1. Hot Sauce Helps Lose Weight

Capsaicin can increase your metabolic rate, capsaicin is commonly found in peppers of any kind. It is also very low calorie and is often zero calorie. A great tasting condiment without the calories!

5. Hot Sauce Can Reduce the Risk of Cancer

"By attacking cell mitochondria, the capsaicin in hot sauce can trigger the self-destruction of harmful cancer cells without hurting healthy cells. Hot sauce may be able to reduce risk of cancer development and cancerous cell growth by triggering apoptotic cell death, researchers say." (Lalond, 2017)

6. Hot Sauce Can Reduce Aches/Pain

Capsaicin contains anti-inflammatory properties, this helps muscles mend and aches fade!

7. Hot Sauce Can Reduce Stress/Depression

Spicy foods can promote the production of serotonin and other similar hormones

All in all lets just say hot sauce is great! If you're new to the hot sauce game I recommend Cholula, Sriracha, Tapatio, Crystal, Reds, and Texas Pete as starters. The flavors are there without the heat, however I will recommend a personal favorite (Scorpion Tabasco) if you want intense heat because the Scorpion Pepper is one of the hottest peppers in the world!
