Cayenne Pepper

It’s known for its detoxing and cleansing mechanisms or regimes. Cayenne is a known circulatory stimulant. It increases the pulse of our lymphatic and digestive rhythms. By heating the body, the natural process of detoxification occurs.

Cayenne also causes us to sweat – another important process of detoxification. Combined with lemon juice and honey, cayenne tea is an excellent morning beverage for total body detox.

Using cayenne pepper in different foods and beverages, we bring in additional channels and ways for our body to detoxify in a natural way.

Chili Pepper

Chilis are some of the best antioxidants we can ever add to our meals and different recipes, including beverages.

Chili peppers contain Vitamin C, carotenoids alongside with capsaicin – the ingredients that research finds to improve insulin regulation. Chilis can be added to our omelets, soups, teas and coffee drinks. Add chili powder or chili pepper infused oils to your salad or mashed potatoes or bean recipes to spice up and add taste. Chili peppers truly add a valuable array of benefits to our well-being.
