Determined to keep the bugs at bay, I made this homemade cold & flu remedy. It's so so easy to make and keeps in the fridge for months. Each morning I simply add a couple of teaspoons to some warm water. It also makes a lovely soothing drink if you are suffering with a sore throat.
Cayenne has many medicinal uses. Capsaicin (what gives cayenne its spicy flavor) is a PAIN-RELIEVER. It inhibits sensory & pain nerves, which is great for ARTHRITIS & MIGRAINES. It boosts METABOLISM, aiding with lowering CHOLESTEROL, improving DIGESTION, reducing BLOOD PRESSURE, & LOSING WEIGHT. Cayenne is ANTI-BACTERIAL, helping you fight respiratory infections, SORE THROATS, & flus. The spicy heat is detoxifying & can increase CIRCULATION & remove blockages that promote disease & illness.
