Health Benefits

It's said that a teaspoon of cayenne should bring a patient right out of a heart attack. There's a natural herbalist by the name of Dr. John Christopher that firmly believes this and has used it many of times. Cayenne pepper has great healing properties for our heart. Not only this but for our circulatory system this pepper can help feed necessary elements into our cell structures to help make them more elastic again. This can help blood pressure to return to it's normal number, help in circulation, altogether it's easier on our heart. It also helps regulate the flow of blood.

Cayenne pepper may also be used to alleviate the symptoms of allergies, which is a useful note to remember during allergy season.

If you have a wound this pepper is said to help with healing, resulting in minimal scar tissue. It also can provide us with energy in our daily lives. Who doesn't need that?

I know it's kind of hard to believe because this is a spicy pepper but it's said to help with heartburn. It's suppose to ease stomach upsets, even ulcers and diarrhea.

I nice little home remedy for a sore throat to know is to gargle cayenne pepper with some honey. It's supposed relieve the pain.This gargle will also aid with heartburn and coughs. As well as diarrhea as said before.

Cayenne pepper also relieves the pain of toothache. It's great for our teeth altogether. It can help preserve the teeth from rotting and when you rub a little bit on your gums it's suppose to help prevent pyorrhea.

This pepper is an anti-fungal agent. It's been indicated that it'll prevent formations of fungal pathogens. It's also been known to help prevent migraines.

If you're one who suffers from arthritis or any kind of inflammation this pepper helps with inflammation, it is a natural anti-inflammatory. This means it can also aid with those who have diabetes, psoriasis, herpes and as I said arthritis type nerve damage.

This pepper helps us produce saliva as well. If you're one that suffers from a dry mouth maybe this pepper is the one for you. Cayenne pepper also helps us loose weight and is a great detox agent.
