Is cayenne pepper good while breastfeeding?

Not so good?: Cayenne pepper and other spicy foods like chili pepper and hot sauce change the flavor of breast milk in some mothers, although not all nursing moms will experience this change to their milk. This can sometimes cause refusal to eat, or GI upset in the infant. For other infants, it doesn't seem to matter. Read more

Can cayenne pepper on your face cure acne?

Can cayenne pepper on your face cure acne?

No: Acne is a serious chronic disease that can't be cured but remits eventually by itself. Pepper will probably not touch it and will probably hurt and make things worse. I often suspect these foolish internet claims are actually cruel pranks. Get some benzoyl peroxide and see your physician if this fails. Good luck. Read more

I think I smelled to much cayenne pepper, now I'm feeling nauseas and I'll, what do you think I shold do?

Don't stress: Since this was over 23 hours ago I imagine any reaction has passed by now. Sorry no one answered sooner but there may not have been much to do except ride out the reaction. Smelling cayenne is not a serious problem, in fact cayenne has many health benefits. If you had the homeopathic remedy Nux vomica 30c taking a few pellets may have helped. See https://draxe.

Assuming a supplement has 100mg of cayenne pepper @ 40, 000 Scoville units, what would be the capsaicin content, in milligrams? Thanks!

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
