Could you have the key to destroying cancer cells hidden away in the back of your spice rack? You most likely do!
The cayenne pepper has been used for many yeas now as a spice and is in my opinion, one of the most valuable medicinal herbs in the world. Cayenne is high in quite a few different important vitamins as well as calcium and potassium. It can work to rebuild tissue in the stomach and even increase the effectiveness of other herbs.
When it comes to cayenne pepper and cancer there is some science behind it. As you may know, the active ingredient in cayenne is known as capsaicin. Back in 2004, Dr. Sanjay K. Srivastava and his colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine treated pancreatic cells with this. They found that it worked effectively to disrupt the mitochondrial function and induce apoptosis in cancerous cells. Doing this without affecting the normal cells!
On top of having cancer healing benefits cayenne can do all sorts of things like:
- Stop heart attacks
- Reduce appetite
- Sterilize wounds
- Stop bleeding from wounds
As well as so many other things. For more information on the benefits of cayenne please take the time to watch the video below.
