Many are unaware of just how powerful this one ingredient can be. Considering that heart attacks are the leading cause of deaths in America, adding this one simple ingredient to your cabinet could mean the difference between life and death.
About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year- that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. Currently, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Each year about 735,000 Americans has a heart attack. Of these, 525,000 are a first heart attack and 210,000 happen in people who have already had a heart attack previously. Clearly, heart disease is a terrifying disease. It can either end your life or provide you a second chance. Dr. Christopher claimed that in his 35 years of practice he has never lost a patient due to a heart attack. So what’s his secret? A special recipe including cayenne pepper.
Cayenne Pepper is a herb that is made from the dried pods of chili peppers. Aside from being very popular in cooking, cayenne has also had medicinal praise for thousands of years. Containing high amounts of Vitamins, A, C, B complex, calcium and potassium, cayenne can be a wonderful healing tool for the heart and circulatory system. Perhaps one of its most amazing traits is that it has been used successful time and time again to stop heart attacks in their tracks.
You can give the person having a heart attack a mixture or tea made out of one teaspoon of cayenne pepper combined with one cup of water. Only give the person 5-10 drops of the tea. If the condition does not improve after 5 minutes, give 5-10 more. This only works if they are conscious. If unconscious, you can use cayenne pepper extract by applying a few drops under the patient’s tongue for results.
Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin, which according to scientific research can stop a heart attack in progress when applied topically around the area of the heart. The researchers discovered that an astounding 85% reduction in cardiac cell death occurred when using capsaicin. So why does this work? Capsaicin causes sensory nerves in the skin to be triggered to activate what the scientists call cellular “pro-survival” pathways in the heart. The result? The heart muscle was protected from injury.
Cayenne peppers promote heart rate and also aid in carrying blood to the most crucial body parts, restoring circulation. This means that it aids in a very fast recovery, making cayenne pepper a holistic wonder drug for anyone who suffers from heart disease and is at risk of a heart attack.
