Cayenne Pepper Healing
Cayenne pepper healing explores the health benefits of cayenne pepper. Cayenne health benefits derive from the cayenne extract capsaicin. The many benefits of capsaicin can be enjoyed by using it both internally and topically.
To ease the pain of shingles, rub a bit of capsaicin cream or ointment into the affected area.
To relieve headache pain, use a capsaicin nasal spray.
What is Capsaicin?
Capsaicin is the substance in cayenne peppers (often misspelled cayanne pepper) that makes them hot. It puts the spice in fresh and dried chillies and adds flavor to cayenne recipes.But there are also medical uses for cayenne pepper.
The Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper
First of all, cayenne peppers are nutritional powerhouses. Pound for pound, they contain more vitamin C than citrus fruit. They also contain carotenoids and flavonoids which are believed to reduce the risk of some types of cancer and heart disease.
Flavonoids may also work to prevent tooth decay and strengthen the immune system as well as the blood vessels.
Next, there are saponins found only in hot pepper seeds. These are called capsicidins and they are believed to have antibiotic properties.
Curing with Cayenne
Capsaicin is the component responsible for most cayenne pepper health benefits. Taken internally, it stimulates blood circulation (especially to the hands, feet and skin) and alters the way body temperature is regulated.
Fresh cayenne fruit, cayenne pepper extract or powder can all be used to relieve gas or to aid digestion.
If you've ever eaten hot peppers you know that they promote sweating and thin mucus secretions. If you're congested, a bowl of chilli can clear your sinuses.
A pinch of cayenne pepper powder in a cup of hot water makes an excellent gargle to sooth a sore throat.
External Cayenne Pepper Healing
Capsaicin has an irritating effect when applied to the skin.
Later, it becomes a topical analgesic and can relieve pain that nothing else will touch. Many people obtain relief from conditions from arthritis to vascular headaches by use of a capsaicin cream, ointment, or nasal spray.
Health Secrets of Cayenne Powder
Capsaicin powder is an herbal styptic. It can be used to arrest excessive bleeding.
You don't need to buy capsaicin capsules to try this cayenne pepper cure. The ground cayenne on the grocer's shelf will do just fine.
Test it the next time you cut yourself. Even if the cut is so large that you need to go to the hospital for stitches. Pack the wound with cayenne powder before you leave the house.
It doesn't sting and won't infect the wound. The nurse will have to clean the capsaicin powder out of the wound but you won't lose nearly as much blood as you would if you only applied pressure.
The ability to warm constantly cold feet is another of the benefits of cayenne pepper. Sprinkle the powder inside your socks to obtain cayenne pepper healing for your cold feet.
