Two Flat Tummy Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies a day may keep the doctor away. Apple cider vinegar has been used as a remedy since 3300 BC. According to the Natural Standard Herb & Supplement Guide, “In 400 BC, Hippocrates supposedly used ACV as a healing elixir, an antibiotic, and for general health. Samurai soldiers purportedly used a vinegar tonic for strength and power. US Civil War soldiers used a vinegar solution to prevent gastric upset and as a treatment for pneumonia and scurvy.” But what is apple cider vinegar and what makes it so powerful?
What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Vinegar comes from the French “vin aigre” which means sour wine. Like grapes are to wine, apple cider vinegar is essentially fermented apple juice. As the Natural Standard Herb & Supplement Guide describes, “Apple cider vinegar is prepared by pulverizing apples into a slurry of juice and pulp and then adding yeast and sugars.” The fermentation process creates acetic acid, which is what gives vinegar its sharp flavor and pungent odor. Vinegar also contains many other ingredients, including amino acids, mineral salts, and nonvolatile organic acids.
Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits
ACV is also rich with B-vitamins and polyphenols (plant-based antioxidants). Perhaps that’s why the free radical scavenging activity of apple cider vinegar is so high. The University of Chicago Medicine states, “All in all, the probiotics, acetic acid, and the nutrients in ACV are responsible for its health benefits.” They also tout that ACV may have a modest effect on weight loss, as found in this study. ACV also acts as an antimicrobial against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Bacillus subtilis.
However, drinking ACV is super acidic and doesn’t taste very good going down the hatch, no matter how helpful it may be. Save your tooth enamel and tastebuds while still getting the benefits of apple cider vinegar with Flat Tummy’s Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies.
