This common kitchen item is a healthy wonder...

The Egyptians knew all about it's health benefits. Even Christopher Columbus brought barrels of it during his "re-discovery" of the New World for treating scurvy. Indeed, vinegar has uses that would probably make it equally at home in an apothecary's shop as well as in the kitchen. Here are some interesting facts about this sour but healthful liquid...

  • Vinegar has both antibiotic and antiseptic properties. In fact, as far back as the ancient Egyptians, vinegar was already used for cleansing wounds.

  • Vinegar has many vitamins and minerals. Apple cider vinegar C, E, A, P, B1, B2 and B6. It also has manganese, iron, calcium, sodium, magnesium, sulphur, copper, phosphorous, silicon, chlorine and flourine.

  • Believe it or not, vinegar has fiber. Because of this, it has been proven useful in lowering cholesterol. It's also useful in lowering glucose levels for those suffering from diabetes.

  • In need of a blood thinner? Well, if you don't have aspirin handy, try drinking vinegar. Vinegar thins the blood and as such, helps lower blood pressure.

  • People suffering often from sore throat may want to alleviate their condition by gargling with vinegar. Just mix vinegar with hot water and gargle one's sore throat away.

  • Need to lose a few pounds? Well, some people swear with the weight-lowering properties of vinegar. Although it still remains a mystery as to how, some people think that it's because vinegar hastens metabolism. How to do it? Just mix 2 tablespoons of vinegar with water and drink before meals.

  • During summer, be sure to bring along a bottle of vinegar with you when visiting the beach. It might come handy for jellyfish stings and the like. It seems that vinegar deactivates the jellyfish cells which allows manual removal of tentacles.

  • Women take note! Vinegar has been proven to be as reliable in determining cancerous cells in the cervix as the more common pap tests. Indeed, swabbing vinegar on the cervix actually turns cancerous cells white.

  • Lastly, vinegar can also be a daily health drink. The local "sukang irok: (sugar palm vinegar or kaong) can be mixed with honey (another natural product with health benefits), water (or crushed ice) for a healthful and refreshing drink come summertime!
