    Vinegar is more than just a great cleaning product,
    grandma used it as medicine and I still do for colds & flu symptoms.
    A few of the health benefits:

    * Reduce sinus infections and sore throats (I even swab my nose with it, yuk but works)
    * Balance high cholesterol
    * Cure skin conditions such as acne
    * Protect against food poisoning
    * Fight allergies in both humans and animals
    * Prevent muscle fatigue after exercise
    * Strengthen the immune system
    * Increase stamina
    * Increase metabolism which promotes weight loss
    * Improve digestion and cure constipation
    * Alleviate symptoms of arthritis and gout
    * Prevents bladder stones and urinary tract infections

    Oh, and it's especially effective on a bad tooth/gum infection.
    Mix some Curcumin (Tumeric) with a teaspoon of vinegar and swish a minute.
    It will reduce the inflammation. kill the bacteria, and reduce pain.
    Try it, you won't like it, but the results are worth it.

    Thanks for the added information very informative. I hadn't heard of the bad tooth one though. You are very up on all this stuff it would appear! [​IMG]

    That is all I use for cleaning, Vinegar plus some baking soda. The other cleaners are too dangerous in my opinion.

    Thanks for the post. I use vinegar a lot, too. I think it's a natural alternative to all the strong chemical cleaners out there, which often leave a biting smell. Eek. Some natural cleaning products combine vinegar/lemon extracts and other natural substances that can help to keep the house clean.

    All the health advantages are new to me, so thanks to you for those, Just2EZ!

    When I want to take vinegar as a health supplement I use a tablespoon of cider vinegar (organic if poss) in a cup of warm water with a teaspoon of honey. Mmmm!
    Which reminds me - must go and take some now, I'm hoping it will help with the inflammation in my frozen shoulder.[​IMG]

    Yes, there are many great benefits but I just hate the smell of it.
