Cider Vinegar Capsule
CIDER VINEGAR CAPSULE - Apple cider vinegar is a type of vinegar that is made from the fermentation of apple cider. Fermentation involves a process in which sugars in food are broken down by bacteria and yeast.
A study conducted showed that when subjects with type II diabetes consumed two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar at night their glucose levels were lowered in the morning by at least 4-6%. Apple cider vinegar contains an active ingredient called acetic acid. Acetic acid is relatively sour and responsible for the lip puckering response that many people have when consuming apple cider vinegar. Acetic acid has been studied for its ability to inhibit carbohydrate digesting enzymes. This means that enzymes like amylase, sucrase, maltase and lactase are not activated so when vinegar is in the gut these sugars and starches are less likely to be absorbed, thus they don’t have an effect on glucose levels.
Apple cider vinegar contains pectin. Pectin is a type of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber (also known as water soluble fiber) helps to lower LDL cholesterol levels by “grabbing” and essentially absorbing cholesterol and taking it out of the body. Apple cider vinegar also contains amino acid that helps to neutralize LDL cholesterol.
A study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, reported that when consuming apple cider vinegar they felt fuller and ate less. This may be due to the pectin that is found in apple cider vinegar. The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry published a study that implies that apple cider vinegar reduces fat and also helps break fat up in the body. Researchers in this study believed that acetic acid may have the ability to turn on genes that are capable of oxidizing fatty acids.
