Capsicum should be considered nothing less than a wonder herb that has scientifically proven its worth!
Our PURE CAYENNE PEPPER POWDER is able to rebuild the tissue in the stomach and the peristaltic action in the intestines. It aids in assimilation and elimination, and helps the body to create hydrochloric acid, which is so necessary for good digestion and assimilation and especially of proteins. This becomes very significant when we realize that the digestive system plays the most important role in physical, emotional and mental health, because it is through all the digestive system that the glands, muscles, brain, and every other part of the body are fed.
The therapeutic value of cayenne pepper has been medically validated. Many herbalists believe that Cayenne is the most useful and valuable herb in the herb kingdom and not only for the entire digestive system, but also for the heart and circulatory system. It is a catalyst that increases the effectiveness of other herbs and superfoods. Early laboratory studies on experimental mammals suggest that capsaicin has anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic, analgesic and anti-diabetic properties. When used judiciously it also found to reduce triglycerides and LDL cholesterol levels in obese individuals. Cayenne pepper is made up of about 26 different nutrients including zinc, selenium, calcium and magnesium and potassium. It also contains vitamins such as vitamins A and C and has the complete vitamin B complex. Cayenne is a medicinal and nutritional herb and is very rich in organic calcium and potassium, which is one of the reasons it is good for the heart.
Prized for thousands of years for its healing power. Folklore from around the world claim amazing results using cayenne pepper for simple health problems to traumatic complicated issues. But cayenne pepper is not just a healer from ancient history. Recent clinical studies have been conducted on many of the old-time health applications for this miracle herb. Time after time, the therapeutic value of cayenne pepper has been medically validated and proven!!
Used for centuries by Native Americans and the Chinese and brought to Europe by Columbus, Cayenne pepper’s ancient curative powers have been confirmed by modern science. These include improving blood circulation, reducing the pain and inflammation of arthritis, alleviating colds and flu, and home remedies for common ailments. The high heat intensity of our cayenne pepper powder will help make your heart ALIVE again!!
The spiciness of peppers is measured in Scoville Heat Units (S.H.U). While this article mentions cayenne pepper, almost every time it refers to the very spicy peppers, our Pure Cayenne Pepper Powder has a rating of 90,000 Scoville Heat Units (S.H.U.) and includes all the health benefits that we have written in this article.
Most Cayenne sold in stores is about 35,000 (S.H.U.) This is not strong enough to get the best results for injury applications, pain relief, or heart and stroke conditions. But it’s fine for daily use in food preparation.
Many countries have a history of using cayenne pepper for its incredible healing properties. Cayenne pepper is used for cleansing and detoxifying the body. We use this same cayenne pepper in our MICRO PLANT POWDER formulation called Heart Alive™ which also includes a high quality Hawthorn Berry Powder, Vitamin D and our rare earth minerals for a great way to stimulate circulation, neutralize acidity and push out toxins from the entire body while helping to revive the heart function.
Cayenne pepper has been used for a variety of ailments including heartburn, sore throat, delirium, tremors, gout, paralysis, fever, gastro intestinal issues, flatulence, also hemorrhoids, heartburn, menstrual bleeding, nausea, tonsillitis, scarlet fever and upper respiratory illnesses.
The Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne has the ability to ease an upset stomach, ulcers, sore throats, spasmodic and irritating coughs, and diarrhea.
Anti-Cold and Flu Agent
Cayenne pepper aids in breaking up and moving congested mucus. Once mucus begins to leave the body, relief from flu symptoms generally follows.
The results of one study indicated that cayenne pepper could effectively prevent the formation of the fungal pathogens
Migraine Headache Prevention
This may be related to the pepper’s ability to stimulate a pain response in a different area of the body, by undoing the brains attention from the pain site to the new site. Following this initial pain reaction, the nerve fibers have a depleted substance P (the nerve’s pain chemical), and the perception of pain is lessened.
Cayenne is an anti-agent and may even help relieve allergies.
Cayenne is a well-known digestive aid. It stimulates the digestive tract, increasing the flow of enzyme production and gastric juices. This aids the body’s ability to metabolize food (and toxins). Cayenne pepper is also helpful for relieving intestinal gas. It stimulates intestinal peristaltic motion, aiding in both assimilation and elimination.
Cayenne’s properties make it a great herb for many chronic and degenerative conditions.
Helps Produce Saliva
Cayenne stimulates the production of saliva, an important key to excellent digestion and maintaining optimal oral health.
Useful for Blood Clots
Cayenne pepper also helps reduce atherosclerosis, encourages prevention of blood clots which can help reduce the chances of a heart attack or stroke.
