In the oriental medicine, it's necessary to keep the balance of "Sprits (Ki/C), Blood, Water". "Spirits" is incorporeal supernatural being, but it's definitely existed as we use "Ki ga yowaru (get weak)", "Kiryoku ga sagaru (lose energy)". "Blood" takes oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and carries away wastes. "Water" is body fluid including saliva hormones, and digestive juices, except for blood. The lack if those three cannot be perfect such as tricycles don't work if they lose a wheel.
Rice vinegar is operated boiled race to aspergillus to make sugar, and added alcohol fungus to make Sake, and even added acetobacter. Therefore, Rice vinegar is the only fermented food that is made with three times fermenting process. that's why it can maintain the balance of "Spirits, Blood, Water".
Recent studies have proven rice vinegar has oner 16 organic acid including citric acid and malic acid. and it also has the effect of killing bacteria, removes lactic acid and decreases natural fat an cholesterol in blood. In addition, decreases the number of blood pressures. It's discovered from Wakayama Medical University studies that murefral in Ume extract also decrease it. Also, rice vinegar boosts the immune system.
The acid taste of vinegar softens by honey in ice-cream or sherbet. I think it would be great ti add vinegar to ice-sweets and give it to your children.
