Cayenne Pepper Health Benefits

The cayenne pepper health benefits are truly remarkable. This humble herb, which is largely passed over by the public, just may be the most powerful aid to your health on the planet. I do not exaggerate here the importance and remarkable array of the health benefits of cayenne pepper.

So, what are the specific cayenne pepper benefits?

Let's go over just a few of them now.

If cayenne pepper did nothing else but kill cancer cells, it would be hailed as a truly magnificent medicinal herb but we're just getting started.

Cayenne pepper (or cayanne pepper as it's sometimes spelled) can cure heart disease. By drinking a glass of very warm water with cayenne powder, you instantly nourish the heart. Famed herbalist Dr. John R. Christopher wrote that if he could get a heart attack victim to take a glass of cayenne pepper water, it would literally and instantly stop the heart attack. (Of course, get the victim to the emergency room and/or to a doctor as soon as possible.)

Cayenne also increases your metabolism by extending its influence over the venous structure or entire cardiovascular system. It feeds the cell structure of the veins, arteries, blood vessels and capillaries. Upon intake, it immediately equalizes blood pressure as well. As a first aid remedy, cayenne pepper will stop internal hemorrhaging. If the patient can drink a glass of extra warm cayanne pepper water, Dr. Christopher wrote, " the count of ten the bleeding will stop. Instead of all the pressure being centralized, it is equalized and the clotting becomes more rapid." It can also be used for the treatment of wounds.

Cayenne actually has clinically-proven anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties allowing it to not only stanch the bleeding but to disenfect the wound as well.

Worried about your cholesterol? Cayenne cleans the arteries as well, helping to rid the body of the bad LDL cholesterol as well as eliminating triglycerides.

It may seem like a contradiction, but cayenne pepper also heals ulcerative stomachs while simultaneously re-building stomach tissue. It facilitates healing with stomach and intestinal ulcers.

It's great your intestinal tract, and it stimulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines. It aids in better assimilation of nutrients as well as alluded for better elimination.  Cayenne pepper for ulcer problems is not something most would have considered but I can personally testify to that capability of cayenne.

Cayenne Pepper and Heart Health

Cayenne pepper on your body is dramatic and should be a part of everyone's daily health regime. Let's discuss now the amazing healing properties of cayenne pepper with the human heart.

Now deceased herbalist John R. Christopher said that one of his most intriguing stories in his career was how he could stop a heart attack if he could get the patient to drink a glass of warm cayenne water. Here is what he said, "A teaspoon of cayenne should bring the patient out of the heart attack."

Perhaps now you can see why cayenne pepper is regarded as a true "miracle herb." With over 700,000 thousands Americans experiencing a stroke each year and almost half a million dying yearly of either heart disease or related issues, believe it not the cure is as close as your local health food establishment. How should you take cayenne? Ideally orally in a drink.

If cayenne pepper is taken religiously, it will substantially improve your heart health as well as your venous structure. Drink it with warm water with distilled water being preferred. Start with no more than a quarter of a teaspoon in a glass of warm water. Your body will adapt quickly. If drinking it is unpalatable to you, I recommend you take only one capsule a day.

By drinking it with warm water, though, it as the warm cayenne pepper water works faster than capsules as it opens the cell structure and allows the cayenne to be accpeted by the system that much faster. Plus, by drinking it warm, it goes directly to the eart, t and artery system.

Other studies are underway regarding cayenne immune system benefits. It will be interesting to see what they find.

What about the cayenne pepper water lemon maple syrup drink? While cayenne and lemon combine nicely, adding maple syrup to it to provide a magical weight loss elixir is debatable. While it may very well be a fantastic weight loss drink, I tend to be leery of such claims. It can't hurt to take, though, for I personally like adding lemon to my cayenne pepper drink.


In summary, cayenne pepper is one of the greatest medicinal herbs in the world and it's as close as your local health food or grocery store. It's inexpensive too. Cayenne pepper is so much more than a condiment or a hot spice. It just may be the greatest herb in the world. It has many beneficial health benefits.
