Cayenne Pepper for Dogs
Cayenne pepper is good for the heart and beneficial for the digestive system of your dog. It can also be useful for dogs suffering from the effects of arthritis.
About Cayenne Pepper
A member of the Capsicum family originally native to Central and South America, cayenne pepper has been in use for culinary and medicinal purposes for more than 9,000 years. Said to have been introduced to Europe by Christopher Columbus, cayenne pepper is a variety of chili pepper.
This hot and spicy pepper is a veritable powerhouse of nutrients which have the ability to do everything from fighting cancer to reducing cholesterol.
In human terms, it contains a massive 1387% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A, good for fighting infection and disease.
It also contains 127% of the recommended daily allowance of antioxidant-rich, immunity-building vitamin C, good for overall health and beneficial for skin, blood, bones and organs. And it contains 199% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin E and 67% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin K, which helps maintain a healthy blood flow.
It’s also a rich source of iron, manganese, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, zinc, selinium and calcium.
Cayenne pepper is, surprisingly perhaps, good for both heart and digestive health in both dogs and humans. It can also be beneficial to dogs suffering with arthritis because of its anti-inflammatory properties, and it can even be used topically to stop bleeding when a dog inadvertently cuts itself.
Hot stuff eh!
