Cayenne Pepper Benefits & Information

Cayenne pepper (Capsicum annum) is native to both North and South America.  It is a well-known recipe ingredient for adding spicy heat to food.  Cayenne peppers contain capsinoid compounds which are what causes the hot burning sensation associated with cayenne peppers.  The Scoville heat index measures the amount of capsinoid compounds in the peppers.  The more capsinoid compounds in a pepper, the higher the Scoville value.  Capsaicin is the primary capsinoid in cayenne peppers.  FDA-labeled indications for capsaicin are for arthritis pain and musculoskeletal pain.

Cayenne pepper has a long history of medicinal use.  Traditionally cayenne pepper has been used to ease gout, aid with indigestion, ease fever, and soothe headache pain.  Research has found that cayenne pepper supports digestive health, promotes healthy circulation, benefits the cardiovascular system, promotes joint health, benefits skin health, may promote healthy weight, and may ease nerve pain.  It can be use both internally and topically.

Cayenne pepper can be used to make a tea, your own fresh filler-free capsules, in a compress, or in your favorite recipes and beverages.
