Herbal cayenne processed a significant amount of bioactive compound Capsicum may have a positive and profound effect on normalizing the levels of blood pressure, according to studies.
Hypertension is a medical condition of abnormally high blood pressure, one of the members of the cluster of conditions associated with heart disease and stroke.
Depending on the reading, some researchers suggested if you are in stage one of high blood pressure, your risk of cardiovascular disease is increased by 10% over the next 10 years.
According to the statistics, in the US, approximately 75 million people or 1 of 3 U.S. adults has high blood pressure. High blood pressure can be modified by change of lifestyle.
However, not all people with some of the above conditions will develop high blood pressure.
Cayenne is also known as Cayenne Pepper, a red, hot chili pepper, belonging to Capsicum annuum, the family Solanaceae, native to sub-tropical and tropical regions.
The pepper has been used in traditional medicine to increases metabolism, enhance circulatory system and stomach and the intestinal tract, adjust blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, treat frostbite, muscles, arthritis, rheumatism, low back pain, strains, sprains, bruises, and neuralgia, etc.
The chemical constituents of Cayenne include capsaicin, capsacutin oil, solaine, xanthenes, oleic acid, palmitic acid, etc.
Epidemiological studies linking cayenne in reducing hypertension have not been conclusive, the mechanism of this effect is still an mystery.
Researchers on finding a herbal medicine for the treatment of hypertension with no side effects examined the traditionally used medicinal plants against key enzymes relevant for hyperglycemia and hypertension.
However, in pig study, application capsaicin isolated from the cayenne showed a significantly increased mean arterial blood pressure compared with controls, and a decrease in CGRP synthesis and release contributes to the elevated blood pressure.
Also, there are 2 cases reported of an arterial hypertensive crisis in a patient with large ingestion of peppers and chili peppers the day before and a 19-year-old Italian man with abundant ingestion of peppers and of chili peppers the preceding day.
The findings strongly suggested cayenne processed an antihypertensive and hypertensive effect in a dose-dependent manner.
This dual mechanisms presented in cayenne may not be explained by conventional medicine. However, traditional Chinese medicine stated cayenne, yang in nature, promotes Qi movement of blood. In a healthy individual, smooth movement of qi reduces the unnecessary blood pressure in blood transportation. On the other hand, if the movement of qi is blocked due to the presence of a high amount of cholesterol that narrows the blood vessel, in inducing higher blood pressure.
The traditional Chinese medicine continued, injection of a high amount of cayenne pepper can cause constriction of blood vessels, leading to narrowing blood flow and risk of hypertension
