There have been any conclusive research on jamun vinegar as decreasing obesity. It is believed that taking this vinegar with meals 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 can use it in place of the traditional vinegar as you’d use it normally.
Thanks for studying.
