Hot Chilli sauce boosts your metabolism for hours after you eat it, which can help with weight management and the prevention of obesity, as noted in a medical journal article. Further, an animal study published in the February 2013 issue of the "European Journal of Nutrition" indicates that eating a meal with hot sauce reduces levels of Ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates hunger. At the same time, it raises levels of GLP-1, which is an appetite-suppressing hormone. As such, by spicing your food with hot sauce, you may take in fewer calories than you otherwise would and better manage your weight. Brilliant!
Antioxidants and Nutrition
Antioxidants, such as vitamins A and C, are man-made or natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. Antioxidants also work to eliminate oxidative stress in the body, which is a major factor in aging. Furthermore, there is good evidence that eating a diet rich in antioxidants is healthy and lowers risks of certain diseases. Hot sauce is a source of vitamin C, which is necessary for the production of collagen, a protein required to help wounds heal. Hot sauce contains vitamin A, folate, magnesium and potassium, so it imparts more nutritional value to your food.
