Although apple cider vinegar doesn’t contain many vitamins or minerals, it’s an excellent source of other bioactive ingredients. Two of the key ones are acetic acid and malic acid.
Acetic acid, as we mentioned above, is created by adding bacteria to the fermented apple alcohol, and it has loads of benefits (we'll get to those in a minute)
Malic acid, on the other hand, is found naturally in fruits like apples, cherries, and tomatoes, but is found at an even higher concentration in ACV
ACV has tons of health benefits thanks to these bioactive ingredients.
- Supports Weight Loss & Metabolism.
One of the biggest benefits of ACV is that it can aid in weight loss. Studies have shown that consuming ACV (along with high-carb foods) can result in feeling fuller for longer.
This, in turn, can help with losing weight due to a reduced caloric intake.
In addition, vinegar has been shown to help metabolic syndrome-related conditions in some individuals.
- Lowers Cholesterol.
A happy heart is a happy body.
Some studies have shown that regular consumption of ACV can help lower cholesterol and triacylglycerols, which supports heart health.
- Reduces Blood Pressure.
When your blood pressure is high, your heart is working harder. We think the mantra "work smarter, not harder" should apply to your body, too.
Acetic acid, the superstar active ingredient in ACV, was found in one study to decrease blood pressure in animals.
Another study on animals found that vinegar actually blocks the enzyme that raises blood pressure.
Yet another showed that consuming ACV reduced the risk of heart disease in humans.
- Lowers Blood Sugar.
ACV is particularly great for people with diabetes, or anyone who wants to keep their blood sugar levels regulated.
Numerous studies have shown that ACV lowers blood sugar and improves insulin responses.
When your insulin is regulated, you’ll also feel fuller for longer, which goes hand-in-hand with weight-loss properties. And everyone loves a two-for-one deal.
- Potential Anti-Cancer Properties.
There isn’t conclusive evidence to suggest that apple cider vinegar is linked to fighting cancer.
However, one study found that when test tubes of human and animal cancer cells were exposed to acetic acid, the cancerous cells were killed.
Another suggests that vinegar can aid in shrinking tumors, but more research is needed to effectively prove how directly ingesting ACV can affect cancerous cells.
Suggested Use: 1 capsule taken 1 to 3 times daily preferably with meals or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Those patients with identified health conditions should be aware that current prescription medication may interact with dietary supplements, and they should consult their doctor before start using the product.
