Once again, a huge thank you to Earth Clinic and it's amazing community of contributors! Lately, I've found myself waking up in the morning with a dry mouth that seems to persist throughout much of the day. I think it's from drinking coffee - I only ever have one cup first thing in the morning but it seems to wreak havoc on my mouth! This is probably liver related and I try to abstain from drinking it but if I often can't help myself, and then, sure enough, I seem to wake the following day with dry, garbage mouth. Today was particularly bad so I consulted my favourite website in the world (dun dun dun Earth Clinic! ) and found that some dry mouthers like myself have had success with cayenne pepper. Sure enough, I just mixed about a teaspoon in a small cup of water and swished it around my mouth and swallowed and I immediately feel heaps better. I'm definitely going to continue this for several days and see if I can knock it completely whilst still being able to enjoy my morning cup of joe! With gratitude, Kate

Cayenne pepper has been the best remedy for my dry mouth. I read this stimulates saliva, and it does! .. I'm now able to sleep and rest. Thank you Earth Clinic for caring enough to post good remedies.

Just read about the cayenne pepper for dry mouth and went and swished, and it did help. It has been about an hour now and my mouth is still moist. It is also great for ulcers and sore throat!

African Birdseye Cayenne Pepper has cured my dry mouth problems! I had dry mouth from medications for a health condition. I originally bought some cayenne capsules for cholesterol and circulation problems, after doing research on this site, and other websites. I even found a reference to their website on earthclinic! My cold feet and hands are much better than they were. My skin was very dry, and is not anymore, and I am not using any lotion either. It is also suppose to be good for your heart! I have not had my labs done yet, to see if my cholesterol is better, but will let you know.. Do your research! One of the wonderful surprises for me, was no more dry mouth! I take 1 capsule 3 times a day with food, and sprinkle a little on my food first. I have had no side effects from Cayenne either! I also noticed a difference less than an hour after taking my first capsule!
