I used to drink this horribly nasty concoction every day and cayenne was a main ingredient. I did it for about a year but eventually gave it up as it was just really nasty. Maybe I should start it again with capsules? Is that an option?

Editing as I guess I am answering my own question:

"Cayenne pepper is very hot to the taste but should be taken orally. It can be taken in capsule form, but its greatest benefits are taken by drinking it? Why drinking it? Because when taken orally in drink form, it has an immediate effect upon the heart and venous structure. Its proponents testify of a pleasant warm sensation cascading down their entire body, providing a delightful warmth."

Ok, I just took 1/4 tsp. in distilled water and my throat is on fire!! The taste reallly isn't as bad as I remember though--it's just hot!

This is the way i take turmeric as well .... a teaspoon in a little glass of water. It tastes fine to me but do brush teeth afterward after rinsing well.
Otherwise you'll have yellowed teeth and a yellowed toothbrush.

There are "cool" versions of Cayenne in capsule form. They work by buffering the effects on the stomach.

Cayenne is a vasodilator which is why it makes the other nine herbs more effective.

I used to use Cayenne frequently for bronchitis. You can feel the burn in your chest as it begins to work. Now I tend to use Grapefruit Seed Extract for bronchitis but I can't say why I switched.

My grandfather claims Cayenne will stop bleeding instantly when applied topically. I have never had the nerve to try that though!

I wouldn't go so far as to claim that "everyone" should have it - it would smack of medical negligence to make a claim like that - but it can have positive benefits for many.

Someone should make cayenne gum.

I've heard the capsules aren't as helpful, but I still notice a large difference when I take one at night - my feet normally get cold due to poor circulation, but after taking one cayenne capsule they warm right back up. I also sleep much sounder, since it circulates the melatonin I take better

Something else to note.... Mexicans are as obese as Americans, yet have much lower heart disease and cancer rates. This is because they eat a diet with lots of cayenne and fiber (fiber literally removes clots it runs across in your arteries)

I did a lot of reading a few years ago on Cayenne -- some great stuff. I do not like anything HOT, but i did get used to this in moderation.

I used to have it in liquid .. .but once that ran out, I just keep the caps on hand.
