The Spice Diet


Not only do most hot sauces taste good, they are good for you. Capsaicin, what makes chili sauces and salsas hot, carries a bunch of benefits.

The spiciness in a hot sauce or a salsa stimulates stomach secretions, so it can help improve digestion. This is contrary to what we’ve all heard – that people who suffer from stomach issues should avoid spicy food.

The fact is that spices stimulate blood flow to the stomach, which then increases its mucous lining, which may actually help heal stomach ailments like ulcers.

For people who have to lower their cholesterol or triglycerides, hot sauce can help them stay in line with their diet by adding flavor to what would otherwise be tasteless food.

There are studies that also suggest that eating hot food may also help reduce high-blood pressure, although these are not definitive.

Hot Sauce Diet

In addition, hot sauces can even help battle depression. Yes, believe it or not, eating spicy food helps you release endorphins, and endorphins are the natural “happy drug” that your body produces.

Finally, wanna’ lose weight? Pile on the hot sauce. Hot sauces may boost your metabolic rate and can help you eat less and feel satisfied. In other words, it suppresses the appetite and increases the number of calories your body burns.

That is GREAT news for all of us who love MEXICAN FOOD and HOT SAUCES! So, bring your hot sauce wherever you go because, YES YOU CAN eat it.
