5 Health Benefits of Cayenne

  1. Migraine Headache Prevention

    Peppers stimulate a pain response in a different area of the body, making the brain pay attention to the new site. Nerve fibers contain and pain chemical which becomes depleted following the initial pain reaction.  The pain is still there but the pepper’s reaction changes the perception of the pain.

  2. Digestive Aid

    Cayenne stimulates the digestive tract and increases the flow of enzyme and gastric fluids. This causes food metabolism to increase. Cayenne also reduces intestinal gas.

  3. Joint-Pain Reliever

    Capsaicin, the valuable ingredient in cayenne peppers causes temporary pain on skin tissue, sending chemical messengers from the skin into the joint, relieving joint pain.

  4. Supports Weight Loss

    A Laval University study found that participants who ate cayenne for breakfast had a reduced appetite. Cayenne’s metabolic boost aids in the burning of excess amounts of fats.

  5. Anti-Cold and Flu Agent

    Cayenne pepper is great for breaking up congested mucus. Less mucus means relief from flu symptoms.
