Flavor: You may take cayenne pepper for taste and flavor, but do not expect it to help in weight loss, nor can you count on any health benefits from peppers. Weight loss is not easy, but requires restricting your caloric intake and increasing exercise.

What are the health benefits of olive oil and lemmon pepper?

What are the health benefits of olive oil and lemmon pepper?

Olive oil is great: Olive oil is an omega 9 fat and is extremely healthy. Its regular use in a mediterrean diet has been shown to decrease heart disease, diabetes, and decrease inflammation. Lemon pepper is basically lemon juice spiced with pepper to help add flavor. It has not been associated with true medical benefits and the detox programs using it are not studied. I think its great to add for taste though.

Are there any real benefits to herbs/supplements vs some over-the-counter drugs? Ie: melanin vs diphenhydramine, peppermint/catnip vs tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Absolutely: Let's clarify - over-the-counter drugs (otcs) are virtually the same medications as prescription ones except that they've been granted the freedom to be sold without prescription due to their "benign" profile. Supplements are not medications in and of themselves. They are more or less "naturally" derived preparations that are used for the same purpose as meds. Some of them can be as effective too.
