Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a vinegar made from fermented apple juice and used in salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes, food preservatives, and chutneys. It is made by crushing apples, extracting the juice, and then fermenting it with acetic acid-forming bacteria. Apple cider vinegar has been sold as supplements over the years due to its incredible benefits for digestion, detoxification, and weight management. It is also full of natural enzymes, vitamins, and minerals, making it a nutrient-rich tonic.  


Some believe that drinking Apple cider vinegar before bedtime is the best time to do it, as you can get most of its benefits by this time. However, current research shows that taking ACV at a certain time of the day does not make a huge difference to its benefits. So, you can take ACV in the morning, before a meal, or before bedtime, just as it suits.

Apple cider vinegar helps support blood glucose levels; it also has a natural antimicrobial activity. It can assist with weight management by supporting healthy fat metabolism and cholesterol levels. Through its antioxidant activity, it can support heart health. It helps regulate a healthy Ph in the body and it supports digestion and detoxification processes.

Yes, Apple cider vinegar has been shown to help support weight management, by encouraging fat metabolism (the breakdown of fats during digestion), supporting general digestion with its natural enzymes and liver function, as well as detoxification, to help eliminate unnecessary toxins from the body.

It is recommended to take 1 to 2 teaspoons of the liquid before or with meals to assist with digestion, so for some the effects of ACV may be immediate. However, if you are using this ingredient to help support with something more chronic, then it may take up to a week, even two weeks in some cases, to see results. Everyone is different and therefore the process for each person may vary, depending on their health status.
