Ever thought of adding a dash of cayenne pepper to your drink?  You might consider it after learning more about the multifaceted health benefits this small, but powerful pepper has to offer!

- Cayenne pepper has a strong curative effect on a range of cardiovascular problems.

- Cayenne stimulates blood flow, which can help release blockage and bring proper vitamins to all areas of the body and also helps release waste and toxins where blocked.

- Reduces blood pressure and lowers cholesterol.

- When added to food, cayenne helps weight loss due to aiding proper digestion. It also reduces excess appetite due to mal-absorption.

Beta-carotene contained in cayenne pepper works as a good antioxidant that prevents or repairs the damages caused by free radicals, helping prevent atherosclerosis and colon cancer.

These are just a start to the many healing properties available from cayenne pepper.  As the weather gets colder, it is especially helpful to encourage warmth in our bodies and help maintain our body’s balance.

Experiment with adding cayenne to a juice (but be ready for a serious kick!) or try this powerfully WARMING drink, the “Angry Dragon” : A Green Monkey with GINGER and CAYENNE added to it!  Feel the heat!

There’s nothing that reminds us more of back to school than the age-old image of an apple on the teacher’s desk.  But why the apple?  Seemingly overlooked, the apple has a surprising number of health benefits to offer us!

 

1)  A heart healthy food- Western and Eastern medicine agree, apples strengthen the heart!  Their soluble fiber helps prevent cholesterol-rich plaque build up in your arteries.  It can even help reduce cholesterol too!

2)  Apples are packed with vitamins C, A , potassium, and flavonoids and with smaller amounts of phosphorus, iron, and calcium.  And all in only 50-80 calories!

3) The soluble fiber in apples can help with all kinds of digestive problems, easing unpleasant bowel movements.

4)  Apples, like many fruits, help to detoxify our livers.  This is essential for healthy functioning of all other organs!

5)  Apples can help prevent skin diseases and many forms of cancer.

 

The Sprout offers many ways to enjoy this powerful fruit!

Juices: Almost all of our juices contain some apple!  The taste blends perfectly with many veggies, but it also provides us with that full nutritional value we want from our green juices!

Smoothies:  Try any of our fruit smoothies, all made with freshly juiced apples.  Refreshing and thirst quenching on a hot day.
