The benefits of vinegar and olive oil

Vinegar

Aisha radiallahu anha narrated that the Prophet salallahu alahi wasallam said:

“ Vinegar! the best of dipping.” [“Drinks”: Saheeh Muslim. 1051].

Dipping: the act of putting something in a liquid for sometime; e.g. He dipped the bread into vinegar; he immersed bread into vinegar and ate it.

In fact, vinegar contains a small quantity of protein and starches; not only that, it has the following elements and minerals: sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphate, iron, zinc and chloride.

In a book about the advantages of apple vinegar by Dr. Morris Hansen and Cyril Scott, it is said that apple vinegar has a number of benefits. It:

1. Prevents diarrhea, for it has anti-diarrhea material

2. Activates the process of digestion and metabolism in human body;

3. Prevents dental decay;

4. Kills parasites in the stomach and small an large intestines;

5. Improves digestion in those who suffer from indigestion.

 

Besides, it functions as an disinfectant for the intestines.

It can also be used to rinse out the mouth and throat from any bacteria; it cleanse the mouth and throat from any germs. (Extracts from the Prophetic Medicine)

Olive Oil

 

Ibn Umar radiallahu anhu narrated that the Prophet salallahu alahi wasallam said:“ Dabble (edibles) in olive oil and anoint yourselves with it, for it is extracted from a blessed tree.” In another divine narration, narrated by Ibn Usayed radiallahu anhu said that the Prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam said: “Eat and anoint yourselves with olive oil, for it is extracted from a blessed tree.” (Ibn Majah)

 

In line with the above Ahadith, recent scientific researches approved that this edible oil has many protective advantages from the disease– arteriosclerosis (or atheroma) patchy thickening of the lining of arteries. Herein, the Prophet of all Mankind did advice man to orally take olive oil fourteen centuries ago.

Why did he do so? The answer is that olive oil as has been recently confirmed scientifically contains chemical materials, which prevent the occurrence of blood clot in arteries (coronary thrombosis). While this chemical material further increases the ratio of the desired cholesterol of high density namely HDL, it prevents the other type of dangerous cholesterol from being clotted in the blood.

 

More over, physicians in Milan Hospital, Italy, prescribe olive oil as part of the medication given to those patients who underwent a heart surgery in arteries. Patients of artery problems are given four to five spoonfuls daily.

 

In his study published by the American Medical Magazine, 1986, Dr. Girandy, a professor in Texas University, USA, stated that olive oil decreases cholesterol by 13% and the fatty proteins by 21%. He, therefore, advises Americans to take olive oil instead of other oils in order to prevent themselves from and avoid artery diseases. (Extracts from the Prophetic Medicine)
