Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits: Weight Loss, Blood Sugar & Cholesterol

acv health

You may have heard by now about the buzz surrounding benefits of apple cider vinegar. If you have it in your kitchen, you are probably used to using it as a cooking ingredient. But do you know about the amazing health benefits that come along with it? Apple cider vinegar  has been credited with everything from curing hiccups and alleviating cold symptoms to aiding in weight loss and helping to prevent heart disease. Here are just a few in a long list of benefits of adding just one tablespoon a day of apple cider vinegar to your diet:

1. Helps Heartburn and Acid Reflux

Acid reflux symptoms usually begin when having too little acid in the stomach. Apple cider vinegar is full of antibiotic properties. To improve the acid content of your stomach, drink one tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar mixed in a glass of water.

2. Promotes Healthy Cholesterol

Not only does apple cider vinegar support healthy cholesterol, studies have shown that it can protect from arterial damage or oxidation,  which is the main risk of high cholesterol.

3. Can Aid in Healthy Weight Loss

Yep, apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight. The acetic acid it contains helps to suppress your appetite, increase your metabolism and reduce water retention — a great combo if you’re looking to lose a few pounds.

4. Promotes Healthy Blood Sugar

Studies have shown that apple cider vinegar has strong anti-glycemic properties that support a healthy blood sugar level. The vinegar actually blocks some of the digestion of starch, preventing it from raising your blood sugar.

5. Has Antioxidant Properties

Apple cider vinegar contains many antioxidants to help keep your body healthy and running smoothly, including catechin, gallic acid, caffeic and chlorogenic acids.

6. Improves Nutrient Absorption

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar can increase your body’s absorption of important minerals from the food you eat. Adding vinegar to your salad dressing may also help you absorb more nutrients from your leafy greens!

There are even more benefits to using apple cider vinegar! Check out the video here:

Just two tablespoons a day can help keep your heart healthy, allow your body to absorb beneficial nutrients, and more. If you want to start using apple cider vinegar, here’s how:

  1. Don’t reach for just any apple cider vinegar on the shelf. Make sure you are buying organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar.
  2. If you want to drink it daily, just mix two tablespoons into a glass of water. Add a tablespoon of honey if you’d like, or lemon to add flavor, and enjoy!
  3. If drinking it isn’t your thing, there are other options. You can add it to your salads or other dishes to make sure you’re still incorporating it into your diet.

To check out ways you can use it around the house, or as a beauty product (you can use it to whiten your teeth!), check out this article on apple cider vinegar uses.

Not even a real video but a video of a video on a cell phone? Geez, not a chance I am going to watch that.

    Kevin Dean Heairet - March 15, 2016

    kderose - March 16, 2016

    you didn’t watch beyond the first couple seconds, eh? Sad for you .. that you missed the info and the real demonstration shown.

Notice they say it *CAN* … so when you drink this stuff for 2 months and still have health problems (which you will), they can say “well, we never promised it would help”!!

    Ronald Cox - August 4, 2016

    Tell me a pharmacutiial lab drug that guarantees you wont be sick ! Negative people get negative effects/>

      April_Fool_79 - August 5, 2016

      At least they have studies that back up that yes, the drugs do help people. I have yet to see a drug company that says “this drug will fix all your problems!!!”

        Hannover Fist - August 9, 2016

        Oh Yes, Studies are EVERYTHING, Right…anyone can get a study done with enough money backing the products Clearly you are more into Big Pharma as a Cure all than Natural Remedies…..So Have at it. …why are you even here to tell others how ACV is not the way…..there are so many SHEEPLE LIKE YOU, BLah!

      van sanders - October 22, 2016

      Thank you Ronald Cox for that comment. Doctors and lawyers all have a “practice”. They are practicing on you and I. If you can read and discern what you have read you could “help heal” yourself.

    Linda VanKampen - October 19, 2016

    Instead of bitching about it, try it. Then you can bitch it didn’t help you! Geesh.

You forgot Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have had weekly flareups (a.k.a my fingers swell to double their size and feel like someone is slamming a hammer down on the joints) for 4 years now. 5 months ago someone told me to try mixing 1 tbsp of ACV (braggs) and 1 tbsp of honey in a small glass of water and drink it 2-3 times a day. Not a single flare up since I started. I don’t care who says it’s an old wives tale, it works like magic and I no longer live on Advil.

