Apple cider vinegar may become your new best friend after reading this post! According to Robert H. Schmerling, MD, “Apple cider vinegar comes from apples that have been crushed, distilled, and then fermented. It can be consumed in small quantities or taken as a supplement. Its high levels of acetic acid, or perhaps other compounds, may be responsible for its supposed health benefits.” And the health benefits are quite surprising! Here are some reasons why apple cider vinegar may benefit you:
- It may contribute to weight loss due to its high levels of acetic acid. In his Harvard Health blog, Schmerling wrote that some studies have noted acetic acid’s effect on humans losing weight. “The most widely quoted study of humans is a 2009 trial of 175 people who consumed a drink containing 0, 1, or 2 tablespoons of vinegar each day,” explained Schmerling. In this study, it was shown that those who drank vinegar lost 2-4 pounds and reduced their triglyceride levels.
- Apple cider vinegar may reduce blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure, apple cider vinegar may be beneficial for you. In a study published in the journal Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry, acetic acid from apple cider vinegar helped lower the levels of renin, an enzyme that’s affiliated with boosting blood pressure.
- It may help control glucose levels. There is no evidence backing up apple cider vinegar as a cure for diabetes. However, consuming apple cider vinegar during meals contributed to lower insulin and blood glucose levels; this was revealed in a 2017 meta-analysis.
