Apple Cider Vinegar: the new buzzword of health fanatics, nutritionists, celebs and generally anyone who has ever experienced gut/digestive, weight problems or wants to detox.  There is a lot of recent hype when it comes to Apple Cider Vinegar as it is touted to have a whole host of general health benefits - even for us couch potatoes! Some of these advantages of Apple Cider Vinegar are said to include supporting weight management, improvements in gut/digestive health, increased energy, lowered blood pressure and a boost to your immune system (which let’s be honest we could all do with during the current pandemic!). But is it REALLY a miracle cure for health issues?

For centuries, Apple Cider Vinegar has been used as a natural remedy for a whole host of reasons including the treatment of a range of ailments (e.g colds and coughs), as an antiseptic during war time and for cooking/preserving food.  However, recent scientific studies conducted on Apple Cider Vinegar support many traditional beliefs of its health benefits such as its gut supporting, immunity boosting and weight controlling properties. The following are just SOME of the research backed ways daily doses of Apple Cider Vinegar can support your health:

Boosts Immunity

Apple Cider Vinegar has historically been used as a treatment for colds because of its antioxidant properties. It contains a bacterial culture called ‘The Mother’ which has strains of good bacteria (also called probiotics) as well as proteins and enzymes. Probiotics have shown in studies to have an immune boosting effect and are beneficial for health as they restrict the growth of harmful gut bacteria. By protecting your immune system, you are better able to fight off illness and infections, therefore supporting your immune system.

Supports Weight Management

Some studies have found significant weight loss for people who restricted their calorie intake and also took Apple Cider Vinegar. They lost more weight than people who restricted their calorie intake but did not take Apple Cider Vinegar. This may be because Apple Cider Vinegar also contains properties which increase the feelings of being full and satisfied after a meal, which in turn actually leads to a reduction in the calories consumed, therefore resulting in weight loss.

Supports Heart Health

Research suggests Apple Cider Vinegar may support in maintaining healthy cardiovascular function. One of the main components of Apple Cider Vinegar is acetic acid, which has, in several research studies, shown to lower cholesterol and Triacylglycerol's due to its antioxidant properties.

Improves Gut and Digestive Health

Apple Cider Vinegar is produced by apples going through a fermentation process which produces Acetic Acid and probiotics otherwise known has gut friendly bacteria. Studies have shown that Apple Cider Vinegar does contain antioxidants. Antioxidants and probiotics support in cleansing as well as maintaining gut health and the digestive system.

So...what's the downside?

Alas, as amazing as all of these benefits seem to be ACV does have a few flaws. Traditional Apple Cider Vinegar is highly acidic and can cause damage to enamel/teeth, as well as being unkind to your stomach and causing acid reflux. Anyone who has taken even a sniff of Apple Cider Vinegar knows that it is not exactly the most appealing of substances. For many people it can be very difficult to drink as it is not pleasant in taste and smell but also due to some of the other side effects.

Don't despair though...Nutratrek has perfected the solution to all of these problems so that you can easily incorporate Apple Cider Vinegar into your busy life.

How can I add ACV to my daily routine?

Nutratrek have recently introduced the sweeter side of Apple Cider Vinegar in the form of gummies. They not only taste great (seriously they are delicious) but as the gummies contain the ‘mother’ (the most beneficial part of Apple Cider Vinegar) they retain all the goodness without all of the unpleasant side effects and not so great taste. The gummies also contain folic acid, Vitamins (B6 and B12) and contain superfoods like Beetroot and Pomegranate, plus they are free from artificial flavor, artificial colors and preservatives, gluten, gelatin, dairy and soy. The added Vitamins support skin and hair health as well as boosting energy levels.

Whether you choose our ACV gummies, probiotic gummies, turmeric gummies, or a combination of all three, Nutratrek gummies are the one essential you need. Why go for traditional Apple Cider Vinegar when you have something so delicious and equally beneficial?
