A spoonful of vinegar a day could keep the doctor away

A recent clinical trial conducted in Minnesota in the U.S has found that consuming a small amount of apple cider vinegar everyday could help to improve cholesterol levels.

The trial, which is still ongoing has been looking at 120 individuals, half of whom are to consume apple cider vinegar for eight weeks whilst the other half will be given a placebo (2 per cent balsamic vinegar solution in water).

Once the eight week trial period is over, researchers believe that those who consumed the cider vinegar for eight weeks will have an improved HDL cholesterol compared to those given a placebo.

Apple cider vinegar is commonly used in the kitchen and is also an age old remedy for arthritis and gout as well as being found to reduce blood sugar levels and appetite.

A completely separate study based on animals with diabetes, found that apple cider vinegar lowered levels of bad cholesterol whilst improving good cholesterol.
