Red Chilli sauce

The spicy properties of the chillies in hot sauce have been shown to help beat off the symptoms of colds and flu by easing sinus and nasal congestion, increasing body temperature, and relieving respiratory problems. And so should you, because according to two top pepper experts, hot sauce is healthy. That's largely thanks to capsaicin the active ingredient in peppers which has shown antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects in lab studies. Chili sauce is a condiment that adds spice and flavor to anything from Asian recipes to Western favorites. It can be used as a wonderful dip for finger foods of all kinds or a side sauce to add more spice to food. It provides more of a kick than adding just salt and pepper.
