5 Reasons to Drink Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar deserves a special place in your diet, not to mention it has many household uses as well.

However, not all apple cider vinegar is made equal. There are different distillation techniques that can affect the overall quality and nutrient content of apple cider vinegar. When made properly with “The Mother” still intact, apple cider vinegar offers a host of health and wellness benefits.

What is ACV?

The natural health community has latched onto the benefits of using ACV, where it has quickly become the best-selling vinegar product.

Apple cider vinegar comes from crushed apples fermented with proprietary natural additives. ACV has a distinct sweet smell and tastes very sharp if taken neat.

There are many different brands of ACV available. However, the only products worth buying are those that state they include “The Mother.”

What is "The Mother" and Why Is It Important?

The Mother is the beneficial bacterial culture that grows during the fermentation phase. These bacteria have a probiotic effect in the GI tract, where it reduces inflammation and improves gut biome health.

This complex structure of beneficial acids has a murky appearance inside the bottle and will settle to the bottom. Always ensure that you purchase raw, unfiltered ACV from your health store. Any ACV that has undergone pasteurization or filtering will lose “The Mother” and the health benefits of the vinegar. (1)

5 Reasons to Drink ACV

#1 Anti-Microbial, Anti-Inflammatory, and Anti-Viral Properties

ACV is a natural disinfectant and preservative. The acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar has strong anti-microbial and anti-viral properties that improve the health of the immune system. (2)

#2 Rich in Acetic Acid

Acetic acid is released into ACV by The Mother during the fermentation process. Studies on AA show that it has a positive effect on the health of the GI tract, improving digestion by reducing inflammation in the wall of the small intestine. (3)

#3 Lower Fasted Blood Sugar Levels

A tablespoon of ACV taken every morning and evening before bedtime can help reduce fasted blood sugar readings. The acetic acid found in The Mother helps to improve metabolic function and insulin sensitivity. (4)

#4 Improve Cardiovascular Health

ACV studies on animals show that regular administration of ACV to mice reduced total triglyceride levels in the blood. ACV has the potential to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and improve good cholesterol (HDL). (5)

#5 Enhance the Effects of a Fat-loss Diet

ACV can accelerate metabolism and increase the effects of a fat-loss diet. Consuming ACV alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise will help you cope with feelings of hunger in a calorie deficit. (6)

 

Dosage and How to Use

The best way to add ACV into your diet is to take a tablespoon with two or three ounces of water first thing in the morning. You can also add a tablespoon of ACV in place of regular vinegar to make vinaigrette for salads.
