7 possible Balsamic Vinegar Health Benefits for Weight Loss, Skin, and More

Balsamic Vinegar is a deep brown vinegar that’s made from unfermented grape juice. It’s known for having distinctive, bold, complex flavors and a smooth aftertaste. Real balsamic vinegar is aged in barrels for months or even years, and it can be quite expensive. Balsamic vinegar has become a popular ingredient in food preparations, especially salad dressings and marinades. People use it as a low-fat additive and part of a heart-healthy diet.

Some people believe that balsamic vinegar is good for you all by itself. It’s been suggested that balsamic vinegar can contribute to weight loss, low cholesterol, and even a glowing complexion.

It helps lower cholesterol

Of all of the benefits of balsamic vinegar, this one is perhaps the most well-documented. Balsamic vinegar is an excellent choice for those looking to maintain or lower their cholesterol levels. The antioxidants found in balsamic vinegar target the “scavenger cells” that are toxic to your body and inflate your LDL (unhealthy cholesterol) levels. By consuming balsamic vinegar as a dressing or glaze, you can consume enough to help your body protect itself against clogged arteries.

It aids in healthy digestion

The main active compound in balsamic vinegar is acetic acid, which contains strains of probiotic bacteria. These probiotics don’t just preserve food — they can also enable healthy digestion and improve gut health. There’s also positive immune system benefits to having these healthy bacteria called gut biome. The probiotic compounds in acetic acid could be part of the reason some people swear balsamic vinegar makes them feel full.

It supports weight loss

The vinegar family is known for its anti-obesity characteristics, and balsamic vinegar is no exception. As mentioned above, balsamic vinegar contains probiotic compounds that help you feel fuller, longer. Unlike other flavoring agents like butter and mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar is fat-free. Though it isn’t a magic weight loss potion, there’s reason to believe that incorporating balsamic vinegar into your diet will help you reach your weight loss goals.

It’s diabetes-friendly

Balsamic vinegar is an anti-glycemic. In a 2006 review, studies even indicated that after consuming vinegar, people with insulin resistance experience a blood sugar plateau for up to five hours. Using balsamic vinegar as a condiment can make your meals more diabetes-friendly, and help you avoid blood sugar spikes that happen after eating.

It improves blood circulation

Balsamic vinegar contains polyphenols, which are under investigation for how they help your cardiovascular system. You might not think about it often, but balsamic vinegar is a fruit product because it’s made from grapes. Grapes have been found to keep your blood platelets from aggregating, which may prevent cardiac diseases. This might be part of the reason why Mediterranean cultures have been using balsamic vinegar for centuries as a “healing” and “anti-aging” ingredient.

It may help with hypertension

Balsamic vinegar’s benefits for your cardiovascular system extend to your blood pressure, too. A laboratory study from 2001 revealed that rats with hypertension had better blood pressure after consuming vinegar over a long period of time. By consuming 1 to 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar as a dressing or marinade, you’re not only making your food more delicious — you’re helping your heart health, too.

It can improve your skin

Other types of vinegar, like apple cider vinegar, might appeal more as topical acne remedies because the smell of balsamic vinegar is quite pungent. The dark, stain-prone color of balsamic vinegar might also put you off from applying it directly to your face. But balsamic vinegar contains both acetic acid and antimicrobial compounds, as well as antioxidants. Consuming balsamic vinegar as part of your regular diet might make your skin look clearer and your complexion brighter.
