Apple Cider Vinegar – What’s the deal?

There are lots of myths available online regarding Apple Cider Vinegar. The hype that surrounds how useful it can be in everyday life has been somewhat exaggerated! We decided to have a very quick look at three of these claims regarding Apple Cider Vinegar – Is it all BS?

Apple Cider Vinegar does have some pretty potent functions in our diet! Assuming our diet is already pretty good. In other words, Apple Cider Vinegar is not a magic solution, but it can help us when used correctly.

While some of the items noted in the list below are interesting, it should be noted there are lots of ways to stay healthy, and our own research has proved that Apple Cider Vinegar has advantages but it is a long way from the solution to a poor diet.

Do your own research to understand if Apple Cider Vinegar can help your diet.

So let’s take a look at what precisely the experts say it can do in our diet:

1. It can help you stay full for longer

A small study we found online reported a test subject of 12 people who consumed vinegar before eating a breakfast, which was made up of white bread, felt fuller longer than those who only ate bread! The study, however, noted that a few hours later both parties were equally hungry. The study if applied to those who ate a healthy breakfast may have more interesting results.

2. Help keep breath fresh

The antibacterial properties of vinegar can kill microorganisms responsible for bad breath. So if you run out of mouthwash, it’s always an alternative. However, experts warn it’s no better than other methods of keeping breath fresh, and there are other alternative solutions out there that can do a better job of keeping your mouth minty clean, rather than vinegar fresh!

3. Can help reduce bloating

Some research has shown that because Apple Cider Vinegar can aid digestion, as it speeds along the digestion process, thus limiting the amount of acid reflux a person may get. However, some research counters this belief, so our suggestion would be to test this theory yourself, before reaching for the antacids.

4. Reduces sugar crash

One of the reported benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar is the reduction of a sugar crash. Again, a good diet would negate this possibility, to begin with.