Cayenne is a known circulatory stimulant. It also increases the pulse of our lymphatic and digestive rhythms. By heating the body, the natural process of detoxification is streamlined. Cayenne also causes us to sweat which is another important process of detoxification.
Extremely high in a substance called capsaicin, cayenne pepper acts to cause temporary pain on the skin, which sends chemical messengers from the skin into the joint, offering relief for joint pain.
Cayenne is an excellent preservative and has been used traditionally to prevent food contamination from bacteria.
Possible Anti-Cancer Agent
Studies done at the Loma Linda University in California found that cayenne pepper may help prevent lung cancer in smokers. This may be again related to cayenne’s high quantity of capsaicin, a substance that might help stop the formation of tobacco-induced lung tumors. Other studies have also shown a similar reaction in cayenne’s resistance to liver tumors.
Supports Weight Loss
Scientists at the Laval University in Quebec found that participants who took cayenne pepper for breakfast were found to have less appetite, leading to less caloric intake throughout the day. Cayenne is also a great metabolic-booster, aiding the body in burning excess fats throughout the body.
Cayenne helps to keep blood pressure level normalized. It also balances the body of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
Remedy for Toothache
Cayenne is an excellent agent against tooth and gum diseases.
May be used as a poultice and cayenne has been used to treat snake bites, rheumatism, sores, wounds and lumbago.
Medicinal Use and Health Benefit of Cayenne Pepper (Capsicum)
“In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in, if they are still breathing–I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea: a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water,
and within minutes they are up and around.” Dr. Christopher
Let Food Be Thy Medicine… Hippocrates
Cayenne Pepper and Medicinal Qualities
Indigestion Symptoms Reduced
In a recent letter to the editors of the New England Journal of Medicine, three Italian doctors describe how they were able to reduce patients’ reported indigestion symptoms by more than half – by prescribing red pepper powder. In a study of 30 patients with functional indigestion, half of the participants received a placebo, while the other half took 2.5 grams of red pepper powder each day (divided into capsules taken before each of three meals). Both groups took their respective treatments for five weeks, and rated their symptoms each day on a scale of zero to three (higher scores indicated more severe symptoms). By the third week, the red pepper group showed a significant advantage over the control group. And by week five, the pepper group’s symptoms had declined 60 percent from their baseline scores – while the control group’s scores had only decreased about half as much. The symptom scores included ratings for pain, a feeling of fullness, nausea, and an overall score. The cayenne pepper powder produced significant gains in all four areas.
Cayenne can rebuild the tissue in the stomach and the peristaltic action in the intestines. It aids elimination and assimilation, and helps the body to create hydrochloric acid, which is so necessary for good digestion and assimilation, especially of proteins. All this becomes very significant when we realize that the digestive system plays the most important role in mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health, as it is through the digestive system that the brain, glands, muscles and every other part of the body are fed.
Cayenne has been known to stop heart attacks within 30 seconds. For example, when a 90-year-old man in Oregon had a severe heart attack, his daughter was able to get Cayenne extract into his mouth. He was pronounced dead by the medics, but within a few minutes, he regained consciousness. On the way to the hospital, he remained in a semi-conscious state, but the daughter kept giving him the Cayenne extract. By the time they got to the hospital, he had fully recovered and wanted to go home and mow the lawn. The doctor asked what she had given him, as he said it was the closest thing to a miracle he had ever seen.
Capsicum (cayenne pepper) is said to be unequal for its ability to boost circulation and increase heart action. Capsicum exerts a variety of desirable actions on the entire cardiovascular system. It has the extraordinary ability to enhance cardiovascular performance while actually lowering blood pressure. Capsicum has an energizing effect on the entire system. It has traditionally been used for overcoming fatigue and restoring stamina and vigor. It is a natural stimulant without the threatening side effects (palpitations, hyper-activity or rise in blood pressure) of most other stimulating agents.
Because Capsicum boots peripheral circulation and stimulates organ secretion, it expedites the therapeutic delivery and action of nutrients in the body. It will ensure the rapid and even distribution of the active principles of available nutrients to critical function centers, including those involved in cellular respiration, metabolic data transmission and neural-hormonal action. The remarkable ability of Capsicum to stimulate organ secretion and even heart action makes it one of the strongest natural stimulants known. Clearly, Capsicum should be considered nothing less than a wonder herb that has scientifically proven its worth!
