cayenne lowers high cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fatty substance (lipid) that is essential for many bodily functions, including good brain and nerve function. Cholesterol is produced by the liver and is transported through the blood stream to the parts of the body that needs it. Cholesterol is also introduced into the body by the foods a person consumes. There are two types of cholesterol: low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) and high-density lipoproteins (HDLs). LDLs, also known as “bad cholesterol”, are responsible for moving cholesterol into the bloodstream, but they also tend to leave fatty deposits behind in the arteries. The job of HDLs, or “good cholesterol”, is to carry unneeded cholesterol away from the cells and back to the liver, where it is removed from the body. Cayenne herb is derived from grinding the dried pepper fruit, Capsicum frutescens, to a fine powder form and then taken in capsule. Cayenne has many uses that have benefited people for thousands of years. It is a diuretic, antiseptic, analgesic and expectorant. It also considerably lowers the cholesterol levels by helping the body to process fat and quickly excretes it from the body. Cayenne is an herb that once digested by the body, helps to clean the bloodstream of unwanted elements. Cayenne processes fat without absorbing it and it helps the body excrete the fats through normal bowel movements. Cayenne is one of the ingredients of Cholesterol Combo from Nepatica. The other ingredients are Red Yeast Rice, Garlic, Guggul and Apple Pectin. Read more!

Thanks for this post. I will definitely give cayenne a try too. Here are some other herbs and spices that have apparently been shown to be effective in the treatment of high cholesterol too.
