Lose Weight with Black Vinegar By Taking It Three Times A Day Every Day vs Adding It To Your Daily Diet

Edited by Donna, Eng

A bottle of mature black vinegar.

Black vinegar, also sold as Mature Vinegar, is a rich black color, like soya sauce, but its taste is more like balsamic vinegar. It is made from a mixture of rice, sorghum, bran, millet peas and wheat chaff. It has a very strong, yet pleasant smoky flavor. There is a lighter form of Black Vinegar, made from rice only, but it is too glycemic and high in sodium to help with weight loss. Aged mature black vinegar is richer in texture and contains enzymes; nutrients and fermented ingredients that help you get off the pounds.

The best way to tell the difference between mature black vinegar and other types is to look on the label at the ingredients. The labels on many black vinegar bottles will also tell you where it is made. The black vinegar that is effective for weight loss is made in the Shanxi Province. If the vinegar is made in the city of Zheniang or called Chinkiang vinegar, it may not be effective for weight loss. The light black vinegar known as Kurozu is also not as effective for weight loss as Mature Vinegar made in the Shanxi Province.

Chinkiang Vinegar is the type of black vinegar that is not as effective for weight loss.

Black vinegar helps you lose weight because:

  • It alkalinizes your blood and tissues, helping your body to get rid of sodium, which in turn prevents bloating and the gathering of abdominal fat
  • It lowers cholesterol levels and fat lipid in the bloodstream, improving your overall vascular health and ability to exercise and lose weight
  • Black vinegar helps lower your blood pressure, which in turn lowers physical stress and the overproduction of cortisol that can cause weight gain
  • It is rich in the amino acids that your body needs to build muscle, and the more muscle that you have, the better able your body is to expend calories, even when you are not exercising
  • The amino acids in the black vinegar are also very good for the skin and may prevent the sagging skin and stretch marks that sometimes accompany weight loss.
  • It contains acetic acid, which is antibacterial, cleansing and helps your body dispel toxins and poisons that could cause issues with your metabolism
  • It is a natural diuretic that helps flush toxins and fat out of your body
  • The citric acid in black vinegar is a natural blocker of starch, which helps regulates your blood sugar and inhibit the absorption of fat
  • The citric acid and amino acids in black vinegar reduce fatigue and make it easier for you to lose weight faster
