For centuries, people have used apple cider vinegar as an at-home remedy and cooking staple. Its anti-inflammatory properties and various health benefits have been helpful for people looking to lower blood sugar, improve digestion and much more(1).
Vinegar is traditionally produced using fruit juices such as grapes, apples and coconuts. Like most types of vinegar, apple cider vinegar is produced through a fermentation process in which apples and yeast create a chemical reaction to produce sugar and alcohol. Added bacteria then continue to ferment the mixture and create an acetic acid, which gives the vinegar its strong smell and taste(2).
There are various benefits to incorporating apple cider vinegar into your overall diet. The unfiltered part of apple cider vinegar creates a cloudy looking substance, commonly known as the mother, which includes strands of good bacteria and digestive enzymes that can support and even contribute to weight loss(2).
Studies show apple cider vinegar can help reduce obesity-related conditions such as cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and strokes(3). Some research shows that patients with Type 2 diabetes who took apple cider vinegar had lower glucose and insulin responses to sugars and starches, particularly when taking the supplement after a meal(1). Other studies show that the acetic bacteria in apple cider vinegar has also helped reduce muscle damage and inflammation after exercise(2).
Due to the high amount of acetic acid, apple cider vinegar in its liquid form has a very strong smell and taste. While it can be mixed with water or taken directly, some people prefer to take an apple cider vinegar supplement to avoid the bitter taste and unpleasant effects on the stomach and throat. A supplement likePhysician's Choice Apple Cider Vinegar contains all the benefits of natural apple cider vinegar and offers additional benefits in its unique blend of ingredients.
Physician's Choice Apple Cider Vinegar capsules contain additional ingredients like chili pepper extract and ginger root. Capsimax, a patented natural extract of red hot peppers, helps burn fat in the body by increasing the body’s natural metabolism. A fast metabolism is essential to burning fat as it helps the body digest food quickly and store fewer calories as fat. Chili peppers have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for many years to target different organs and tissues in the body and are a safe ingredient to incorporate into a daily diet (3).
Physician's Choice Apple Cider Vinegar capsules also contain organic ginger root, which offers antioxidant properties that help detoxify the body and protect from free radicals in the environment and prevent cell damage. Ginger root has also been shown to lower blood pressure, indigestion, reduce nausea and prevent muscle pain(4).
All three ingredients inPhysician's Choice Apple Cider Vinegar capsules work together to target high blood pressure, strengthen digestion and boost metabolism. Consuming ginger, red hot chilis and apple cider vinegar can upset the stomach due to their powerful taste and acidic qualities, but this supplement lets you avoid the harshness and still reap all the benefits.
