Are you aware of the amazing properties of Cayenne (Capsicum frutescens)?
This amazing herb is an incredible help for the whole circulatory system. It regulates the blood flow, equalizing blood pressure, and strengthening the heart, capillaries, arteries, and veins. In fact, Cayenne is a circulatory stimulant, meaning that it feeds the necessary elements into the cell structure of the blood vessels so that they regain youthful elasticity and so that the blood pressure reduces itself to normal. It can do wonders in toning and rebuilding the heart and keeping it in top condition.
Besides rebuilding the circulatory system, it also cleanses it by breaking down cholesterol and removing mucus from the body.
It is ideal in case of low or high blood pressure, insufficient peripheral circulation, varicose veins, heart troubles (palpitations, heart weakness, etc.), menstrual pains, nosebleeds, etc.
It is important to take Cayenne raw in order to get its medicinal effects. However, it should be avoided when taking anticoagulants such as Aspirin and Warfarin.
Externally, a Cayenne salve can be used as a rub for nerve-related and rheumatic pains, as well as for easing menstrual cramps. Cayenne works by increasing the blood flow to the area bringing healing, and capsaicin’s heating effect reduces the amount of substance P, a chemical that acts as a pain messenger in the body.
