NOW Cayenne 500mg 100 Veg Caps

What is Cayenne?

Cayenne pepper (Capsicum frutescens) has been used as a food and by traditional herbalists for thousands of years. The hot and spicy taste of cayenne pepper is primarily due to a component known as capsaicin. Modern scientific studies have indicated that consumption of Cayenne may help to support cardiovascular and digestive functions


  • Supports Healthy Digestion
  • Supports Blood Vessels
  • Helps improve circulation
  • May help support healthy cholesterol levels
  • Supports pain relief


Cayenne and other Capsicum species contain 1-2% naturally occurring phenolic alkaloids by dry weight, collectively known as capsaicinoids. Capsaicin, dihydrocapsaicin and nordihydrocapsaicin comprise approximately 95% of the total level of capsaicinoids.

Cayenne pepper’s benefits are numerous; helps promote digestion via influencing the flow of digestive secretions, helps improve circulation, lower cholesterol and blood fat levels. Promotes perspiration – a natural cooling mechanism of the body.

Capsaicin affects physiological pathways involved in the perception of temperature and pain by interacting with sensory neurons. Capsaicin first activates the pain receptors, but upon repeated application to the skin it desensitizes these receptors and temporarily relieves the pain. Research also indicates Cayenne may be an effective remedy for headaches. The pepper also contains Vitamin C, E, B6, potassium, providing antioxidant properties.
