apple cider vinegar

Did you know that apple cider has been used as a health tonic for thousands of years? Not only does it reduce blood sugar levels and promote alkalinity, but it also has been proven to help you lose weight.

This is why we’ve prepared 9 apple cider weight loss drink recipes that you are bound to love.

But first, let’s start off with the facts.

Apple Cider & Acetic Acid 

As stated in an article published by Healthline, ‘’Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process. Acetic acid is the vinegar’s main active component.’’ 

So why is acetic acid so important? In this case, acetic acid takes on the role as a short-chain fatty acid. Once ingested, it is dissolved into acetate and hydrogen. As a result the acetic acid, as studies have suggested, can benefit the body in several ways. This includes but is not limited to the following:

– Lowers blood sugar levels

– Decreases insulin levels

– Improves metabolism

– Reduces fat storage

– Burns fat 

– Suppresses appetite 

Important note: These benefits, although suggested by scientists and health experts, are still being researched. Thus the confirmation of the potential effect of these claims is not fully guaranteed.

Calorie Intake

As reported by Healthline, in a small study consisting of 11 people, ‘’Those who took vinegar with a high-carb meal had a 55% lower blood sugar response one hour after eating. They also ended up consuming 200 – 275 less calories for the rest of the day.’’

Important note: Apple cider weight loss drink recipes can do more harm than good to some individuals—especially those with gastroparesis. This is because apple cider vinegar delays the stomach emptying process.
