Key Ingredient Benefits

Honey: Despite its high sugar content, honey has many age-old health applications including boosting the immune system, soothing skin, aiding with digestion and as a cough and cold remedy.

Jalapeño: The fiery flavor of jalapenos comes from a compound called capsaicin they contain. Eating capsaicin may improve digestion by increasing digestive fluid secretions and fighting off infections in the digestive tract. Capsaicin acts as an antioxidant in your body and may help lower cholesterol levels.

Onions: This popular food contain a number of flavonoids, one being quercetin (found in Juvenon’s Youthful Energy). This nutrient has been demonstrated in studies to protect the liver, cool the fire of inflammation and has anti-cancer properties. Quercetin may help in weight control by reducing fat synthesis and increasing fat burning.

Red Pepper Flakes: Hot and spicy, red pepper flakes add zest and health to flavorful dishes around the world. The hotness produced by cayenne is caused by its high concentration of a substance called capsaicin. Capsaicin has been widely studied for its pain-reducing effects, its cardiovascular benefits, and its ability to help prevent ulcers. Capsaicin also effectively opens and drains congested nasal passages.

White Vinegar: All vinegars, including white vinegar, contain nutrients. The Vinegar Institute notes that most vinegars contain vitamins like B-1, riboflavin and mineral salts and have no fat. One study showed that vinegar reduced cholesterol levels in rats. Another study showed that drinking 15 ml of vinegar or eating “vinegared” foods suppressed blood glucose levels.
