Apples must be exposed to yeast, which ferments carbs into alcohol. After adding bacteria, alcohol ferments into acetic acid. Here are my top 10 ACV benefits.  

1. Boosts Stomach Acid Production

ACV has a lot of acetic acid, which has been shown in studies to help people who don't make enough stomach acid (hypochlorhydria) make more of it.  

2. Healthy Cholesterol

High cholesterol is bad for you because it can damage or oxidize cholesterol. ACV can keep cholesterol from doing this. (1,2) ACV has also been shown to help keep cholesterol and fats in a healthy range  

3. Healthy Weight Loss

ACV has been shown in many studies to help people lose weight in a healthy way compared to groups that didn't take ACV. ACV has also been shown to naturally lower the number of calories people eat, which can lead to a natural diet low in calories.  

4. Healthy Blood Sugar

ACV has been demonstrated to reduce and maintain blood sugar in many trials. ACV has been shown to decrease insulin's reaction to sugar by 20% and may prevent the breakdown of sugars and simple carbs.  

5. Less Cravings

ACV gave people more energy and made them feel fuller after eating bread or bagels than a group that didn't eat ACV.  

6. Powerful Antioxidant

ACV contains antioxidants like polyphenols that decrease degenerative diseases. Antioxidants in the lymphatic system boost immunity and detoxification. ACV antioxidants specifically reduce stress-induced oxidation.  

7. Topical Disinfectant  

It has been shown that ACV can kill germs when applied to the skin. People have used vinegar to clean and treat ear infections, nail fungus, head lice, and warts.  

8. Improves Assimilation of Nutrients

ACV has also been shown to slow down the emptying of the stomach. This may help break down food better in the stomach, which makes it easier for the body to absorb nutrients.  

9. Inhibits Candida

ACV has been shown to be effective at killing Candida spp. in a study that looked at how well it treats mouth candida.  

10. Blood Pressure Support 

Studies have shown that ACV helps keep blood pressure in a healthy range by making it easier for the body to absorb calcium from the big intestine. Lowering blood pressure is linked to this process.
