Central Research Institute staff have recently launched a study that examines the impact of how acetic acid can protect humans from the detrimental impacts of obesity caused by the consumption of fatty foods. The study was done on mice, and they found that the mice that were giving apple cider vinegar (the main consumption method of acetic acid), did not experience an increase in overall body mass. This indicates that the routine consumption of apple cider vinegar can ultimately contribute to preventing obesity, helping patients avoid early mortality rates.
- It is well known fact that obesity is a health problem that is growing globally and it is exacerbated by the increasing amounts of fats in modern diets.
- Japanese researchers who gave apple cider vinegar to mice that were given fatty foods found out that the treatment made the mice less prone to accumulating fats and lipids.
- Apple cider vinegar is made by crushing apples then fermenting the juice obtained with Acetobacter bacteria and yeast.
“Researchers from the Central Research Institute (CRI) looked into the effect of acetic acid on the processes that convert food into body fat and lipids. They simulated obesity in humans by constructing a mouse model.”
