New Warfarin patient. Cook with lots of cayenne spices, jalapenos, fresh garlic. Wouldn't it be good thing if less mg of Warfarin needed for INR 2-3?

How safe is the master cleanse? This cleanse includes 10 days of drinking fresh lemonade sweetened with maple syrup and cayenne, and no food.

It's relative.: If you are a healthy 26 year old male without diabetes or any major chronic illness, the master cleanse is safe, but quite extreme. It is basically a ten-day fast, which is not good for your metabolism.
I would suggest you find shorter "cleanse" options at your local health food store, that contain vitamins and nutrients to keep your body running, and in balance. ...Read more

Add cayenne to diet: Much better to just add cayenne pepper to your cooking. Add some spice to your life! When you take it in capsule form you miss all of the zing. Better yet get a fresh habanéro at your local grocery and add some real zing (up to 750, 000 SHU) to your diet. ...Read more

Will cayenne pepper help me lose weight?

Will cayenne pepper help me lose weight?

Unlikely to happen: Eating foods that contain cayenne pepper can help with weight loss only if a person doesn't increase the total amount of calories eaten per day. For example, eating spicy food might lower a person's appetite, so he doesn't eat as much at that meal. However, drinking a root beer float to wash down the spiciness will give a person lots of sugar & fat calories, thus increasing his calories & weight. ...Read more
