Vinegar Can Eliminate Fatigue
You will not be tired if pyroracemic and lactic acids are not accumulated in your body. You can eliminate fatigue by burning and consuming the pyroracemic and lactic acids already present. For this purpose, you have to make the citric acid cycle work well, which is the process where each one of eight acids is changed to another in turn, as mentioned earlier.
The oxaloacetic acid plays the most important role for a smooth work of this cycle. It would be the most desirable if we could supply the cycle this acid for its good work. But this acid cannot be used as medicine for that purpose because it is oxidized easily. Some substitutes for it can be chosen to act as the medicine of fatigue. These are the seven acids which work in the citric acid cycle with the oxaloacetic acid, asparagine, and glutamic acid from which those seven acids are composed, and acetic acid, which is the original form of fatty acids.
Acetic acid can eliminate fatigue, because it is changed to citric acid by combining with oxaloacetic acid with the help of CoEnzyme A and ATP (adensosine triphosphate). Why is it that the oxaloacetic acid plays the most important role in the citric acid cycle? It is because this acid has the capability of decarbonation or drawing out carbon dioxide from other substances. This is essential for the citric acid cycle as well as over fourteen other chemical reactions in our body.
Is it true that vinegar harms persons who suffer from gastric hyperacidity or duodenal ulcer?
Some investigations into heartburn have demonstrated that heartburn can occur to a person who has lost all of his stomach through surgery, or who has gastric juices which contain little or no acid. Moreover, some people can have heartburn even if they drank alkaline water, or just a lot of water.
Thus, heartburn is caused not only by excessive secretion of gastric juice, but also such diseases as esophagitis or gastritis, or when a person who is in highly nervous or frustrated state drinks a lot of water hastily.
If you have peptic or duodenal ulcers, you should start taking citric acid by drinking a little at first, increasing its volume little by little. You can distinguish these two diseases by the pain they cause: the peptic ulcer causes pain half or one hour after you ate food, while the duodenal ulcer hurts before you eat food in most cases.
Why take more acid when your gastric juice contains too much hydrochloric acid already? You needn’t worry; because citric acid is the most effective means to normalize the autonomic nerve, which is out of order due to stress caused by mental and physical overwork, and is a major cause of the peptic ulcer. You have to also take measures against the stress by resting your body and brain, or by recreation, as well as to take plenty of animal food and greens which are necessary to repair the wound.
Is it true that vinegar causes abnormal discharge of calcium, and harms your teeth and bones?
No, it is not true. It may be natural that such a theory would have been accepted in the time before biochemistry was developed. I hope such a theory has not caused any ill effects for some people who believe it even till today. Calcium is certainly one of the main components of bones and teeth. It has to be acidified entirely in the stomach before its absorption, and can only be absorbed through the duodenum and the upper small intestine before it loses its acidity.
What will happen then, if the gastric juices were not secreted sufficiently or were lacking in acidity? The intestine juice, which is alkaline due to the sodium bicarbonate contained in the pancreatic juice, alkalizes the calcium quickly. Calcium particles, which are assembled together when alkalized, then form larger particles which cannot pass through the tiny holes of the intestine wall. Accordingly, they are only discharged with feces. As we get older, the secretion of gastric juices decrease.
If you lack gastric juice, you will also lack calcium, and you will be liable to have diarrhea because of insufficient sterilization of food by the chlorine contained in gastric juices. Moreover, Vitamins B1 and C will be destroyed by the alkalinity in the intestine. Thus, you cannot maintain your health.
However, the citric and acetic acids which eliminate fatigue can help you. If you take these acids properly, you can make up the insufficient gastric juice. These acids, or vinegar, never discharge calcium abnormally; on the contrary, they prevent such abnormality. They help the gastric juice to sterilize all the food we take and protect the absorption of vitamins B1 and C perfectly.
In addition, the lack of gastric juice prevents the absorption of iron, which is shown by the red color of blood and sometimes causes anemia.
