Cinnamon and Hot Sauce in your Coffee

Yahoo recently posted the idea of having coffee with Cinnamon and hot sauce to control cholesterol, stomach ailments and for diabetes. Seems Cinnamon and hot sauce as wonder products in that regard.
I know that if you feed black pepper to chickens in their mash they won't get salmonella nor will their eggs have it.
So I found a few recipes for coffee that might be interesting.
I am trying some Cinnamon and hot sauce in my coffee this morning and it's great and you don't taste the hot sauce.
Interestingly, hot sauce in chocolate candy is said to make it "gourmet".

Here is what Yahoo had to say:
Cinnamon goes back to ancient times and has been used to soothe indigestion, prevent stomach ulcers, prevent tooth decay and a whole host of other problems. Science finds that cinnamon has antiseptic qualities and also helps diabetics metabolize sugar.

Cayenne, also known as Capsaicin, has been shown to aid digestion, ease muscle pain with topical treatment, relieve cluster headaches, lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease, plus others. Cayenne pepper juice is found in most hot sauces and Capsaicin is found in many muscle rub creams.

Now I know you might be doubtful about adding hot sauce to your coffee, but you don't actually taste the difference. And it's been found that hot foods don't CAUSE ulcers, but may cause pain to an existing ulcer. Nonetheless, a few drops in coffee with your creamer should soothe any problems for those with ulcers.
