Vinegar and health
Vinegar and health. Vinegar has endless properties and just drinking a table spoon of vinegar in the morning, before breakfast, can be very beneficial. Vinegar contains some phenols derivatives: hence its anti-carcinogenic effect and role in “stabilising” vitamins E and C. Moreover, vinegar quenches the thirst, reduces fever, prevents infections and relieves inflammation. Soak a lump of sugar in vinegar, chew it slowly to stop hiccups and relieve whooping cough. Vinegar also disinfects small sores and surface burns. Clears a stuffy nose and relieves the headache when there is stale air in the room. It is also recommended for insect bites and jellyfish stings.
