New Pepper Spray Puts an End to Bad Breath and More

There’s no doubt two of the most important keys to living a long life include having a healthy metabolism and good circulation, and many studies have shown hot peppers to be an important factor in maintaining circulatory health.

Enter a new product known as, “Pepper Boost”. It’s the world’s first liquid capsaicin supplement of its’ kind, and it’s being touted as a breakthrough in promoting natural weight loss by suppressing the appetite and boosting the metabolism. Popular with exercise enthusiasts looking for a quick burst of energy, Pepper Boost has quickly gained the attention of the health crowd.

SiCap Industries, the company that manufactures Pepper Boost has also discovered another important benefit from their new product. It turns out that Pepper Boost is also an incredibly effective breath spray.

The company has tested their product with several focus groups to get an idea of how to best market Pepper Boost, and each group has commented on the powerful breath freshening properties of this innovative herbal spray.

Pepper Boost uses “Oleoresin Capsicum,” a natural chili pepper extract as one of its’ main active ingredients. Used primarily in the food industry, liquid capsicum is a powerful concentrated form of pepper with the active ingredient being capsaicin. Capsaicin is the natural chemical that puts the “Hot” in hot peppers.

The Pepper Boost formula uses a combination of natural herbal extracts to create a powerful cocktail that’s applied in the form of a spray. The product comes in a 2 ounce bottle that can be sprayed directly on the tongue, or on foods that go well with lime and pepper.

“Pepper Boost is designed for people who want to get their daily supply of capsaicin, but may not want to eat piles of peppers to do it. It doesn’t mean you should cut out eating hot peppers. Instead it’s designed to be a supplement that puts a concentrated amount of capsaicin into your system quickly and efficiently,” says Joyce Newman, creator of the website (www.pepperhealth.com).

Newman’s website focuses on the health benefits of peppers, (especially the hot stuff) and she believes Pepper Boost could be the next big thing in weight loss and circulatory health.

“It’s really powerful stuff. I like to spray it on my salads and it’s great on any kind of grilled food, even steak. It has a nice lime aroma and taste, and when you spray it on your tongue it gives you a fast boost sensation,” adds Newman.

The folks at (pepperhealth.com) might be on the right track since there are some very well regarded studies that show capsaicin can increase metabolic activity dramatically while simultaneously suppressing the appetite.
