Only in moderation: These are easy to add to your meals and snacks.It comes in whole form or as a dried spice.According to dr gupta too much of this pepper can cause diarrhea, skin rash and other harmful effect.A dash of cayonne pepper on your meals and snacks is fine as long as it is in moderation.There is no dose in grms which is safe. You can take 30to120mgm capsule 2 to3 times a day.But talk with your doc before t.
