What Cayenne pepper herb Is:

Whether you're eating Mexican, Chinese, or any cuisine in between, if the food sparks a fire in your mouth, you probably can thank a substance called capsaicin. The phytochemical is found in many peppers, from the mild-tasting bell pepper to the hotter chile pepper to the scorching jalapeno chile pepper. Even the relatively mild and somewhat sweeter paprika pepper contains some capsaicin. The hotter the taste, the more capsaicin the pepper contains. All of these peppers (which technically are berries, not vegetables) belong to the nightshade family. Cayenne, indigenous to the equatorial area of the Americas but now grown in tropical and temperate gardens around the world, is probably the best-known source of the phytochemical capsaicin.

An essential ingredient in cooking, cayenne is also known as the chilli or hot pepper. It contains carotene molecules which have powerful antioxidant effects. Cayenne can also help digestion, improve circulation and lower cholesterol and blood fat levels. When applied topically, it acts as a pain reliever.
