It’s thought that the acetic acid that makes up the apple cider vinegar can help you to lose weight in a few ways:
- Apple cider vinegar can help to suppress body fat accumulation in your body
- Apple cider vinegar can help to improve digestion and reduce bloating
- Apple cider vinegar can help to suppress your appetite by making you feel fuller for longer, reducing your overall calorie intake.
In a Japanese study conducted in 2009, a group of people were randomly assigned to three groups of similar weight, body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference.
During a 12 week period, the subjects each ingested 500ml of a beverage containing either 0ml, 15ml or 30ml of vinegar, every day.
Body weight, BMI, visceral fat area, waist circumference and serum triglyceride levels (a type of fat found in your blood, high levels can increase risks of heart disease) were significantly lower in both vinegar-intake groups, than in the group who took no vinegar at all.
Apple cider vinegar shouldn’t be treated as a ‘miracle diet pill’, but it’s an excellent way to compliment a healthier diet and active lifestyle.
