Wow! a teaspoon of cayenne pepper! I've started with one eighth of a tsp and that is hot!

WOW is right! HOT stuff. If this is your first time, do yourself a favor and go lightly until you get the hang of it....or I should say until your heart can handle it. Yes, I'm a wimp - sue me.

That is one of the ingredients in the master cleanse lemonade diet drink. But they do not use that much. I am going to try it with less than that and see what happens. Cayenne pepper is supposed to be the most beneficial of all the American herbs. I am an herbologist.

I just started doing this and hope it will help me stay healthy. I'm young right now, 20, so I'm only going to be taking one cup of the tea a day, but when I get a bit older I guess I'll up my dose to two or three cups.

I've always eaten cayenne because I just love hot food and I like that it makes my food hot without altering the flavor. Anyway, Because I use so much of it so often, I'm able to handle a teaspoon in eight ounces of water. But definately, go easy on yourself when you start out. If the first time you use it it is very easy on you, then add a bit more and a bit more until it's invigorating.

When I mention this tea to other people, they cringe at it, but not only is it healthy, but I also really enjoy the taste! Lemon is a great addition. I have heard that it helps with weight loss, the lemon added, but others say that's not true. Either way, it can't hurt if it's untrue, and if it is true, happy weight loss! lol. :) Love cayenne!

Interesting article you have wrote, I enjoyed. I found this one earlier today about when searching for cayenne pepper health benefits, as my doctor suggested I should include it in my diet to help strengthen my heart.
