Apple Cider Vinegar Explained

Apple Cider Vinegar Explained

Apple Cider Vinegar is an increasingly popular health supplement. By 2026 it's forecast that we'll be spending £175 million a year on this supplement worldwide!

Used for various health benefits by many cultures throughout the ages, ACV is a particularly nutritious antioxidant. Apple Cider Vinegar is ideal for cooking and great in salad dressings. It contains acetic acid alongside a variety of beneficial vitamins, minerals, polyphenols and other phytochemicals. Vinegar is a great natural disinfectant and has been used to treat wounds for 2000 years (ask Jack after he fell down the hill). You can use it as a food preservative, and it can boost skin health when applied topically.

By far the biggest driving factor behind Apple Cider Vinegar’s popularity is its reputation as a weight-loss and slimming aid.

Can Apple Cider Vinegar Help You Lose Weight?

No safe supplement or medication can cause significant short-term weight-loss on its own. Anything that could achieve this aim would carry serious health risks. The only way to permanently lose a significant amount of body mass, healthily, is to change your diet and do more exercise so you go into "calorie deficit", meaning you burn up fewer calories than you eat.

However, if you are currently trying to lose weight, whether that means going paleo, running, fasting, or whatever your regime looks like, then there are many supplements that might help to make slimming a slightly brighter experience.

The less you eat, the more important it is to make sure your body gets all the ingredients it needs to work properly. Using supplements to fill potential gaps in daily nutrition is particularly applicable when following a specialised diet. Serious deficiencies can cause headaches, excessive hunger, anxiety, insomnia, and more. Appropriate supplementation can help protect against this.

Apple Cider Vinegar is highly nutritious, and there’s decent evidence to suggest it can improve dietary health and increase weight-loss through various mechanisms:

  • Heart Health: These studies show that vinegar can lower blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels; all key indicators of heart disease risk. However, no robust human trials have been carried out yet.
  • Blood Sugar: Research provides evidence that ACV can improve insulin sensitivity & lower blood sugar, particularly after eating high-carb meals.
  • Feelings of Fullness: Some human trials indicate vinegar can increase feelings of fullness, meaning participants eat fewer calories afterwards.
  • Fat-Burn: Some studies, such as this research paper, appear to show a reduction in belly-fat after daily consumption of Apple Cider Vinegar.
  • Gut Balance: ‘The Mother’, a cloudy substance found in unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar, contains friendly bio-cultures, that could help to support weight-loss by improving the bacterial balance within your gut biome.


Why take Apple Cider Vinegar as a supplement?

Being an acid, this vinegar burns your throat a bit when taken in liquid form, which is far from ideal. There's a limit to how much you can keep taking in the form of salad dressing. 

By helping keep your digestive system balanced, assisting in the breakdown of nutrients and encouraging feelings of fullness, Apple Cider Vinegar could be a valuable and highly beneficial addition to your dieting regime.

Remember, taking Apple Cider Vinegar without also being on a calorie-restricted diet is unlikely to any results!
