Cayenne for High Blood Pressure
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Cayenne Pepper - 1 Teaspoon
Cayenne pepper pills are available, but simply adding a teaspoon of cayenne to your daily meals can significantly reduce blood pressure almost immediately. Try adding it to hot water for an invigorating beverage!
[YEA] 11/01/2011: Marthas from Zeerust, North West South Africa: "It has been a week since I've been using cayenne pepper and also a hypertensive, I must say that the health benefits are out of this world. I take half teaspoon with a quarter coldwater every morning with no side effects. Thanx to all tips about cayenne pepper."
[YEA] 06/13/2009: Maria from San Francisco, CA: "i was wondering about the virgin coconut oil...it was mentioned that it is not recommended for people with high blood pressure, and i was wondering if that applies to the oil applied externally as well as internally? (as in the rubbing of the feet and calves before bed)... because i do not have high blood pressure but my boyfriend does, or used to at least...we have had some success with cayenne pepper (1 tblspn twice a day)...btw he is less prone to lose his temper because i think your temperament and patience is affected by the blood pressure (and vice versa)... so my other question is if you know that your blood pressure is now lowered from taking the cayenne (its been about a month now), must one continue taking it indefinitely? also we have been making kombucha at home and we notice less desire for caffine and more energy, better skin...
we would recommend using silver needle white tea, as the taste is great combined with the kombucha, champagne-like, and it has the more anti-oxidants than black or green tea. thanks, Maria"Replies
06/13/2009: Maria from San Francisco, CA replies: "this is an amendment to an earlier post i wrote about cayenne pepper lowering my boyfriend's blood pressure. i wrote that he took 2 tblspns a day but i was wrong- he actually takes 1 tsp. a day, spilt up into 1/2 tspn twice a day. the way he does it is by wrapping it in a little tissue paper and swallowing it, and then drinking or eating something that coats the stomach, like milk (before or after...you start to build up more of a tolerance for it after awhile. we were going to buy the gelatin capsules but they seemed sort of expensive.
also while i was at it i wanted to mention that honey (raw is best i think) works well for mosquito bites, cuts, and skin irritations, like skin tabs on the edges of your nails, just put a little bit directly on the skin and its stops the itch and helps it heal faster. i think it also helps for wounds, though doesn't stop the bleedinng like cayenne. thanks and sorry about the mistake earlier!"
01/25/2010: Trea from Shirley, New York, Usa replies: "Need some help please. My husband has extremely high blood pressure. He was hospitalized for it more than 6 times in 2008 and about 4 times in 2009. We changed his diet a couple of years ago so he is eating much healthier and he dropped 25 lbs. His medication has been switched so many times over the past few years that he has probably been given almost every type of BP medication out there. He has also been on diuretics but they had to be stopped because they were draining his system of potassium and water too much and he would cramp up in his legs and arms.
He is 6'3" weighs 225 and his BP is generally 160/100 on his medication. When he goes through periods of skipping medication because he's fed up with it his pressure goes even higher. We have tried the ACV 2 tbsp with 12 oz water twice a day and it is not working for him. His high blood pressure is hereditary both of his parents had it. It also has to do with salt because whenever he's not home and eats something processed which usually has high sodium content his pressure goes even higher. I don't believe salt is the only problem though otherwise when we changed his diet it should have helped more. He eats plenty of salads eats mostly chicken or fish. Drinks plenty of water. He is lactose intolerant so we use rice milk. He loves vegetables raw and steamed.
I am going to try the Cayenne Pepper but I have a question. Can you use the Cayenne Pepper seasoning that you buy in the supermarket in the baking aisle or does it have to be fresh? My supermarket does not have fresh cayenne pepper. Are the capsules better or does it make a difference? If anyone has anything else that they think might help, I'm open to suggestions."
04/29/2011: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "I use the cheap cayenne from the spice isle and the effects are efficacious.. But with regards to high blood pressure... Seven cloves of garlic the first night six the second and so on down till two if you maintain at two cloves, the blood pressure should be normal along with the other health benifits this herb gives.. Sprinkle the chopped herb over food.. Take parsley for garlic breath!"
[YEA] 01/28/2009: Cathy from Squamish, B.C. Canada: "I have been taking medication for high blood pressure for years. I am on 2 differnt types's of medication, one i call the pee pill and the other is for the high blood pressure, any way's they are both double doses. I recently discovered cayenne pepper, ive been taking it for a month now. I sprinkle it on everything, and i can't believe how great i feel. Not only is it great for cleaning out the bowel's, and reducing bloating, but i can't believe how much my blood pressure has reduced. I take my blood pressure reading's quite regularly. Could this possibly be a cure for high blood pressure, because i would love to take cayenne over the medication? Thanx Cathy"
[YEA] 06/10/2008: Gabi from Toronto, Canada: "When I red about cayenne at Earth Clinic first time I run to the kitchen to try it. I had wonderful experience! It was almost nirvana like. I was rested and full of energy. Since then I take it usually before bed time. I wake up in the morning without awful bags under my eyes and my feet aren't swollen at all. I told about cayenne paper one of my clients who is over 2 years on chemotherapy. She decided to try it. Most difficult for that lady are mornings (blood pressure is about 50/80!). Guess what happened? After 20 min we checked and her blood pressure was 127/73! We didn't check again but for the next couple hrs which are usually most difficult to get through during the day, she was OK! I got this idea from information to use cayenne paper as a first aid in a case of heart attack. Thank you Earth Clinic. If it didn't save a life it made it possible to live!"
