Vinegar has been used since ancient times as a zesty seasoning and a healthy tonic to relieve fatigue, help digestion and aid in weight loss. Today, vinegar is being rediscovered for its potential to help prevent and treat a wide range of conditions. In "The Healing Powers of Vinegar", health journalist Cal Orey tells the remarkable story of vinegar, a time-honored folk remedy and modern health wonder. Written in a lively and easy-to-read style, this book traces the origins of vinegar lore to ancient Greece and Egypt, and then follows its history to the present day. Quoting from leading alternative health practitioners as well as medical researchers, Orey describes the latest research about vinegar's cutting-edge nutrients, including:
-- A new class of antioxidants found in red wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar that slows down blood clotting and inhibits cancer-forming carcinogens
-- A powerful class of nutrients found in red wine vinegar that helps fight allergies and viruses as well as reduce cholesterol levels
-- Amino acids -- for memory loss and anti-aging
-- Enzymes -- for digestive disorders and poor metabolism
-- Minerals -- to prevent bone diseases such as osteoporosis, prevent strokes, treat anemia and fatigue, as well as lower high blood pressure and high cholesterol
-- Ingredients that suppress appetite and aid weight loss
