One Hot Momma! The Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper Cayenne pepper is also known as red pepper or capsicum, has a rather wide range of potential health benefits. Used externally and internally, cayenne pepper is not expensive and is easily available.

Here are some of the purported health benefits of this colorful spice:

1. Arthritis

It seems ironic that a spice that causes pain on the tongue can actually help pain in the body. But capsaicin, a chemical in cayenne that accounts for its “hotness,” relieves pain by stimulating the body’s own pain-relieving mechanism – namely, endorphins. Cayenne also contains pain-relieving compounds called salicylates. (Aspirin contains a form of salicylate called acetylsalicylic acid.)

You can take cayenne internally in capsules or add it to foods and drinks (try tomato juice). Using cayenne on the skin at the site of pain is also effective – research has clearly shown that capsaicin creams relieve pain when applied to arthritic joints. It apparently dulls local pain receptors, and it also increases blood flow to the area.

2. Ulcer prevention
