OK. DOWN THE HATCH.Gross. I hope this works. Hey there health nuts and internet crazers,Trace here for DNews. There are broad claims regarding the efficacy of apple cider vinegar'spower to curb appetite, burn fat, cure rashes, stop heartburn, bring down fever, and cureasthma, treat wounds, reduce the effects of aging, and even cure diseases like cancer!Is this a miracle drugé! No. It's not. Butâ€¦ that doesn't mean it's bunk.what is ithow it's made Vinegar is a derivative of alcoholic beverages.To make their bottled delights, winemakers ferment grapes with yeast. The yeast eat sugarfrom the grapes and poop out alcohol! Yum!
To make vinegar is the same, but acetobacterbacteria is added to wine! The bacteria eats the alcohol and poops out acetic acid. Aceticacid is what make vinegar, vinegar! The word vinegar comes from French for sour wine, althoughit can be made from wine, beer, rice, or other fermentables like wood. Apple cider vinegaris made with you guessed it, double fermented apple cider. Apples to hard cider to applecider vinegar. Personal note: why did y'all mess up a good thingéwhat's special about ité According to the USDA apple cider vinegarcontains none of the vitamins A, B6, C, E, or K, and no niacin, riboflavin, thiamin,pantothenic acid or folate. What it DOES contain,
according to the FDA, is a minimum of 4% aceticacid, and a lot of water. This means vinegar (or acetic acid) likely won't make you thinner,and there's no scientific support of it as a skin toner. And when Medscape General Medicine conducteda review of the research on vinegar, they found it was not recommended as an antiinfectiousmedicine orally or topically, and probably doesn't fight hypertension. And in terms ofits cancerfighting claims, while it did shrink leukemia cells and tumors in lab experiments,but that affect hasn't been shown in humans at all.does acetic acid have any special properties
(yes)Now a 2015 study in PlosONE did find small concentrations of acetic acid can help reducebacterial growth on surfaces and PubChem lists acetic acid as having mild antibacterial andantifungal properties, which is why vinegar can be used as a mild household cleanserâ€¦But putting vinegar on your face is probably not the best idea. Pimples are bacterial infectionsof the sebaceous glands, so it might decrease bacterial load there. However, it's not recommendedby any real scientific research. Though, I did find a 1916 book for nurses that recommendedvinegar as a treatment for acne, but it also advised putting mercury on your face.so what about ingesting vinegaré
Drinking vinegar was studied far more often.Acids are known boosters of mineral absorption, so a tiny bit of vinegar on a green leafysalad can help our digestive systems absorb more calcium from the leaves than we wouldnaturally! And, a 2004 study of 11 people with Type 2 diabetes found when participantsconsumed a tiny bit of vinegar they had higher sensitivity to insulin that's a good thing.And though this study was too small to generalize to all humans, research is ongoing and isreally positive! The thing is, don't drink too much. Vinegar is an acid and will damagethe throat and stomach lining and erode teeth. There's a reason it's diluted. And speakingof deludedâ€¦ if you leave vinegar alone,
the same bacteria that fermented the alcoholto turn it to vinegar will eventually grow a massive colony which some call a mother.Yep, acetobacter bacteria grows into kombucha, eventually. There you go crunchy greeny birkenstockwearersâ€¦go be friends. wrapLook, swapping vinegar into salads and foods instead of using creams or salts will notonly help you suck in more minerals but keeps you from eating unhealthy stuff! Winwin! but if you're interesting in drinking thepremade ACV derivative, kombucha, maybe you should learn about that first in this tutorialWTF is Kombuchaé
