Okay, so cayenne was part of the master cleanse. And the first time I tried the master cleanse, the sheer amount of cayenne per serving actually made my stomach bleed. It burned an ulcer into me! The first time I tried a version of the turmeric tummy cleanse from a recipe on someone else’s blog, I did not add the four tablespoons of cayenne their recipe called for in every 8-ounce serving! However, I find I tolerate a dash or two in every 32-ounce serving of my recipe. Get ready for AMAZING benefits:
1. Boosts circulation and heart health.
2. Fights bad cholesterol and helps burn fat.
3. Boosts metabolism of both sugar and fat, thus aiding weight loss.
4. Reduces the pain response, especially for migraines and joint pain.
5. Detoxes metabolic wastes from the body, from the inside out.
6. Aids in normalizing the adrenal system.
7. Contains vitamins A and C.
8. Improves digestion and stimulates bowl movements, as well as reducing the causes of diarrhea, gas, and bloating.
9. Reduces symptoms of allergies, acts as an antihistamine, breaks up phlegm, and helps fight sinus congestion.
10. Is an effective anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitical, antiviral. And thus aids in improving immune system response as well as fighting infections, viruses, parasites, and much more. It willalso help fight skin infections and lesions including acne, psoriasis, eczema, and allergies.
