What is cayenne pepper and what makes it so helpful for the cayenne pepper diet?
The Cayenne, is a red, hot chili pepper used to flavor dishes and also used in medicine. It takes it’s name from the city of Cayenne in French Guiana.
Cayenne pepper contains a resin-like substance known as capsaicin. This chemical relieves pain and itching by affecting sensory nerves. It causes neurotransmitters to release from nerves, meaning pains signals can no longer be sent. The effect is temporary. It finds it’s use in medicine as a vasodilator (causes your blood vessels to open). It’s commonly used as a thermogenic and to improve blood circulation.
Mucus is one of the body’s defenses against irritation and inflammation. When too much mucus settles in any one area of your body, illness is the natural outcome. In the case of the Master Cleanse or Cayenne Pepper Diet, cayenne pepper and lemon juice is used to break up this mucous and acts as a cleanser for the digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems.
