Cayenne Pepper for Circulation - How Does It Work?

Cayenne pepper has a potent effect on the nerves in the mouth. Upon stimulating the nerves, blood vessels relax (dilate) to allow blood to flow more freely.

Some physicians claim that cayenne pepper can be used during a heart attack to increase survival rates and prevent future heart attack.

They speculate that it works by dilating the blood vessels supplying nutrients and oxygen to the heart muscle. This will prevent further damage.

As well, some herbalists suggest that cayenne pepper can reverse heart disease and unclog blocked arteries.

Human studies to prove this particular benefit of cayenne pepper is still pending.

Nevertheless, cayenne pepper is definitely an herb worth taking to improve circulation, not only to the hands and feet but also to the entire body.

The good news is that you can easily get all the health benefits of cayenne pepper by including it in your cooking.
