Saturday 07/17/2021 (jkzx.com/JakeZex.com) — Daily ingestion of vinegar with 5% acetic acid can result in weight loss, according to a study conducted by Tomoo Kondo from Mizkan Group Corporation in Aichi, Japan and colleagues.
Early studies have already shown that ingestion of acetic acid the main active ingredient in vinegar suppresses body fat accumulation in animals. The current study proved that acetic acid containing vinegar works also for human body to help weight loss.
Three groups of obese subjects with similar body weight, body mass index, and weight circumference were told to drink daily 500 ml of a beverage with 30 ml, or 15 ml, or zero ml of a vinegar. 30 ml of vinegar contains 1.6 grams acetic acid which is common in all sorts of vinegar. The trial lasted three months.
All measured parameters including body weight, body mass index, visceral fat, waist circumference, and serum triglyceride levels were significantly lower in the two groups ingesting vinegar. Those who drank 30 ml of vinegar or 1.5 grams of acetic acid per day during the treatment lost about 6.5 lbs of body weight.
The authors concluded that “daily intake of vinegar might be useful in the prevention of metabolic syndrome by reducing obesity.”
Acetic acid is known to provide a range of benefits. It can help weight loss, diabetes, heart disease, or even cancer.
Caution: Undiluted vinegar with 5% acetic acid can be too strong for most people. It should be diluted with water before ingested. Acetic acid is highly erosive and can damage tooth easily. So you should not drink undiluted vinegar. (Dr. Lu)
根據日本愛知縣 Mizkan Group Corporation 的 Tomoo Kondo 及其同事進行的一項研究，每天攝入含有 5% 醋酸的醋可導致體重減輕。
三組具有相似體重、體重指數和體重圍的肥胖受試者被告知每天喝 500 毫升飲料和 30 毫升、15 毫升或 0 毫升醋。 30毫升醋中含有1.6克醋酸，醋酸在各種醋中都很常見。審判持續了三個月。
攝入醋的兩組的所有測量參數，包括體重、體重指數、內臟脂肪、腰圍和血清甘油三酯水平都顯著降低。那些在治療期間每天喝 30 毫升醋或 1.5 克醋酸的人體重減輕了約 6.5 磅。
注意：對於大多數人來說，用 5% 醋酸未經稀釋的醋可能太濃了。食用前應用水稀釋。醋酸具有很強的腐蝕性，很容易損壞牙齒。所以你不應該喝未稀釋的醋。
