Chilli pepper “pick me up” has many health benefits and is a great store cupboard standby for winter wellness. Chilli peppers have the ability to increase circulation and aid digestion, but few people realise they also make an excellent mood booster, gently enhancing feelings of vibrant well-being. This is because chillies contain an active ingredient known called capsaicin, which when ingested, produces natural endorphins which have been shown in studies to lift low moods.

A few drops of Chilli Pepper “Pick Me Up” can help aid concentration, making it an excellent supplement for students and busy people who work long hours. Chilli Pepper “Pick Me Up” helps to reduce mental fatigue without the need to resort to caffeine or energy drinks which can ultimately leave you feeling tired and depleted.

Chillies also contain high levels of vitamin C and other trace minerals which may be beneficial for vascular health. They also contain anti-oxidants and flavonoids, all of which are important to a healthy immune system and protecting the body from the potentially damaging effects of free radicals.

This organic chilli tincture is also a natural pain reliever and can be taken internally or added to homemade herbal oils and salves to produce a gentle warming sensation which effectively relieves aches and pains. Herbalists use capsicum as a “messenger” herb. This is because it has the ability to enhance the action of other herbal preparations taken alongside it eg: echinacea for colds and flu (helps to reduce the length of an illness.) This makes it a great addition to natural cold and flu remedies, making them more effective and fast acting.

Some studies report that the beneficial compounds found in chilli peppers may also help to prevent strokes.
