What is Cayenne?
Cayenne by Now Foods is a supplement in capsules made from cayenne pepper extract (Capsicum frutescens).
Cayenne is a plant from the solanaceae family with different properties, although its main one is its thermogenic effect which has been used in traditional medicine and for cooking. This ingredient is native to the tropical regions of the American continent and it is also known as red pepper.
Its fruit or spice is spicy and it can trigger temporary hypoesthesia or paresthesia on the tongue (less sensitivity or tingling). Its use as seasoning for food spread across Europe due to the expeditions that came back from America, which would be followed by black pepper afterwards.
Nowadays, it has become one of the most popular natural remedies, its vitamin content (mainly A, E and C) and its iron supply are one of the reasons why it has become so popular.
