Superfood Spotlight: Cayenne Pepper

There are a few things that get us excited, and cayenne pepper is definitely one of them. With it being -20 in Toronto, it’s almost inevitable to look for something that’ll spice up the daily routine (before we literally freeze over). Cayenne pepper is one of those things where a little goes a long way, because you really don’t need too much of it to feel the benefits. It’s gained a lot of hype in the health and wellness world for its detoxifying properties and has been used in traditional healing of the skin and body.

With that being said, try adding cayenne to your daily routine to see if it works for you. Some of the differences cayenne can make are:

  • Anti-Cold and flu
  • Prevents headaches
  • Is a digestive aid
  • Promotes circulation
  • Anti-bacterial 
  • Speeds up metabolism

All pretty good reasons if you ask us! Since your morning routine likely already includes warm water with lemon in it, try sprinkling a little cayenne pepper on top; and you have been warned…. you really only need one sprinkle (it is pretttyyyy spicy!). 

We love to drink this tonic in the morning and throughout the day, and our skin and digestive system thank us for it!
