16 Reasons To Detox With Lemon Water And Cayenne Pepper Drink

A few years ago, the lemon and cayenne diet was hugely popular with celebrities as a weight-loss “detox.” The diet consisted of lemon water sweetened with honey and spiced with cayenne pepper. In order to detox, it was recommended that this alone should be consumed for 10 days. The diet naturally led to rapid weight loss, but for most people, it had no long-term benefits.

Dr. Levitt is a naturopathic physician who's known for his expertise in managing common and complex medical problems with a unique integrative approach.

I have to admit, that is actually a recipe my family and I cook all of the time. Not only is it delicious, but you can drink it for any meal of the day. I particularly love to start my day with a heavy amount of nutrients, and this is my go-to broth to start immediately alkalizing my body when I wake up in the morning. My 3 kids thought it was weird at first that we were "drinking soup for breakfast," now they can't get enough of it! And it even gives them a super nutrient-boost to the day before they head into school, and it gives me the best start to my day so I can have extreme focus when I see my patients at my practice.

As I mentioned earlier, this is the exact same detox that I created for my actual patients in Connecticut where my current rate to meet with them is $250/hour. These visits can add up, but luckily for you, I am offering my detox program at this extremely low rate of $1. That's a fraction of the cost of a single doctor's appointment!

You see, I want to be able to help folks outside of our community, and the most efficient way to do this was to essentially slash my rate for you, while keeping the same value.

My 14-Day Detox Program has literally changed the lives of many folks who have walked through my door. And I know it can change yours as well.

Let's do this together!


As with most diets, a less extreme approach is often more effective in the long run. The properties of cayenne pepper and lemon are ideal for detoxing the body when used as a supplement to a healthy lifestyle. A drink of lemon water, honey and cayenne pepper consumed daily can provide a wealth of benefits as part of a healthy diet.

Much of the health benefits of this natural elixir come from the powerful active ingredients found in both lemon and cayenne pepper. Lemon contains around eight percent citric acid, which has historically been used as a natural preservative. Not only that, citric acid also aids in smooth digestion, helps dissolve kidney stones and actually helps to alkalize the body. 

Cayenne packs it’s own incredible health punch with the aid of capsaicin, a compound that has received considerable attention in the scientific world. Capsaicin has been proven to treat anything from headaches to osteoarthritis. Research continues to reveal more wonders of this antioxidant every year.

As individual ingredients, lemon and cayenne are forces to be reckoned with. But together, they provide a truly nourishing elixir of health. Here are 16 reasons to detox with a lemon water and cayenne pepper drink every day:

1. Boosts immunity

Lemons contain a large amount of vitamin C, which boosts the immune system. Cayenne pepper contains an ingredient called capsaicin, which also has immune-boosting properties. A 1998 study published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research showed that mice fed with capsaicin had better immune responses than those that were not given capsaicin.

2. Stimulates liver

The mix of vitamins and minerals in lemon and cayenne pepper helps to stimulate the liver. The combination provides the liver with the right balance of nutrients to detox from harmful substances, such as sugar and alcohol.

3. Aids digestion

Cayenne pepper stimulates the digestive system and intestines. It can soothe gas, a sour stomach and other digestive problems. Lemon is also a natural stimulant for the digestive system and helps to balance acidity in the body. Drinking lemon water can even reduce heartburn and acid reflux.

4. Defends against bacteria

Cayenne and lemon are both powerful allies in the fight against bacteria. The properties in lemon and cayenne are so strong, they can be used as antibacterial cleaners. Drinking lemon water with cayenne can prevent you from getting sick. If you do happen to pick up an infection, the combination of lemon and cayenne can work to reduce your symptoms.

6. Fights cravings

Lemon has appetite-suppressing properties, which may also reduce sugar cravings during the day. Cayenne boosts the metabolism, which burns fat while suppressing the appetite. The combination is the ultimate painless weight-loss aid. It encourages your body to stay at a healthy weight and discourages overeating.

5. Lower blood pressure

Cayenne is stimulating to the circulatory system, which can help keep blood pressure low. It may even fight common heart problems that can lead to serious conditions. Cayenne works to strengthen the blood vessels, keeping blood moving efficiently and cholesterol levels low.

7. Aids lymphatic health

Cayenne is an overall stimulant. It encourages the cells to work more efficiently. This not only improves blood circulation but also improves lymphatic health as well.

8. Possibly fights cancer

Lemon and cayenne have short-term and long-term benefits. A 1998 study found that capsaicin has 22 anticancer properties. In some studies, capsaicin intake has been linked with a reduction in lung cancer.

10. Heals gingivitis

Lemon contains high levels of vitamin C, which can be effective in fighting gingivitis. Most adults suffer from a lack of vitamin C in the diet, which can cause the spread of bacteria in the mouth. Researchers have found that the capsaicin in cayenne pepper is linked to a reduction in toothaches and tooth pain.

9. Fights viruses

Together, lemon and cayenne have properties that help soothe minor viral infections, specifically sore throats. Lemon boosts the immune system. Cayenne contains compounds that soothe sore throats and reduce congestion. This beverage is ideal for use during cold and flu season.

11. Soothes gastrointestinal tract

12. Relieves pain

Drinking cayenne can help to alleviate gastrointestinal irritation. It reduces inflammation and other irritable responses to food intolerances or limited digestive capacity. This means that getting more cayenne in your diet can help to ease upset stomachs, reduce (and even remove) peptic ulcers and help decongest your airways. 

