This One Spice Stops Heart Attacks, Restores Gut Bacteria, And Kills Cancer Cells!
What if we were to tell you that there is one commonly used spice that could help you lose weight, rebuild the gut wall, destroy cancer cells, and even stop heart attacks? You would probably shake your head and think that this couldn’t possibly be true … But it is!
The fruit from cayenne plants has been used as not only a spice, but as a medicinal food for centuries! Yes, it’s some pretty hot stuff, but you don’t have to eat a great deal of it to get plenty of health benefits.
Cayenne peppers are high in calcium, potassium, B-complex vitamins, as well as vitamins A and C. Studies have found that this hot pepper can actually rebuild the tissue in the stomach and intestines, improving digestion. Cayenne works like a catalyst and makes alternative cancer treatments, as well as other herbs, more effective.
If you have ever enjoyed some salsa or guacamole with cayenne pepper, then felt your nose start to run and were surprised to see that you were sweating, this is cayenne pepper in action! It warms the body and opens the sinuses, allowing mucus to flow freely, relieving congestion.
Cayenne pepper stimulates circulation and brings more blood to the skin surface. All herbs that encourage sweating and fever help relieve congestion, sinusitis, and reduce fevers.
The University of Pittsburg School of Medicine conducted studies which found that the active ingredient in these hot peppers, capsaicin, actually killed cancerous cells in the pancreas. This study was published in April 2005 in the journal Innovations Report.

Another study, conducted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the UCLA School of Medicine and published in Reuters in March of 2006 found that capsaicin had a powerful impact on human prostate cancer cells in vitro. This study found that capsaicin caused the death of 80 percent of prostate cancer cells.
Studies in Japan have also shown that cayenne pepper slowed the development of cancerous tumors of the prostate.
As if all this anti-cancer power weren’t enough, studies have shown that cayenne can help people fight the battle of the bulge. One study found that subjects who consumed 10 grams of cayenne pepper with their meals not only reduced appetite but also increased the metabolism of dietary fats.
Cayenne pepper is also very nourishing to the heart and has been known to even stop heart attacks! This is why every home should have some cayenne tincture in their first aid kit in case of heart attack. Dr. John R. Christopher claims that one teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water, commonly called cayenne pepper tea, will stop heart attacks and improve recovery in a matter of minutes.
Traditionally, herbalists would pour cayenne pepper juice directly into wounds to both sterilize them and stop bleeding instantly. Yes, we imagine this would cause some pain for a few seconds, but capsaicin has powerful pain killing agents as well, so it would relieve pain shortly after applying.
You can also use this same cayenne tea to kill a wide variety of parasites in your body. Most people refuse to believe that they could possibly have parasites, and most believe that this is something that occurs in other countries, but did you know that emergency rooms get several cases of parasitic infestation every single day, all over the country? It’s true! Add a cup of cayenne pepper tea to your diet once a month to kill and remove parasites from your body.
Cayenne pepper is a terrific way to prevent cancer, improve your heart health, improve digestive health, and kill parasites! What more could you ask for from one simple spice?
