Did you know that a common herb (that’s probably sitting in your spice cabinet right now) has the power to stop an in-progress heart attack?
It’s true. This fiery herb – known to most as a spice – has been shown to stop a heart attack in as little as 3 minutes after taking it.
So what is this wonder herb?
Cayenne pepper (Capsicum annuum).
Medical practitioners both ancient and contemporary have touted the medicinal
properties of cayenne as well as a variety of hot peppers (including bird, chili, and Tabasco) due to their high content of capsaicin.
Capsaicin is one of seven capsaicinoid compounds present in peppers, and is the
primary compound responsible for the hot sensation of the pepper fruit, as well as its medicinal benefits.
It has long been claimed that cayenne, due to its high capsaicin content, is useful in stopping a heart attack in under three minutes, without damaging the heart muscle. A similar claim is made of capsaicin’s ability to abort an in-progress stroke.
The late pioneer herbalist Dr. John Christopher recommended a glass of cayenne tea be given every 15 minutes until the medical crisis (heart attack) passes. Alternatively, it is said that a teaspoon of cayenne tincture (Google: Christopher’s Original Formula Cayenne Exract™) every 15 minutes is equally effective.
In the September 2009 edition of the journal Circulation, Keith Jones, Ph.D. and a group of researchers from the Department of Pharmacology and Cell Biophysics at the University of Cincinnati announced findings which shed new light on capsaicin’s relationship to heart function. This information gives credence to Dr. Christopher’s anecdotal reporting, and takes capsaicin’s near-miraculous effects to the level of evidence-based medicine.
The University researchers found that an over-the-counter pain salve containing capsaicin rubbed on the skin during a heart attack is a cardio-protectant which can prevent or reduce heart damage while other interventions are administered. Dr. Jones’ team found that applying capsaicin to the stomachs of mice caused sensory nerves in the skin to trigger signals in the nervous system which activate cellular “pro-survival” pathways in the heart, reducing cardiac cell death by 85%. Apparently skin—the largest organ of the human body—has evolved to protect animals, including humans, in a variety of ways. The researchers also found that a small incision made on the abdomen triggered an 81% reduction in cell death.
Additional Healing Benefits of Cayenne Pepper…
In addition to alleviating tissue damage from a cardiac event, this miraculous herb has a wide range of other healing benefits.
In fact, cayenne is a powerful natural aid in:
Dr. Christopher recommends…
For a heart attack – 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a cup of hot water, or one teaspoon of cayenne tincture, every 15 minutes until the crisis passes.
If you currently have heart problems or know someone who does, take a few minutes and put some cayenne in a capsule or put a teaspoon or two in a small baggy and keep it in your purse or wallet; you never know whose life you may save.
