The inclusion of cayenne pepper in Vibrant Cleanse is primarily to aid in the healing of intestinal lesions. Cayenne is great for the stomach and the intestinal tract. It stimulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines and aids in assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste. Notwithstanding its hot taste, paradoxically it is actually superb for rebuilding the tissue in the stomach, facilitating healing with stomach and intestinal ulcers. It can help break up mucus as well as supply many B and C Vitamins.
