Apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries. Many people believe that taking a few teaspoons of vinegar before meals can stimulate metabolism, reduce appetite and burn fat. Apple cider vinegar contains specific nutrients that help support your body’s natural functions like digestion. And when your body receives the nutrients it needs to function at its best, it sets the stage for natural weight loss.
Apple cider vinegar and weight loss: is it a myth?
It is believed that apple cider vinegar accelerates weight loss, because it helps control blood sugar levels and suppress appetite.
A 2006 review article in the “Medscape Journal of Medicine” concludes vinegar may have a role in blood sugar control and appetite suppression. Other studies show vinegar may also promote weight loss by preventing fat accumulation through its impact on insulin secretion. This study led to the conclusion that vinegar intake reduces body weight, body fat mass and serum triglyceride levels.
Acetic acid (AcOH), a main component of vinegar, might help suppress body fat accumulation.
In a recent study, researchers found acetic acid slows down the body’s insulin response to carbohydrates like white bread.
The healthy individuals who participated in the study were also reported to have higher levels of satiety after consuming vinegar with bread, compared to those who only had the bread alone.
This suggests that acetic acid may help promote blood sugar balance and keep your appetite satisfied for longer: two factors that lead to natural weight loss.
Apple Cider Vinegar Helps with Detoxification
Apple cider vinegar contains a nutrient called pectin, a type of fiber that can help promote bowel regularity and natural detoxification .
Regular and healthy digestion is essential to weight loss. If you aren’t eliminating daily, waste builds up in your digestive tract and can be stored as extra pounds.
Why is Apple Cider Vinegar better to use?
Apple cider vinegar is often chosen over other vinegars for many reasons. Aside from possible weight loss support, apple cider vinegar contains detoxifying qualities and has strong anti-microbial properties. Apple cider vinegar is a helpful health tonic that has shown promise in helping diabetes, cancer, heart health, high cholesterol, free radical damage, digestion and acid reflux. Indeed, even if the evidence about weight loss is lacking, it can’t hurt to include apple cider vinegar in a diet.
How to use apple cider vinegar for weight loss
The best way to use apple cider vinegar for weight loss is by drinking it mixed with water three times a day before meals.
Here are the steps I used:
- Shake the bottle of apple cider vinegar to mix it up.
- Pour one tablespoon apple cider vinegar into a cup.
- Pour one cup (eight ounces) of cold water into the cup with the vinegar.
- Drink the mixture 30 minutes to one hour prior to each meal.
My apple cider vinegar weight-loss results were surprising. I also recommend making this detox drink that will help your body burn fat, lose weight, fight diabetes, and more.
