Natural Weight Loss: Little Spice in Your Life?
Not everyone can handle hot food. But who said cayenne had to be on your food ? I have checked it out and some people add it to there water with a splash of lemon to mask the taste. And it is not noticeable at all. Some people doing this cant handle hot or spicy at all , but have found the benefits in incorporating cayenne into there daily schedule. Some weight loss products have it, along with other Natural ingredients. And I will tell you this, they cant keep the NATURAL products on the shelves. Store and Internet sales for Natural weight loss products are not slowing down.
So as cayenne being one of the ingredients making a difference in the weight and health market, I thought you should know what it can do for you. And it doesn't have to be the "HOT" spice on your food, but the spice that is helping you have a healthier and improved life.
Cayenne Pepper, which is actually a berrie, is also known as Capsicum, and Hot or Red Pepper. It is used as a spice and a dietary supplement. Cayenne Pepper contains beta-carotene, beta-ionone, citric acid, hesperidin, imonen, lutein, and quercetin just to name a few. It also contains capsaicin which reduces pain and inflammation.
Cayenne Pepper has been known for its ability to aid in digestion, improve circulation, and reduce or stop bleeding from stomach ulcers. Taken internally it stimulates circulation and induces sweating to breed a fever. Some native people of Thailand believe that eating Cayenne everyday helps reduce blood cots. Herbalists recommend it to treat colds and infectious diarrhea, arthritis and rheumatism.
There is scientific evidence that suggests adding Cayenne Pepper to meals boosts vitamin C levels and revs up the metabolism. This pepper is also used with lobelia to help soothe nerves. It is beneficial for the heart, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, spleen, and stomach. In naturopathic medicine, Cayenne Pepper is combined with lemon juice, and salt to relieve even the worst sore throat pain for up to 4 hours.
It also fights viral infection. When applied topically in a lotion or salve Cayenne works to soothe muscle aches and pains associated with arthritis, rheumatism, backache, strains and sprains.
So how bad does this "Hot" spice sound now? Not that bad at all. And you would be shocked what a little of it will do for your health.
