There have been any conclusive studies on jamun vinegar as reducing obesity. It’s believed that taking this vinegar with food increase the feeling of being full and prevents overeating. Consumption of 15 ml jamun vinegar may reduce obesity but I wouldn’t suggest it.
You can use it instead of the conventional vinegar as you would use it usually.
Thanks for studying.
