4 Reasons You Should Add Spice To Your Life

Cayenne pepper, most commonly used in its powdered form, is a very spicy addition to any meal. On the Scoville Scale (the scale that rates the potency – spicy heat – of peppers) cayenne pepper rates in the middle at 30,000-50,000 heat units.

Native Americans have used cayenne pepper in their food and medicines for over 9000 years. I prefer cayenne to other hot sauce types, as it has a kind of heat that enhances flavor without sacrificing taste.

1. Cayenne Pepper contains vitamins E, C, A, and B6, potassium, riboflavin, and manganese.

2. Cayenne Pepper is full of capsaicin. Various health benefits are attributed to the capsaicin found in cayenne peppers such as cinching your waistline. It can also be used topically for pain relief.

3. Cayenne Pepper helps produce saliva.
Having the correct amount of saliva is important to digestion and maintaining oral health.

4. Including cayenne pepper into your meals, especially breakfast, lessens your appetite throughout the entire day. Boost your metabolism and burn excess fat by consuming it daily.

 

A little cayenne pepper packs a lot of heat in recipes and even more in sauces. Adding this spice to your meals is very easy and surprisingly delicious.
