Keeps you satisfied. Adding spice to just one meal that contains capsaicin — the compound that gives hot chile peppers sauce their heat — not only reduces levels of hunger-causing ghrelin, but also raises an appetite-suppressing hormone, GLP-1. Scientists found that people who drank capsaicin-spiced tomato juice before each meal over 2 days ingested 16 percent fewer calories than those who drank it plain.
Boosts your metabolism. Hot sauce picks up more than the heat in your mouth, it revs up your metabolism. Researchers have found that the capsaicin and vitamin C found in hot peppers assist in boosting your metabolism --helping you to burn more calories.
Improves your mood. Capsicum brings on endorphins, helping to elevate your mood. Not only that, but these endorphins help to reduce the impact of your next spicy bite.
Low in calories. Hot sauces deliver a high bang for you buck when it comes to delivering flavor but not a ton of calories. Each brand varies, but hot sauces typically only have about 6 calories per tablespoon. Now that is a great way to liven up your diet food!
