Cayenne Pepper

 

Why Consume Cayenne Pepper?

Many people consider cayenne peppers to be the king of medicinal herbs. In fact, these peppers have been used for thousands of years to help treat many health problems. Not only do cayenne peppers have medicinal properties, but they are also great for cooking and contain several beneficial nutrients.

The active component in chili peppers that is responsible for all the wonderful health benefits it produces in the human body is called capsaicin.  Capsaicin is capable of increasing the sensation of fullness in energy balance and decreasing the desire to eat after dinner in a negative energy balance.  That’s fancy talk for, helps you lose weight!  Capsaicin helps your body burn off the calories you consume, and it helps you not to consume them in the first place by dampening down the hormone responsible for making you feel hungry!  Now, how great is that?

Boosts metabolism through thermogenesis

Essentially, it helps you burn more calories. It does this through a process called diet-induced thermogenesis, which causes an increase in your metabolism.

 Reduces hunger by reducing the hunger hormone ghrelin

 Gremlin… er, I mean ghrelin, is that nasty hormone your body produces that lets your brain know that it needs to eat.  This is a great way for us humans to avoid forgetting to eat and perhaps was great when we were cave people on the hunt for food, but these days, forgetting to eat is really not a problem for most people.  It’s when this hormone gets overzealous that makes us have a hard time not going back for seconds.  If you can reduce the amount of this hormone that your body makes, you will have more control over how much you eat.

 Capsaicin Counters Obesity

Capsaicin induces browning of white adipose tissue and counters obesity by activating TRPV1 channel-dependent mechanisms.  Hmm… Fat… It’s all bad, right? Wrong!  Brown fat is essential for your body to be in good health and… it actually burns off white fat!  The idea is to turn your white fat (Bad) into brown fat (Good)!  Want to know more?  ‘Fat is colorful? Who knew?’!

Brown fat is now thought to be more like muscle than white fat. When activated, brown fat burns white fat. Although leaner adults have more brown fat than heavier people, even their brown fat cells are greatly outnumbered by white fat cells. Jul 13, 2009

 A study in the Journal of Immunology states,

“Red chili peppers (Capsicum frutescens) have been used for several thousand years as food additives and for a broad variety of medical applications in Indian, Native American, African, and Chinese medical traditions (1, 2). Red peppers have been claimed to: enhance immune response (and thereby prevent infections), act in an anti-inflammatory manner (and thereby prevent atherosclerosis and reduce risk of heart disease), lower blood pressure, reduce excessive blood clotting, reduce blood sugar levels.”

Um, yes, please!  These health benefits make Cayenne Peppers the absolute perfect addition to the already powerful effects of the Apple Cider Vinegar in our Product. This is basically a “No Brainer”.  Read the study for yourself:

Did you know, "Activation of TRPV1 by dietary capsaicin improves endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation and prevents hypertension"?

Capsaicin Protects Cardiometabolic Organs from Dysfunction

    “Experimental studies demonstrated that activation of TRPV1 by capsaicin could ameliorate obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. Additionally, TRPV1 activation preserved the function of cardiometabolic organs. Furthermore, population studies also confirmed the beneficial effects of capsaicin on human health. The habitual consumption of spicy foods was inversely associated with both total and certain causes of specific mortality after adjustment for other known or potential risk factors. The enjoyment of spicy flavors in food was associated with a lower prevalence of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. These results suggest that capsaicin and TRPV1 may be potential targets for the management of cardiometabolic vascular diseases and their related target organs dysfunction.”

     After researching extensively about all the amazingly wonderful things Cayenne Peppers do for the human body, it was obvious to me that we needed to include it in our Apple Cider Vinegar+ supplement!  If you are interested in learning more about what Cayenne Peppers, capsaicin, can do to improve your health, we have listed some more links to studies done on this amazing compound!  Happy reading!
