Study Shows Vinegar Stimulates Immune Cells

Excerpt:

Some of the research discussed pointed to possible dietary interventions to improve health. Dr. Wendy Garrett, an immunologist at the Harvard School of Public Health, described how dietary compounds called short-chain fatty acids – the best-known of which is acetic acid, the main component of vinegar – stimulate certain microbes in the gut that in turn stimulate production of immune cells, called regulatory T-cells, that suppress inflammation.
