also helps stimulate healing as well as stopping the
bleeding at the same time.
Cayenne is said to diminish the symptoms of sore throats as well. If you feel a sore throat coming on or you
already have one, try mixing some cayenne in warm water and then take it as a gargle. Do this every fifteen to
thirty minutes and you may be surprised just how quickly your sore throat disappeared.
