Vinegar tonic: Vinegar belongs to the class of high nutrient foods that have strong detoxifying health properties. Although formal research has not provided ample support for this, many empiric traditions of medicine support its health benefits especially when taken daily like other tonics such as astralagus. I use a couple teaspoons with olive oil and sea salt for a tangy home made salad dressing.
