PHEW, IS THAT VINEGAR?

As per the chicas at Natural Solutions, here are useful tips for the use of vinegar...

Make Mine Vinegarade
Good news for dieters—now there’s a simple drink that can make you eat less and control your sugar cravings. And chances are you have some in your cupboard already. A recent study from Lund University in Sweden shows that using more vinegar to season your food or even drinking vinegar mixed in water with a meal reduces the body’s insulin response during digestion, which is important for tempering sugar cravings and avoiding weight gain. The subjects of the study fasted overnight and ate white bread along with a glass of water containing varying amounts of vinegar. Those who drank the most vinegar (about 2 to 3 tablespoons) had glucose and insulin responses about 25 percent lower 90 minutes after the meal and felt more full than those who didn’t consume any vinegar with their meal. —Sarah Forbes Keough

Another good use for vinegar:
If you have heartburn, take a tablespoon (or about 1/2 a shot) of it and it will make your heartburn disappear. Who knew?! It burns like hell going down, but it feels like it's burning the heartburn away. Chile, it's true!

Until next time... be healthy and,

Be Seen at the Top!
