Worldwide research confirms what ancient medicine men (and women) have claimed over the ages
The feared Samurai believed in the supernatural powers of vinegar and would ingest a special vinegar-elixir to make them practically invincible.
Scientific research shows that vinegar is a natural resource of vitamins and minerals, has more than 93 nutritive substances, and successfully battles numerous types of pain and ailments. One spoonful of vinegar contains: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nutrients, pectin, beta-carotene and much more.
Did you know that vinegar, added to fruit juice, can ease the pains of arthritis and other reumatic conditions?
More than 70 independent studies show that betacarotene diminishes the risk of cancer and stimulates the immune system. Pectin helps lowering the cholesterol levels and helps decreasing the risk of cardio-vascular diseases.
Stave off high blood sugar and other Alzheimer’s risk factors with a daily dose of vinegar
According to researchers, there is evidence that vinegar sinks risk factors that may lead to memory decline and dementia — namely, high blood sugar, insulin resistance, diabetes and prediabetes, and weight gain. While vinegar does not confront Alzheimer’s directly, studies at Arizona State University have found that vinegar can curb appetite and food intake, helping prevent weight gain and obesity. Swedish investigators agree.
In one study, downing two or three tablespoons of vinegar with white bread cut expected rises in insulin and blood sugar by about 25 percent. Pour on the vinegar — add it to salad dressings, eat it by the spoonful, even mix it into a glass of drinking water. Any type of vinegar works because it’s the acidity that counts.
