Apple cider vinegar is incredibly popular in the alternative and natural health community. There seem to be endless claims as to what it can help with, from promoting weight loss and aiding detoxification to boosting energy and banishing bad breath. This may seem like a recent trend, but the fact is, using food and plants as medicinal aids is not new at all. People have been doing so for thousands of years, long before modern pharmaceuticals came to be.
Because of apple cider vinegar’s resurgent popularity and the vast numbers of claims made about it, scientific research on the benefits of apple cider vinegar is being conducted on an ever-increasing scale. When it comes to gut health and digestion, apple cider vinegar (ACV) is the tonic du jour. Continue reading to learn more about using apple cider vinegar to help with digestion and gut health and Nutratrek’s Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies.
How Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help With Digestion?
Let’s take a look at how ACV is made. First, loosely strained apple cider (crushed apple juice) is fermented with yeast to produce alcohol. Then, bacteria are added to the apple alcohol solution which gets further fermented by the bacteria. If it were wine, this would be the last step. But to make apple cider vinegar, the fermented apple alcohol is allowed to turn into acetic acid. That is how vinegar is produced.
Since the cider is not very well filtered, additional components of the apple will still be present once it turns to acetic acid. These include proteins, enzymes, and the bacteria that turned the solution into vinegar in the first place. This unpasteurized, non-filtered ACV is murky and contains probiotic bacteria. It’s generally called “the mother,” and it’s what gives ACV most of its health benefits.
Our stomach produces acid necessary for digestion, but as we age, we make less of it. Too little stomach acid and not enough good gut bacteria can lead to bloating or other uncomfortable symptoms. Many people believe that the acetic acid in ACV can make up for this loss of stomach acid and swear by apple cider vinegar to reduce bloating and gas.
However, before treating any digestion problems with apple cider vinegar, you should get checked out by a physician. Indigestion can be a symptom of some more serious illnesses and ACV is not a miracle cure. If it helps with digestion, great — but you should only try it after having the treatment cleared by your doctor.
When Should I Take Apple Cider Vinegar to Help Digestion?
Most people who take apple cider vinegar to help with digestion take a shot of it just before a meal. If they take it in liquid form, it might be diluted in water or juice or another tasty drink without too much sugar. Taking liquid ACV can have several unintended consequences, though. It can damage your teeth, irritate or burn your mouth or throat, and upset your stomach. It can also aggravate the symptoms of an ulcer.
To avoid the negative consequences of drinking liquid apple cider vinegar, consider instead taking Nutratrek Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies. The flavor alone is enough to convert just about anyone. There is no hint of ACV’s unpleasant vinegar taste — they are naturally sweet and apple-flavored. Reviewers call them “yummy” and say they “taste great.” Two of our ACV gummies are equal to one shot of ACV, so if you are taking them to aid in digestion, you’d take two gummies before your meal.
