Cayenne peppers are a popular spice used in many different regional styles of cooking, and they have been used medicinally for thousands of years due to Capsaicin, the compound in cayenne that gives the fruit its fiery taste.

These peppers boast an impressive nutrition profile, which includes a variety of antioxidants that are beneficial for your health.

Cayenne Pepper relieves pain; Capsaicin features potent pain relieving qualities when applied to the skin. It can effectively alleviate pain in sore muscles and painful joints.

Capsaicin present in cayenne pepper possesses properties that helps increase your metabolism. 

Cayenne pepper is a good source of beta-carotene and antioxidants including vitamin C that strengthen your immune system.

Hot chilies such as the cayenne pepper can help lower blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and inhibit the formation of blood clots.

The cayenne pepper is an anti-inflammatory agent. It has the ability to prevent allergies as well as its related symptoms, by reducing histamine response to allergens.

Cayenne is abundant in vitamins such as vitamin A and vitamin E. Vitamin A plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy eyesight and neurological functions, while vitamin E enhances skin quality, strengthens hair, and regulates hormones.

A wonderful addition to your diet, I particularly like to add some fresh cayenne peppers to my olive oil bottles for some chili oil!
