Most of the foods you love to eat turn out to be bad for you (looking at you, bacon). Thankfully, hot sauce isn't one of them. In fact, hot sauce lovers might even be smarter than someone who refuses to touch a bottle of Frank's.

Your spicy obsession isn’t just proof of your non-dumbassness; hot sauce has a whole smorgasbord of health benefits that’ll have you replacing your morning cereal with Tabasco in no time (note: that's probably a bad idea).
