Over the years, apple cider vinegar and cayenne pepper have remained two of the best-kept secrets for supporting a healthy metabolism, helping to maintain insulin sensitivity after a high-carb meal, and curbing hunger.

Apple cider vinegar has long been known as a “thermogenic” product. Thermogenesis is the process of helping to burn body fat to generate body heat.  Researchers have found that the acetic acid in apple cider vinegar:

 

» May prevent  the complete digestion of complex carbohydrates

» May turn on genes to signal your body to accumulate and store less fat

» May make you feel more full and less likely to eat large amounts of food when taken before meals

» May boost your body's absorption of important minerals from the foods you eat

» Increases the acidity in your stomach to support the digestion and movement if your meal through your GI tract

 

Cayenne, a spice commonly used for adding heat to cuisine, contains an active ingredient called capsaicin. Capsaicin works in your body as a stimulant, helping to speed up metabolism and may also help increase calorie burning.

 

Ideal for supplementing a ketogenic diet or for anyone wanting to boost their body’s thermogenesis, Fermented Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne contains Organic Fermented Apple Cider Vinegar powder and Organic Fermented Cayenne Pepper powder.

A Dietitian Nutritionist Explains the Real Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, can a glass of apple cider vinegar supercharge your attempts to become stronger and healthier?

Many people believe the answer is “yes.” In fact, a segment of the population consumes apple cider vinegar regularly – even daily – in the belief that the liquid contains powers that protect your health.

Following are some of the claims made on behalf of apple cider vinegar – and a look at what science says.

Possible Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Blood sugar levels

Of all the medical claims made for apple cider vinegar, the notion that it can keep your blood sugar levels in check is probably the best supported, says Jenna Gorham, a registered dietitian nutritionist and founder of Jenna Gorham Nutrition Consulting.  

In fact, several studies have found that combining any type of vinegar with starchy foods can lower blood sugar levels in people with Type-2 diabetes.

“The vinegar seems to work by blocking the absorption of the starch,” Gorham says.

Still, she says more research is needed before anyone can definitively claim that apple cider vinegar can help keep blood sugar levels in check.

And the news is not all good. Some research indicates that adding vinegar to the diet negatively impacts blood sugar control in Type-1 diabetics.

Weight loss

Millions of Americans dream of a magic pill that will help them slim down. Such a quick fix continues to elude science, so some dieters have turned instead to apple cider vinegar as a weight loss elixir.

And evidence suggests they might be on to a good thing. A 2009 study out of Japan compared obese people who consumed vinegar with those who did not. Researchers found that "body weight, BMI (body mass index), visceral fat area, waist circumference, and serum triglyceride levels were significantly lower," in those who consumed vinegar.

A 2012 Dutch study also found a link between consuming apple cider vinegar and weight loss. However, many experts remain skeptical that vinegar can help you shed pounds.

Heart health

Several studies have hinted that consuming vinegar can improve your health in heart-friendly ways. Research indicates that vinegar might lower blood pressure, triglyceride levels and total cholesterol.

However, there is a major caveat to these findings: Thus far, all these results have come from testing laboratory rodents. No human studies have yet been performed.

So, the jury remains out on whether apple cider vinegar is truly “heart smart.”

Teeth whitening

Some people swear that apple cider vinegar whitens their teeth. But Gorham says this is probably the least plausible way to use vinegar to improve your health.

“Apple cider vinegar is an acid,” Gorham says. “Putting acid on your teeth will wear away at the enamel.”

In fact, the pH level of apple cider vinegar is roughly equivalent to what you find in soda. And we all know what too much Coke can do to our teeth.

Adding apple cider vinegar to your diet

There are many ways to add apple cider vinegar to your diet. “I would recommend including it in salad dressings, marinades, sauces (and) baked goods,” Gorham says.

If you take medications and plan to add large amounts of apple cider vinegar to your diet, it might be wise to consult a physician. Gorham says the vinegar can adversely interact with some drugs and blunt their effectiveness.

If you intend to drink apple cider vinegar, Gorham recommends diluting it in a glass of water. Doing so will reduce the pH level of the vinegar.
