The hot sauce craze has only gotten hotter in recent years thanks to the rising popularity of cult-favorite Sriracha. While we can’t deny the appeal of it’s deliciously spicy flavor, with preservatives, fillers, and non-organic ingredients, Sriracha may leave you feeling not-so-hot.
That’s why we decided to start offering free organic hot sauce at all of our Organic Avenue locations.
Whether you’re a Sriracha fan or loyal to another brand of spice, using our hot sauce will give you more benefits than just spicing up your food.
Most hot sauces get their kick from mature peppers which contain capsaicin in the interior white flesh surrounding the seeds of the pepper. Capsaicin has potent medicinal qualities known to reduce inflammation and increase circulation in the body.
It has been also been studied as a potential cancer treatment for its ability to deactivate a certain protein that encourages tumor growth. This is especially significant for cases of prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men. Capsaicin may also help with common side effects of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation such as itching and mouth sores.
Additionally, capsaicin can help boost your metabolism and promote wight loss by raising body temperature and reducing your appetite. Even Hillary Clinton swears by the power of spicy peppers and has used them as part of her healthy diet for over 20 years.
The ripened red jalapenos found in the organic hot sauce now available at all Organic Avenue locations contain vitamin A, C, and K as well as minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper. These nutrients aid your body in multiple ways such as building healthier tissue, bones and younger-looking skin.
