Shots, juices, and now even chewable fruity apple cider vinegar gummies. From dietary gurus to celebrities like Miranda Kerr and Megan Fox, it feels like the whole world has gone apple cider vinegar (ACV) mad.
But what’s all the hype about?
The health claims surrounding this historical miracle elixir are near-legendary. In fact, Hippocrates - the father of medicine - was using it in Ancient Greece as far back as 400 BC. But if anyone from supermodels and ancient philosophers can see apple cider vinegar benefits, there's got to be some truth to it right?
Let’s take a deeper dive into why apple cider vinegar gummies could be the right choice to help you reach your wellness goals.
1. Gummies are a lot less harmful than the real thing.
If you’ve ever tried to take a swig of apple cider vinegar, you’ll know it’s not the easiest thing to stomach. If you didn’t get knocked out by the smell, you probably felt your insides slowly start to burn.
In reality, drinking concentrated apple cider vinegar can have some nasty side effects. The strong acidity of pure apple cider vinegar can damage your tooth enamel, throat, and oesophagus - especially if you already have acid reflux esophagitis.
Apple cider vinegar gummies give you a safe way to ingest ACV in a healthy amount compared to if you were drinking it straight from the bottle. That means you can reap all the benefits without having to take another pinch-your-nose-and-sip again.
2. A Healthy Complexion
Turns out beauty really does come from within - or at least youthful-looking skin does. Contrary to popular belief, the secret to younger skin isn’t botox, it’s your PH levels. That healthy glow and vibrancy we see in younger skin all comes down to higher PH levels.
In fact, your pH levels are important to your overall skin health. Over time your skin becomes less acidic which can make it more susceptible to dryness, redness, wrinkles, and sensitivity.
Taking ACV gummies daily can do a world of good in supporting the acidity in your skin’s PH levels over time. The probiotic benefits balance out your skin’s pH improving the protective skin barrier.
3. They can lower cholesterol and improve heart health
As Michael Phelps said, “The problem with heart disease is that the first symptom is often fatal.” One great reason to think about taking apple cider vinegar gummies is as a preventative measure to improve your heart health.
Research suggests that apple cider vinegar can help reduce high triglyceride and cholesterol levels, which are known to increase your risk of having a heart attack, stroke, and the risk of other heart problems.
It’s also worth noting that apple cider vinegar is high in alpha-linolenic acid, which has been found to reduce the risk of heart disease in women. One observational study from Harvard showed women who ate salad dressing with vinegar had a reduced risk of heart disease.
4. They’re a great alternative to traditional dietary pills and syrups.
Hate taking pills? Join the club. One study found that 32% of us have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules as a whole. While traditional vitamins and supplements can help us reach our health and wellness goals, they don’t always go down easy.
If you’re anything like us, you don’t need yet another barrier to staying on top of your health. Apple cider gummies are a great alternative to traditional pills and syrups.
Gummies are a fun and delicious way for you to get those essential nutrients to reach your wellness goals whether you’re pills adverse or just want an easier way to get your apple cider vinegar fix.
5. They can help you lose weight
One of ACV’s biggest benefits is losing weight. In fact, Miranda Kerr reportedly uses apple cider vinegar on her salads to stay slim, but is there actually any scientific backing behind this? The answer is yes.
A few small studies suggest that apple cider vinegar can have some great benefits when it comes to supporting weight loss - supported with a good diet and exercise of course.
One study found that people who had apple cider vinegar while on a low-calorie diet lost more weight than those who just stuck to the diet. The same researchers also found that those who took apple cider vinegar daily had a reduced appetite
While there are a lot of big claims surrounding apple cider vinegar, there’s enough research to suggest it can actually have some great benefits for your overall wellness. In saying that, it’s always worth remembering that there’s no such thing as a miracle cure but when used wisely, adding apple cider vinegar gummies to your daily routine can offer a wide range of benefits.
