Cayenne pepper cleanse involves the use of cayenne pepper and certain herbs for detoxification of the body. Here is the information about this detox program.
The proponents of detox programs vehemently support these programs, attributing the need for detoxification to the polluted air that we breathe, adulterated and unhealthy food that we consume, and stress that fills our mind with anxiety. Cayenne pepper is one of the commonly used ingredients in some of these programs.
One of the programs that involves the use of cayenne pepper is the lemon cayenne pepper diet. This diet became popular, after it was used by Beyonce. This diet program allows the consumption of only cayenne pepper drinks while dieting. The ingredients of this cleanse are maple syrup, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper.
The maple syrup provides the body with complex sugars, which provide energy. While the acidic lemon juice gets rid of the toxins present in the body, cayenne pepper acts as an appetite suppressant.
