Cuts are part of our everyday’s life, but sometimes we’re just unable to stop the bleeding. Young parents usually freak out after they see this tiny cut on their child’s knee or arm. We have the perfect solution to your reddish nightmare, and it won’t cost you a thing. It’s a bit spicy though.
Cayenne pepper is something you add to your savory dishes. But, did you know that it can stop your bleeding within 10 seconds? Experts swear on its efficacy on both minor and deep cuts. It works well on open wounds, too.
eHow explains that cayenne pepper has long been used as a miraculous product as it stops bleeding within a minute under any circumstances.
The spicy pepper equalizes blood pressure by reacting with the body. This lowers the pressure surrounding the wound, and blood clots easily once the pressure is equalized.
Cayenne normalizes blood pressure, and stimulates the clotting process. Apply it topically or just swallow it. However, make sure you consult a professional before trying any of the methods, especially if your cut is serious.
In his book School of Natural Healing, Dr. John Christopher explains that you should add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to a glass of warm water and drink it. The bleeding will stop within 10 seconds. Regardless of whether the bleeding is internal or external, a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and super warm water can stop the bleeding almost instantly.
It may be hard for you to believe, but oral application does miracles, too.
Cayenne soothes infections that develop in minor cuts due to its antibacterial effect. It destroys dangerous bacteria, and stops them from entering the body.
Capsaicin in cayenne pepper relieves pain as reported by a British study. It reduces the level of a peptide hormone called P depletor that signals pain to the brain. It sounds amazing, right?
