Have high blood pressure? Enjoy hot sauce!

I have hot sauce every day – and my high blood pressure is gone!

Salt in 1 tsp hot sauce = 85 mg; salt in Big Mac = 1040 mg!

People with high blood pressure and/or African Americans should only take in 1500 mg daily.  One Big Mac almost takes care of that.  But I bet you can’t eat 17 teaspoons of hot sauce a day.

Now some folks don’t like spicy food.  But others might like it, but avoid hot sauce because “it has too much salt.”  Not!

Hot sauce reduces appetite and speeds metabolism – a winning combination.
