5 health benefits of vinegar

Used as a natural remedy since the ancient Greeks, it enjoys such a reputation that science is beginning to take a keen interest in it.

A study conducted in people with type 2 diabetes has shown that vinegar (from cider, wine, etc.) could be an ally of choice for lowering blood sugar. It appears that the acetic acid it contains slows down the digestion of carbohydrates and increases the absorption of glucose. The amount of sugar in the blood would, therefore, be less after a meal containing a little vinegar.

In some people, the mouth is too acidic, favorable to gingivitis (inflammation of the oral mucosa). However, once assimilated by the metabolism, vinegar softens this acidity. It can, therefore, be used as a rinsing product, after washing your teeth in the evening. As long as it is used punctually and always diluted: two tablespoons of organic cider vinegar in half a glass of water. It also decreases the production of tartar but endangers the enamel in too frequent doses.
