Cayenne: Ten Reasons Why this Spicy Herb Should be Used as a Daily Tonic

(NaturalNews) There's a vastly underrated herb that is commonly used as a spice for hot foods. Its powder is derived from ground up dried shells of chili peppers. Famed herbalist Dr. John Christopher was so involved with this herb that he was nicknamed Dr. Cayenne. And Dr. Richard Shultze recommends putting cayenne at the top of the ten most important herbs to have in a home "... because it will make the other nine work better".

Cayenne powder is an instant blood flow stimulant, enabling it to promote blood circulation and carry other nutrients to cells more efficiently. But additionally, cayenne has its own set of virtues, especially when it comes to cardiovascular health.

Ten Reasons To Use Cayenne

1. Strengthens the heart, even stops heart attacks in progress
2. Increases blood flow and cleans arterial wall plaque while rebuilding red blood cells
3. Aids digestion, even helps eliminate ulcers (surprise!)
4. Stimulates the liver and helps heal the gall bladder
5. Kills prostate cancer cells and shrinks tumors
6. Anti inflammatory eases arthritis
7. Shrinks hemorrhoids
8. Topical application on open wounds stops bleeding
9. Emulsifies triglycerides
10. Anti fungal, promotes waste elimination

All inexpensive and without side effects, cayenne is unlike Big Pharma heart meds that run up a large monthly bill with side effects that demand other meds, unless death becomes the first side effect!

Choosing and Using the Right Cayenne

These days, commercial chili peppers are getting irradiated more and more. So it's best to get organic cayenne powder from a reliable source. Cayenne powders are rated according to their heat potential with Scofield Heat Units (SCUs), usually at 40,000, 60,000, and 90,000 SCUs. If you're new to this, start at 40,000 SCUs. For maximum effectiveness, less than 40,000 SCUs should be avoided.

The SCU level determines the level of capsaicin, which is the essential ingredient of cayenne. There are even capsaicin capsules, which are not considered as effective as taking the powder in solution. The solution's heat kicks the nervous system into high gear through the nerve endings of the mouth and throat. Most users prefer mixing a teaspoonful of cayenne pepper with a glass of lemon and water.

Start with a quarter or half teaspoonful to get used to it while building up to a full teaspoonful up to three times daily.

But this author, who is not a fan of hot, spicy foods, uses it differently. One teaspoonful of cayenne powder can be mixed into a small amount of plain water in a lidded jar, enabling you to shake it for optimum mixing. Use just enough water to take it all into the mouth with one big gulp. Then hold it in the mouth very briefly before swallowing it completely.

Follow up by sipping a glass of cold beverage, especially one that also is also good for the cardiovascular system, such as Jamaica (huh-my-ka) or hibiscus tea, or maybe even some cold Hawthorne tea. These help cool down your mouth and throat while adding to the heart health benefits.

Dr. Schulze explains: "Cayenne pepper contains many wonderful phytochemicals, vitamins [extremely bioavailable C & E], and minerals [including magnesium]. It cleans the blood allowing hormonal signals to make their way unimpeded through your system, thus the enhanced immune response." (Phrases in brackets from Dr. Christopher).

As stated earlier, start small and build up to a full teaspoonful two to three times a day each day. It does get easier, and it doesn't get any cheaper or safer for maintaining or creating cardiovascular health as well as adding all the other health benefits mentioned above. Bottoms up!
