About Brother Bru Bru

Like the pied piper, Brother Bru-Bru (Bruce Langhorne) played his gigantic Turkish tambourine as he walked through the streets of New York’s Greenwich Village.  Dubbed “Mr. Tambourine Man” by Bob Dylan, his music and joyous spirit enticed locals to come out and dance behind him. His carefree lifestyle caught up with him in his 50’s; a routine medical check-up revealed a severe case of high blood pressure, a common diagnosis for many African Americans. When his doctor told him to lose weight and, worse yet, sentenced him to a life term of salt-free food, he was devastated. Almost all his favorite hot sauces to which he was addicted were loaded with salt.

He was determined to put some joy back into his diet, so he started experimenting, researching, collecting and blending peppers and spices. Bru-Bru was a lover of African culture and music, having played with Hugh Masekela and Babatunde Olatunji among others. Well-traveled, he was familiar with many of the exotic flavors of the mother continent and started incorporating them into his emerging blend.

Brother Bru-Bru realized that he had fallen into an almost magical potion that would take your taste buds on an exotic journey, give you an intense, endorphin-pumping, habanero-powered heat rush, earn you the respect and admiration of your friends (for being able to endure so much heat) and make you healthy, all at the same time.

Prevent Risky Clots with Hot Peppers

“Jalapeño’s, habañeros, cayenne pepper, hot sauce. . . these flavor-boosters can do a lot more than just spice up your chili and nachos. According to University of Cincinnati researchers, capsaicin – the compound that gives these peppers their fiery heat – is a powerful anti-inflammatory that prevents the formation of blood clots in heart arteries.

“And Chinese studies show capsaicin also helps break down dietary fats before they can be converted into artery-clogging LDL cholesterol, cutting cholesterol surges (even after eating high-fat meals) as much as a whopping 57%.

“The study-proven dose: ¼ tsp. of the dried spices, 1 tsp. of a fiery sauce (Brother Bru Bru’s) or 1 Tbs. of fresh or pickled hot peppers daily.”
