Cayenne Hawthorn warms the cockles of your heart
500 years ago Christopher Columbus noted that “natives of the New World have a habit of eating hot chilli peppers with almost all foods”. This may have been because of cayenne's ability to stimulate digestion and healing; however, cayenne is also deemed most beneficial for cooler climates of the “Old World”, due to its powerful circulatory stimulant action.
This warming herb improves blood flow through body tissue, permeating warmth and vitality even to the extremities, making it the perfect remedy for chill-blains and cold hands and feet. Combining cayenne with the “heart” herb Hawthorn creates an all encompassing cardiovascular tonic, which may help regulate body temperature, blood pressure and cardiac contraction
