Sometimes, you want to add a bit of spice to your life. One way is to try cayenne pepper, a red, hot little spice with origins in South and Central America, the West Indies and Mexico. Dried and powdered, it produces a powerful heat that can enhance a plethora of foods – in the right amounts! But better than that, an active ingredient called capsaicin gives cayenne and other hot peppers their intensity and is also a powerful pain reliever.

Sometimes, you want to add a bit of spice to your life. One way is to try cayenne pepper, a red, hot little spice with origins in South and Central America, the West Indies and Mexico. Dried and powdered, it produces a powerful heat that can enhance a plethora of foods – in the right amounts! But better than that, an active ingredient called capsaicin gives cayenne and other hot peppers their intensity and is also a powerful pain reliever.

Health Benefits of Cayenne

Cancer Treatment Centers of America1 listed 11 foods with cancer-fighting properties, and placed cayenne pepper near the top. There are reasons for that.

A single teaspoon of cayenne pepper imparts 15 percent of the daily recommended value in vitamin A (good for fighting infection, as well as to maintain healthy mucous membranes, from your lungs to your urinary tract), and 3 percent of the vitamin E (aka alpha tocopherol). Red peppers also tend to have a higher carotenoid content – especially lycopene and astaxanthin, the latter arguably being the most powerful antioxidant in nature!

Cayenne peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C, which provides collagen synthesis to retain healthy skin, blood vessels, bones and organs, and helps boost your immunity. Vitamin K maintains healthy blood flow. Cayenne is also a good source of vitamin B6, manganese, niacin, riboflavin, magnesium and iron, as well as potassium, which helps control your heart rate and blood pressure.
