Apple cider vinegar - more than just seasoning!

You've no doubt heard about the enthusiasm for apple cider vinegar everywhere - be it on blogs, social media platforms or in articles. Not only is it a popular salad dressing, it is also often touted as a panacea that helps with weight loss, lowers blood sugar levels, regulates cholesterol levels and strengthens the immune system. Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn't it? Let's shed some light on this apple cider vinegar myth and take a closer look at some of these claims. What can this supposed miracle drink really do?

Apple cider vinegar is the all-rounder of the traditional medicine cabinet and is often mentioned in connection with weight loss. We have taken a closer look at it.

Gewichtsverlust durch Apfelessig - Mythos oder Realität?

Well, how about this: In the morning, right after getting up, a glass of water with a dash of apple cider vinegar - it's supposed to work wonders and make the pounds tumble off. Sounds tempting, doesn't it? But does this supposed secret weapon against excess kilos really deliver what it promises?

A study in Lebanon, published in BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health, investigated the effects of apple cider vinegar on weight loss in overweight and obese adolescents and young adults.
 (Go to reseach study - "Apple cider vinegar for weight management in Lebanese adolescents and young adults with overweight and obesity: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study").

What did they do?

The participants were given either a daily dose of apple cider vinegar or a placebo over a period of 12 weeks. The results showed that taking apple cider vinegar led to an improvement in anthropometric and metabolic parameters. These improvements were observed independently of diet and physical activity, indicating that they were indeed caused by the intake of apple cider vinegar. Animal studies suggest that acetate, the main component of apple cider vinegar, can increase energy expenditure and reduce fat intake by regulating appetite and satiety.

However, human studies on the effect of vinegar on body weight are limited. Nevertheless, the results suggest that regular intake of apple cider vinegar may have potential benefits for improving metabolic parameters in overweight and obese individuals. Further research is needed to understand the long-term effects and impact of apple cider vinegar on different population groups.

The effect of ACV (Apple Cidar Vinegar) on blood sugar levels

When we look at the health-promoting aspects of apple cider vinegar, its effect on blood sugar levels is often emphasised. Is this really true or just a legend from the apple cider vinegar fan club?

Apple cider vinegar can indeed help to lower blood sugar levels by increasing insulin sensitivity. One study showed that taking apple cider vinegar before a carbohydrate-rich meal can reduce the rise in blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. So maybe there is something to it after all!

The list of positive effects of the miracle cure apple cider vinegar seems to go on and on. While browsing, we also came across the following thesis: "Apple cider vinegar as a tried and tested remedy for sore throats and/or bad breath"

It is a fact that apple cider vinegar has an antibacterial effect. The acetic acid can kill bacteria and germs. This is why apple cider vinegar is also suitable for "internal" use. First gargle with pure apple cider vinegar and then spit it out. A second tablespoon of apple cider vinegar can then be swallowed slowly after gargling.

However, vinegar is not only suitable for gargling, but also for quickly disinfecting small wounds. It can also relieve itching, for example after insect bites.

Which apple cider vinegar is the best?

This naturally raises the big question: which apple cider vinegar is the best? And which one has the best positive properties? On supermarket shelves and online you can find filtered and unfiltered, organic and conventional apple cider vinegar, pasteurised and unpasteurised, with and without vinegar mother, as well as with and without additives. A real variety! Filtered apple cider vinegar is a clear liquid, while its unfiltered counterpart is cloudy. The reason? Well, the unfiltered vinegar contains proteins, enzymes and good bacteria that are missing in its filtered counterpart. This explanation alone is an indicator. We naturally want to retain the good components of the vinegar. At the same time, without additives and as naturally as possible. We therefore recommend naturally cloudy & unpasteurised organic apple cider vinegar.

And of course we also have the perfect product for this from Carandini in Italy. This fresh, fruity and slightly flavoursome apple vinegar is made from organic apple juice. Naturally fermented, unpasteurised and unfiltered! As a result, this vinegar retains its natural properties and contains the vinegar mother.
