Acetic acid upregulates the genes for fatty acid oxidation to suppress body fat accumulation.

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

"We investigated the effect of acetic acid (AcOH) on the prevention of obesity in high-fat-fed mice."


"In conclusion, AcOH supresses accumulation of body fat and liver lipids by upregulation of genes for PPARalpha and fatty-acid-oxidation-related proteins By alpha2 AMPK mediation in the liver."

    I'm glad my diet is not high-fat.

    Have you looked at lemon juice and apple cider vinegar, the fact that the acids are metabolised into high pH ash at the cellular level, which helps you be alkaline? When you are acidic your cells must hold onto fat; it's a matter of survival, to buffer the acid. When you are alkaline, the body can release fat, kill cancer and fungus, etc.

    I wonder if this is why I crave vinegary salad dressings...

    SO, vinegar helps to reduce fat? Interesting. The abstract was enough of a read for me. Pretty technical stuff.