    Shawna - December 4, 2016

    Hello all, I have to join in here because I am new to this ACV stuff. But will tell you my results hopefully help someone else. About a month ago I could not sleep as usual on Facebook and it was a video popped I talking about ACV and helping kick start your matabolism for weight loose. So thought I try every pill out there let’s try something natural. So started taking 1Tbls ACV 1Tbls fresh lemon juice 8oz water and a pinch of sea salt. Well here is where it gets interesting. I have suffered from bad bursitis in my hip for about 3 years. Where it causes my to limo at times then causing tendinitis in the top of foot. Some nights wakes me up crying it hurts so bad like a Charlie horse in your hip and foot that won’t rub out. So about a good week after starting the ACV I start noticing my hip pain not hurting as much foot still hurt so weird. Now I am about 3 weeks in and no hip pain or foot pain at all. I’m a believer. In the last 3 years I have had X-rays, ultra sound went to physical therapy and chiropractor not relief at all. Not to mention rounds of predizone. Cortisone shots etc. nothing every helped now this home remedy and a Miricle. Told me sister fighting with her sugar been taking it a week 1/2 and her sugar went from running in the 200’s every morning to the 70’s. So it’s worth a try. Good luck

    Is it okay to drink ACV before eating or after eating or with an empty stomach?

Anonymous Person - August 6, 2016

I used this to CURE my strep throat – this stuff is no joke.

When i had really bad strep throat i combined two remedies salt & apple cider vinegar:

1 spoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 spoon of salt into a glass of water 8-12oz maybe more and i would:

Gargle three times each time for 10 seconds then after spitting it out each time on the second and third time after i spit i’d drink alittle bit like an ounce, Did this two times a day and it was almost instantaneous relief on the 2nd day the strep throat was gone.

    disqus_DpQA4464vw - August 12, 2016

    Were you actually diagnosed with “strep throat” or did you think you had strep?

      Anonymous Person - August 12, 2016

      I wasn’t diagnosed with “strep throat” i had that a couple times as a kid and was diagnosed then so i know what it feels like – So through experience i KNOW i had strep throat & this remedy i put forth cured it.

        Midnite Love - August 26, 2016

        Same here. I used a combo of Garlic, AVC, Vitamin C and Tylenol (for fever) to cure my strept. And you are correct. If you have it once in your life you won’t ever forget the pain.

    Eliza Nimon - September 18, 2016

    I used this to gargle with water and raw honey to also cure my most recent case of strep throat! I’ve now begun to drink this with water, raw honey and ginger each morning to prepare for the oncoming winter season. TOTAL GAME CHANGER!! :)

Brian Collins - August 18, 2016

well people will always nasay anything not approved by the bought and paid for researchers . But I’m putting in my two cents anyway. I am 52 at age 50 June of 2015 I fell from 29 feet and had a broken back ,skull fractures ,and a crushed right arm that required over 8 hours of surgery to rebuild. Then is Sept 2015 I had a heart attack from all the stress , I had no insurance or workmans comp because I was a contractor. So that’s the background.
Since Sept 2015 I have used only home remedies Apple sider vinegar , vitamin b12 complex , fish oils, co q10, and a few others. now one year later my heart is in great shape. I’m still loosing weight slowly, and the arthritis from breaking my wrists at least 3 times in the past, (another story about a young guy that would climb or jump anything.) are thing of the past. I am in better health than ever and it is because of home remedies. This stuff works.

    Darian - September 28, 2016

    Wonderful!! Thank you for sharing, Brian! I’m glad you’re doing better!

Mike - August 21, 2016

My friend just told me about the advantages…he states he drinks 2 spoonful’s a days….he said make a “concoction” add honey, lemon whatever…so I made a hot cup of water, added, lemon, olive oil, cinnamon and honey along with 2 teaspoonful’s of ACV…my belly feels better in less than an hour!!

I had eczema on my upper back. Tried cortisone cream over the counter and prescription , anti fungal ointments and plain lotions. I started taking one tsp of apple cider vinegar and one tsp of honey in half a cup of warm water. At the same time, I stopped all the prescription ointments, It didn’t even take a week and my eczema is gone. I am a RN and couldn’t believe how taking this concoction cleared it.

Steve Dronzewski - December 8, 2016

Why just 60 days? Why not all the time?
