Cayenne pepper is actually a blend of hot chillies that are mixed to give a consistent heat chilli powder. Cayenne pepper is said to get its name from the Cayenne region of French Guiana, however all chillies are indigenous to Central and South America. Many herbalists believe that Cayenne is the most useful and valuable herb in the herb kingdom, not only for the entire digestive system, but also for the heart and circulatory system. Cayenne pepper uses the seeds and membranes (where the heat is) of a chilli, making it especially hot and pungent.
