2. May aid weight loss

Vinegar compounds used for alleged therapeutic benefits, such as an antibiotic, detoxification, and scurvy treatment, while apple cider vinegar has recently gained recognition for its potential in weight loss.

3. May reduce belly fat

Acetic acid has shown to reduce body fat accumulation in animal studies and in a 12-week study of obese men who consumed acetic acid-rich vinegar.

4. cholesterol

While animal studies suggest ACV may improve blood triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood pressure, there is currently insufficient evidence to support its recommendation in humans.
