The benefits of cayenne pepper are plentiful! Try cayenne pepper tea this winter to stave off colds and keep your body’s heart and digestive system in top shape.

Excellent for heart and digestive health, cayenne pepper comes from the dried grounds of the hot chili pepper (capsicum annum). Our cayenne pepper powder, imported from Sri Lanka, is fair trade and certified organic. Cayenne provides a very high source of Vitamin A, along with vitamin C and the B complexes, calcium and potassium.

Health Benefits
Capsaicin, the active compound which gives the pepper its strong spicy character, has anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic, pain relieving, and anti-diabetic properties. With regular intake, it can also reduce triglyceride (fat) and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Good for your overall heart health, cayenne pepper stimulates circulation and is excellent for normalizing blood pressure and preventing the formation of clots.

Cayenne is great for your digestion too. The pepper aids metabolism by stimulating the digestive tract thereby increasing enzyme and gastric juice production. It also helps relieve excess gas.

In the Kitchen
Use cayenne pepper in curry dishes to give them that extra kick. During cold season, it’s useful to know cayenne pepper is a great natural decongestant as well as stimulant. For a total body detox, start your day with a cup of cayenne tea with lemon juice and honey.

Our commitment to the environment.

Our packaging uses minimal plastic.  Plastic is triple laminated to preserve freshness. Outer packaging uses craft paper which is 100% recyclable.  These are for displaying in retail stores. To go further in our quest to be more sustainable, these items will be shipped without the outer package, unless otherwise requested.  This reduces packaging waste and the carbon footprint.  Shipping bigger items creates a larger carbon foot print because of more transportation weight (more gas consumption). Our products default to being shipped out in environmentally friendly packaging. If you prefer they ship in displayed packaging please choose the appropriate option on each product as you add them to your cart.
