Your favorite, hotter-than-hell hot sauce stings like the devil and tastes like heaven. It’ll also trigger an endorphin release like a god.
It also makes you look like a super hero in front of your friends (and, more importantly, your adversaries).
But, there are probably a few things you didn’t know.
It keeps vampires at bay
Okay – it doesn’t really. It does however increase saliva production which is your natural breath freshener. That means you can chow all the garlic you want and that keeps vampires away.
Plus, super hot sauce and garlic are like best friends (just see how many people love sriracha), you can always mix the two for top results.
It stops you from scratching
Mix some coconut oil with your favorite hot sauce. (Use your least favorite and keep the best for eating). Rub this into mosquito bites before you scratch them open with your nails.
It’ll burn a bit at first, but your brain will take that as the dominant issue to deal with and you won’t feel the urge to itch. Plus, you’ll get that endorphin release and that’s always a plus.
It kills fungi
No, you can’t pour hot sauce on a mushroom and watch it disappear before your eyes. (Well…. If you’re standing in front of a mirror and you eat the hot sauce covered mushroom, that probably qualifies.)
The capsaicin found in chili peppers and hot sauces is a natural antifungal, so it goes to work on candida and other fungal infections. In case you’re wondering, it’s also useful against viral infections like colds.
It’ll relieve pain, even as it causes pain
Hot sauce won’t burn a hole in your throat, so you may as well gargle with diluted hot sauce (dilute it in water for heaven’s sake, not the vodka you’re thinking about). This’ll actually relieve your sore throat. Not only will you get those endorphins, but you’ll be killing off the little nasties troubling your throat.
It should go without saying, but don’t snort hot sauce to clear your nose when you have a cold. You’re more likely to drown on the hot sauce than to relieve any pressure.
