Cayenne Pepper And Turmeric

With eating healthy and stuff, everyone knows that eating fruit and vegetables is good for you, maybe even eating certain herbs, but the thing I find gets often overlooked is spices.

So let’s check out two that apparently have really great antioxidant properties.
First there is cayenne pepper, which can,

apparently stop heart attacks

give pain relief

strengthen the cardiovascular systems

remove plaque from arteries

prevent or reverse varicous veins

speed up weight loss and metabolism

help fighting the flu

and can even prevent cancer and stomach ulcers

I mean, not sure if it works for every one of those and for everybody, but wow, those are quite a lot of benefits.

Check out this video, it’s pretty cool and goes into more detail.

Now, turmeric has great anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties and has been used in the Indian Ayurvedic medicine for ages.

It might be used for,

fighting cancer

fighting inflammation

diabetes

and even Alzheimer’s

This is a bit of an ad video, but it has some good statements in it, so I thought I’d post it.

Spices last a while, so it won’t be too expensive getting the organic version and you’ll get a product that’s free from pesticides and stuff. You might as well, if you want to use it for it’s healing properties. I think it’s also interesting to do some research into the processing of herbs and spices, as they are often heated up in the process. Get fresh ones as often as possible. Fresh turmeric roots obviously, but I haven’t seen fresh cayenne peppers yet, not sure what kind that would be?

I’ve gotten quite into the cayenne pepper. It’s hot, but the organic one doesn’t seem to burn as much as the regular one. A bit like with salt, Himalaya salt or sea salt to me tastes saltier, but doesn’t burn your mouth as regular table salt does. I bought some organic turmeric powder too, not keen on the taste, but it’s mild, so I just started adding it to some of my cooked food and even sprinkle it on sandwiches and salad.

Do you know of any healing properties of herbs and spices? What’s your favourite spice? What are your favourite home remedies?

  1. Man, maybe I should be putting cayenne in EVERYTHING…??? I use it a bit, but might try to find some other reasons to now, thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Hello,
    Just wanted to remind everyone that our bodies absorb turmeric upwards of 2,000% better (yes, two-thousand%) more when it’s mixed with black pepper. ALWAYS mix black pepper with turmeric!! Happy healing!
