Losing weight can be a challenging process. Losing weight requires two most important things which are exercise and food. Therefore, trying various methods to shed that few pounds can be intriguing if you come across a news article claiming that drinking apple cider vinegar may help you lose weight. Apple cider vinegar has been used for health wellness for so many years. Few studies show that apple cider vinegar has so many benefits for your health. But consuming apple cider vinegar everyday can help you to lose weight? In this article, we will take a look at the facts behind this theory to get more information.


What is apple cider vinegar?

Apple cider vinegar made with a two-step fermentation process.

The vinegar is made with crushed apple, sugar and yeast. The apples are crushed and combined with yeast to convert the sugar into alcohol. After that, the bacteria will be added to ferment the alcohol into acetic acid. Acetic acetic is the primary component in apple cider vinegar.

Acetic acid also known as short-chain fatty acid which dissolves into acetate and hydrogen in your body. Around 5–6% of apple cider vinegar consists of acetic acid. It also contains water and trace amounts of various other acids, such as malic acid. One tablespoon or 15 milliliters contains about 3 calories.

Apple cider vinegar has been used as an ingredient in foods in many households. People also used this for home remedies from fighting germs to preventing heartburn. It also does help with reducing blood sugar levels. There is not much evidence of apple cider vinegar’s benefits, but it is generally harmless as long as you use it in the right way.



The science behind apple cider vinegar for weight loss.

A research shows that 39 adults who consumed a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar at lunch and dinner, while cutting 250 calories per day, lost 8.8 pounds in 12 weeks. In contrast, those who cut the same number of calories but didn’t consume apple cider vinegar lost only 5 pounds. While both groups lost weight,apple cider vinegar groups have seen to lose more body fat mass.

Another studies shows that 144 adults with obesity chosen to consume either a placebo or one to two tablespoons of diluted apple cider vinegar daily for 12 weeks. By the end of the studies, people who drank two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar have lost 4 pound while those who drank one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar have lost 2.5 pounds. It also noted that people who consumed placebo have gained a little bit of weight.

However this does not prove that apple cider vinegar is magic fat melter. This research has been done with very few people but the results have shown that taking apple cider vinegar has shown some benefits in shedding the body weight.

It is shown that apple cider vinegar does promotes fullness which can help in decrease the daily calorie intake. After that, apple cider vinegar also have shown to slow down the rate where food leaves your stomach. But this may not work for everyone, instead it may cause harmful effects.

Apple cider vinegar has been shown to extend the time food stays in your stomach, therefore taking it with meals could worsen gastroparesis.
