Product Information

Native Americans have used capsicum annuum, cayenne’s botanical name, for thousands of years in their food and medicine. Cayenne is a natural stimulant that gets the blood flowing. These days, cayenne is red hot and very much in the news.

Cayenne has also been shown to support heart health, support healthy tissue function, and in maintaining a healthy weight. Capsacin, the active component in cayenne, also helps inhibit Substance P, a neuropeptide that transmits pain to the brain. Cayenne is a good source of vitamins A and C, B complex, calcium, potassium, flavonoids and carotenoids. As an added bonus, cayenne works as a catalyst, increasing the efficiency of other herbs and supplements you may be taking.

Warnings

  • Because it thins the blood, individuals on anticoagulants should avoid cayenne.
  • It is also prudent to stop taking cayenne a week to ten days before surgery since can prolong bleeding time.
  • If you are allergic to latex, bananas, kiwi, chestnuts, or avocados, you may also have an allergy to cayenne.
  • Because cayenne passes into breast milk, nursing mothers should avoid both the spice and supplement forms.
  • The capsaicin in cayenne may increase the risk of bleeding associated with aspirin and may also increase the absorption of theophylline, an asthma medication.
Factoids
  • Cayenne pepper is a popular spice in Cajun, Creole, Indian, and Southeast Asian cuisines. It’s also a key ingredient in many personal defense sprays.
  • Capsicum comes from the Greek word “to bite” and is known as “the plant that bites back”
  • Cayenne is rich in lutein and beta carotene, both of which are beneficial to eye health
