Health Benefits of Vinegar
Hi Doc,

Hope that you are doing well. I just wanted to find out whether Balsamic Vinegar has any health benefits with regard to the digestive system? I have IBS and was wondering if eating olive oil with Balsamic Vinegar on salad would help my IBS improve?

Many thanks,

Dear Mands
Thank you I am fine and I hope you are ok too. I have not read any scientific papers about balsamic vinegar or any other vinegar assisting IBS. The use of olive oil is always beneficial because it is such a healthy choice and it may assist with IBS because it should prevent constipation.
