The Virtues of Cayenne.....
« on: August 12, 2013, 05:06:39 AM »
A few years ago, my hairdresser/health-food-guru/philosopher talked with me about the virtues of cayenne pepper and I began drinking 1/2 - 1 tsp in water every day...I felt great! After going WB in January, I more or less forgot about it since I was adding the probiotics etc. but am now thinking of adding it back in my daily regimen.

Bet that gave you a good kick in the butt everyday.  Who needs caffeine?

Sounds interesting. So...I put cayenne on our fried eggs this morning :)) I may have to think awhile before drinking it.

I just tried this with 1/4 teaspoon and I'm awake now HA HA HA! I'm not sure how I feel about working up to a full teaspoon. As of now, I'm not sure it is something I could keep up everyday, but the Article was very interesting and appreciate you sharing, Jan! It's always wonderful to learn and experiment! I've challenged my Tween-age nephew to do it. Wonder how that will go HA HA!

I've been using cayenne pepper ever since I started WB.  I love it!  I used it in just about everything...even my scrambled eggs.  Trying to not use so much salt.

Yoweee! 1/8 tsp cayenne in about 1-1/2 inches of warm water. Do I need to add more water?

Deanna.....that's how I started 1/8 tsp. in a little water (1 to 2" sounds right).....then I incrementally upped it till I reached 1 tsp. I sort of stopped when I started WB but have resumed....glad you like it!

For many years I have used Capsicum, or peppers, cayenne etc in most of my meals. Today is the first time I have followed up on some research regarding health benefits. However, I am a little concerned after reading one paper, "Hot spices influence permeability of human intestinal epithelial monolayers."http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9482766  J Nutr. 1998 Mar;128(3):577-81.
One of the problems with the gliadin in modern wheat is that it increases permeability of the gut - leading to various consequences that we are now familiar with. Apparently, pakrika, and cayenne etc  do the same.

Bea....I'm wondering if the subject's gut ecology was severely compromised to begin with, whether the capsicum had an aggravating effect>

The article is written by our government. My opinion is that the study was compromised in some way. Lol. They can't keep good control of us if we make ourselves well and don't need drugs
