There have been any conclusive research on jamun vinegar as decreasing obesity. It is believed that taking this vinegar with food increase the feeling of being full and prevents overeating. Consumption of 15 ml jamun vinegar could scale back obesity but I would not suggest it.
You should use it rather than the conventional vinegar as you’d use it usually.
Thanks for reading.
