Where does cayenne come from? The fruit or body of the peppers are dried then ground down, pulped and baked into cakes, which are then sifted to make the spice known as cayenne pepper.
Cayenne pepper has been used for centuries as a medicinal and culinary herb and undoubtedly most just think of them as "those hot red peppers" to be used for spicing up food or to be used primarily in cooking ethnic cuisine, but it is so much more.
Much scientific research has been initiated to validate what naturopathic practitioners have known for years: It can stop heart attacks, nourish the heart with vital nutrients, remove plaque from the arteries, help rebuild flesh destroyed or harmed by frostbite, heal hemorrhoids, re-build stomach tissue, heal stomach ulcers, fortify your overall health, and mitigate the most wrenching of diseases.
It improves circulation, rebuilds blood cells, lowers cholesterol, emulsifies triglycerides, removes toxins from the bloodstream and improves overall heart health. It's even a great insect repellent.
As mentioned, it can also heal ulcers, which seems contradictory considering its native calidity or heat. It immediately equalizes blood pressure in your system, shrinks hemorrhoids, and heals the gall bladder too.
It can be used as a diuretic as well helping in elimination both with urine and with built-up fecal matter in the intestines. It has wonderful, scientifically-proven antifungal properties as well.

Our familys favourite spice, this stuff gets used on everything - we especially love it on baked potato skins. You just can compare the taste to the usual spice brands. The flavour is incredible. Top tip - a pinch of this in your cocoa is a great winter warmer.

Cayenne is part of my daily routine. Try a level teaspoon in hot water with some veggie stock to lift a sinus headache. This is a particularly tasty cayenne. Permanently on my shopping list.

Absolutely, without a doubt my new favourite spice. And I put it on everything from fried eggs, to popcorn, to roast potatoes. It lasts forever too and the taste is incomparable with the average shop bought version: so much better!
