The pepper in itself contains a lot of vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, organic calcium potassium, carotenoids, and dietary fiber, making it a food with high medicinal value. Furthermore, cayenne peppers contain a lot of Vitamin A or beta-carotene that helps develop healthy mucus membranes to protect the body against attacking pathogens and to immune it against infections.

Cayenne pepper can remove blood blotches that sick body parts often induce. What it does is it stimulates the blood flow to make sure all wastes are properly removed and that all the important vitamins are delivered to the right areas of the body.
