ACV also helps kill bad bacteria thanks to its antibacterial capacity. Moreover, it will strengthen your immunity and help you fight off diseases better.
ACV is also able to restore the pH balance in your body thanks to its electrolytes.
Why Use Cayenne Pepper?
Capsaicin is cayenne pepper’s active ingredient and it is a well known natural cure for nasal congestion, as well as a powerful painkiller. It will detoxify the airways and bring relief from the symptoms.
It also helps breakdown the mucus deposits by expanding the blood vessels. This spice can reduce pain in the face and lower inflammation, according to The Healthy Lifestyle.