If you want to carry something in your first aid kit for a heart attack, carry a cayenne tincture. A cup of cayenne tea, one tsp of cayenne in a cup of hot water stopped a heart attack in under three minutes. If a heart attack should occur a teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper in a glass of hot water can be taken until the crisis has passed. Dr. Anderson also knew of a doctor who rushed out into the parking lot and put cayenne tincture into the mouth of a man who had died of a heart attack while he was parking his car. Within a few minutes the man’s heart starting beating again. Using cayenne and hawthorn berries together has a most incredible effect upon the heart. He believes that a regimen of cayenne and hawthorn berries for several months will greatly strengthen the heart, and possibly prevent heart attacks. He states further that if an attack were to occur in someone who had followed this regimen, chances are very good that no damage would occur.
Have Cayenne Extract available for Emergencies
It is a good idea to always have some Cayenne extract on hand for emergencies. Dr. Anderson carries capsules of cayenne with him in the car and whenever he goes hiking, backpacking or mountain climbing. He says, “You never know when you may find someone having a heart attack or some other emergency.”
The following stories demonstrate only a few of the remarkable emergency uses of cayenne:
If a hemorrhage occurs in the lungs, stomach, uterus or nose, it is suggested that a teaspoon of extract (or a teaspoon of cayenne powder in a cup of hot water) be given every 15 minutes until the crisis has passed. The bleeding should stop in 10-30 seconds. The reason for this is that rather than the blood pressure being centralized, it is equalized by the Cayenne, and the clotting action of the blood becomes more rapid. For external bleeding, take cayenne internally and pour cayenne directly on the wound.
In a double-blind study, 30 individuals with dyspepsia were given either 2.5 grams daily of red pepper powder (divided up and taken prior to meals) or placebo for 5 weeks. By the third week of treatment, individuals taking red pepper were experiencing significant improvements in pain, bloating, and nausea as compared to placebo, and relative improvement lasted through the end of the study.
A placebo-controlled crossover study failed to find benefit, but it only enrolled 11 participants, far too few to have much chance of identifying a treatment effect.
All double-blind studies of topical capsaicin (or cayenne) suffer from one drawback: it isn’t really possible to hide the burning sensation that occurs during initial use of the treatment. For this reason, such studies probably aren’t truly double-blind. It has been suggested that instead of an inactive placebo, researchers should use some other substance (such as camphor) that causes at least mild burning. However, such treatments might also have therapeutic benefits; they have a long history of use for pain as well.
Because of these complications, the evidence for topical treatments cited below is less meaningful than it might at first appear.
Capsaicin cream is well established as a modestly helpful pain-relieving treatment for post-herpetic neuropathy (the pain that lingers after an attack of shingles) peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain that occurs most commonly as a side effect of diabetes, but may occur with HIV as well as other conditions), nerve pain after cancer surgery and arthritis.
Capsaicin instilled into the nose may be helpful for cluster headache. (The fact that this has even been considered a viable treatment option shows how painful cluster headaches can be!) Actual cayenne rather than capsaicin has been tested for pain as well. A 3-week, double-blind trial of 154 individuals with back pain found that cayenne applied topically as a plaster improved pain to a greater extent than placebo.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of almost 200 individuals found that use of topical capsaicin can improve itching as well as overall severity of psoriasis. Benefits were also seen in a smaller double-blind study of topical capsaicin for psoriasis. Topical capsaicin is thought to be helpful for various itchy skin conditions, such as prurigo nodularis, but double-blind studies are lacking.
Researchers found capsaicin exhibited anticancer activity (it induced programmed cell death to human cancer cells without affecting normal cells) against pancreatic cancer, an aggressive form of the disease typified by exceptionally poor outcomes.”
Chronic headache sufferers may soon have some new alternatives. The active ingredient in cayenne peppers, capsaicin, is believed to bring headache relief by depleting Substance P, a neurotransmitter that helps send pain signals.
Richard Schulze – “If you take cayenne pepper in capsules, you may be wasting your time and never getting the cures I got with my patients.”
A quote by Dr. Christopher – In 35 years of practice and working with the people and teaching, I have never been on a house call where I lost one heart attack patient and the reason is whenever I go in, if they are still breathing, I give them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of warm to hot water, and within minutes they are up and around). This is one of the fastest acting aids we could ever give for the heart, because it feeds that heart immediately. Most hearts are suffering from malnutrition because of the processed foods that are consumed, but with the cayenne pepper it gets an amazing, powerful boost of real food. Because a heart attack can happen at any time to your friends or loved ones and even yourself. Taking cayenne pepper powder in warm to hot water is faster working than tablets, capsules, or cold water, because the warm to hot water opens up the cell structure to make it expand and accept the cayenne that much faster and it goes directly to the heart through the artery system and feeds it with this powerful superfood.
