Cayenne Pepper and the Health of Your Heart
A cayenne pepper supplement, taken in capsule form, can help maintain the health, not only of your heart, but of your entire cardiovascular system. Its properties as a powerful antioxidant mean that it can prevent oxidation of the LDL (low density lipids) in your blood. These LDLs carry cholesterol through your arteries from your liver to the glands that need it to manufacture sex hormones, and back again through your veins in the form of HDL (high density lipids).
When free radicals oxidize LDL, it falls out of your blood onto the walls of your arteries, forming plaques of cholesterol that build up over time. These plaques rarely completely block your arteries, because along comes a small blood clot, normally innocuous, but when it hits this road block, it gets stuck and so does the flow of your blood.
Without adequate oxygen your heart muscle stops working or your brain cells die, depending on where the artery is; result: heart failure or stroke! Cayenne can stop this happening by preventing that oxidation - no free radicals and no oxidation!
Cayenne can also help to reduce blood pressure by making your blood vessels more supple - so they can expand more and so your heart need not press so hard to pass the blood through inflexible pipes. It can also help to reduce your LDL cholesterol levels, so less is available for oxidation.
Cayenne is good for your heart in general, and when added to all the other health benefits it offers, cayenne supplement is a no-brainer for anybody seeking a way to stay healthy and live longer.
