I have been taking Cayenne pepper for over 20 years, along with Ginkgo Biloba. I am 76 yrs and I am still working 7 days a week. I take both every day and I never break the cycle, ever.
I do not know if this has helped me to get to this age or not, but I have never been in hospital. I just see my Doc once a year for a check up.
I eat almost everything, but in moderation.
I smoked from the age of 17, but stopped almost 4 years now. Stopped drinking at the same time.
I did put on a few pounds, but I feel as though I’m 60.
[Editor’s Note: Here’s what the University of Maryland Medical Center said in 2010 about the benefits of cayenne on pain relief and methods of use. Dr. Andrew Weil published this article about the spice in 2013]
