Fire up your metabolism with a healthy dose of this hot red pepper. Known primarily for its ability to ease pain, did you also know that the central ingredient in Swanson Cayenne can help your body metabolise food more quickly? Help burn off the excess weight with this powerful Central American spice.
From the fiercely warm and oppressive climates of South and Central America comes the equally hot and spicy red pepper, Capsicum annuum. Also known as the Guinea spice, aleva, bird pepper and cow-horn pepper, Cayenne is actually from the nightshade family (don't worry - it's not deadly!).
Most of us know Swanson Cayenne for its culinary uses. Added to all kinds of different foods spanning entire continents, it is unquestionably first and foremost a spice. It would be wrong though to suggest that its numerous health benefits are a relatively recent discovery. The Native Americans - to whom Cayenne has always been an integral part of their diets - have actually used it as both a spice and a medicine for around 9,000 years.
From the Cajuns to the Creole, Cayenne is essential in both the culinary and medicinal history of everyone from Southeast Asia to Southern Italy. The reason? Well, first off Swanson Cayenne is literally bursting with nutrients.
While it is the carotenoids in Swanson Cayenne which give it its vibrant red and orange colouration (as well as being a potent antioxidant), it is the Capsaicin which really delivers the goodness.
Hidden beneath the fiery veneer of this subtropical pepper is a secret ingredient. A secret which possesses not just the ability to increase your metabolism but also to treat pain from conditions such as osteoarthritis and has even been known to halt the growth of some tumours.
That ingredient is Capsaicin. Today, this vital element is used topically to treat pain from arthritis and shingles. While it is this ability as an analgesic that has helped put Cayenne on the map medically speaking, recent research has unearthed a brand new range of purposes for it.
Because Swanson Cayenne is a vasodilator, it can actually help with conditions like hypertension (high blood pressure). By simultaneously speeding up metabolism and clearing our blood vessels, Swanson Cayenne has begun to prove itself a remarkable aid in the battle against heart disease. The upshot of this is not just increased energy but more effective weight loss too.
