Losing Weight

This Thai sauce is made up of red chili peppers, the ones that have capsaicin. This compound is responsible for the sauce’s distinct flavor and it also boosts metabolism making it ideal for those who want to lose weight.

Capsaicin helps the body to burn more calories as a faster rate. It also suppresses your appetite to help you feel fuller.
