Health Benefits: Cayenne Pepper

If you’re a chilli fan, you probably know all about cayenne pepper. Originating from South America, cayenne is a beautiful red chilli pepper, and is cousin to paprika, jalapeno and the bell pepper. It is the most prominent powdered chilli spice used in cooking by many different cultures in traditional cuisines. The abundant health benefits of cayenne pepper may surprise you, with some detailed below:

  • Stimulates blood flow and circulation
  • Rids the body of LDL (bad) cholesterol, as well as preventing the formation of blood clots, making it an invaluable natural treatment for cardiovascular and heart problems
  • Relieves allergies, muscle cramping, headaches and migraines
  • Effective in settling symptoms of heartburn, ulcers, as well as aiding in digestion
  • It has been suggested to have antimicrobial properties, helping to treat ailments such as the common cold, flu, irritating coughs and other bacterial and fungal growth
  • The capsaicin (the active ingredient that makes chilli hot) in cayenne pepper makes it an excellent treatment for joint pain, inflammation and degenerative disorders
  • Cayenne also has natural detoxifying properties, helping the body to rid toxins from the blood
  • It is a nerve stimulant and has an exceptionally warming effect on the body, aiding in the dilation and equalization of the arterial and venous system, as well as reducing and stabilising high blood pressure
  • There are also many studies suggesting the use of cayenne pepper with milk to reduce swelling of hardened tumour growth, as well as holding anticancer properties

Want to start using cayenne pepper but don’t know how? For those with blood pressure abnormalities and weakened cardiovascular systems, I strongly recommend adding at least 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in warm water with the juice of 1/2 a lemon, taken each morning upon rising. The easiest way though, is to begin adding it to your cooking – it adds a wonderful kick and brings any dish to life! It is used extensively in Indian cuisine, as well as South American, Asian and Spanish cooking. Try sprinkling a little on top of your eggs for breakfast tomorrow!
