Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Cayenne is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from EAT WITH A FULL MEAL I don't know if this actually helps blood flow, but you do notice it if you don't eat a full tummy meal. You will notice and be uncomfortable for awhile if you don't eat enough when you take it. I will give it more time before I decide to continue or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff! Love this Cayenne! I take it for my heart health. I tried the Super Cayenne but came back to this one as I seemed to get better results. I take three with every meal. Excellent herb for many many things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from instant spicy energy Been taking this for a year now and Feel younger than ever. You will feel the effects with inn 20 minutes. Take with food or milk. You won't be disappointed and your heart will thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well just make sure either before or during eat something because that burn in either your chest or stomach is wicked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like many of these common herbal remedies, this simply had no effect on me after taking it for a month. I have a "cast iron stomach" and I normally eat a lot of very spicy foods without difficulty. However, I always feel a slight burning in my stomach after taking this cayenne, with OR without food. So those with tender tummies, beware!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No soy! Some other cayenne supplements are mixed with soy lecithin, which I guessing is used as a heat buffer for the much hotter 100,000HU, or 'heat unit' in the cayenne; but these pills are far less hotter, at 40,000HU, so I'm guessing that it is not necessary for most people. Now don't get me wrong, if even the lesser heat cayenne dissolves in your mouth or the rest of your G.I. tract, you might be aware of it; especially if you don't handle spicy foods well. If you are someone who wants the benefits of cayenne, but cannot handle the heat; I would consider taking the cayenne pill with something like fruit juice and some food that is gentle on your stomach. If you took this cayenne product at the suggested dose routinely, you would have a 100-150 day supply. If you only took 1 pill a day, you would be reaching for almost a year out of this one bottle at 300 days. Overall, I am happy with this affordable cayenne, and how much you get for the money. If you want cayenne that has few ingredients and no soy as far as I can tell, then here is an option for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for over 30 years Great product for circulation, heart and energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You've gotta consider cayenne First, the review by 'kames' stating that an expired product had been received was probably because the label was mis-read... Swanson prints the date of manufacture, not the expiration date, on the label. I love cayenne in all of its forms! For many years, I have kept shakers of cayenne in my vehicles, and they go with me into restaurants. At home, I use cayenne on eggs, potatoes, chicken, almost anything. I love it! Some people are surprised that I don't put it on ice cream! I have only recently begun taking the capsules for heart and overall benefit. But let me tell you, the difference has been obvious: More energy, better skin, overall a better sense of good health.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Upset stomach? Seem to get upset or quezy stomach when I take this. Will continue to experiment to see if there is an interaction with other supplements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to take This form is a good way to take cayenne. Taken in the morning with breakfast, there is no problem with digestion. I have been taking cayenne for well over 25 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Product I have been using Cayenne for 2 years now. It helps with several different areas, mainly cardiovascular health. It is one of the best things I have done to improve my overall health. I recommend it to everyone. It really works.
Date published: 2013-04-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this based on a reccomendation from a friend. Am still figuring out when the best time of day is to take it, and right now afternoons is it- before working out in the evening. Will increase my dosage with time, but right now I'm only taking one a day. Take heed, if you dont drink enough water with this, you might feel the burn

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must have for me. I am a 64 year old male in excellent health. I take Swanson Premium Cayenne twice daily. I believe Cayenne has been of great benefit to me and I highly recommend it to those seeking a high quality supplement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take right after eating!! You really need to take these after eating a meal or else it truly will burn you. I have had this happen and it is kind of scary! I have been taking cayenne for at least 5 years now - and this is a quality product at a great price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Your request I bought from you because I did like your Company. The last purchase did not set well with me. I can buy this same product from local Wal Mart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality I felt the effect right away with this cayenne. A necessary herb to have on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't be beat for heart health! Cayenne can take a little getting used to if you if you haven't taken it before,but don't be discouraged as you will gain a tolerance for it. The benefits to taking Cayenne are many to say the least. I personally never take this in the capsules however. I break them open and sprinkle them on my food or put in my mouth with a spoon and chase it down with water or whatever. Be careful when you first start doing this as it can crank your tractor till you get used to it. You can slowly increase how much you take per day gradually without any discomfort should you wish to do so over a few months.. I like to take 1 teaspoon full three times a day myself . Would like to see this product in a little hotter heat unit for an option though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really works! I took the advice of a previous reviewer & take this capule half way through my meal. As long as I don't overeat, I don't feel any burn. If I eat too much sometimes I feel a little burning (kinda like heartburn) but it's not too uncomfortable. I was at a plateau in my weight loss & this gave it the extra kick I needed to get it moving again in the right direction!! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Product Take with a meal, has great benefits.
Date published: 2009-03-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do I need this ? I started by taking 3 x per day as per recommendation. In the first week I burped these horrible burps I attribute to Cayenne refluxing. The bad taste went away after drinking alot of water. I now take 2 a day with food and lots of water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now That's Effective My family loves the quality and freshness of it. We use it daily. Sometimes more often mixed w/ other ingredients. The BTU's are just enough without being too much. My son likes to open the capsules and dump it on his toungue, I just take the capsules.
