Apple Cider Vinegar Complex for Weight Loss
Our apple cider vinegar complex is a herbal food supplement designed to support weight management and digestive health.
Each capsule contains 400mg of unfiltered apple cider vinegar, plus cayenne (capsicum frutescens), ginger root, turmeric (curcuma longa), green tea leaf and organic black pepper.
Apple Cider Vinegar Can Help To Improve Digestion
Unfiltered apple cider vinegar contains strands of protein, enzymes and healthy bacteria. These live bio culture properties mean that they can support a healthy gut.
When we eat or drink anything containing good beneficial bacteria, such as apple cider vinegar, the friendly bacteria it contains encourages the growth of more healthy bacteria in the gut. This supports a colony of beneficial gut bacteria (known as a microbiome). These beneficial bacteria help us digest and extract nutrients from the food we eat.
If there is an imbalance in our microbiome and our levels of good bacteria are low, our bodies can’t get nutrients from food as effectively, which can hinder weight loss and even promote weight gain. Our apple cider vinegar complex can help with that.
Friendly Bacteria = Better Digestion = Weight Loss Support.
Apple Cider Vinegar Can Act Like a Natural Laxative
Apple cider vinegar capsules might be especially helpful to individuals who experience lower levels of stomach acid such as older people, people with autoimmune disease or individuals with anaemia. Lower levels of stomach acid can make the digestion process more sluggish and less efficient.
Apple cider vinegar is a highly acidic substance, so the theory is that taking apple cider vinegar capsules daily will help raise stomach acid levels and give digestion a boost.
Apple Cider Vinegar Can Help Stabilise Blood Sugar
Eating foods high in sugar or refined carbohydrates can cause a sudden rise, or ‘spike’, in blood sugar soon after eating. This blood sugar spike causes your body to produce high levels of insulin to allow the glucose to enter your body’s cells to be used as energy. If you are experiencing frequent blood sugar spikes, it means your body is producing too much insulin, and your body can stop recognising it. Over time, this is a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. Also, the subsequent blood sugar drop after a spike leads to increased feelings of hunger, cravings and potentially overeating. This, in turn, leads to weight gain over time.
It has been scientifically proven* that vinegar, including apple cider vinegar, can help to prevent a rapid rise in blood sugar, which can help to keep your weight stable. This is due to the acetic acid that vinegar contains.
Apple cider vinegar can also improve insulin sensitivity, making it easier for the body’s cells to recognise insulin, reducing blood sugar spikes and troughs and minimising the risk of type 2 diabetes.**
Apple Cider Vinegar Can Keep You Fuller For Longer
Taking vinegar with a meal can help to keep you satisfied and less likely to reach for a snack not long after eating. Studies have shown that vinegar supplementation increases satiety after eating a high-carbohydrate meal.***
Apple cider vinegar also helps to slow stomach emptying, which is why you feel more satisfied for a longer period of time after eating.
Feeling increased fullness after a meal reduces the likelihood of snacking and eating fewer calories overall, thereby promoting weight loss.
Apple Cider Vinegar Can Suppress Your Appetite
Researchers based at Imperial College London have found that acetate – a key component in acetic acid – has a central role in appetite regulation.****
