I'm up in the air when it comes to apple cider vinegar. This supplement has been around for quite some time and it's claims have been quite extensive.
The evidence has not been very conclusive for me to draw any solid recommendations from. The major claim to apple cider vinegar is it's fat burning properties.
Of course, just about everything advertised from weight loss companies is a miracle fat burning supplement. Does apple cider vinegar contain a magical fat burning property? Well, I can't seem to find any evidence that suggests it does.
Apple cider vinegar has long been thought of as a great fat burning supplement. The ancient Egyptians invented the cider for weight loss benefits.
The apple cider vinegar diet began back in the seventies and was quite popular. The procedure for taking this cider is to take it before eating your food so that it will burn the fat and will reduce the food carvings.
You just have to take a spoon full of this vinegar. It is said that the vinegar somehow increases the body's metabolism and helps to burn fat. Due to the health benefits of apple cider vinegar this is gaining a lot of popularity nowadays.
However, these claims have not been backed up. There is no evidence to suggest that apple cider does in fact help burn fat.
There is simply no evidence found that backs up the claims of the apple cider vinegar diet. There is an amount of pectin found in the vinegar that may be the reason that people believe in the cider's ability to help lose weight, but it is only a trace amount. Apple pectin is a natural dietary fibre and helps aid the digestive system. Hence, when you take vinegar you should be precise.
Just reading on the website does not give you the full information about the vinegar diet. The best way to examine is to apply it in your life style, your diet and amount of exercise and make adjustments accordingly. However, if you do decide to add apple cider vinegar to your diet, don't expect a miracle.
Based on the information I've seen, the health benefits regarding apple cider vinegar is inconclusive.
However, apple cider vinegar is used as a treatment for other problems such skin problems, sunburn, and dandruff. It is also said that it helps in sore throats and even claims to lower cholesterol.
However, I can't give my recommendation for the use of apple cider vinegar for losing weight. There is just not enough evidence to support the fat burning claims at this time.
