My daughter as a severe case of asthma. Somewhere she says she read that cayenne pepper will help stop the asthma attack. Has she lost her mind or does she have something going there? Thanks for any information.
Some sources claim that taking 2 capsules of cayenne per day strengthens the mucosal lining of the lungs, but one doctor, John Sanico of Johns Hopkins Asthma and Allergy Center says "It would be a stretch to say that capsaicin can help asthma sufferers." As far as I know, no definitive study has been done on this subject.
