Doctor,I'm a DVT patient still taking warfarin, can I take cayenne pepper spice? Am told it is good for blood circulation.

Caution

Warfarin_sodium
This herb capsicum (cayenne) may have the potential to prolong clotting time, so people taking Warfarin should exercise caution before eating quantities of chili peppers. Cayenne also inhibits liver enzymes (CYP1A2) and thus slows the metabolism of Warfarin. The combined effect could lead to an increased risk of bleeding.

Cayenne Pepper mixed with Olive Oil on the scalp for circulation. What do you think of this? It's quite popular.

Myths

Circulation
That would not in any way improve the circulation. That is a cruel hoax put on the internet by strangers for a good laugh.

Does cayenne pepper work to improve blood flow?

Locally

Blood
It can increase local blood flow when applied topically. Of course this effect is temporary and has little or no bearing on systemic blood flow.

Dr. Irv Loh answered:

how do i improve blood circulation?

Depends

Blood
Problems of "blood circulation" can be variously and broadly defined. Can be as simple as cool extremities with normal blood vessels, or as severe as possible loss of limbs due to significantly blocked vessels. Also depends on whether the problems are arterial or venous. So recommendations for "improvement" depend on cause. Risk factor control, exercise, judicious medication use are options.

Could cayenne pepper make acne worse?

Yes

Acne
It's actually promoted as a "pop" treatment on the internet. I suspect this is a prank. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength treatment.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Will cayenne pepper help me lose weight?

Unlikely to happen

Open-uri20111211-6755-w6vs47
Eating foods that contain cayenne pepper can help with weight loss ONLY IF a person doesn't increase the total amount of calories eaten per day. For example, eating spicy food might lower a person's appetite, so he doesn't eat as much at that meal. However, drinking a root beer float to wash down the spiciness will give a person lots of sugar & fat calories, thus increasing his calories & weight.

How can I improve poor blood circulation?

Having cold hands?

Open-uri20120901-14730-8jbck5
Keeping warm, active, don't smoke, and of course a healthy, balanced diet/exercise will help you maintain good health. Since u are 36 and possibley having cold hands/feet? I suspect you may have a vasospastic condition called raynaud's phenomenon. When exposed to cold, this can cause significant symptoms--color changes, pain etc..keep warm, wear gloves. consult doc for eval/treatment. Good luck
