Cayenne pepper was initially mentioned on plaques in Egyptian tombs.
It has been grown for millennia in the American tropics for culinary and medicinal purposes. In 1494, the physician Diego Alvarez Chanca described cayenne for the first time. When he joined Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the West Indies, he found cayenne pepper.
Cayenne pepper is native to tropical America, but it is currently grown in tropical climates all over the globe. It is a frequent feature of the cuisine of Mexico, Italy, China, and Southeast Asia.
Although it tastes fiery, cayenne actually reduces body temperature by activating the hypothalamic cooling area. As a result, it assists the body in dealing with high temperatures in the summer or humid tropics.
Cayenne helps to boost the levels of liver enzymes that are important for fat metabolism and may aid in the reduction of fat deposits induced by a high fat diet.
Cayenne pepper contains vitamins A, C, iron, potassium, and calcium. It also contains vitamin G, B complex vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, and sulfur.
Cayenne pepper has been prized for thousands of years for its therapeutic qualities. Recent clinical investigations on several of these old-time health uses have proven cayenne’s medicinal benefits.
Cayenne is regarded as one of the most significant herbs and a powerful healer by health practitioners. It is the most important plant for first aid because of its ability to stabilize bleeding, shock, and heart attacks.
Cayenne pepper may be employed in a wide range of situations. It contains antioxidant effects, is advantageous to the cardiovascular system, is good for high and low blood pressure, and is favorable to gastrointestinal function.
Cayenne pepper has been shown to prevent heart attacks, decrease blood sugar in diabetics, regulate blood pressure, stop bleeding in seconds, enhance circulation, and even prevent the common cold.
Cayenne pepper may also be useful in treating allergies, indigestion, abscesses, tonsillitis, kidney issues, aching muscles, nose bleeds, psoriasis, shingles, night blindness, certain types of cancer, and encouraging the body to regenerate stomach tissue, according to scientific data.
Cayenne pepper is a powerful stimulant that boosts the effectiveness of other herbs. Medical research is unaware of any other stimulant that is as natural, certain, and has fewer negative effects when taken frequently.
Capsaicin is a component found in cayenne pepper that was discovered by scientists over a century ago. It contains around 12% cayenne, a molecule that induces sensory neurons to release P, a substance that functions as a pain message to the neurological system to relieve pain. Many pharmacy ointments for arthritis and muscular discomfort include the ingredient capsaicin. It may also activate antioxidant enzyme systems and stabilize lipids in the lung membrane.
All of the foregoing is true for dried raw fruit or powder. Cayenne pepper, whether cooked or uncooked, may cause major digestive system irritation and lead to ulcers.
Guy is a Red Fronted Amazon that was severely beaten by one of his cagemates. He had several bite wounds on his wings and neck, but the worst was a large open wound on his head. He’d also gone blind. This usually occurred late at night, when no vet was accessible until the next morning.
We carried him inside the home, placed him in a warm area, and I began giving him cayenne pepper water. Several veterinarians told me that most animals in such situations die of shock rather than injury. My first concern was to keep him stable. That’s why I kept offering him “cayenne water.” I checked on him throughout the night and he seemed to be stable. He regained his vision the next morning. According to the vet, the loss of vision was caused by the shock.
Guy had to have major surgery, and several stitches were used to close the wound on his head. He is totally recovered, but he is quite wary around other birds.
My previous roommate had a pair of canaries. We discovered the female resting on her back with convulsions one day. We gave her cayenne pepper water and she was back to normal in half an hour. She was then given cayenne pepper to add on her diet on a regular basis. She was doing OK until my buddy forgot to give her the cayenne pepper. She has no idea how long she was gone before she returned home to find the canary had died.
