Goodness of vinegar
Source: New Straits Times, December 14, 2010
   
 

A spoonful or two of vinegar a day may boost the level of good cholesterol.  Researchers believe that those who consume apple cider vinegar for 8 weeks  will have improved levels of good or HDL cholesterol compared with those given a placebo. 

Apple cider vinegar, a common kitchen remedy for arthritis and gout, has already been shown to lower blood sugar levels and reduce appetite.

A separate study based on animals with diabetes has already shown that apple cider vinegar lowered levels of bad cholesterol and improved good cholesterol.
