Stop Bleeding Quickly!

Have you had a cut that you thought you'd never get stopped bleeding? I have and I have friends and relatives who take blood thinners that have a serious problem if they cut themselves. Here is a little trick for stopping the blood flow quickly and it is as close as your spice rack!

Next time you have a cut, get your powdered Cayenne pepper out, sprinkle it on the cut, and cover with a bandage and amazingly enough, it does not sting! Because it is high in vitamin K, it has excellent clotting properties. You will also find that it has anti-microbial and astringent qualities that will help prevent infection.

Those of you who take blood thinner medications should carry a small container of the powdered cayenne with you. You never know when you might need it.

Have a great day!

Thank you so much. We have a 2 year old on blood thinners. He had a cut on his knee that bled for an 1hr 1.5. The cayenne worked. I think he felt a bit of a burning sensation at first but it sealed up nicely!
