Can Apple Cider Vinegar Help With Weight Loss?

You are no doubt familiar with the amazing curative properties attributed to apple cider vinegar. “ACV” (as it’s sometimes referred to in studies) has been praised for its ability to balance your pH, increase good gut bacteria and help control your weight, as well as many other beneficial things.

A CNN report on apple cider vinegar suggests that the jury is still out. This is far from the case. There are myriad studies that have demonstrated the potency and efficacy of apple cider vinegar.    One study showed that three groups — adults with pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes and healthy people — after taking an ounce of ACV, all had lower blood glucose levels when they ate a high-carb meal consisting of a white bagel with butter and a glass of orange juice; again, compared with a placebo rather than the cider vinegar.

Just as dramatic are the studies involving ACV’s potential for controlling weight. The Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry reported a study on mice that were fed a high-fat diet along with the active ingredient in apple cider vinegar: acetic acid. The animal subjects ended up with 10 percent lower body weight than the control subjects.

If you’ve had problems such as colitis, ulcers or acid reflux (sometimes due to insufficient acid in your stomach), a double whammy of apple cider vinegar with the added bonus of fermented veggies has the potential to ease several kinds of stomach problems. For everyday gut health, a mixture of 2 teaspoons of ACV with a teaspoon of raw honey in a cup of warm water will help. ACV with honey and ginger for a sore throat is a popular and effective remedy.
