Intranasal Hot Pepper Extract May Curb Cocaine Addiction
The world's first all natural hot pepper nasal spray is known for it's ability to fight off sinus infections, allergies and headaches, but now the product known as "Sinus Buster" is also being touted as a potential cure for Cocaine addiction.
Known as the world’s first hot pepper nasal spray, the Sinus Buster brand features a line of seven distinctly different pepper nasal sprays. The products are each aimed at specific chronic health conditions such as nasal allergies, headaches, weight loss and even a nasal spray designed for smoking cessation.
Now a handful of Sinus Buster users are also claiming this pepper based nasal spray has alleviated their addictions to cocaine. According to the manufacturer, SiCap Industries, clinical studies have shown that Capsaicin, (the active ingredient in hot peppers) may be an effective deterrent against certain addictions.
"Some studies do show a huge potential for using Capsaicin to stop certain addictions, but nobody has done a large study concentrating on intranasal cocaine use. Currently we have one university studying our Smoking Cessation formula on a small group, but we have many customers telling us it works for them. And recently we’ve been getting emails from customers saying Sinus Buster helped them kick the cocaine habit. That to me is miraculous and we need to get a large study moving as soon as possible," says Wayne Perry, president of SiCap Industries.
Here’s an actual testimonial from a long time Sinus Buster user whose name is being withheld to protect her privacy,
"Dear SiCap Industries, I wanted you to be aware of another use that you may be unaware of for Sinus Buster. I’ve been a cocaine addict for over 20 years. I’ve tried to quit for the last 10 years. I would use cocaine every single day even if I were sick and my family had no idea. In February I started using sinus buster every time I had an urge to snort coke and that and some prayers helped me quit. I am totally convinced it was because of your product that I have been able to kick it. It really is amazing."
SiCap Industries is presently accepting applications from qualified drug rehabilitation programs wishing to participate in clinical study programs designed to prove the effectiveness of intranasal Capsaicin in Cocaine addicts.
"We have at least twenty customers who’ve made the same claim as this woman and it’s something we have to explore. According to government sources, there are nearly four million Americans addicted to intranasal Cocaine and many more who snort everything from Heroin to glue. I believe Capsaicin could be the answer for many of these addicts, and our company is willing to provide as much free product as possible to help get addicts off intranasal drugs," adds Perry.
According to government sponsored studies, Cocaine itself is an epidemic among the (12 thru 25) age group. Many of these young Americans will become addicts, and to date there have been no significant breakthroughs helping these people stay off drugs.
In 1997, an estimated 1.5 million Americans (0.7 percent of those age 12 and older) were current cocaine users, according to the 1997 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA). This number has not changed significantly since 1992, although it is a dramatic decrease from the 1985 peak of 5.7 million cocaine users (3 percent of the population). Based upon additional data sources that take into account users underrepresented in the NHSDA, the Office of National Drug Control Policy estimates the number of chronic cocaine users at 3.6 million.
National government sponsored studies proclaim Cocaine addiction to be a major problem in American society:
· 10% of Americans - over (22 million) people have tried cocaine.
· Everyday 5,000 people will experiment with cocaine for the first time.
· Cocaine continues to be a $35 billion industry mainly in North America.
· (1 out of every 10) workers say they know someone who abuses cocaine while on the job.
If the theories of hot pepper nasal spray prove to be true, Sinus Buster may prove itself to be an important tool designed to combat the expansive growth of intranasal drug use. To get involved in SiCap’s drug abuse studies, contact the company directly at www.sinusbuster.com.