[YEA] 01/28/2008: george from naples, florida: "BAKING SODA NASAL RINSE I used baking soda and warm water and have not had a sinus problems in two months also used cayenne pepper to lower my blood pressure."
[YEA] 11/04/2007: boyd from manchester, newhampshire: "i had high blood pressure 165 over 100 i started taking the cayenne pepper pills from gnc 6 pills a day and the same day after taking the pills my blood pressure was 130 over 74 and now after 2 months of taking 2 cayenne pepper pills a day and 1 hawthron pill a day my blood pressure stays 130 over 71 hawthron and cayenne works both are pills at gnc"
[YEA] 08/14/2007: Jennifer from Windsor, California: "Hi Karen, My mother occasionally experiences the same heartburn discomfort after taking ACV. She can't take it on an empty stomach and has to sip it slowly. She does take it every morning after breakfast diluted in 16 oz of filtered water. In regards to lowering blood pressure, she's had wonderful success with cayenne pepper. Do a search on Dr. Richard Schultz for lots more info. My Mom's doctor reduced her blood pressure med in half several months ago and my Mom hopes to be able to stop completely when she goes back in for her checkup in a couple of months. Besides eating well and taking the ACV and cayenne, she walks several miles 3 - 4 times a week."
[YEA] 01/07/2007: Daniel from Nelson, New Zealand: "This is really excellent stuff on here. I've used cayenne pepper for 15 years plus now along with a few other practices and be live it helps maintain my blood pressure within the normal range without having to alter my diet and life style to much. Can't wait to try out apple cider vinegar at least it wont be as pungent taken in a tea form like the cayenne. having said that, do not be put off cayenne as you can use capsules. It's great stuff!"
[YEA] 01/23/2006: Tameka from Glen Burnie, MD: "I have tried the Cayenne Pepper and Golden Seal capsules. I would generally take two in the morning and 2 in the evening. Worked pretty good. I also have tried the apple cider vinegar and that works well too. 2 to 3 tsp 3 times a day did it for me."
[YEA] Lisa from Egg Harbor Twp, NJ: "I luv to share this. I was told as a 40-something Af. Amer women, that I was borderline hypertensive and put on meds. Not good. I was falling asleep. Also no good to cut the dose -- comatose. A friend told me about a folk remedy - cayenne pepper. She said it needed to be organic cayenne- it's stronger, I guess. I am now over 50 and my pressure is usually in the range of 110/70. I do take a 12mg. water pill to keep me from retaining water also. I started with @1/4 tsp (of cayenne) in any liquid you want 2x a day. If needed, you can up this to 1/2 tsp but do this slowly so your body can adjust to the increase. Now I do watch my salt intake but I only use the cayenne when I have had a particularly salty dish."
[YEA] 12/23/2006: Peyote from Richland, MO: "I take once daily, 1500 mg off garlic soft gel and two capsules of cayenne, 450mg ginger, 200mg hawthorn berry, 50mg of lecithin the last are all in one capsule keeps my BP in check Good luck."
[YEA] 09/09/2011: Stacy from Honesdale, Pennsylvania: "for further help with high blood pressure you should eat celery... At least 4 stalks a day for 7 days and you will see your blood pressure come down!! its true"
[YEA] 07/20/2011: Mick from Ravenna, Oh : "To lower your blood pressure safely juice 4 celery sticks every day. This will lower your blood pressure at least 10 percent. My blood pressure went from 120 over 80 to 90 over 60. Doctor was dumbfounded. Yeah imagine that. I have a condition called aquagenic urticaria and am unable to drink pure water, researched and found celery juice to be the most non allergenic juice available. The blood pressure thing was just a side effect that I have since confirmed through further research."
[YEA] 02/22/2012: Stephenp from Honolulu, Ha, Usa: "Celery Seed Extract for high blood pressure
I am a 27 year old male and have had high blood pressure ever since my first physical for high school sports, otherwise healthy and in great shape. About 6 months ago my blood pressure reading at the doctor was 155/98. This was the highest it has ever been and the doctor recommended going on medication which I didn't want to do.
I started taking celery seed extract which can be bought at any health store or online for under $10. I took two capsules two or three times a day. The next time I had my blood pressure taken was 3 weeks later when donating blood.
I was extremely surprised to find my BP at 124/78
I now take 1 capsule twice a day and take a week off about every six weeks and maybe miss a day here and there."
[YEA] 01/05/2010: Sesostris2 from Menifee, Ca, USA: "high blood pressure neglect resulted in a stroke for me 2yrs ago. for 2 yrs i survived on meds, but side effects were undesirable, and depending on what i ate there was a tendency for hbp spikes and the resulting weakness and nausea.i was basically sick and weak daily. a co-worker shared a snack of celery and apples with me.i noticed it gave me energy, offset the effects of my meds and stabilized my hbp. i used to check my bp daily, sometimes 2-3 times due to nausea and weakness. now i check it 1x mo just to smile. Raw celery, apples, and red grapes daily- 2times a day at first. after 3 weeks my hbp is no longer an issue. I am strong, nausea free. i stopped anti-coag drug and replaced w 81mg adult aspirin, plus cinnamon caplets,and policosinol( all anti-coag)
I also take garlic, and am researching ginger and tumeric as daily supplmts if doctor consents. i now thinks meds are unnecessary but no doctor consent on this. I usually use, 2-3 celery stalks, one juicy red apple, and as many grapes i desire. Now i do this just once a day. Never tried ACV. My cure has to get to the root of my problem and has to be something i can do for life with no side effects. Celery, apples and grapes daily is the bomb!!!"
