Cayenne peppers, also known as Paprika, are often used as a natural fat burner and pain killer with anti-inflammatory properties.
Cayenne may be used internally or externally to treat arthritis, bunions, psoriasis, and muscle and joint pain.
Used externally, cayenne liniment may soothe the stiffness and pain of rheumatism and arthritis. The contents of a capsule, or half a teaspoon from a jar of cayenne powder, can simply be added to some moisturiser and then massaged onto the skin. Cayenne can be made into plasters or liniment or the tincture may be applied directly, to increase blood flow to areas afflicted with rheumatism, arthritis, pleuritis or pericarditis.
Cayenne can also be taken internally both as capsules and also fresh or dried powder added to food. It can be taken as an infusion for stomach and bowel pains or cramps. Small quantities of the fresh fruit or the powder may stimulate appetite and expel worms.
