First of all, keep in mind that cayenne is a red, hot chili pepper. Maybe you’ve heard some of its other names such as: African red pepper, Spanish pepper, bird pepper, Guinea pepper, American red pepper or its Latin name Capsicum annum. The name I use to know it is hot chili pepper; while some of my friends as capsicum.
I should ask attention regarding the use of cayenne: Keep in mind that your body is not used with cayenne taste. That’s why you have to start with small proportions and slowly increase the amount.
Put 5 oz of water in a cup or container.
Benefits of cayenne pepper for diabetes control
Basically, cayenne indirectly interferes in diabetes control.
Then, put in two tablespoons of lemon squeeze without pulp and seeds.
Next, add 1/10 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper.
The last and the most important step is to “taste” this nice lemon cayenne pepper detox drink.
Some doctors practice keeping cayenne capsules with them in case they face any heart attack or any other vascular emergencies.
With regards to the lowering blood sugar effect, no evidence has shown it yet.
However, if cayenne can help you manage neuropathy, vascular or/and skin problems; it seems to be great, don't you think so?
That is why I have dedicated this page to the benefits of cayenne pepper for controlling blood sugar.
However, cayenne alone cannot help you much. There are many other natural alternatives if taken together can make the difference. See how by clicking here.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this page, you can find it at any local store. As it is mostly used in its powder form; I think it could be difficult for you to prepare the fresh one with your hands. You can also find the cayenne powder at the local store.
However, as the pharmaceutical machinery has moved forward; it has come out with the extract of the cayenne pepper for diabetes control purposes (i.e. in doses that help a diabetic as mentioned above). The usual dose is a capsule of 450 mg of cayenne pepper extract, up to 3 times a day.
Stomach upset and vomiting are usually associated with cayenne powder use. You can try peppermint or/and ginger to reduce these symptoms.
Furthermore, it is good to take some rest after initiating cayenne therapy in order to reduce the symptoms of tolerance to your body. For example, two months after initiating the therapy, do not use cayenne, try something else for about 2 or 3 other months. Then, return to cayenne again.
