Cayenne seeds are a remarkable source of sodium, potassium, manganese, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and iron. Together, these constituents help purify the blood, produce red blood cells, and strengthen the bones and the immune system. The seeds are also a power house of unsaturated fatty acids that reduce the cholesterol level in blood and help with the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, especially atherosclerosis.
