Circulation Enhancer and Blood Pressure Regulator
Capsicum & Garlic w/ Parsley is a combination designed to improve blood circulation. It has been used to reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels and improve blood flow to the extremities. It also stimulates digestion and helps the body battle infections, particularly in the respiratory system. It has also been used for bronchitis, chills, cold symptoms, kidney infections, lymphatic congestion, and pneumonia.
The following describes the beneficial effects of each herb in this combination:
Garlic: In past times this herb has been called the "wonder drug," and is one of the oldest herbal medicines we know about. The Egyptians employed the strong smelling herb as a remedy for all forms of illnesses and to increase the strength ofthe slaves constructing the pyramids.
Garlic is very beneficial to the circulatory system. Studies show that it can reduce cholesterol levels in the blood and reduce clotting due to its blood thinning capabilities. Taken regularly, garlic also has a mild effect in lowering blood pressure. Clinical studies have also demonstrated the powerful antibacterial properties garlic possesses. Researchers discovered that one medium sized clove contains the antibacterial "punch" of about 100,000 units of penicillin.
What makes it so powerful? The answer is sulfur. Garlic contains the sulfur compound alliin. When the herb is crushed or sliced, alliin makes contact with an enzyme called allinase which then creates allicin. Allicin has been proven to be a potent bacteria killer. In fact, it destroys 23 kinds of bacteria including staph and salmonella. After about 24 hours allicin degrades into other sulphur compounds which have little effect on infection but still benefits circulation.
Capsicum, also called Cayenne, is a powerful circulatory stimulant. It enhances blood flow to the extremities and helps to equalize circulation. Because every tissue of the body needs blood flow in order to heal, this herb has been used as a catalyst in many Western formulas. This red pepper also helps to arrest both internal and external bleeding. Capsicum has also exhibited anti-inflammatory and pain relieving qualities.
Parsley contains a strong oil consisting of apiol and myisticin which stimulate proper kidney function. This in turn helps with blood flow, urination problems and kidney stones. In addition, its diuretic effect may contribute to its success as a tool for lowering blood pressure. Another benefit of parsley in this formula is that it reduces the odor of garlic.
