Busted: drinking apple cider vinegar for weight loss

Sep 22, 2020 07:50 IST

It is often claimed that drinking a small amount of apple cider vinegar before a meal can help reduce appetite and help you lose weight but there is very little scientific evidence to prove this claim There are other benefits of the supplement, backed by more research. Loaded with acetic acid, apple cider vinegar is known to be beneficial for diabetics, since it can help lower blood sugar levels and insulin. It also enhances the alkalinity of the body and decreases the levels of blood glucose. However, scientific evidence to prove that ACV may facilitate weight loss is far-fetched. It is a great natural preservative since its components can help kill harmful bacteria. Experts even believe it could be beneficial for the skin, helping with conditions like eczema and dryness by rebalancing pH levels. You must keep in mind that ACV is very acidic in nature and may irritate your throat if taken in large amounts. Experts also warn that it interferes with some drugs like insulin, which may lead to low potassium levels. ACV’s acidic content may even damage your tooth enamel if sipped straight. It's always best to dilute vinegar. You can use apple cider vinegar in your salad dressings or add some to your soups and sauces to ensure that you get the perfect medley of taste and nutrition.
