How Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help in Weight Loss?


Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been used for centuries in food and medications and is a popular home ready throughout the globe. It has antimicrobial and antioxidant effects, which helps in serving weight loss, lowering cholesterol and blood sugar level and even controls the symptoms of diabetes.




ACV is apple juice turned into alcohol through the process of fermentation. Bacteria are added that then turns the alcohol into acetic acid which gives the vinegar its flavor. Research has indicated acetic acid is responsible for innumerable health benefits. Organic ACV, the most effective form, contains something called ‘mother’ which is a cloud of yeast and bacteria that is visible in an ACV bottle that contains proteins and enzymes for additional health benefit. These mother substances are pro-biotic and could give a boost to your digestive system.




ACV has been used for centuries as a home remedy to treat a variety of health conditions, and as salad dressing and in baking. Because of its pro-biotic nature ACV helps our body in several ways:


  • ACV can kill harmful bacteria in our body
  • It helps in lowering blood sugar level, especially for type 2 diabetes
  • It assists in weight loss programs.
  • Improves digestion
  • Promotes healthy skin

There are a few researches that suggest that Vinegar also has a chemical called polyphenols that aids in stopping the cell damage that can lead to cancer.




ACV has a lot of acids and hence is not recommended to intake directly. Direct and unregulated consumption of acid can erode your teeth and cause drug interactions. It’s better to start off with small dosages at first and in proper regular intervals. The best way to consume ACV is by adding 1-2 tablespoon in a glass of water/tea, or by adding the 2-3 tablespoons in your salads and other allied complementary. Some research indicates the best time to drink ACV is in the morning with lukewarm water. Dieticians recommend using organic unfiltered ACV with mother properties for better results. Hence, it is essential to include ACV in your diet to lead a healthy life and be protected from a number of health conditions. Apart from its efficiency in such health irregularities, ACV also acts as natural hair conditioner and skin care product for healthy hair and skin.
