What does Apple Cider Vinegar do?

If there's one health tonic that has stood the test of time, it's Apple Cider Vinegar.

Apple Cider Vinegar is made from apples that have been chopped, covered with water, and left at room temperature until the natural sugars ferment and form ethanol. Bacteria then convert this alcohol into acetic acid, which is also rich in antioxidants, enzymes, and acids.


What are the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar?

Supports Healthy Weight Management

Scientific studies have shown that those who consume Apple Cider Vinegar had better weight management compared to those who did not. Combining Apple Cider Vinegar with a well-balanced diet can help to support healthy weight management.

A 2006 study on mice showed that exposure to acetic acid increased certain enzyme levels and increased fat burning.

Research in 2016 found that treatment with acetic acid or acetate prevented rats with high body weight and diabetes from gaining weight.

In a 2009 study, researchers fed mice a high-fat diet supplemented with acetic acid and saw an increase in genes that facilitate fat burning.


Supports Appetite Control

Studies have shown that Apple Cider Vinegar contains natural acids and enzymes that help promote the feeling of fullness and increases satiety (curb your appetite), helping to reduce calorie intake to support weight loss efforts. Its acetic acid has even been shown to increase metabolism and reduce water retention.

A 2014 study found that acetate might help suppress the parts of your brain that control your appetite.

2005 study found that those who took vinegar with a high carb meal had a 55 percent lower blood sugar response after eating. They also took in 200 to 275 fewer calories for the rest of the day.

A 1998 study showed that when taken with a starch-heavy meal, vinegar slowed down the process of stomach emptying. This led to lower blood sugar, lower insulin levels, and a longer-lasting feeling of fullness.

Supports Skin Health

The eight B vitamins are necessary for nearly every process within the body. They help turn food into energy and affect the health of our nervous system, metabolism, organs, muscles, skin, and hair. They’re also essential for cell growth, development, and overall functioning. As such, they offer serious benefits to skin health, since our skin is constantly regenerating. The healthier your skin, the faster it renews.

However, we’ve got a relatively small storage tank for B vitamins, which means we need to keep refilling it each day.

A Vitamin B deficiency can wreak havoc on your skin, causing acne, rashes, dry and flaky skin, cracked lips, and wrinkles. It can also make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, personal care products, and other potential aggressors, and can accordingly lead to redness and irritation.

Supports Healthy Energy Levels

When fatigue is related to lactic acid build-up in the body as a result of intense exercise or excessive stress, Apple Cider Vinegar contains potassium and enzymes that act as a natural electrolyte solution, as well as amino acids that can reduce lactic acid build-up in the body and help relieve fatigue.

A clinical trial that compared athletes that consumed Apple Cider Vinegar and athletes that consumed sports drink to measure the anti-fatigue and ergogenic effects of Apple Cider Vinegar, concluded that participants consuming ACV resulted in similar blood glucose levels (energy) as those that consumed the sports drink, both showing an ergogenic effect.


Supports Gut Health for Healthy Digestion

Thanks to Apple Cider Vinegar's antibacterial properties, which can lend help to common gut issues that can be caused by bacteria, like diarrhoea. As a fermented food, ACV also contains probiotics that help regulate overall healthy digestion.

Pectin is recognized as an important prebiotic and a fiber and, helps support healthy flourishing of the gut flora; ultimately providing a beneficial environment in the gut.
