Cayenne (Capsicum)

Cayenne causes the brain to secrete more endorphins. Cayenne is rich in vitamin C. It is considered thermogenic, meaning it can rev up metabolism and aid in weight loss. Cayenne also improves circulation. Cayenne helps to relieve pain, not only due to its endorphin enhancing properties, but also when diluted and used topically it helps to block the transmission of substance P, which transports pain messages to the brain.
