You probably already have this spice in your kitchen, but what you don’t know is that this spice can improve your overall health. I am talking about cayenne.
This spice comes from a cayenne plant and almost every household has it. It is full of vitamins A, B, and C, and also potassium and calcium. Cayenne spice also works as a catalyst, which means that it increases the power of other herbs.
Since cayenne increases temperature of the body, mucus is released from the respiratory tract. So, you probably felt flushed while your nose started to run after eating hot salsa and chips. That means your sinuses are clearing due to a fresh hot pepper.
Also, cayenne stimulates circulation and it also promotes sweating, so because of that it has diaphoretic action. That means the fever will go away with this spice and sinusitis will disappear too.
You probably already know that cayenne pepper helps with respiratory passages. You didn’t? Well, now you know. But more interesting than that is the discovery that Dr. Sanjay K. Srivastava and the team of scientist discovered:
“Our results demonstrate that capsaicin is a potent anticancer agent, induces apoptosis in cancer cells and produces no significant damage to normal pancreatic cells, indicating its potential use as a novel chemotherapeutic agent for pancreatic cancer”.
Besides the fact that cayenne can fight cancer, it can also protect your heart from heart attacks. It is known that this incredible spice can stop heart attacks in just 30 seconds. So, it is advised to carry cayenne tincture in a first aid kit. Doctor John R. Christopher says that in 35 years of his work he never lost a heart attack patient because he each time poured a cup of cayenne tea and gave it to a patient.
There are also some studies that show how cayenne can help when treating obese people. According to those studies consumption of 10 grams of cayenne pepper can help in reducing appetite and boosting metabolism. Besides that, cayenne can be used as a detox. You just have to make and drink one cayenne drink per day.
Cayenne Powerful Drink
Just take a glass of water or juice and stir 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. It is spicy, but it will help you a lot.
“If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other.”- Dr. Richard Schulze stated
So, if you want to add one spice to your diet, my top pick would be cayenne pepper. There aren’t any negative sides, so you will only feel relief when using it. Enjoy!
