Apple cider vinegar is a fermented liquid made from aged apple cider and has many uses. It’s a tasty ingredient for making salad dressings, but some people regard it as more. They believe that consuming apple cider vinegar makes it easier to lose weight, and may even improve their metabolic health. Is there any truth to this idea? Let’s look at what science has found so far about apple cider vinegar and its potential weight loss benefits.
How Apple Cider Vinegar Might Enhance Weight Loss: Studies show that apple cider vinegar modestly lowers the rise in glucose you get after eating a food. With apple cider vinegar on board, your glucose doesn’t rise as much after a meal, and your body doesn’t need to make as much insulin. When there’s less insulin around, your body can more easily break down fat and is less likely to store it, leading to weight gain. Another way to look at it is apple cider vinegar improves insulin sensitivity, which is good for your waistline and metabolic health. When you have better insulin sensitivity, you’re less likely to accumulate deep belly fat called visceral fat.
