Cayenne pepper is a very healing plant and its benefits still remain unexplored. One of its benefits that was recently proven was that it can stop a heart attack in a minute. This is a spice you should make sure to always have in your cabinet. You never know when you might need it.
Dr. Christopher, an American herbalist, has never lost a patient to a heart attack in his 35-year career. His trick is to always give a cup of cayenne pepper tea (a teaspoon to a cup of water) to his patients suffering from heart attack but still conscious. SO this theory is proven to work in real time conditions and not scientific studies in controlled conditions. This makes it even more trustworthy.
Cayenne pepper helps with heart attack because it has at least 90,000 Scoville units, according to the Scoville Heat Units (SHU). This also includes Habanero, Thai Chi, African Bird, Jalapeño, Jamaican Hot Pepper, and Scotch Bonet. A combination of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a glass of water can be given to patients who have had a heart attack, but are still conscious and breathing.
If the person is unconscious, put a few drops of cayenne pepper extract under the patient’s tongue.
This will increase the heart rate and carries blood to all parts of the body, thus balancing circulation. It has hemostatic effect, stops bleeding, and helps in heart recovery.
It is the best first aid to work in emergency cases. Just remember to use cayenne pepper and not hot pepper.
