Food Facts

Vinegar may boost fat burning. Obese people who got one to two tablespoons of vinegar a day burned significantly more bodyfat than subjects who didn’t get vinegar. That makes oil and vinegar the best salad dressing for dieters.

Vitamin D may cure minor aches and pains. Studies show that people who are low in D have more chronic pain—from bones to back to joints. Getting more sunshine—or a vitamin D supplement—may just cure what ails you.

Olive oil may relieve joint pain and stiffness, according to a Brazilian study. A high intake of olive oil may reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis by more than 60 percent—another reason to favor oil and vinegar dressing.

Pycnogenol, an antioxidant from French maritime pine bark, relieves symptoms of hemorrhoids, a condition that affects one in two people by the age of 50. Both oral and topical treatments were effective in the Italian study.

Spirulina, an algae supplement, can boost fat metabolism by more than 10 percent, say Greek researchers. You may be seeing it in fat-loss potions in the near future.
