Health Benefits of Vinegar

Saturday, 08 November 2014 00:00  by Charity B.

As part of mood disorder, substance abuse and depression treatment, women at Brookhaven Retreat meet individually with a registered dietitian to assess their dietary needs and learn how to use food and a healthy diet to benefit not only our physical health, but also our emotional and mental health.

Vinegar is a staple ingredient in many household kitchens. From homemade barbeques to zesty salad dressing, here is a guide to choosing vinegars that provide the best flavor and optimal health.

Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is toted as being a natural cure for a wide variety of illness. It may help increase the “good” HDL cholesterol, and contains the polyphenol, chlorogenic acid, which can help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels. Due to its acetic acid content, apple cider vinegar has anti-microbial properties, and is used to fight infection and boost the immune system.

Balsamic vinegar
The phytonutrient, quercetin, found in grape-based vinegars like balsamic, may help lower blood pressure, according to research in the Journal of Nutrition. Apple-based vinegars also contain quercetin.

Rice vinegar
Vinegars contain phenols, which some preliminary research indicates may reduce the risk of cancer. Kurosu, a type of rice vinegar, particularly contains a lot of these potent plant compounds.

Raspberry vinegar
Vinegar may even help with weight loss. The acetic acid can suppress your appetite, increase metabolism and reduce water retention. Several human studies showed a reduction in caloric intake, appetite, reduced belly fat, waist circumference and even weight loss of ~2.5 and 3.5 pounds in 12 weeks with daily consumption of either 1 or 2 Tbsp of vinegar.
