So, what is cayenne pepper? You probably recognize its name as a potent condiment often used in cooking, but its value lies well beyond its culinary uses. Cayenne pepper is an herb that is nothing short of amazing.

Cayenne is a stimulant herb that is also known, although obliquely so, as African red pepper, American red pepper, Spanish pepper, capsicum, and bird pepper. The plant from which cayenne pepper is derived is from two related plants actually.

Specifically, the American variety (Capsicum minimum) is distinguished from its African countepart the African birdseye cayenne (Capsicum fastigiatum) although both are highly beneficial to man (another good version is (Capsicum annuum). The African birdseye cayenne pepper is the most pungent with small, yellowish red pods while the American variety is distinguished with its herb-sized plants and larger fruit or pods.

The food value of cayenne pepper is known, of course, but its real value is as a medicinal and nutritional herb. Its medical uses include using it for wounds, heart disease, heart attacks, heart problems at large, ulcers, congestion, colds, chills, bleeding of the lungs, neuralgia, lumbago, hemorrhage, hemorrhoids, high and low blood pressure, indigestion, kidney and related problems, etc., etc. This is by no means a comprehensive list.

Cayenne pepper is a stimulant and as such is an activator, carrier, and accentuator to other herbs as well. It can and should, however, be used by itself. Let’s discuss some of those ancillary uses now before we talk in depth about cayenne pepper and heart health.

If you are concerned about your heart health, or if you are suffering from heart ailments, cayenne pepper should be a daily staple in your diet. This remarkable herb is a wonder and can tremendously benefit your health. Cayenne pepper is one of the greatest health secrets in the world. In fact, the Hunzas of Asia Minor have lived for centuries on a diet of apricots and cayenne pepper, often living to the age of 150.

Cayenne certainly is a great condiment, used with panache by great cooks and chefs, but its true value lies in its medicinal qualities. Slowly and surely, its remarkable benefits are gaining awareness by a public becoming increasingly disenchanted by traditional medicine's non-causal approach. Perhaps now you see why cayenne is a prince among herbs.

If you are interested in picking up organically certified cayenne pepper, you can get it from a recommended company, which company has a certified quality assurance organic facility rating. This is important.

Maple Syrup is as an excellent source of the trace mineral manganese and of zinc. Zinc and manganese are good for your immune system, but that's not all.

Let's talk about manganese first. Manganese is an important co-factor with a number of enzymes that are important to antioxidant defenses. One medical website I came across said that there is one vital oxidative enzyme called superoxide dismutase that disarms free radicals (radicals cause aging and cell degradation in general).

It is powerful in disarming free radicals in the mitochondria, the boiler room, energy plant within the cells. This enzyme superoxide dismutase requires the cofactor manganese.

Furthermore, manganese is believed to play a vital role in your health as it a catalyst in the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol.

What about zinc? The zinc in maple syrup is an antioxidant or acts as one and limit endothelial damage caused by bad LDL cholesterol. The endothelial is the inner lining of blood vessels.

Zinc is vital to the immune system. It's important to have zinc as it supports the health function and existence of T lymphocytes, B cells and macrophages, which are types of white blood cells necesary for immunological defense. Manganese may also act as an immunostimulant.

Maple syrup is also believed to help support reproductive health and has many especially important health benefits for men. Zinc is concentrated in the prostate gland than in any other human tissue. It has been scientifically proven that low levels of zinc in this all-important male gland correspond to a higher risk for prostate cancer. Zinc also participates in the production of sex hormones.

A nice, ancillary benefit of maple syrup is that it is sweet to the taste. Not many things sweet to the taste are good for you. Two teaspoons of maple syrup equal only 34 calories as well.
