THIS is what got my attention: "Cayenne peppers' bright red color signals its high content of beta-carotene or pro-vitamin A. Just two teaspoons of cayenne pepper provide 47% of the daily value for vitamin A. Often called the anti-infection vitamin, vitamin A is essential for healthy epithelial tissues including the mucous membranes that line the nasal passages, lungs, intestinal tract and urinary tract and serve as the body's first line of defense against invading pathogens." source
Cayenne Pepper and Lemon Juice recipe
1/2 lemon squeezed
*If you don't have fresh, used 2 tablespoons of "real lemon" or equivalent*
1/4 - 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (powder)
*If it's your first time, start slow*
8 ounces water
Add all ingredients to a large glass. Stir and chug.
I do this 3 times per day
*Update* We have been drinking this for 48 hours. Since I wrote this post 24 hours ago, my husband has not had to use his asthma inhaler. That's HUGE!
While my husband calls this mixture "floor cleaner" because it smells lemony, he actually asked for a glass when I went in to make mine this morning. It's amazing what nature has to offer!

I make Basil Lemonade and posted the recipe last year. It was a hit!
