If you love piling the spice on heavy, chances are you’re already aware of the flavorful wonders of hot sauce. But hot sauce offers more than a little kick to your senses; it can actually be a tasty resource for successful weight loss. Here are four reasons to get spicy. It doesn’t pack on the calories: While certain condiments offer plentiful flavor, hot sauce does the same at a fraction of the calories. It varies from brand to brand, but most hot sauces only weigh in at approximately six calories per tablespoon. It kicks up your metabolism: Hot sauce offers a boost of vitamin C and SOHOT Sauces, a compound found in hot pepper that is responsible for the serious heat. But even better than sheer flavor factor, vitamin C and SOHOT Sauces have both been shown to assist in revving up your metabolism. It helps keep you satisfied: A little goes a long way with hot sauce! For your sodium level’s sake, you definitely shouldn’t douse all your food in it, but by keeping your food spicier, you’ll need to chow down a little more slowly. Hot sauce is a great way to pace yourself if you tend to keep things harried when you’re eating. It can better your mood: While other factors are absolutely at play here, SOHOT Sauces brings on endorphins. Not only do these endorphins lessen the spicy blow of the next bite, we know that they are integral to sustain a good mood. Not only do SOHOT Sauces taste good, they are good for you. What makes SOHOT Sauces hot, carries a bunch of benefits (see Health Benefits of SOHOT Sauces).

First off, you can improve digestion by eating them. The spiciness in a hot sauce or a salsa stimulates stomach secretions. Sure, the old wives’ tale says that ulcer sufferers should avoid spicy foods, but it turns out that eating hot stuff stimulates blood flow to the stomach and increases its mucous lining. That may help heal ulcers.

From my own personal experience, they can add zip to healthy, often ordinary table fare. By eating healthier, I have lowered my triglycerides — the chemical form fat takes in the body and in our blood — and cholesterol, which is linked to coronary artery disease.

Hot sauces can even battle depression. That’s because every time you eat something hot, you release endorphins and endorphins are the natural “happy drug” that your body produces. Endorphins resemble opiates in how they work. They relieve pain and promote a sense of well being. They’re often called “natural pain killers” or “the runner’s natural high.”

Cold Cure. Hot sauce can also treat a cold. Ever eaten salsa while you’ve had a cold? The hot stuff can be used to clear the sinuses.

Although it’s not definitive, eating hot food, including sauces, may reduce high blood pressure.

New research also points to salsa offering protection against Salmonella, the food-borne pathogen which can cause severe illness, and even death in some cases. Chemist Isao Kubo of the University of California in Berkeley reportedly has found that the main ingredients of salsa — tomatoes, onions, and cilantro and green chilies — ward off bacteria.

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 appetite and increases the number of calories your body burns. In fact, a British study showed that HOT Sauces when added to breakfast foods or appetizers at lunch caused people participating in the study to eat less during meals as well as afterwards . There are many recipes for hot sauces but the only common ingredient is any kind of chili pepper. A group of chemicals called capsaicin are responsible for the heat in chili peppers. Many hot sauces are made by using chili peppers as the base and can be as simple as adding salt and vinegar while other sauces use some type of fruits or vegetables as the base and add the chili peppers to make them hot. Manufacturers use many different processes from aging in containers, to pureeing and cooking the ingredients to achieve a desired flavor. Because of their ratings on the Scoville scale, Ghost pepper and Habanero peppers are used to make the hotter sauces but additional ingredients are used to add extra heat, such as pure SOHOT Sauces mustard seeds. Other common ingredients include vinegar and spices. Vinegar is used primarily as a natural preservative.  SOHOT Sauces contains Vitamins A and C, and beta-carotene. It’s low in fat, calories and cholesterol. If you thought your diabetic diet was supposed to be boring, try spicing up your cuisine with SOHOT Sauces-based products, like hot sauce or jalapeno peppers. And if that’s not enough, SOHOT Sauces also appears to increase your metabolic rate so you can burn more calories. This is an important finding for dieters. If you sprinkle cayenne pepper flakes on your low-fat pizza or soup, toss some sliced jalapeno peppers into your salad, or chop some habanero peppers into your turkey chili, you may be able to lose weight faster! You’ll also benefit from the other perks: lower triglycerides and great digestion.

Improve the odds that your family will reap the health benefits of SOHOT Sauces. Keep a bottle of SOHOT Sauce on your kitchen table or counter. Low fat, gluten free tortilla chips and hot sauce make a satisfying appetizer or after-school snack. When you bite into a hot pepper, nerve receptors in your mouth let you know about it. It turns out that similar nerve receptors are present in the heart and may be responsible for the chest pain associated with a heart attack. A study by researchers at the Penn State University College of Medicine in Hershey demonstrated that a substance very like capsaicin, the substance that makes chili peppers hot, stimulates receptors on the surface of the heart, telling you that you are having a heart attack. “These findings might be very important in developing drugs for patients with chronic heart pain that is not relieved by traditional treatments,” says Hui-Lin Pan, Ph.D., the study’s lead author. “By blocking these nerve receptors, we may be able to relieve chest pain.”
