Can you use red wine vinegar to detox?

Can you use red wine vinegar to detox?

What is detox?: In the sense that doctors say "detox", no, vinegar does not accelerate removal of any toxins out of the body. There is also "cosmetic" detox which no one (including its practitioners) ever tried to test for any effect whatsoever.

No: Before and after it ruptures / resolves without rupturing, soap and water. Remember it's a battleground between your white cells and some bacteria that got an advantage. Consider a trial of benzoyl peroxide even if you do not have bad acne.

Can drinking red wine vinegar burn fat?

Can drinking red wine vinegar burn fat?

Not really: First, drinking large amounts of vinegar can lead to possibly severe kidney damage, so do not drink more than what you would put on a salad or in a recipe at one time. As a small about as a dietary supplement, it has been hypothesized that vinegar supplements can burn endogenous stores of fats, but it does not. It may be healthy in small amounts and break up undigested fats, but does not burn fat.

Antioxidants...: Red wine has been shown to be beneficial for health-likely due to the antioxidants that are found in the skin of the grapes. This is not a reason to start drinking wine if you don't drink alcohol. Excessive alcohol consumption certainly has risks that outweigh the benefits. If you want antioxidants, you are better off eating a spinach salad with vegetables than drinking wine.

Some scientific studies say red wine 1 glass is good for health! Some say any alcohol is bad! What's truth? How can it be science if its conflicting?

Some scientific studies say red wine 1 glass is good for health! Some say any alcohol is bad! What's truth? How can it be science if its conflicting?

This is a great: Example of how many things in life, especially health, are not totally black or white in spite of applying a rigorous scientific method. Best evidence to date suggests that red wine contains substances, i.e. reservatrol that are healthy. Medical guidelines say 1 drink a day for men/2 for women is fine. Those who say "drink nothing" worry folks can't stop there and are at risk for alcoholism. Stay well

Can you drink any kind of alcohol beverage to maintain good health or is it limited to 1 glass of red wine?

Can you drink any kind of alcohol beverage to maintain good health or is it limited to 1 glass of red wine?

Little impact: This old story is typical of the problems that are caused by retrospective studies -- self-reports without the possibility of controlling for other variables. Different studies give very different results. The hoopla a few years ago about something magic in red wine itself turned out to be fueled by fraudulent research. Stay healthy by proven methods & make ur alcohol / wine decisions to please u.

Will the antioxidants in red wine help offset the liver damage from the alcohol?

Will the antioxidants in red wine help offset the liver damage from the alcohol?

Not in any...: ...Significant way. If you get the same damage from 10 glasses of wine as from 9 shots of vodka, I don't call that a major protective effect.

What are the associations between Parkinson's disease and alcohol consumption? Are there compounds in red wine and beer that are helpful in preventing pd?

What are the associations between Parkinson's disease and alcohol consumption? Are there compounds in red wine and beer that are helpful in preventing pd?

Parkinson's disease: There is no protective effect from alcohol in parkinson's disease. There is a protective effect from caffeine and cigarette smoking. Obviously, this information perhaps suggests that one of the hundred toxins from cigarette smoking may have neuroprotective properties. This does not keep me from providing smoking cessation counseling to all my patients. For the moment, I just do my morning coffee.

Does 1 glass of red wine (250 ml, 14.5% alcohol) taken everyday causes liver damage in a young healthy individual? I drink lots of water.

Seems ok: Red wine in moderate amounts like a glass a day is tolerated by one with normal liver function. If you're really concerned have your physician order a battery of liver function tests. You are averaging 3 glasses a day.
