Health Notes

Cayenne

Cayenne
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Pain
Dose: Apply 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin ointment four times per day over painful areas

Capsaicin is an extract of cayenne pepper that may ease many types of chronic pain when applied regularly to the skin. In animal studies, capsaicin was consistently effective at reducing pain when given by mouth, by injection, or when applied topically.1, 2 A controlled trial in humans found that application of a solution of capsaicin (0.075%) decreased sensitivity of skin to all noxious stimuli.3 One review article deemed the research on capsaicin's pain-relieving properties "inconclusive."4 However, in several uncontrolled and at least five controlled clinical trials, capsaicin has been consistently shown to decrease the pain of many disorders, including trigeminal neuralgia, shingles, diabetic neuropathy, osteoarthritis, and cluster headaches.5, 6, 7, 8, 9 For treatment of chronic pain, capsaicin ointment or cream (standardized to 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin) is typically applied to the painful area four times per day.10 It is common to experience stinging and burning at the site of application, especially for the first week of treatment; avoid getting it in the eyes, mouth, or open sores.

Cluster Headache
Dose: Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner

Substance P is a nerve chemical involved in pain transmission that may cause some of the symptoms of cluster headache.1, 2 Capsaicin, a constituent of cayenne pepper, can reduce the levels of substance P in nerves.3 Preliminary clinical trials investigating the use of intranasal capsaicin for the prevention and treatment of cluster headaches report significant decreases in the number of cluster episodes in some of the participants.4 The decreases usually lasted no more than 40 days after the end of treatment,5 although a few patients have experienced relief for up to two years.6 In a double-blind study, patients who received capsaicin intranasally twice daily for seven days during a cluster episode had a significant reduction in pain for the following 15 days.7 As capsaicin can cause burning and irritation, this treatment should be utilized only under the supervision of a qualified doctor.

Low Back Pain
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Topical cayenne pepper has been used for centuries to reduce pain, and more recently, to diminish localized pain for a number of conditions,1 including chronic pain,2 although low back pain has not been specifically investigated. Cayenne creams typically contain 0.025-0.075% capsaicin.3 While cayenne cream causes a burning sensation the first few times used, this decreases with each application. Pain relief is also enhanced with use as substance P, the compound that induces pain, is depleted.4 To avoid contamination of the mouth, nose, or eyes, hands should be thoroughly washed after use or gloves should be worn. Do not apply cayenne cream to broken skin.

Migraine Headache
Dose: Refer to label instructions

There is preliminary evidence that capsaicin, the active constituent of cayenne, can be applied inside the nose as a treatment for acute migraine.1 However, as intranasal application of capsaicin produces a burning sensation, it should be used only under the supervision of a doctor familiar with its use.

Osteoarthritis
Dose: Apply 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin ointment four times per day over painful jointsSeveral double-blind trials have shown that topical use of cayenne extract creams containing 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin reduces pain and tenderness caused by osteoarthritis.1, 2, 3, 4 These creams are typically applied four times daily for two to four weeks, after which twice daily application may be sufficient.5 Products containing capsicum oleoresin rather than purified capsaicin may not be as effective.6

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Dose: Apply 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin ointment four times per day over painful areas

A cream containing small amounts of capsaicin, a substance found in cayenne pepper, can help relieve pain when rubbed onto arthritic joints, according to the results of a double-blind trial.1 Capsaicin achieves this effect by depleting nerves of a pain-mediating neurotransmitter called substance P. Although application of capsaicin cream initially causes a burning feeling, the burning lessens with each application and disappears for most people in a few days. Creams containing 0.025-0.075% of capsaicin are available and may be applied to the affected joints three to five times a day. A doctor should supervise this treatment.

Bursitis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

While there have been few studies on herbal therapy for bursitis, most practitioners would consider using anti-inflammatory herbs that have proven useful in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. These would include boswellia, turmeric, willow, and topical cayenne ointment.

Psoriasis
Dose: Apply 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin ointment four times per day over pain areas with unbroken skin

Cayenne contains a resinous and pungent substance known as capsaicin. This chemical relieves pain and itching by depleting certain neurotransmitters from sensory nerves. In a double-blind trial, application of a capsaicin cream to the skin relieved both the itching and the skin lesions in people with psoriasis.1 Creams containing 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin are generally used. There may be a burning sensation the first several times the cream is applied, but this usually become less pronounced with each use. The hands must be carefully and thoroughly washed after use, or gloves should be worn, to prevent the cream from accidentally reaching the eyes, nose, or mouth and causing a burning sensation. The cream should not be applied to areas of broken skin.

Anal Itching
Dose: An ointment containing 0.006% capsaicin, thinly applied three daily for 4 weeksIn a double-blind trial, topical application of capsaicin (a component of cayenne) relieved chronic anal itching in 70% of patients. The preparation used was an ointment containing 0.006% capsaicin, which was made by diluting a commercially available capsaicin product with white soft paraffin. The preparation was applied in a very thin layer to the area around the anus three times per day for four weeks. All patients experienced some burning around the anus after each application; this decreased significantly after four weeks of application, but did not disappear completely. Some patients needed to continue applying capsaicin occasionally after the first four weeks to prevent the itching from recurring.1

Obesity
Dose: Add 6 to 10 grams to each mealResearch has suggested that incorporating cayenne pepper into the diet may help people lose weight. Controlled studies report that adding 6 to 10 grams of cayenne to a meal or 28 grams to an entire day's diet reduces hunger after meals and reduces calories consumed during subsequent meals.1, 2 Other controlled studies have reported that calorie burning by the body increases slightly when 10 grams of cayenne is added to a meal or 28 grams is added to an entire day's diet 3, 4, 5 However, no studies have been done to see if regularly adding cayenne to the diet has any effect on weight loss.

Here are my stats: 1)running on treadmill from 5-6mph to 8-9mph. 2)went from having severe stomach pains to no pain at all. 3)went from sweating like a beast to sweating mildly during a 30 min. wk. out. I take it with honey,lemon juice and water. Trust me. it works!

          Cayenne has the added benefit's of a well known prescription drug used by many to treat high blood pressure. I have been taken cayenne for the last few months for my high blood pressure, and can attest that my blood pressure is better then it's ever been. Try Cayenne, you won't regret it.
