Cayenne is a chili pepper species native to the tropic regions of Central and South America. Its characteristic fiery heat comes courtesy of capsaicin, the chemical compound found in the fruiting body of pepper plants. Named after a town in French Guiana, the cayenne pepper can range from 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville Units, the measurement used to quantify the amount of heat produced by various pepper types.
Cayenne can be used topically as an antibacterial and as a natural pain reliever. When applied directly to the skin, capsaicin desensitizes local nerve endings by blocking the neurotransmitter called substance P, which carries pain signals to the brain. For this reason, capsaicin has been found to be useful against diabetic neuropathy, the painful damage to nerves in the body associated with diabetes. *
Cayenne also has cardiovascular and circulation benefits. Cayenne and other red chili peppers help to reduce blood cholesterol and platelet aggregation. Capsaicin alters the part of the body that regulates body temperature, which stimulates proper blood flow to the hands and feet and improves general blood circulation within the organs of the body.*
As a digestive aid, cayenne increases the secretion of saliva, which contains enzymes that help to break down carbohydrates, and digestive juices, which contain acids and enzymes that further break down food particles. Capsaicin is thought to be helpful in healing digestive ulcers by inhibiting the growth of H. pylori, the bacteria that can trigger ulcer formation. Capsaicin stimulates the secretion of mucous in the digestive tract, which coats the intestinal walls. This mucous coating covers existing ulcers and helps to prevent further tissue damage.*
Dr. Hulda Clark recommended Cayenne to support the body’s natural defenses with natural compounds that discourage the proliferation of foreign organisms known to occupy the human body, bringing about balance between body and microorganisms.*
