There are so many reasons why we love hot sauce. Believe it or not, one of them is that spicy foods can be very healthy. Here are some benefits:
Spicy foods may keep your heart healthy
Studies show that cultures that eat the most spicy food have much lower incidence of heart attack and stroke. Possibly due to the fact that Chili peppers can reduce the damaging effects of LDL (bad cholesterol) and capsaicin may fight inflammation, which has been flagged as a risk factor for heart issues.
Spicy foods may promote weight loss and kick-start your metabolism
The extra kick of hot sauce or a chopped jalapeno can make even the most bland diet food more palatable, causing you to be more likely to stick with your weight loss plan. In addition, they may jack up your metabolism. Studies show that the main compound in chilies, called capsaicin, has a thermogenic effect and may cause the body to burn bonus calories for 20 minutes post chow-down.
Lower Blood Pressure
Vitamins A and C strengthen the heart muscle walls, and the heat of the pepper increases blood flow throughout your body. All of this equals a stronger cardiovascular system.
