It boosts your circulation
Hot sauce acts as a general stimulant, increasingly blood flow to the stomach, elevating your heart rate, and generally adding zing to every system in your body. This is why Sriracha-covered wings don’t spell naptime -- you just ate the food equivalent of a run around the block.
It makes you live longer
While the burn itself, however dramatic, lasts no more than 15 minutes, numerous studies show that the mega dose of vitamin C in capsaicin and perhaps, maybe, all of the above, lead to generally increased lifespans among hot sauce lovers (we’re talking dousing your food in hot sauce four times a week). Which is all to say… pass that bottle of mouth magma.
