Apple Cider Vinegar Info

Vinegar has been used by many cultures for centuries for a variety of reasons. Hippocrates is said to have used it for cleaning ulcers and sores, while Japanese Samurai consumed vinegar as a strengthening tonic.

It contains acetic acid, an antibacterial and antifungal chemical, which gives vinegar its sour smell. As well as acetic acid, there are many other bioactive compounds including antioxidants and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus which are required for many functions for optimal health and well-being.

With vinegar having high antioxidant activity, as well as antimicrobial properties, it means that as the body ages or deals with chronic inflammation, there is some support to counter the effects of these.

 

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apart from being a general well-being tonic and improving digestive health, Apple Cider Vinegar drink has had interesting results when studied for being of benefit for blood sugar dysregulation. The acetic acid can help the way the body converts sugar into a stored form (glycogen) within the muscles, as well as supporting insulin sensitivity and prompting cells to metabolize glucose.

It may also support blood sugar because it can help to slow down the way the stomach empties complex carbohydrates, therefore giving the body smaller amounts of sugar over a longer period of time for more stable blood glucose levels.

 

How to Take Apple Cider Vinegar

As well as taking Apple Cider Vinegar as a healthy drink mixed in a small amount of warm water, it can also be used in plenty of interesting ways:

  • Salad dressings
  • Household cleaner
  • Directly onto weeds as a weed killer
  • Flea deterrent on pets
  • Rinsed in the hair

  • Tastes good

    star

    I love the rich manuka honey taste in this apple cider vinegar. I've not been able to stand other brands because they are so bitter, but this one is lovely with the honey and I can take it straight off the spoon!

  • Never be without this product

    star

    I take ACV many times per day - generally just before food - this helps even out my blood sugar levels. It also helps digest a heavy meal, or a high carb meal. I also take it if my blood sugars drop - this takes away the "shakes". I take it every morning on an empty stomach before the gym for that burst of energy. I never get sick. This is a fantastic product. I take it everywhere with me. Highly recommend this for wonderful overall health.

    I love this brand of apple cider vinegar! It's much less acidic tasting than others I've tried, and is easy to drink diluted in a glass of water. The fact that it is also organic is a bonus! Highly recommended!