The atomic structure of lemon juice is similar to the digestive compounds found naturally in your stomach. Drinking a lemon water and cayenne pepper drink can actually help your stomach to produce more bile, thereby helping food move through your stomach more efficiently. This reduces the amount of time food spends in your stomach and also prevents certain protein-rich foods from rotting in your gut. The result is reduced stomach irritation, lower risk of developing stomach ulcers and ultimately a better outlook on food!

The ability of cayenne pepper to dramatically reduce nerve and joint pain has received considerable scientific study. One of the ways in which cayenne achieves this is through actively reducing mast cells in the body, which are associated with inflammation and pain. 

Not only that, the capsaicin found in cayenne pepper actively blocks the body’s production of substance-P, a compound which activates the pain mechanism in the brain. Countless studies have shown that by exhausting the body’s production of substance-P, patients found significant decreases in both joint and nerve pain. Research even shows that consuming cayenne and other hot peppers every day can make a big difference with regards to back pain

Lemons make a good partner to cayenne when it comes to pain alleviation, as they are highly anti-inflammatory. Because inflammation is one of the key markers of pain, more lemon in your life can only be a good thing!

13. Keeps skin healthy

The skin-healing abilities of lemons are legendary. A quick Google search brings up hundreds of natural remedies for anything from dry, itchy skin to serious epidermal conditions like psoriasis or eczema. 

Much of the benefits derive from the high vitamin C content in lemon, a well-known antioxidant and fighter of free radicals. Because free radicals undermine the health of your skin through oxidative damage of your skin cells, more vitamin C from lemon means healthier, younger-looking skin.

Cayenne isn’t exactly loaded with vitamin C. Still, people have been using it for hundreds of years as a treatment for various ailments of the skin. These include snake bites, open sores and wounds, bug bits and anything in between. With these two ingredients together in a zesty drink, your skin will be looking and feeling better in no time.

14. Prevents blood clots

As many people know, blood clots can be very dangerous if left undiagnosed. These occur when blockages occur in your arteries and blood vessels, limiting the flow of blood through your circulatory system and starving your body of much-needed oxygen and nutrients. 

Cayenne may help to reduce your risk of developing blood clots due to its high concentration of capsaicin. This wondrous compound is believed to help clear away artery-narrowing lipid deposits, along with dilating arteries and blood vessels, thereby clearing away potential clots.

16. Relieves headaches

If you constantly suffer from debilitating migraine headaches, you either rely on prescription meds or retreating to a dark room. Neither of these options is ideal. These meds can often present harmful side effects. Plus, you don’t always have time to retreat to a dark room every time a headache hits! 

Do you struggle to get started in the morning without one or more cups of strong coffee? While certain types of coffee are good for your health, you should only drink coffee in moderation and stick to the good stuff

An excellent, healthy alternative is a lemon water and cayenne pepper drink first thing in the morning. Lemons help to boost your energy levels by providing your body with plenty of negatively-charged ions. When these ions enter your digestive tract, they provide an almost instantaneous source of energy without the repercussions associated with caffeine or sugar. 

Not only that, the capsaicin found in cayenne pepper plays an important role in thermogenesis. This is the process by which your body converts energy into heat. More thermogenesis means more heat, which in turn increases your metabolic rate and provides you with a boost of energy.

15. Aids weight loss

Research shows that cayenne pepper is able to significantly reduce migraines and cluster headaches due to its ability to impair the body’s production of substance-P. This occurs when the capsaicin in cayenne simulates the sensation of pain in another part of the body, eventually depleting substance-P and therefore lessening the sensation of pain or throbbing in your head. 

Drink lemon and cayenne pepper daily first thing in the morning to receive all of the benefits they provide. We do not recommend the extreme diet of drinking lemon water and cayenne alone. This is not a healthy way to lose weight or detox, and it should not be your only source of nutrition during the day. Balance the intake of your detox drink with a healthy diet filled with vegetables and fruit, and you will feel much better in no time.

The $1 Detox Program
(say goodbye to that belly in 14 days)

As you can tell, this lemon & cayenne pepper elixir is super easy to make and there are literally tons of fat-busting health benefits that come with it.

And here is the absolute truth, this is just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to a full-body detox that can help you she 5, 10, 15 or more pounds!

But the problem is that when you go on a diet or weight-loss program, there is little to no help along the way. And, most of these programs are “designed” by people who aren’t doctors, and they just want to take your money.

That’s why this is different.

I am a naturopathic physician who's known for his expertise in managing common and complex medical problems with a unique integrative approach.


I see patients at my private natural family medicine practice in Connecticut and I am a clinical preceptor for the Yale School of Medicine where I have also developed and taught courses in integrative medicine… and regularly write and consult on clinical, research, and business in the natural medicine industry. I have a degree in physiology from UCLA, a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the prestigious Bastyr University, and formal training in integrative medicine in Seattle, WA.

The bottom line is, when it comes to how to safely lose weight, you can trust me.

And that's why I want to share my exclusive 14 Day Detox Program with you. This is the exact same detoxification program that I have created and used with thousands of my patients at my practice in Connecticut.

I've made special arrangements with my publisher for you to receive digital, downloadable copies of my exclusive program – Dr. Joshua Levitt's 14 Day Detox Revolution – that includes...

Quick-and-easy meal ideas and recipes using items you can pick up at your local supermarket that correspond to each phase of the program.
