Does Apple Cider Vinegar Actually Make You Lose Weight?

Such people usually need a little boost in their metabolism to get them going and if you search online, you will probably find several alternatives to weight loss and metabolism boosters

Apple cider vinegar is one of the products that has been touted as great for weight loss I decided to do a little digging and find out exactly how it works in helping to trim the excess body fat

Apple cider vinegar is made from apples which are crushed then fermented and distilled to form a liquid that is rich in acetic acid (vinegar) It has been used for hundreds of years to treat various medical conditions ranging from ear canal infections to altering vaginal PH to being applied to the cervix to screen for cervical cancer

If you want to incorporate apple cider vinegar into your dietary plan, dilute two tablespoons of it with a tall glass of water Drink it through a straw as the vinegar can corrode your tooth enamel over time Don’t worry about nasty taste, when diluted with water, it doesn’t taste so bad and after while you would get used it

Never take the vinegar undiluted as it can wreak havoc on your intestines You should also only use raw and unprocessed apple cider vinegar Brands that you can look out for that are raw and unprocessed are Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar which is available at most of the HealthyU stores in Nairobi

The claims of apple cider vinegar’s ability to make you lose weight are not backed by any scientific findings though It’s only a Japanese study on lab animals that supports these claims but conclusive studies on humans are currently unavailable So as of now, they’re mostly word of mouth tales of people finding it beneficial

Keeping this in mind, do not use it as a substitute for the tried and tested benefits of safe exercising and clean and healthy eating It would be best to use it a complimentary method and watch how your body responds to it Another option would be to mix it with a little virgin olive oil to form a low-calorie dressing for your salad You can also look for other creative ways of consuming it if the idea of taking it straight with water doesn’t sit well with you

If you have previously suffered from frequent acid refluxes, gastritis or if you have ulcers, it would probably be a good idea to stay away from acid cider vinegar as it might aggravate the situation For some people, though, apple cider vinegar helps to reduce acid refluxes but the science and details surrounding that is a story for another day

Because there is no scientific backing to apple cider vinegar as a weight loss tool, the amount that one should consume in a day is also not very clear However, most websites seem to agree on two tablespoons in a tall glass of water a day before your first meal of the dayWhats in ItIts mostly apple juice, but adding yeast turns the fruit sugar into alcohol this is fermentation. It should also only be taken once a day

As with all things concerning your body and health, do a thorough research, understand your body and if possible consult with a professional before taking any step
