Myth or fact: apple cider vinegar for weight loss

A new magic potion is trending right now on social media – promising all sorts of health improvements. This one is most likely sitting in a corner of your kitchen, and you probably use it to spice up your salad.

It’s apple cider vinegar! But is it really that good for you, or is it only a myth?

Often abbreviated as ACV, this type of acid is famous in the wellness world (and ACV gummies are popular among influencers ) for helping you to lose pounds, improve digestion, boost your immune system, and even improves your skincare! 

You’ve also probably heard your grandmother talking about it as the go-to home remedy for lowering blood sugar levels, cleaning the house, losing weight, and using it as a preservative when storing home-grown fruits and veggies.

Let's see what science says about apple cider vinegar benefits.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Weight Loss

What is apple cider vinegar with the mother?

ACV is the result of the apple cider fermentation process. Apples are crushed, distilled, and juiced. Then, this apple juice is fermented with bacterial and yeast cultures (this is where probiotics hide for your healthy gut). Sugars from the apple juice are transformed into alcohol, and voilà, you get the vinegar.

But what is the mother in apple cider vinegar with the mother? You may have spotted this on bottle labels, and if you look at the bottom of the bottle, you can see it with your own eyes. That cloudy sediment, is a mix of yeast and good bacteria produced during fermentation.

The mother is packed with healthy bacteria and is a natural probiotic source to make your gut happy. Sadly, many vinegar producers remove the mother from this apple acidic juice – because they want the liquid to appear clear. Boy, how wrong they are for doing that!

Apple cider vinegar benefits

Now, let’s discuss the positive effects adding ACV to your diet brings. There are several studies which confirm the health benefits, and here are the conclusions:

  • Blood sugar levels – ACV may help lower the glucose in your blood (now you know why Granny has been using it).
  • Bloating – this uncomfortable balloon belly sensation is known to all women, but ACV is widely used in naturopathic treatments for gastrointestinal problems, and it may help with bloating, too!
  • Digestion Apple cider vinegar with the mother is a true gem among probiotics. It's a natural remedy for your gut because the mother is, in fact, a healthy bacteria bomb.
  • Skincare – Although weird, ACV is used for oily and acne-prone skin because it balances skin pH and can be used as a toner.
  • Weight loss – The use of this apple potion in weight loss diets is quite popular, and it actually has some scientific back up. Scroll down and see what one study has to say.

Can ACV help you with weight loss?

A study, conducted in 2018, examined the benefits of apple cider vinegar for weight loss. 39 participants in the trial were put on restricted calorie diets for over 12 weeks. One group consumed about 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily, and they lost significantly more weight and body fat compared to the group that didn’t add ACV to their diet plan.

This study proved that ACV can really help you lose weight! It can also help you lower the triglyceride levels in your blood, lose belly fat, reduce your body fat percentage, and even suppress appetite. Thank you, science (and nature)!

Wait, we know what you’re thinking. How can you possibly drink two tablespoons of ACV with its strong smell and icky taste?
