Cayenne pepper has been called “the king of herbs” because it has been prized for thousands of years for its healing powers. The famed herbal healer Dr. Shulze said, “If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other.”
Cayenne should be used daily by anyone who has problems with his heart or blood pressure, because it is beneficial to both. The active ingredient in cayenne pepper is capsaicin, which gives the herb its characteristic heat.
Capsaicin is extremely effective at improving blood flow even to the smallest of spaces such as the capillaries. Improved blood flow can be beneficial for a number of reasons such as for: optimal delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissue, fatty plaque elimination, decreasing blood clots, and eliminating spider veins and varicose veins. Cayenne does the impossible.
