Stop a Heart Attack With Cayenne Pepper
Did you know that you could stop a heart attack within one minute by using a simple ingredient – the cayenne pepper?
In a study published in the journal Circulation, a researcher from the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Keith Jones, discovered that capsaicin, when applied to the skin of mice, caused sensory nerves in the skin to trigger signals to the nervous system, thus creating a “pro-survival” pathway to the heart.
Capsaicin caused an 85% reduction in death of heart cells, which led to Dr. Jones believing that it is a form of “remote cardioprotection,” and predicting that it can save many lives with the proper dosage and applications.
Two ways to use cayenne pepper to stop a heart attack
First and foremost, it’s important to know that in order for this to be effective, the cayenne pepper must be at least 90,000 heat units (HU) according to the Scoville scale, which measures the concentration of capsaicin.
If the person is conscious and breathing, mix 1 teaspoon of cayenne with 1 cup of warm water, making it a ‘cayenne tea’ and give it to the person to drink. However, if a person is unconscious, using cayenne extract or tincture may do the trick. Simply place a couple of drops under the person’s tongue and let the effects take place.
Cayenne pepper has been toted for its ability to help lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, discourage blood clots, and increase vasodilation. In addition, it has strong antioxidant potential due to its lignan, which helps reduce free radical damages.
