How to Make Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies & Why You Should
Years ago, apple cider vinegar was all the rage. You couldn't wander through a health food store without coming across dozens of products touting the benefits of apple cider vinegar. Although popular, new superfoods emerged, forcing apple cider vinegar to take a backseat. Once only seen as a traditional home remedy, today, apple cider vinegar’s benefits are backed by science and it’s becoming more popular than ever, including apple cider vinegar gummies!
The unfortunate problem with apple cider vinegar is its distinct tang. Its strong flavor can be off-putting to some palates. Thankfully, you do not have to forgo the health benefits of apple cider vinegar because of its sour tang. You also don’t have to try and choke down pills or tablets. If you want to add the benefits of apple cider vinegar into your routine, look no further than easy to make apple cider gummies and your LĒVO infusion machine.
What Is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar comes from fermented apple juice. Fermentation is a chemical process where microorganisms like yeast, mold, and bacteria break down sugar and starch into alcohol and acids. In the case of apple cider vinegar, bacteria breaks down the sugar in apple juice, altering its makeup and transforming it into sour, tangy vinegar. The enzymes in fermented products like apple cider vinegar, kimchi, sauerkraut, and kombucha are good for digestion and help promote a healthy gut microbiome.
Traditional white vinegar is the product of fermenting grain alcohol into acid, giving white vinegar its more distinct and sour bite. Apple cider vinegar, while pucker-inducing, still retains a touch of sweetness from the apples and tends to yield a brighter and sweeter flavor than white, rice, or red wine vinegar when used in cooking and brines.
Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
Old wives' tales link apple cider vinegar to health benefits ranging from weight loss to heart health and skin solutions. However, there has been some debate about the true power of apple cider vinegar and the health benefits it may provide. Today, science is helping debunk the myths surrounding apple cider vinegar to reinforce the benefits of this popular home remedy.
There is a body of scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of fermented products. Fermentation introduces powerful enzymes and probiotics that are known to help aid digestion, foster a healthy balance of gut bacteria, and boost antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. Due to apple cider vinegar's antimicrobial effects, it has the potential to kill dangerous pathogens, including harmful bacteria. One study indicates that apple cider vinegar may destroy strains of E. coli and MRSA.
Small studies also find that apple cider vinegar may help lower blood sugar levels after meals. Consuming small amounts of vinegar after a meal may improve glycemic control. Although it is not a replacement for blood sugar medications, it may help those with type 2 diabetes better manage their blood sugar levels and avoid dangerous highs and lows.
The same study indicates that apple cider vinegar may also help lower total cholesterol levels and improve heart health, although the research isn’t conclusive yet. However, additional animal studies also suggest that apple cider vinegar may reduce triglyceride levels and help lower cholesterol. It may also reduce blood pressure, another risk factor for the development of heart disease and cardiovascular problems.
One of the most popular uses for apple cider vinegar is to aid weight loss. There are numerous studies on the subject, all with mixed results. Some studies show that consuming apple cider vinegar may help reduce belly fat and aid in weight loss efforts. Other studies indicate that apple cider vinegar can support weight loss, but only when combined with a calorie-restrictive diet.
The bottom line is that an increasing body of research suggests consuming apple cider vinegar daily and incorporating it into your wellness routine can positively impact your overall health.
How to Make Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies
The potential health benefits of apple cider vinegar are numerous. However, that doesn’t mean consuming apple cider vinegar is tasty or 100 percent safe. Apple cider vinegar is acidic. Acid can eventually erode tooth enamel, causing cavities and tooth decay. The acid in vinegar can also cause throat burns and discomfort. If you want to explore the positive benefits of apple cider vinegar with limited side effects, consider taking it in gummy form.
